    Melksham Tyres fit and balance, Carsons in Melksham are now Wiltshire Tyres, but not been in since change.
    there are a few deals around for pairs which make the fronts around £30. fitting and balancing extra.
    I can find pairs from places like M&P or other places on line cheaper than I can buy trade.
    what bike? what make of front are you sticking with?

    I have Continentals on the road bike, just keep the same manufacturer as you have on the front, or if your not happy with it, change them as a pair. I do my own fitting and balancing.

    I usually use Carsons and turned up to see they are now Wiltshire Tyres. They supplied and fitted a Pirelli to a loose rear wheel from my VFR800, after a serious puncture. I left the wheel and HM The Wife collected it the next day as they had to get the tyre delivered to them. No dramas, no damage to the wheel, no vibrations from imbalance, happily lifted wheel into the boot of her car. Reasonable price too. Can only recommend after my limited experience.

    Don't get used to these prices if your planning on getting a big bike though, I put a set of Bridgestones on my triumph last month, £280 fitted, my wallets still in shock.

    Eensy-weensy bit thicker than that. My Mich PR4s (fitted) were about that price. New 5s will be a bit more when needed.
    I only have one viceÖI lie.

    Yeah iv a suspicion they saw me coming a little bit, that said the last set was £240+. The problem is I ride the arse of my bikes and rarely get much more than about 4500 miles to a set which gets me in trouble with my mrs.
