    As some of you will know we had a blow out on the A1 just 6 miles from the peterborough show last weekend, well i got a price from the guys on a tyre stand that said they could fit one for £107:Rofl1: I've asked a friend of mine (tyre shop worker for 20 years) and he has quoted me £93:Eeek: is this the going rate for a Pirelli 205/70 R15???

    I paid £107 for a pirelli for my Jag and that is a much bigger wheel from the same friend:Confused:.

    are they 205/70R15 CP or C rated tyres as CP are quite expensive compared to C rated. I know I am buying 2 x CP in a few weeks time

    We find these good, but still more than your friend quoted (does include all charges though) but we do not use Pirelli any more as they treated us badly over a lorry tyre. Jane :Smile:
