Have you checked tyres online @ eiretyres.com: tyre dealer for cheap passenger, summer, winter tyres or Cheap Tyres Discount Tyres Buy Tyres Online & Japanese Import Car Parts Spares Tuning Performance Servicing Accessories ::

Just make sure to allow for fitting costs & don't believe that all the places listed on the websites will actually fit the tyres, ring around for a few quotes as not all tyre fitters will fit tyres unless they sold them.

The prices have a £ symbol instead of a € whats the craic there, if they're charging £112 for a tyre you can get fitted in discount for €136, they are not cheap at all!

Click on the Irish Flag on the bottom of the page for € prices on Eiretyres page, add tyres to the shopping basket on camskill to see approx € prices, they are cheap for certain tyres & sizes but obviously neither site can be cheapest for everything

Some decent prices on that Discount Tyres site alright-the Goodyear F1s work out cheaper than Camskill. Still, I got 4 Toyo Proxes for the GT from Camskill around a year ago, and with delivery and mobile fitting, paid less than €400 which is pretty good for what a tyre I found to be better value than anything I've had on the GT so far.

Do Discount Tyres update their offers much Paddy?

ah right, i was wondering what the craic was there! I heard it's tough to get anyone to fit the tyres from eiretyres, must look at their prices tho, tyres4less.ie is another crowd who come out and fit, i've never used them but i know a few people who have and find them good and reasonable.

They do specials on certain tyre sizes every couple of weeks, worth keeping an eye on what they have, i got my ps3s for 600 fitted, balanced and tracked! Everyone else wanted 1000. While i was waiting they were getting serious orders on the phone, i presume they sell to the trade.

€20 a corner is a good price for mobile service, with dispsoal as well.

Meant I could get the tyres delivered to the office and not have to worry about hauling them around.
