    Default Cheap Tyres

    Hi,

    My Astra needs two new tyres for the front, ones worn about an inch wide from the outside, and the other has a bulge due to a knock on a curb, so gonna get the tyres swapped and the track set up.

    Can anyone recommend a tyre place online - I'm sure I've heard it mentioned before? I'm looking for some cheap tyres that will still give decent performance, but they dont have to last - the car does about 3-4k a year.

    Ian, it may be worth a run up to Walkers Tyres at Tudhoe Ind Est, near Spennymoor.

    They are the Uk importer of used Tyres and have loads of High quality tyres at less than remould price.

    I have used them for track tyres in the past and thet are spot on.

    For a car like yours, only 3-4K miles these will be perfect and last you a good couple of years

    cheers guys - gonna phone a local garage i trust 2morrow and if they cant get the price down I'll tell them about these places. Camskill have some Falken 512 in for £54 a tyre, I've had them b4, wet performance isnt great, but dry they are as good as anything else, but wear quick. At 3-4k a year i would still get 2-3 years out of them tho!
