Thumbs up New falken tyres

If anyone is looking to fit new tyres (as I am) both Halfords Autocentre and AA Tyres have offers - 280 for 5 tyres fitted is not bad.

A few place I have tried for replacement tyres have told me their offer only applies to four or five tyres of the same size. I asked about cars that had different sizes front and rear as standard. Basically I was told sorry 4 / 5 the same size only.

I now use Mytyres or Blackcircles for tyres. They have local fitters.

I assume that there aren't that many people in the market to change ALL 5 tyres at once, or indeed are actually requiring five new tyres at the same time. Personally, I've got some rears needing replacing soon but the front are fine, for obvious reasons - as is the spare. I'm just gonna get two new matching tyres from the cheapest place I can find at the time.

Still, not a bad offer - if you can get them to agree to differing tyre sizes and one is actually needing 5 boots all at once. I suppose if one doesn't need five new tyres right away, the remaining 'spares' could be stockpiled for future use......

At the price of the offer, that is something to consider worthwhile. Store in loft until need. 56 per tyre is economy price, Good price for Falkens, not uber-cheap unheard of brand prices.

Up until about five years ago, my family always bought FALKENs .. Pleased with them on our 620ti, MG ZS and Rover 25s. Not now, locally FALKEN suppliers had a price hike about six years ago and I made a switch to UNIROYAL Rainsport 2s, and now the better Rainsport 3s since then. Very happy with RAINSPORT 3s which do what it says on the tin. Perform well in adverse wet conditions, Dry road performance good too and wear rates acceptable.

As always shop around There can be a wide range of prices offered for the same items. Bargains to be had if patient.

Just to clarify the offer is available on pairs of tyres not just if you are buying 5 as I am.

New Falken Tyres

According to Halfrauds website (Bristol) this price is "Fully Fitted". As already said - very good price.

I'm asking if I've missed something in the offer, since you said for 5 tyres summed 280, I endup 304

I'm not saying the offer isn't good.
Now you can breath....

I have been looking at these tyres for a while now as mine will need replacing soon.

However I cannot seem to get matching speed ratings for front/rear. They seem to be W rated for rear and V for fronts.

Does this make a difference? Its a 135.
