Seeing as there is a cycling thread I thought we could do with a petrolhead one.

I am looking to buy a couple of new tyres and have read good things about Vredestein Ultrac Vorti. Need them on a 225/40/18 but can't find them anywhere unless you have them delivered. Hoping someone can suggest a local fitter.

4D being an accountant I am guessing at BMW, or at a push an Audi.

I thought a beemer was the car all accountants dreamt of Smiley I must admit I have 50 series 18 inch tyres on my Astra and they give too hard a ride for my liking can't imagine 40 profiles. Like elastic bands on a wheel.

Mercedes were more common in the firms I worked at. I reckon it's a Saab though.

Guess the car 4D drives is more fun than obscure tyre reviews Smiley

Austin Allegro Vanden Plas.
With the square steering wheel, beige crushed velour seats and painted in hearing aid brown? classy little number.

Kall Fit on Kembrey Park will fit customers' tyres, they charged me 12 for fitting per tyre inc. balance.
