tyre hunting at the moment for my gtv v6. am looking for a decent tyre at a good price, especially after shelling out for tax today and the £1k garage bill for the gearbox.

was thinking falken fk452 which actually fall below the £50 mark delivered.

any other good prices and any discount codes for the blackcircles site.

cheers

I always find local tyre sellers the cheapest (normally the same price as online, but tyre fitted and disposed as well)..generally the big companies like ATS e.t.c can't get near.

If you really want a discount for blackcircles..

5% off

The black circles price of £49 doesn't include fitting, and you also have to pay £10 delivery. You can pay for a fitted price of £63 per tyre and then you don't have to pay the postage.

I think that is right anyway, at least it was last night for my area.

I have been looking at getting some more for my coupe which uses the same size. :thumbs:

Don't be shy...call some more ;)

e.g. in Bristol - Cabot Tyres is often the cheapest
in Reading/Bracknell - Bracknell Tyre and Battery is often the cheapest (lots of other locals quoting considerably more), but there are some companies with true stand out value.

I am pretty sure that the 205/55 16's will foul the inner arches when the steering is turned. Also the speedo will be out.

205/55 16 is one of the most common sizes, thats why they are cheaper. 205/50 16's are not that common.
