Tyre prices

Dave,

I have replied to your PM.

I acknowledge the Camskill price for but also note they have no stock nor any delivery dates at that price. They do however have them available at 210 and 249 ie a range for a pair of 265 30 19 of 420 to 498 excl. delivery.

Event tyres, blackcircle and love tyres either don't list them or have them in stock.

I borrowed a tyre depth gauge from a neighbour to measure depths on all 4 tyres and they come up nearer full tread depth 6.5-7mm across them all.
I therefore have understated their tread depth more than over valuing my pricing of them.

So for clarity,

2 off 225 35 19 z rated and XL with 6.5-7mm tread 250 collected

2 off 265 30 19 z rated and XL with 6.5-7mm tread 350 collected

As Mega considers the set being too costly, then all 4 collected for 550.

In effect you are trying to sell a 30% worn set of tyres for only 98 off (a 16% discount)

I'd expect at best 30% of value to immediately disappear as they are used tyres and then you've lost 30% of the tread. So really about half off. 350.
But being fair and rounding up I'd put the fronts at 200 and the rears at 250 the pair.

Tha'ts a very fair price - and I've just PMed you to offer you that exact price for the fronts.

But otherwise I'll wait until my summers go back on in March and just buy 2 new fronts.

Dave

Had an interesting conversation with Camskill re run flat to normal tyre change over. Basically they wouldn't recommend any non run flat for my car as it would not be fit for purpose/ unsafe!!!. What a load of bollocks, talk about covering your arse, anyhow will take my custom elsewhere.

If they're cheapest, why lose out?

Just order the tyres you want online and don't ask their opinion. If they're not cheapest, then you've done yourself a favour

Never ever pick up the phone to Camskill.

The Guy who generally answers the phone knows more about Yorkshire tea,wine gums and the reproductive system of a table tennis ball, than he does about tyres.

Online shopping is becoming so popular as a result of people experiencing the same sort of fuckwittery elsewhere, that they encountered when speaking to the tard at Camskill.

Of course they would be more comfy and quieter, you have gone from a nearly worn tyre with only 3mm on them to a new tyres with 8mm on them.



I keep reading some pretty negative reviews of the Conti Sport Contact 5s on the Merc forums.
They loose their comfort factor prety quickly and they start to get noisy when down to 4-5mm.


A couple of guys have ditched them early and gone back to Pilot Sports.

I had Sport Conacts on my A6 avant, didn't like them so swapped for some Michelins, so much quieter and more comfy.
I then got my S211 E class and they had them, again hard and noisy, swapped them for Michelins.

Then when I got the S212 E350 that had them on again!!
Again I never felt the car rode as nicely as you would expect, but I couldn't justify swapping the tyres as they were all brand new.

What tyre pressures are recommended for Conti 5's 18" wheels? Do I keep the tyre pressure the same as the RFT's?

I would try at 34 front and 36 rear and adjust from there.

They need to feel softer than the run flat, you want some bite going into corners.

I've just had the mobile tyre guy leave my house.

He fitted x2 Michelin Pilot Super Sports 265/30/19XL fitment to the rear wheels on my D3.

580 All in.

Great service as I didn't have to take time off work or sit in a cold waiting area worrying about the YT lad damaging my alloys.
