Cheap tyres inc free delivery

Just ordered a pair of Michelin pilot power 3's online and found what seems to be a great price. £193.98 inc delivery.


http://www.tyreleader.co.uk/motorbike-tyres/


Anyone used this company before? I had a scout around google and found a couple of forum threads with people saying thay had used them with no problems but it's always nicer to hear good reports first hand if possible.



Anyhow, thought this might be helpful for some people if indeed it is a good deal? I'll report back on my experiece.



They're a german company by the looks of it.

Hey man, not used them personally but a few of my friends and many members (on a few car forums I'm on) recommend them.

How much cheaper were they in comparison to other sites?

Hi Raj, average saving seems to be around £40. The cheapest online price Google was throwing up was around the £235 mark. So at £194 these seem like a cracking deal.



I haven't rang around local places but last time I needed new hoops I did this and mostly they couldn't get near the best online prices.

I can't see a better price than that either

You'll have to come back on with feedback on the tyres

Let me know if you want to swap that yoshi out for an Arrow titanium ;)

Wife just rang me at work to say that the tyres have arrived. Ordered Saturday morning so good turnaround time from Germany if you don't include Sunday.
I'll get a look at them and post up more info later, just wanted to reassure anyone thinking of using this company that it would appear it's not a scam :)

Those tyres listed with an older DOT code are clearly identified and initially the RRP price reflects this. Some older tyres are MUCH cheaper than the newer identical tyre, giving you a choice to save money by buying an older tyre.

You will notice there are identical brand/model/size tyres listed several times. Some with DOT codes, some without. The ones without are brand new I think?

Reason I assume this is that I selected a listed tyre with no DOT code in the description and the tyres I received were new...

Example. See how the top S20 has no DOT code. It's a brand new tyre I reckon as it should be £155.56

The tyre below it seems identical and is listed as DOT 2011. It is priced at over £40 less (£rrp) than the newer tyre. £155.56 vs £113.09. My guess is that the older tyre was part of an early batch judging from the S20 release date of Jan 2012 (Europe). http://www.bridgestone.co.uk/bfe/v/i...00cc65a10aRCRD



The crazy thing is, Tyreleader seem to be doing smoking deals on the new tyres meaning they work out cheaper after discount than the old tyres. Not sure how they plan to shift the older stock like that? Still, I'm not complaining :)

Could be worse Raj. I thought I'd go out to the garage and have a look at how old my tires were, and found out theyre 12 years old. FML

Quick Question Dan,
I purchased some Pilot Road 4s for my sisters new hornet yesterday night from these guys, thanks to your recommendation.

How long was it before they updated with tracking etc. and when do you think I will get them by? Does Friday look possible?

Cheers

Hey Ahmed. Mine took four days from ordering online to arriving at my door. If I remember correctly there wasn't any communication from tyreleader after the initial confirmation email so I wouldn't worry if you've heard nothing yet. If they have the tyre in stock I'd say you ought to have them this week :)

Post up your experience, I'd be interested to hear how you got on.

Had conformation email for definate which had all the relevant info had I needed to chase the order up with the company. Tracking? I honestly can't remeber now but my gut says I don't think I had it.

Yeah mine was delivered on the 3rd working day so you should more than likely get them before the weekend.

Got the tyres today. Very impressed with the turnaround! Ordered Midnight Monday, Delivered Thursday midday

Date stamps are spot on too Mar 14 and Oct 13 for a set of the new Pilot Road 4s.

Happy Days! Cheers Dan for the recommendation!

Used tyre leader again this week to pick up some new rubber for my winter hack 125cc commuter.

Again, very impressed. Prices were the cheapest I could find online and they arrived within four days. So far I'm 100% happy with tyre leader and will continue to use them in the future.

Tyre leader rock, we always use them, cheapest for tyres every time I look.

You could get a set of tyres, front stand & get them fitted for less than you'd pay in a shop for tyres only. I just picked up a front stand for less than £20 on eBay
