Having realised this morning i need 2 new tyres, this site has come up as the best value for money after getting quotes from garages this morning and surfing the net.
The fitting is done from a selection of centres, with the nearest to me being a National Tyres Centre, which their site quoted me as £30 more expensive!

Just thought this may be of use if you need new tryes.

BTW you get Tesco clubcard points added as well

    Also try https://www.blackcircles.com just ordered 4x Michelin Energy E3B 165/70 R13 T for £165 all in (using 5% discount code). Blackcircles also has a tyre fitting place just down the road from me but I guess that's luck living near a big city. This worked out cheaper than buying the tyres alone from https://www.mytyres.co.uk and getting them installed elsewhere.

    I guess it depends on what your after, and the size of your tyres. The michelin one's I'm getting are only £60 more for all 4 than the cheapest possible ones - and hopefully the manufacturer's claims about tyre mileage and rolling resistance helping reduce fuel consumption a little will be borne out.

    Be careful with tyre-shopper as for my car (using vehicle reg and vehicle type), they quoted the incorrect tyre size. Refer to your car manual and the tyre side walls bearing in mind some cars occasionally have different sized tyres on the front and back.

    Also after searching this site before originally and looking now after this post, I have made a discovery. When you put in your tyre size, you get 3 tyres, at least for me on first viewing the "view the rest of the range" option wasn't obvious for me. Tyres I ordered from blackcircles would have cost £160 without any discount code. Only a fiver and £1.60 of tesco clubcard points missed out on so not the end of the world. Cheaper but too late for me now :(

    Try Micheldever Tyres, always seem to be the cheapest.

  • I used tyre shopper last week and found them to be superb. As a MSE (in the making ) the Tesco points were a bonus!

    Cheapest I found were at my local tyre fitters where they managed to beat Mytyres by offering the same tyres for £4 more inclusive of fitting and balancing than Mytyres wanted for supply only.

    I've added FastTyres into the Motoring Index & Links - if there are any online tyre places missing let me know :D

    Some people seem to get good tyre prices at costco, but that depends on whether there's one near you etc.
  • I ordered a pair of tyres on etyres site, using the voucher code. I then got a phone call from them giving me a real load of rubbish.
    • They wanted to charge me to move the rear tyres to the front (they have never charged me for this when I've used them before) claiming they needed to be re-balanced.
    • They also insisted I would need to produce a voucher to the fitter to claim the discount, I see no mention of this from all the successful contributors here and elsewhere.
    • The amount sent to me in the email confirmation was not the same as I had agreed at the time of payment as some of your other contributors have mentioned.
    I have now cancelled my order and will think twice before I use etyres again as I feel I can't trust them.
