Stay safe boet. Chuck that tyre.

Unlike certain other forums, this is a safer environment, so one is not made to look silly when raising simple questions! :salute:

I just phoned the guy I always get tyres from. he gave me prices on 33 inch tyres that he has in stock. the size is 285/75/16.

BF Goodrich KM2 - R3190
BF Goodrich A/T - R2990
Cooper ST MAXX - R3390

this is not a special price or any discount, its his normal price. he normally discounts when you go their to fit.
unfortunately he doesn't have any stock of other brands in stock at the moment. they will be cheaper as these 2 brands are most expensive. He is in Leslie/Leandra not to far from Nigel. their number is 0176830294.
Being alive is a Blessing!!

Thanks Josh

It may not be a special price, but it sounds very reasonable.
I take the Coopers very seriously.
Just waiting for a few more prices.
