Just been ringing round to see if i can better my mates £60 per tyre for a "no make" and National tyres in Cannock will do a price match at £60 for a Barum Vanis, which i'm told are made by Continental, anyone got any experience of these?
Is that fitted ? Barum's are good tyres I will ring my tyre supplier and see what price I can get for you!
i just brought 2 of them 75 each from national robbibg barstewards
ooooooooooooohhhhhh think i best jump in then lol.
I can get you some no name's for £40 each or hankook's for £54 each and I will look after you on fitting
Yea they are van rated 8ply, you could bring them with you when you come to techenders and drop them at mine and I will pop over with them or we can do it the same time as your mot depending when you want it doing? It won't take long to do!
deffo want to do before mot lol, i can't wait i want them doing like now....... any info on the no makes? the hanook at £54 is only a total save of £24 over the ones i can get here (no offence as it's a great deal) but by the time i've fannied about i'll spend that much fuel and time..... but at £160 for 4 over £240 it depends on how pikey the pikey ones are i guess.
^which is why i'm "hoping" 195/70/15 equals 185/80?/14 as near as dammit.
I believe stock tyres are 185/75/14.
At least I hope so and that's what I was told when I bought 195/65/15 to get as close to the same circumference as possible (difference of 1mm)?
nope stock are 185/14 which usually means 80 profile if not stated, i was told that it could be 85 profile but after the research i've done these are a lot rarer and most vans i have looked at have 80's on so working on mine being 185/80/14 the near as dammit equal is 195 / 70 / 15 which are mm's different....so your's could possibly be wrong? eitherway i'm fairly happy with what i've decided and i doubt the mm's different will lunch the tranny,that said my spare is a low profile nowhere near the right size so if i punctured a rear i would have to put it on the front and put the front on the rear so the trans wasn't spinning odd sizes.
I remember why I went 65. 4 tyres for £200 instead of £400 kind of swayed it
185/80/14 = 204.71cm and 195/70/15 = 205.46cm is as close as makes no odds i reckon?
the only thing with bigger tyres like on noo noo, being lowered she grabs when hitting pot hole etc, not a nice feeling.
plus i cant get it in the garage lol being a centimetre bigger..
i don't do low so i'm sure i'll get the mick taken with high front and alloys, but as you all know by now i'm not fussed what anyone says about 'the cabin'
