    Hi All.

    I'm currently looking to buy 2 new tyres for the rig and was wondering.....

    Who do you go to purchase your tyres?

    16.5 " RIMS X 8" Load rating "D"

    For a "C" Class.....

    I go to a local company that always do me a great deal on the Land Rovers. I don't like / trust the 'chains' and haven't used one since 1988 when they dropped my Mk4 Escort off the ramp

    Steve, we have used Black Circle Tyres (online) for our cars might be worth checking to see if they do rv tyres. Always been good value and spot on delivery.

    I've always used the same fitter now for the past few years as his prices are hard to beat. Just a small independent....I never bother with the 'multi's' as they are not competitive in price.

    Just had two new (branded) tyres fitted on my car and surprised when he told me that brand make tyres are rarely bought now with cheaper brands selling much better. If you phone around you can also find fitters who specialise in part worn branded which come in at a very good price.
