Unfortunately I have a slow puncture in the rear left tyre.
The car has just clocked 25k in 4.5 years and the tyres are original.
3mm on the rears and 4.2mm on the fronts.
Rather than have a puncture repair done on a 3mm tyre, I started to shop around for 2 new Michelin Latitude Sport 3 295/40/R20 106Y N0.

Rather surprised that Halfrauds come out cheaper than even BC as they currently have a 10-15% discount dependent on number of tyres purchased. Even better my local tyre indi has agreed to price match Halfrauds @ £242 per tyre.

I am assuming that any tyre supplied now should have a date of manufacture of 2022? I admit to never checking the date of any new tyre I have had fitted in the past but will do on these before they take off the old ones and fit these.

£242 is about right for those tyres. My local indi lists them at around £247 each, but can be persuaded to discount further. I've never checked date of manufacture on a new tyre, and have no plans ever to do so.

Halford have taken over several big tyre distributors in the last couple of years including National Tyre Service.

Asda are currently a bit cheaper £238.88:

I have 21’s on my GTS and I purchased four Michelin Latitude sport N0 in March at Costco for £780 fully fitted. They currently have a deal on these tyres and definitely worth checking them out.

The Asda price is all inclusive at a local tyre dealer - choose from listing.

Camskill's price is plus £11 for delivery of two tyres.

Then plus fitting, valve, balance and casing disposal charges at your local tyre dealer.

I've heard of tyres up to 2 years old being supplied by some online places, however it is only an issue if you do so few miles that the tyres need changing due to age rather than wear.

That's OK if your already a member and have one of their [tyre fitting] stores near. If not, then you need to factor the relevant annual membership fee...

Seems a lot of hassle to save a tenner to be honest.
