    Well folks

    Was sitting waiting on a lad the other day when I decided to do some tyre kicking and low and behold my fronts arent far off my hair issue and becoming bald...

    Just been offered two Interstate Tyres 215 50 17 for 85 quid a go fitted.

    Anybody have any experience of this crowd ? I've never heard of them and their online reviews read well but that could be down to some good tagging on Google.

    Lad shifting them tells me they are a tad below Dunlop. Basically missing the label so to speak.

    A quick google brought up one review for a set of tyres belonging to them
    Lowest fuel consumption but the worst wet and poor dry performance

    On the same page for the Dunlop set
    very balanced tyre, good all round

    Teflon ditchfinders are a false economy.

    I put 4 of this brand on a hi ace a few years back price was so good I even got the spare replaced.
    drove 5 miles and it started raining
    the van was all over the place back wheels spinned trying to move along with the traffic and front slid with slightest touch of brake.
    Drove back and got them to put my old tires back on and refund the money.

    maybe they have improved but I never never know as I won't trust them again.

    He must have spotted your username :D

    Seriously.
    You could get a set of Hankooks for a little more than that.

    Touche ! :P

    Generally, I am appaulled by this market.

    me - "Looking for tyres"

    Seller - "Yeah €50 each"

    me - "What brand are they?"

    Seller - "I dunno.... Does it matter?"

    me - "Thank you :)"

    I must admit, I used to be of the mind set that any old peice of rubber will do..... I've changed that mindset since. It just seems tha Joe Soap wants the lowest price possible irrespective of the consequences
