    If you can get them fitted go for Ebay. Nobody can get near the prices on there.
    I got a set of 4 diamondback 225/45/17 tyres delivered to my door for £150.
    I cant fault the tyres to be honest and they feel no different to my Falkens i had before.
    I dont drive my car like i stole it though so if you intend on driving like a nutter you may want a better brand but for every day normal use i cant fault them.
    I dont drive like an old women by the way.

    I've yet to have a competitive quote from blackcircles. They've been consistantly higher priced than anyone else whenever I've shopped round for tyres.

    DO NOT use companies like Camskill or Blackcircles, they have to make money, so they add their bit on top of what you'll pay direct at a tyre depot!

    I got 4 new tyres fitted to my ex's car a couple of years ago, going through Blackcircles & having them fitted at a local tyre depot. Wasn't very impressed when the guy fitting them told me he could have done them alot cheaper had i not gone through Blackcircles.

    My advice, for what it's worth, do a bit of ringing round your local tyre depots & play them all off against each other, you'll be surprised how much cheaper you'll be able to get them.

    Nowt wrong with camskill imo. They do not fit tyres nor do they arrange tyre fitting. They are tyre suppliers only, and if you know of someone willing to fit them for you then they can work out a fair bit cheaper

    Likewise. Although they no longer stock the Rainsport2's I was after a little while ago. Ended up getting them and having them fitted at Merityre (Abingdon) for what I would have normally paid for them mail order and then having to source someone like ATS to fit them.
