Tyres

OK, so the short story is that I'm buying dave's goldy black alloys for teh new car. if i dont like that colour, i can always change it to white or black... but anyway, not the point...

I need to get a rough estimate on the price of 4 new tyres, fitted. ATS seem to have a lack of pricing, and are closed here on a sunday. I'll call tomorrow anyway, but its just a case of how much i can expect to be looking at paying. doesnt have to be anything decent for now either.

online place called black circles is a goot shop to use or just to get a rough idea of what you should be paying if you shop locally

Depends on what size and tyre you want to fit.

Just to let you all know since i was stupid enough not to in the first place...

but yeah, ATS is literally, well, I can see it perfectly, read the phone number as soon as i step outside... so, its convenient.

Black Circles seem really good from their reviews, so may aswell give them a go. and TOYOs at 71 seems good, plus 10 cashback when you buy 4, so... 68.50 per tyre. not to shabby to me =]

Toyo's are pretty soft, just for a heads up. I don't thrash mine and I got just short of 7K out of some T1-R's on the front.

I got my most recent set from here: http://www.etyres.co.uk/

They come to your house/work place and fit them there for you. Really good service.

TOYOs are good for about 10k max but seem to be very good in hot/cold weather.

all the best

well here in england, its either really cold, or really hot XD

I'd probably be looking at budget for now, just until i get other bits and pieces done to it. I can't afford to go overly crazy with things atm
