    Firstly never go to kwik fit!

    Then look on www.camskill.co.uk www.mytyres.co.uk and www.blackcircles.com

    Then try your local intendant garages.

    Then stop shouting

    You wanted 19's so you are now going to pay the price for keeping them in the correct size rubber.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Rule of thumb you get what you pay for. However, some budget brands are very good, Falken and Khumo are both good imo but I would also steer clear of fullrun, sunny and wanli if you drive in the slightest bit "sporty" although some like them I suspect they drive like my granny

    Have a look at Runway Enduros, i'd never heard of them until recently, i've had a set on my 17s and now have a set on my 18's. Great tyres for the money

    Surprisingly, Kwik Fit can be quite good on prices IF you pay online - the prices are often quite a lot cheaper than the branches are allowed to offer. You buy online, select a fitting branch and time, then go in there and have the work done.

    Phone Neo Brothers and get a quote for Neuton NT5000's they are a very good tyre indeed and would probably be half that figure.

    They are great in the wet quiet and last very well indeed

    i agree. i'm refurbing my snowies soon, and although i've got new tyres on them (fullruns), im going to get a set of these just bcoz they look a lot nicer. my fullruns are fine, i don't drive like a dick, i just want the neutons coz they sound really good.

    PaZ!
