    I don't think I would wan't to pay another £30.00 just to get a £10.00 voucher back. The comparable tyres I had fitted last week at £114.00 are £144.00 at Camskill !! :(

    If they are not Uniroyal then no cashback, mute point

    225/40 R18 £60
    255/35 R18 £88

    £3.50 per tyre delivery

    Can't find them cheaper, got lucky on the pair I bought for the front last week from E-Bay price wise

    You can sometimes get lucky, I do a lot of researching before I buy any car parts and have always gone cheaper for resale purposes, but recently I have found some really good bargains out there and quality too in good stead.
    Some research I did on my AP brake calipers £440 for the repair kit I found Land Rover repair kit for £24 fit my calipers complete with pistons. Mind you it can take up a lot of valuable work time scouring the internet :(

    What did you get ?. I have just put a pair of P Zero's on the rear of mine and they had done 25,000. The fronts when I changed them just over a year ago had done 20,000. Obviously I am not a boy racer, a bit past all of that. Mind you I have had my moments in my younger days. :rolleyes:

    With the added power, and if you really put your foot down how long would they last do you think, I know it's a hypothetical question. My tyres were nearly new when I picked up the car and the rears are just below 5mm now, and I've covered about 2500k miles.

    That is what I get with added power and I do drive it, more than happy with that mileage as they are a softer compound and very grippy
