If that's for a pair it's not bad.

That is a good price for the Conti's. I usually pay about 170 for each.

a local Qwikfit (Barhill, Cambridgeshire) quoted 390 for a pair of Contis, and wanted an additional 13.50 to swap old rears to the front and balance them.
so that seems quite a decent price.

I had excellent service from Tyres on the Drive also; they were the cheapest for two Conti 215/55 x 18 V99 EL and the fitter was really professional. Recommended

Think yourself lucky you have not got the Tekna with 19 inch wheels, they are well over 200 each, and apart from buying on the web, try finding a tyre dealer that actually stocks this size.

The spreadsheet is great and can be added to / kept upto date with any special deals. Can the mods put the spreadsheet as a perm link so we dont lose it. Is there a way to make it easy to find in the future

Good idea the spread sheet, but we need to add 19 and 17 inch wheels as well, to cover all the models. I notice the rating is "V" my Conti's are "W". You would need to inform your insurers for putting g on a less rated tyre that does not meet original manufacturers specification.
I know "V" rated is within the scope, but insurers are getting more and more picky at avoiding paying out, especially if they can find something that is non standard.

I have just had a set of Nankang's fitted, exactly the same spec as Conti's. They feel very good for 365 all in. Of course they don't have the snob value of the 635 Conti's, but I am happy.

Where did you get nankangs from
Just read a review and they don't have rim protection my contis have prevented damage to alloys on many occasions

Been quoted 160.78 per tyre for Michelin Primacy 3 from my local Costco. Also got an offer of 30 instore voucher for buying two and 70 voucher for buying four until 1st February.

Same deal on Bridgestone D Sport at 137.98 each.

These are 215/55 R18 99V for my 2010 Tekna and are fully fitted.

Are either of these good deals or is there anything better at the moment.

I personally prefer the Continental Contact 2 which were originally fitted from the factory. About 168 fully fitted at Kwik Fit online. It used to be only Continental that made tyres in this size and load index but I see there is quite choice now from various makers - Continental, Bridgestone, Michelin, Pirelli etc.
