I would shop around regards price.

Even with 25% off you may find that other suppliers are still cheaper.

The P-Zero's came top in an Auto Express tyre test last year BTW.

Hi, seriously... dont buy from kwik fit.. the whole 25% off is a scam.

The prices are higher to begin with.

heres an example from personal experience.

Ford Dealer charged me £160 for a 18" Sport Contact 3 Extra Load Tyre. Only use those because the car was fitted with them, and ive found them to be quite good.. was voted by which magazine as a best buy and recomended.

Apparently they also use the same tyres on some Mercs

Kwik fit charged me £166 for the same tyre... and told me "they was on special offer"
then when I looked at my reciept after.. before the discount/special offer they was selling the tyre at £185

£25 more than the ford dealer! without the special offer... and even with the special offer they was £6 more expensive.

I have since found the same tyres online for £110.. so in future im going to buy online and get my local tyre fitter to fit.

http://www.elitedirect.com/Tyres/tyres.php

that place is quite good on prices, they sell tyres delivered online.. and are cheaper than most places because they buy in bulk and are effectively a tyre wholesaler.
