most paid for a tyre
I know, another tyre thread, but I just wanted to know what is the highest price anyone has had to pay for a new Tyre.
The reason I ask? I just got robbed to the tune of £286.25 for a single pirelli by kwickfit. Got a puncture 150 miles from home with a car full of three adults, a baby and three weeks worth of luggage and didn't want to risk the spacesaver spare under those conditions. So, no choice but to accept getting royally ripped off.
I actually thought the puncture was repairable, a clean nail hole and no sidewall damage, but once they get a sniff of their commission you have no chance. The bloke even had the cheek to dis my acelleras, you get what you pay for etc, like it was the tryes fault I drove over a nail!
Anyway, home safe now but feeling a bit hard done by.
So, has anyone been forced to pay more ? And if so, under what circumstances?
