Winter Tyres, Have I missed the boat?

Just looking at the price of 17" winter tyres I am sure that they were cheaper than summer tyres a couple of months ago but looking at mytyres today they seam about 50 a tyre more than a similar premium branded summer tyre ? or is it me....

Prices have risen as stocks have reduced. They can now virtually charge what they like.

Mytyres have hiked their prices big time. Check out kwikfits website as they have some great deals on at the moment.

They claim it's because the manufacturers are increasing their prices, so they have to follow. Most likely its a bit of both and with demand booming, they see their opportunity to make some extra money. They must be rubbing their hands with the massive amount of snow this early. No risk of ending up with loads of stock....

Looks like kwik fit have run out of 205 winter tyres. Thursday was showing a result in search options and now they're not.
