Ebay... I just got 2 brand new Run Flats for 115 + P&P.

Other than that, blackcircles.com or etyres.co.uk where about the cheapest I could find, but they are all fairly similary priced

i'd also add, if you love your car, then love it more try some standard tyres, non-runflats will change your car beyonf belief and for the better

YES I do love my car!!! no question about that at all!!

Do you think having normal tyres on the car will affect the price/ put people off when I come to sell?

thanks

for runflat tyres at cheap prices you can always try Magnum tyres in Ely who offer mail order deliver or mobile fitting within their region.

Simon there is really helpful and will advise on what options are available to you whether run-flat tyres or standard

there site is Cheap Tyres online UK: Mail Order Tyres from Tyres Unlimited or 01353 741771

I always find Micheldever Tyres are best for any performance tyre and they usually have quite a choice, even in exotic sizes. Micheldever Tyre & Auto Services

I believe they are the largest independent tyre dealer in the UK and, if you're in Slough, it's not too far a run. Beware, there is always a big queue, especially at peak times, for their 'drive through' fitting service but there is a comfortable waiting area they have just extended.

As has been said, you may consider ditching the run-flats. There is plenty of discussion about it on this forum. I've gone for Vredestein Ultrac 17" non-run-flats (not available from Micheldever, though) on my 2004 Cooper; very smooth and great wet grip. Topically, the Ultrac is a summer tyre, I'm running Michelin Alpins at the moment for winter... I must be the only person in the south of England with winter tyres! They also do a run-flat - Quatrac 3. That is new and I've not tried them; I ran Goodyear run-flats and found them better than the others, especially Pirelli, which I found horrible.
