Need to replace my rear tyre. The Metzler has been an excellent tyre.
Best price I could find was from TyreLeader.

Anyone have any experience of them.

Actually was wondering that myself, they seem the cheapest out there and claim good delivery times. Obviously in the EU somewhere, or further afield?

I have used them for both car and bike tyres and shall continue to do so.
Excellent service (3-4 days for tyres to arrive) and great prices.

Didn’t find them that cheap myself. Do they ever do pair deals etc?
I’ve found Bikespeeduk have been good value when they do deals on pairs of tyres and their customer service, delivery etc is great.:thumbup:

Don't forget to allow for an increased fitting price, for tyres bought elsewhere 01

The tyre has just arrived (full tracker from the Spanish end and Parcel Force) in the Uk from Spain. It will be £101.44:thumbup: which is a lot cheaper than anywhere else that I could find, excluding fitting in both prices. Have had to wait a week for it is not really a down side.

Tyres from Tyreleader are often old stock, though they generally indicate so in the individual listings.

The tyre has just been delivered. Good service.
I have checked the date of the tyre, if I am correct it is the four digit code. The first two numbers is the build week and the last two the year.
If that is correct then it was made in week 44, 2014 as the code is 4414 or is the above just bollocks.
Bit concerned now. The tyre itself has come in what appears to be the original package and labels that are from the manufactures and suppliers and all the signs are as I have had over the years.
Will take it to my tyre man to see what he says.

Assuming you are looking at the right four digit code then yes you are reading it right.

Had a nose at the tyres I bought, a pair of Rainsports for the car.
Manufacture date is 47 17. Nowt wrong with that.

Just checked the advert and found in the details that it is advertised as a 2014, :angry: (with myself for missing it:angry:) not the same line as the tyre details but it is there.
See what my tyre guy says if there is any doubt that is £101 down the drain.

If that does happen then as they say "you are never too old to learn" :blush: The money is important it is like most I can't afford to lose but it is not worth risking yourself either.

Sadly a potentially expensive lesson learned here.
Never had to check before, wrong I have checked the odd occasion out of interest and the dates have been fine.

If tyres have been stored properly I think they would be ok. Is the shelf life not 5/6yrs?

I'd happily replace a tyre with a 4 or 5 year old tyre and probably have in the past without realising.

There is something ringing a distant about that but I wasn't going to count my chickens too early.

Quite probably as well.:lol:

Bob, ive asked my dealer and he says nothing to worry about,if its still wrapped from original it means its 3/5 years old and tires are abel to be sold in the EU upto 5 years from date of manufacture. So in your case nothing to worry about. Come on Bob you were just to tight to buy in the UK:smirk::smirk:

Possibly but I did not know they were purchased from Andorra until I had bought it and went into the contacts section.

It will not be long before you come over for Dent.:thumbup: It will be good to catch up.
Eight post to go before I get to 5000, only taken me 11 years. :lol:

Yep. :lol:

But to be fair to me I just googled various sites for bits for a big service, filters, pads, calliper rubbers and pot seals, plugs, crank case breather filter, new Cush drive, tyre can't forget that and a couple of toys. Oil pressure and oil temperature gauges.:lol:

Did a quick check on Bike Speed and they were dearer for pads, tyre and oil. Stopped checking after that. The problem perhaps with all site is one day one is cheaper the next day another one is cheaper.
