bargain for the mk4
« on: 30 March 2011, 16:48 »
Hey guys tracking been out on my car for a while so after work yesterday i went to the garage to get sorted!

Got the tracking done and wanted 2 new tyres, but they didnt have any instock!  :undecided:

Guy working there took me round the back and we found 2 part worns (bout 6mm on each) 1 mich pilot and 1 goodyear!

So went to pay expecting bout £50 and the guy in the office said that will be £20.20 please!

Am i wrong in saying that was a bargain?  :laugh:

Unless their heel and toe'd to buggery..... Trouble is when a tyre starts wearing, it carries on the same nomatter what. Im a lover of new potanzas and a hater of partworn bernados spec rubber.....

Still a bargain though pal and really good of the place to fit partworns for you. Most wont now as their liable if the tyre is defective. I think you have done well  :smiley:
