Have an NCT next week and need to grt some tires replaced. Just wondering where the cheapest place is to purchase them and have them fitted.
what size of tyre. What kind of performance (wet handling, traction, etc.) are you after?
well the car is a vw bora with standard tires, not sure exactly what tires are on it at the moment, will have to check later.
I paided 50 quid a tyre for my Passat, the bora prob has same tyres.....I get them off a bloke in Cavan thou!!
I recently got a couple tyres repaired at Butler's Garage in Harolds Cross, they have a huge selection of tyres, very reasonably priced, helpful guys too, you could give them a ring? 4964542
What part of Dublin you in? just thought of a place on N3, just after you come off the Blanchardstown/Clonee by pass there is a garage on your left called Mannings, my cousin get all his tyres off them and says they have decent prices! never have bought off them myself!!
Something cheap from 'a Cavan man' ???
Well I'll be damned !
My moto! never pay full price!
Get your prices from here and then see if your local tyre centre can match it for the same rubber.
Yep I agree. I use this site as a guide but habve never actually bought from them !
I tried to get a tyre fitter to match them and he wasn't even close. So I bought from eiretyres and had the fitter fit them.
Did exactly the same, checked a couple of local places and none could come close on price (kwik-fit said they would but the tyre turned out to be some cheap-ass knock-off "that are exactly the same" )
Same here,have 4 17" tyres ready for fitting (255/40 and 235/45), took 3 days to deliver them too, , no tyre place got remotely near Eiretyres prices, some out by 130 euro!! robbery.
My last set of tyres (Michelin PS1's) cost €220 fitted per tyre (Kimmage Tyres).
I decided to get the highly recommended PS2's (225/45/17) this time - reputed to be far superior to PS1's, and one of the best available generally.
I ordered them from eiretyres.com and they arrived in a couple of days. Relatively speaking, I'm very happy with the €170/tyre cost.
I just rang Dave McCann tyres of Coolmine (recommended previously on this forum).
He told me that the vast majority of tyre outfits would only fit tyres supplied by themselves - he likened it to the scenario of showing up at a restaurant with a hunk of beef and asking them to cook it for you .
To my great suprise (and disbelief), he said he could have supplied and fitted the same PS2's for €183 (plus a pinch of salt!).
After some persuasion he agreed (as a favour) to fit and balance the tyres at €15 per tyre.
