Price Tracker

See how your prices shape-up online

On the 5th July 2017 we launched our price tracker. It's a simple thing based on a basket of tyres that are all 205/55R16 V - the UK's most popular tyre size.

We'll update it on a regular basis and when we've got enough data we might even be able to show some fancy graphs!

For now, here are the prices of these popular tyres at the leading online retailers. How do your prices compare?

British motorists lead the way in online car maintenance

According to a report published by the SMMT, British motorists are exhibiting the fasted adoption rates in Europe for online car maintenance.  Apparently our motorists spend more online on car parts, accessories, tyres, brakes and batteries than they do on cosmetics and groceries. To be fair a set of four tyres does cost a lot more than a bottle of head and shoulders and a Warburton's toastie but online automotive spend is set to increase to £1.65 billion by 2020.

Goodyear Vector 4Seasons OE approval on 27 vehicles

Goodyear Vector 4SeasonsGoodyear have announced that the Vector 4Seasons, one of the tyres tracked in our price tracker, has been approved as Original Equipment on 27 vehicles across ten manufacturers including Audi, Volkswagen and Ford. You might think that customers don't get too excited about this but when 27% of drivers change their first set of tyres, they change like-for-like.

Make sure you've got access to these tyres.

TyreClick Reports Best Month Ever

Micheldever recently reported that their TyreClick network of independent dealer websites (built by yours truly) had it's best month of online sales ever. Following recent price increases across the full range of tyres, customers are shifting from budget to mid-range and premium tyres as they look for better value and tyre longevity.

A surge in sales of 29% shows us a couple of things; firstly people are switching to online retailers in an effort to find great deals, secondly, independent dealers can compete online when they've got a credible e-commerce website.
