Ok so I've just been quoted £390 ish at my local dealer for a set of RP4 GTs. A touch more than I was expecting. Anyone know of cheaper suppliers in the UK? Ta.

Check openeo.co.uk too. They were the cheapest when I looked.

Now just £213.44 for the pair... I may have to order soon.


With over 10k on my original 2012 tyres, they're probably due a change. That said, there's plenty of tread in them still.

I am keeping a close eye on my tyres now they're close to 10k, but they're still performing well and have loads of even tread left.


The price for a pair of 4GTs is down to £208 now, but I can't justify that until I NEED them.

So I paid £305 for a set of RP4 GTs fitted and balanced, and for the MOT.
