    Tyres...

    Yes still trying to sell my car, but to be honest the rears are on the way out and I need to swap em...

    Can anyone recomend anywhere in South West London for new tyres for my Boxster S..

    Also what are the dimensions of the wheels??? Obviously I will know this when I get home but want to get some quotes whilst I'm at work

    Re: Tyres...

    Don't live in your neck of the woods, so can't help you on local dealers, unless you fancy a run down the M3 to Micheldever Tyres www.micheldever.co.uk here's the wheel & tyre info (from the 3.4 handbook) but I'm sure the 3.2 is the same.

    Re: Tyres...

    Bracknell Tyres probably a similar hike for you and part of Micheldever - always very good prices and service.

    Dare i say it but Kwit-Fit always have 15% off for 2 tyres - the brand changes every month, so you may or may not be lucky. I bet Bracknell will be cheaper anyway.

    www.etyres.co.uk come and fit on site/home

    www.blackcircles.com are either supply only or fitted.

    Re: Tyres...

    I compared costco to e tyres and they came up roughly the same.

    Re: Tyres...

    FYI... Finally got around to ordering some new boots. Thought it was a wise move with winter coming!

    Anyway, got full set of Pirelli 19" for Pounds720 at Kwik fit.. They have a deal on at the moe to get 20% of perelli tyres.

    Not a bad price me thinks

    Re: Tyres...

    Sounds good. Which P specifically?
    Let us know how they perform.

    Re: Tyres...

    Ok... I was too quick.. Just had a call, they can't get the Pirelli's from anywhere! Buggar, they were kind enough to do the Conti's at the same price though.

    No bad thing, have the Conti's already and Ive been very very impressed with how long they lasted... 2 trackdays, 1 day at a dragstrip and 12,000 miles!!!! Ha ha ha

    Re: Tyres...

    No track days, but I drive hard pretty much everywhere (well, as hard as you can on public roads without being an [beep]!) However I do a fair amount of motorway/commute miles in that too.

    Got 30kmiles+ out of my fronts, and then they were around 3mm. Had the front wheels refurbed due to blistering and got the tyres changed at the same time, so I thought I'd get some more grip and tread depth at the same time.

    Rears I get approx 15k out of. I say approx, because I've never had to replace them due to wear. Damn punctures. They may go to 20k.

    This is with PS2s. Try a dealer demo car. Seriously, I've found the contis less grippy. Mind you, if you're selling, you probably don't mind!

    Re: Tyres...

    I changed my PS2 rears at 16500 miles - they probably had about 2mm on them - considering i do very little motorway mileage and a lot of B roads i was well chuffed Fronts are still at 3-3.5mm after 20k miles.

    I don't think Pirelli are approved for the 987 (not yet anyway) - Pounds720 for Contis is a reasonable price tho.
