I need 3 x 155/R/12 tyres for my Betty the Hijet......

Post by tara100 on Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:20 pm

Hi

I haven't posted on here for yonks, and hope you and your Hijets are all well and happy Smile

Right, well I definitely need a front tyre as it's very low on tread, and the two others I think need changing (they look like new but have cracks to the sidewalls Crying or Very sad )

I have been to all my local tyre outlets, and the best quote so far is £49.68 fitted per tyre.

I'm looking to spend less, and wondered if any fellow Hijet owners knew of any deals anywhere?

Thanks
Tara

Hi Rich, how are ya doin? Smile

Could you take a look at these for me please?

Are they the right type? Do you reckon they are ok?
I'm scared to buy in case they turn up, and are the size of mini wheels, or are just pants in general..... Laughing


Thanks

I would email them as it reads like they are car tires and Hijets use commercial tires and if I remember rightly you use yours for work so they need to be right as the incorrect rated tires can be a cause for them (insurance) not to pay if you do have a smash.

I've used camskill loads of times over the years, always had great service and they have saved me a fortune over the years.

4 of those maxxis at £130 to your door is a bargain, just got to find a garage to fit them for the right cash. I'd expect to pay £25 to £30 for 4 tyres fitted.

Maybe take these quotes to some local garages and get them to price match.
