Cheap tyres in the Limerick area

Hi folks.
Need to replace the two front tyres on my 159, can anyone recommend a good cheap reliable place to buy in the Limerick area?

Thanks
Pete

I don't know limerick, but have been getting tyres for our cars from the following UK site for the last few years:

Cheap Tyres Discount Tyres Buy Tyres Online & Japanese Import Car Parts Spares Tuning Performance Servicing Accessories

Just before you buy check online locally eg tyres online @ eiretyres.com: tyre dealer for cheap passenger, summer, winter tyres etc...

Hope that helps...

It seems like tyres have gone up a good bit in the last year,
The exact same set of 4 tyres I bought of Eiretyres just over a year ago have gone up by €115
The quote I got from Camskill has increased by at least €60 if not more IIRC.


Hope you find a good deal Pete,

PS if you do buy your tyres online make sure you have someone who will fit them as not all tyre centres will fit tyres purchased elsewhere.

True... I've seen my 'regular' brand go up 13% on camskill.co.uk since last year... Oil prices?

Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists Dublin Wicklow Ireland do new and partly worn tyres as well if you fancy somewhere nearer they'll also fit tyres you buy elsewhere

Sorry to disagree, but they fitted my tyres the wrong way, (the inside of the tyre was outside), and they were more expensive than Nissan Windsor (Bray) to put on the tyres I got from Eiretyres.

Looking at the big picture and how it affects me... I have a tyre guy I always use for new tyres in Walkinstown (although I have bought the odd one at Phoenix Tyres too-gentlemen to deal with). I bought part worn winter tyres and am happy with the deal I got etc.
Was just being nosy really and 'gathering info.'

Highly likely that I will get a set of 4 part worns for my supersports once it warms up a little
(over 7C)...

I said you can get them from them, I never said they'd fit them the right way!!
I never knew Windor would fit them as well, good to know.

Guy in youghal charged €15 to put two on and balance.

Glanworth Tyres. They have no set price. Another time it cost 20, another 15. Each time 1 pair changed.

Bridgestone Potenza 050As gone well up in price. Just bought two.
