    i had to check my brakes today after over heating them a few day ago, brakes all ok but noticed 1 tyre has a cut at the bottom of the tread about 8" long, so I need a new tyre, any advice for the best place to get new one. Michelin Agilis camping 215/75x16, I will get 2 and put the undamaged tyre on the spare which is still the original maybe,2001 Hymer.

    Check out the nearest Norauto . Their prices are usually reasonable

    Thanks but last time in France we had a puncture and took it, off van, to Norauto and then couldn't repair it , so not sure if they could do it.

    I have tried
    I have tried that type of place but stumbled at not having a drench address, I may try a friends address but then payment card would be a different address, so may not work.
    Cheers

    They may not do a repair depending if it is s repair allowed but they can provide new as that is where we got our van tyres. We have had them repaired at Roady .

    Well I've gone with "POPGOM fr" to be fitted at Euromaster on Friday.
    I had to use a friends French address and payed with my Revolut card. 336,10€ fitted so at my Revolut exchange rate that's £129.26 each.
    Thanks for all input, I will report back later.

    Had the tyres fitted today, all went well, swapped the tyre on the spare for the good one and didn't charge for the extra work.
    To do the Internet order I had to use a friends French address, this maybe something any funster living in France could offer.
