etyres were called on to provide the prices for Auto Express magazines eagerly-awaited annual tyres test.
The team at the leading weekly car mag put 12 of Britain’s top-selling tyres through their paces for this week’s issue.
And when it came to the price section, they turned to us because we are known in the industry for offering the best prices.
This is what Auto Express had to say:
“Getting the best price for a tyre used to be a real lottery. But online retailers have made buying easier – and much better value, too.
“The figures are there for all to see, and generally available nationwide. Our prices are quoted by leading Internet firm etyres, for what it currently sells or what it would charge if asked to supply. All figures are correct at the time of writing, and include valve, disposal, balancing and mobile fitting.”
The prices ranged from £89 for the Continental, Michelin and Vredestein down to £54 for the Wanli.
But the magazine reported: “You get what you pay for and that is certainly true with the Wanli tyres. They’re over £10 cheaper than the nearest rivals – buy a full set, and you’d save a massive £140 over four of the most expensive tyres on test.”
However, the Chinese tyres were the worst over-all performers by miles in virtually all the other tests.
