Tyres In Spain (Ouch!)

I have just been quoted €960 at El Corte Ingles for 4 replacement Pirielli Scorpion Zero's R18's (ouch!!)

Does anyone on the site from Spain know where they are cheaper!

Thanks, however if I turned up a a tyre place with my own tyres will they still fit them?

Even if they agree wouldn't the fitting price and old tyre disposal be even more?

We don't have any problems over here but obviously can't speak about Spanish tyre fitters!!

Good point though.

AJS and myself send alot of tyres to European countries as its cheaper for some customers, particularly in Scandinavia.

Something to think about.

I have used Dave to transport wheelsfrom a vendor to AJS, & for other jobs.

Andy at AJS has supplied & fitted tyres for me.

They are both 100%, and come highly recommended.

It's worth researching.

All of these sites in Spain will deliver you a Pirelli Scorpion Zero from around 178 euros

www.neumaticos-online.es
www.firststop.es
www.neumaticos-pneus-online.es

..then you have to install it, balance it, etc.

If the Corte Ingles gives you the whole deal for 960 better do your math, I'm sure you can buy the tyres much cheaper, but the finished thing could end up costing you quite a bit more.

I got mine shipped over to Spain and then had an expat mobile company fit them for me for 10 euros a corner all included.

Well happy!

bigdave,

I will be needing some more come Winter. Any idea how much for 5 tyres to Alicante?

Cheers,

Try some of the smaller outlets they can do good prices, main dealers, etc are always expensive over there.

Got a puncture fixed the other day in algeciras for free, inc a new balance
