Tyres

Hi guys im looking for Michelin pilots sport 4 S tyres for my rears 345/30 ZR 20, can anyone recommend a good supplier please at the rite money, purchased a set from blackcircle and they sent me tyres from 2016 the cheeky twats, i paid like £330 per tyre, i could have purchased 2016 tyres from tyre leader for £256 each so ie called them and are returning them tomorrow. So looking for honest decent sellers.

Takamo, worth trying Camskill - they are usually good at sourcing all tyres (quick check on their site shows them as £321 each). I've used them before for other cars and each time the tyres were recent manufactured dates each time.

Lots of retailers are selling older / non new stock.
That said it doesn't mean the tyres are bad.
Tyreleader sell lots of older stock really cheap.

As long as the tyres are stored right. Inside. Out of sunlight etc they should be ok.
Michelin have data online about tyre age and tyre degeneration.

I agree, reason im returning the ones back to blackcircle is purely because they are too expensive and they didn't state that they were DOT 16 and by law retailers are meant to state this if they are more than 2 years old, tyre leader does as they list both under 2yrs old and older separate. Dot 16 are still fine and safe as stated on Michelin website but its the principle that they didn't state it and charged full wack for them.
