Where's the cheapest source of new tyres?

The Disco needs a couple of tyres - the rears have been looking a bit
sad for a while (cracked rubber on the side walls suggests they've been
on for some time) but I noticed this morning that one of them decided
to take a complete break from supporting the back o/s during Xmas day.
It's pointless having it repaired, so I'll take the plunge and replace
them both.

They are 235/70 R16 and, looking at the web, prices vary wildly (plus
some charge for valves, balancing and disposal of your old tyres,
whereas others quote inclusive of this). Can anyone recommend a
source? I'm in west Essex.

Regards,

- Tom.

Tom,

are you a member of the Discovery Owners Club?

if you are (and its really really worth it!) then go to www.e-tyres.com and
you get an extra 5% discount!!!!

I got a set of goodyear AT's fitted at home (the nice man comes out with his
van!) and all done for less than 80 a corner - all in!

Cant recommend this lot enough, and even if you aren't a DOC member, the
prices are very reasonable (the price you see is the price you pay fitted,
balanced, valved, wherever you want it to happen)

And, if you order before about 3pm they can generally do next day.

HTH

Si

(and I have nothing to do with them whatsoever other than being really,
really impressed with them)

the "wherever" aspect is nice. Last disco tyres I bought were Avon Ranger
AT which cost about 300 quid a set of 4 fitted balanced etc. but I had to go
to the tyre place.

seemed good tyres. can't comment on durability, 'cos I sold it soon
afterwards. However, I reckon the TDi will get some if we keep it.

FWIW, I don't much like fitting tyres in pairs on the constant 4x4 ones,
unless you've bought one with 2 near-new and 2 shagged. Generally try to
arrange it that it gets a set of 4 new ones at the same time.
