    confused Tyre price

    have just come back from a overseas visit shall we say, and Mr MOD has given me some hard earned cash from my aggressive camping expedition. Went and bought a set of brand new 19" snowflakes and pick them up next Wednesday. Went a got a quote from a tyre place I have used before and he has quoted me the following:

    4 x Toyo Proxes T1-R 235/ 35/ 19 fitted for £600

    he has said they should cost £720 but will do the all for £600

    Is this any good? or is he kidding me and having a laugh, thoughts below if I should bite his hand off

    If your not doing too many miles why not get Kumho KU31's the best Budget/Intermetiates you'll find and for 235 35 19 you'll pay £320 for 4 on ebay. BIG SAVING

    Problem is, am going back to finish my tour, and the wife has the car. She does 35 miles a day, seven days a week, so would like it to be right. Does this add any weight to the original post?

    Is she a racing driver? Most women couldnt tell the difference between tyres you know that hahaha
    All tyres have to be of a certain standard to go on UK cars anyways. You wont ever find me driving the Veccy on £700 tyres when my £290 are just fine......

    My GTR however goes on the finest Toyo R888 rubber and gets driven more briskly lets say

    Fitted £600 is just about as cheap as you'll get them anywhere.

    Avon's (nearly as good) would cost around £460 for 4 and then £50 for the fitting so it's your shout.

    Just got two Kuhmos yesterday for £180 fitted. I'm willing to give them a try as the prices I was being quoted for Toyos was silly. I have done about 13,000 miles since I got my Signum in March so I'm a high miler as well. Certainly first impressions are good - don't feel or sound as much like ultra low profiles like the Toyos and no tramlining - steering feels much better.
