Had a feeling it was time to get new tyres so popped in to Treads Tyres. I needed 3 tyres, both front and n/s/r. Quoted me £45 each all in for Falkens. Got home and did some price comparisons and I could get Continentals for £38 each all in at Kwik Fit. Pay online, book an appointment and thats it. However, I have a deep ingrained dislike for them and the extra money at Treads was worth it for the better experience.
I turned up at Treads next day at the agreed time and was on my way not long after. Its fair to say i didn’t realise quite how bad the original tyres were. I now have a car that feels like it has power steering even though it doesn’t! Will be interesting if my mpg improves. Going faster though does feel a bit easier too!
