Event tyres offer

Just a quick heads up that Event Tyres have an offer on Falken tyres at the moment.

Just ordered two replacement fronts for the family wagon for £95 fitted so thought it'd be worth sharing!

What size were they as looking for new tyres for the new bus (dealer rubbish is on atm) but a weird size in 205/55/17 ,Michelins at Blackcircles are £110 each Which is more than my old Corsa Burgs 18" with Rainsport 3's !!!

These are 205/55/16. They would have been cheaper but we need a high load rating of 94 as the family wagon is literally a van

Edit - Just checked for your size and Falken 914 are £78 each fitted but you'll get an extra tenner off if you buy two or more. Not a bad deal at all given the funny size.
