    Tyres by post? Where do you get yours?

    Alright then, maybe not by post, perhaps by parcel, but do you order your tyres over that new fangled interweb thingamybob, or by other means?

    Just wondering where you get yours, if you do, other than nipping to Watlings or wherever on your mighty steed.

    Oponeo or Tyreleader, whoever has the best price and availability. Needed a rear Pirelli Scorpion Trail II last week and ordered from Tyreleader on Monday morning and it was with me by Thursday, in time for fitting to the loose wheel I'd removed the night before. Think it was £109 for the tyre and a tenner for fitting locally.

    No mail order service is much use when you need the tyres yesterday but I’ve been happy with tyreleader.

    Think you will find that most of the online tyre sellers are all the same company in Germany, just different web names............

    My friendly tyre fitter disposes of them FOC but between my wife and I we do put a lot of business their way and they pay by weight rather than volume so others subsidise it for us
