Tyre Prices - Bob H
I needed 4 new tyres for Mk4 Golf Gti 1.8t. The tyres are Pirelli P6000 205/55- R-16-91W. As I work in London during week I didn?t have time to travel too far to obtain the best deal. So, with one exception, I confined my enquiries to the London area. These are the quotes I obtained (all in price including VAT, balancing, valve, old tyre disposal etc)

Kwik Fit - £512.96
National Tyres £468.12
Several Small firms £410 to £430
Budget Motorists Centre £300.00 ? These I bought.
Micheldever Tyres(Hants) £248.84

I am staggered that there is such a huge discrepancy in price between identical products.
Re: Tyre Prices - Honest John
Micheldever buys its tyres on World markets, but will buy them from the UK distributor if that happens to be cheaper that week.

MD tyres also supply to the national chains.
Re: Tyre Prices - Martin Wall
btw - can you get Michelder to courier the tyres to you and pay a garage to fit them?

I had Michedever courier a pair of 225/45 R17 P6000's to my home for just £200 all in. Then a local garage (not one of the tyre chains, they wouldn't do it) fitted and balanced them for £20!

All in I saved about £150 against my local Kwik rip off price!

I've since ordered an extra one for the inevitable unrepairable burst I due to get any day for gloating about how much I saved!

Ford are bleeding money all over the world but own Kwik Fit so high tyre prices there may help the Ford balance sheet a very little bit, but not a lot!
Re: Tyre Prices - Leslie
Surely the point is the huge profit that Kwik Fit and others make whilst marketing themselves as 'cut price' outlets.
