Where is the best place to get a good deal on tyres for motorhome
Tyre leader seem good value. Depends on tyre size tho. 2 x Michelin Agilis camping 215/70 R15 came to just under £ 226 including delivery.
Try Etyres online , Black circles, or camskill. There are a few others - but a local place may be able to source at a good price as well. Etyres do a mobile service. Cheers
Edit - just seen the above post.... that is where I got mine from!!
Want 215/70r 15 cp looking for 4
Tyre leader - ordered and paid online and then fitted at a local depot 2 days later
I wanted 225/75 R16 Continental Vanco Fourseason 2 mud+snow tyres which I ordered through https://www.easywheels.co.uk/
The site is easy to use and you can search for the nearest fitting centre by inputting your postcode. Fitting was included in the price, which was £163.50 per tyre. They had to order the tyres from Germany but only took a couple of days to arrive. I struggled to find other suppliers in the UK for that size of tyre and when I was in Germany in the summer I was quoted 800 euros fitted for the same tyres which was comparable..
I used Etyres. They were brilliant. Came and fitted them at home and did an excellent job. They even matched another quote, so why not look around and then call a mobile company (had my car tyres fitted by mobile Kwik Fit) and see if they'll match the price and then sit back with a brew while you watch them do all the work
They used to have a franchise here in Suffolk but not any longer - they fitted 4 tyres to my old Lunar in the driveway. Good service and good price
You owe me a beer!!
Damn, just tried this site and the tyres were £100 cheaper, although fitting would probably be around £50. I hate doing that..
Know how you feel. Done it before...... I used them for the two higher load rated tyres I needed on the rear axle for the GVW uprate a few months ago
hello just had 5 215/75/r16 at gt tyres cardigan , continental vanco , at 606 pounds, thought that a good price, inc new valves and balancing
i just had 6x 215 75x16 116 /114 tyres fitted at my local hi q tyres for 450 quid .
yes they are commercial not camping or what ever . but they will suit me fine .
nice chinese quality gt maxmilers .
Never expected to see "Chinese" and "quality" in a sentence about vehicle tyres..........
Saving this thread for the (hopefully distant) future!
i have been using chinese tyres on my m,bikes for years . find them excellant . have had slvakia ones on the truck found them good as well . will see how these go . but so far a nice smooth ride .
i need the extra high load range to keep it as standard for the plating . but i dont bother with plating or testing really as its exempt . but have to keep within the rules .
if i could have dropped the load range it would have been much cheaper about 60 quid a tyre then .
remember folk do drive mercedes and bmw vehicles are they quality ?
also made in china .
Fair enough, but the motorcyclists I know would not touch them (I always used Michelin tyres on all my bikes) but each to their own. Our view is that the tyres are the only contact patch between the rider/driver and a big accident so no compromises.
its no compromise . i found chen shin had better grip than dunlops my 1500cc drifter had on . my little dax as just had new chinese tyres fitted as replacements for the original chinese tyres after 8000mls .
buy a new bmw m,bike it might come with chinese tyres the bike would have been made in china .
even in the 70,s i always liked the jap tyres i had on m,bikes . used to buy the ones others had took off from new i got them cheap as well.
at one time i worked for michelin so i am conversant on tyres .
chinese products are great you just have to buy the right ones .
if these play up dont worry i,ll let you know .
Oponeo were the cheapest I could find, just bought 4 conti vanco winter2 £101 each.
how about £310 for 4 already on brand new ducato rims?
autotrail take them off to fit alloys and sell the steel rims and tyres on ebay
Just had a quote from Event Tyres, 4xMichelin Agilis Camping 225x75x16 £635 fitted
