One is better off with a full set of Michelin CrossClimates for the same price: better ride quality, lower noise and better steering feel as well as the cold weather benefits and with no penalty in wear rate or fuel economy.
£47.99 fitted at Costco
Plenty of older cars on the road still running on 13 inch wheels. Mk1 Clios, Pug 106s, Saxo's, Seicentos etc. You just can't win on this site - you post a lease deal and everyone tells you you'd be better off buying an old car instead. Then people mock you for posting deals related to older cars!
What kind of vehicle has 13" tyres? Not seen so small for many years. Even fiestas/corsas are 14“ and 15"
14p cheaper @ F1autocentres. £50.40 fitted.

Tyre shopper 5% discount on all tyres over £200 spend
Just received email from Tyre Shopper advising an extra 5% of any tyres when you spend £200 or more. I recently bought some Cross climates through these and they were by far the ch… Read more
I will admit nexens n8000 are very good cheap tyres, had them a few times but now tyres have come down in price I go for Goodyear eagle f1's imo best tyres u can buy.
Budget tyres I've sworn by them for years but always check the reviews first . Some of you might have herd of kuhmo or nexen or linglong all started as cheap budgets until they got established.
No, Chinese company marketing in Canada.
Like for like with the OP's deal it's £141. Most people want new valve, don't have a balancer at home and don't want to take their old tyres home. While I'm on a rant (lol) it does annoy me that they keep calling it 'wheel balancing'. No, its tyre balancing! It's balancing out the imperfections in the tyre manufacture. You want me to pay 10%-15% of the tyre price to sort out a product issue! I don't get charged extra at the cafe to scrape the burnt off the toast!
thanks sorry i was looking for 175/65/14 for my car 8)

Avon - ZV5 - 205/50VR15 - Car Tyre - C/C/71 £50.71 Fitted @ Tyre-Shopper£50.71
A decent tyre for a decent (fitted) price in my mind. I hope that it helps someone. Quidco 4% and TCB 5% also available if you so choose.
Good post highlighting some good alternatives. I specifically needed the 205 size to match the existing tyres on the rear of my car. The Federal 595 RS-R certainly looks like they would be fun to experience on a cold wet day!
Ah sorry, I voted it cold on the wim. Maybe on reflection it isnt that bad. I would normally buy it online and pay locals to fit it. (depending on your location its between £8-16 per tyre fitting) Also if I had to go with that specific profile I would go with this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1x-Summer-KUMHO-ECSTA-SPT-KU31-205-50R15-86V-FSL-/381368819149?fits=Tyre+Width%3A205%7CAspect+Ratio%3A50%7CRim+Diameter%3A15&hash=item58cb5a5dcd Or if you want to spend a little more - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1x-Summer-BRIDGESTONE-POTENZA-ADR-RE002-205-50R15-86W-/351358649714?fits=Tyre+Width%3A205%7CAspect+Ratio%3A50%7CRim+Diameter%3A15&hash=item51ce9b8572 ...Or if you want silly stiff tyres and and exciting moments in the rain: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-Federal-595-RS-R-Tyres-Track-Day-Race-Road-205-50-R15-89W-XL-ALL-SIZES-/231408523662?fits=Tyre+Width%3A205%7CAspect+Ratio%3A50%7CRim+Diameter%3A15&hash=item35e105d98e (but I would go 195, or 215 for market demand of tyres)
Tyre wear update**** Had these tyrea fitted on the front of my mondeo. Done about 12000 mls in 6 months and still plenty of thread left (about 5mm). Tyres had great dry and wet grip so I can't complain about that however, both tyres were constantly underinflated. Had the valves replaced twice and still the same. After MOT I sent the tyres back to Bridgestone as I had an advisory stating that both of them are cracking on the interrior. After about 2 months I received a letter saying that it was my fault for the tyres cracking as I ran them underinflated. In retrospect, I am happy with how much miles I got out of them for the price paid although I feel kinda cheated. Im running pirrellis now and they never needed inflating since I fitted them.
Why are they great? It all depends on the criteria you apply to your purchase. It looks a terrible tred pattern for the wet and the dry performance would be down to the compound (a good grippy compound I would not expect to last no more than 6000 miles).
Similar price at tyreleader http://www.tyreleader.co.uk/car-tyres/bridgestone/potenza-adrenalin-re002/235-40-r18-95w-72443 .....just have to get them fitted at your choice of local garage (usually £5 to £10 all in).
This is a good price. Just looking around I think most of the tyres for this size seem to be lower than when I was looking around in October last year for my Mondeo. Also note that Kwik Fit have the Goodyear Eagle F1 for ~£121 fitted with £20 cashback if you buy 2 and Michelin Pilot sport 3 are ~£125 each no cash back though. Asda tyres had these Bridgestones at £111 fitted so this is a good deal.

My advice would be to stay well clear of tyreshopper and national tyres. Terrible companies. Full details here: https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.tyre-shopper.co.uk/550be0510000ff0002d65bdd
Good price for that particular tyre though personally would have went for the £50-£55 mark and gone for Goodyear or Pirelli's P1/P4. Avon's rarely ever make any top ten tyre buys and these in particular are quite a noisy tyre and terrible in the wet (Live in N.Ireland its always wet lol). Hot anyhow since cheap price.
Tyre shopper is national tyres just a subsidiary company
Tyre Shopper use National for fitting. Don't believe there is any other link between the companies. I used to use them all the time until National f....d four of my alloy wheels. Manager of the branch arranged for a refurbishment, still waiting. He told me there is no direct link between the companies.
Looks a good price, had avons before, decent tyre, but the Goodyear look a better buy.
My tyres were cheaper pretty much everywhere else unfortunately ..
Hi, I am aware that it is not the cheapest in the market. F1 Autocentre offer cheaper than them. But, I can't find anywhere that could offer the Lifetime Tyre Guarantee. Because I had a bad experience of having to buy another new tyre to replace a 2-month-old tyre due to the punctual happen at the edge of the tyres. With the Tyre Guarantee, I am cover on punctual repair or replacement. Paying £7.50 to take the risk away from me, I think it is well worth it. But, Watch out on their Wheel alignment. They claimed to have the best and the most accurate Wheel alignment machine, but it is the worst. Both of my front tyres worn out on the outer edge, National Tyres checked the tracking and said it is within tolerance, but another 2 independent garages checked the tracking and said it is miles out. I'll only use the advantages of the Tyre Guarantee by buying the tyres from the tyreshopper, but get all the alignment check / done when need be from other garages.
I know they're the spawn of the devil but if it's more convenient Kwik Fit will price match online suppliers including Asda Tyres (as mentioned by a previous poster) and Costco, have had them match both of these in the past few years.
Same tyre here for £71.50 fitted....... ETB 205 55 16
Halfords will do them for £69.82 each provided you buy 2 or more tyres and you can get 5.05% at TCB if you book online. Unfortunately the free wheel alignment check & adjust offer that I used last month has now ended.
