What @glenshane says @crutches

Simply asking would be useful too. Most dealers would let you know.


#1525

You’d save a grand or two if you went to one of the ex fleet auctions in England.


#1526

235 quid for a tyre?


#1527

Take that to the degenerate betting thread. No point in saving money to gamble at an auction. Ideally you could spend a week scouring garages for what he wants. He’d surely fire you a grand for your help.


#1528

Saucy.


#1529

For what I presume is mainly city/motorway driving. Seems dear alright


#1530

It’s safe to say that when it comes to riding an innocent punter Tinnions pals at TyreMaster are no flat tyres.
Obfuckingscene for a what I’d imagine was a fairly standard tyre.


#1531

I’d say the majority of used cars here are coming from ex.fleet auctions. Apart from the main manufacturer/dealers


#1532

They’re all up around the 100k Mark mileage wise tho,that’s the only problem


#1533

The ex fleet cars are. The ex lease cars tend to be around 12 per year.
Motability auctions are another option. They usually have very low mileage, they’re 3 years old and go straight to auction with a full service history etc

Research tells me the tyre could be had for around €180 if purchased online from any number of places.

It cost an extra €125 in mark-up and fitting fees to have someone come to my house & fit it allowing me to get on with keeping the recovery going rather than fitting the limp home tyre, driving somewhere to have the tyre fitted and wasting a morning waiting.

Work smarter not harder, guys.


#1535

How much did he charge you for the air?


#1536

Could you not have just fixed the puncture?


#1537

Put my family at risk to save a few quid? No thanks.


#1538

Anyone want to buy a Volvo s80, guys?


#1539

“One careful owner, even washed the diesel that went through it”


#1540

Is there an issue with mending punctures?


#1541

Could be something as simple as a dodgy valve that needs replacing


#1542

There can be. Depends on how much damage there is to the tyre. I don’t believe in taking risks with these things.


#1543

No problem with all of that but youd have boight a perfectly good tyre for far less than 180
