Indeed, although at Costco you can fill up with super at £178.9, another tenner there....

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.
Plus you get to fill up with Costco’s top notch fuel fuel which at my local was 20p a litre cheaper for standard petrol. You could also grab a £1.50 hotdog and drink (not for me but I know many that do) or bulk purchase bog roll just in case.
I spend far too much in that place 😂
The Tyre centre is great though ;)
previous cars BMW’s lots of them. Few Audis and VW’s a few in between and a 1979 Mini.

Great tips, unfortunately I don't have a Cosco anywhere near, but the Asda offer uses my Indi for fitting so I will try to knock a few more pounds off!
The Macan doesn't do many miles and after 4.5 years the fronts still have 4mm so tyre year is quite interesting particularly as my OPC records the tyre year on its health videos. I would be a bit peeved if my new tyres were manufactured in 2020 or earlier.

Seems a lot of hassle to save a tenner to be honest.
A tenner? Do the maths, 4 21” Michelin’s for £780 inc VAT and fitting.

Calm down Kleynie, I was referring to the Camskill, ASDA suggestions etc made previously to your post!

Sheffield OPC have agreed to replace my two front tyres at "cost price" which is £10 per tyre more than Blackcircles, a premium I'm happy to pay for the coffee and pleasant waiting room!

Have you worn the fronts more than the years? I am the other way round and will need new rears this Autumn with the fronts likely to do another summer

Here is what the BTMA says about replacing a pair of tyres, rather than a full set:

"Due to their greater tread depth, new tyres will generally have better grip than the remaining tyres on the vehicle, especially in the wet. This grip differential can lead to vehicle instability under sudden manoeuvres, such as when swerving and braking to avoid a collision. Electronic stability programs reduce this risk but in general it is best to fit new tyres in pairs and to the rear axle. However, where the vehicle manufacturer gives different advice you should follow it."

Steve! That was fine on my Focus, but when front and back DON'T use the same tyres it can't be applied.
