TyreLeader have them for 125.19 each. Although that is without fitting my local charged me 10 per tyre so still room for a saving.

Last time I checked, Kwik-fit charge 6 per wheel for fitting, including valves, balancing and disposal.

And Oponeo have the same tyre for 124, which with fitting at KwikFit means 130 each, fitted:
Dunlop SP Sport MAXX GT 255/35 R19 96 Y, ZR XL AO Oponeo.co.uk
Or plenty of other choices on there, such as the Pirelli PZero Rosso AO for 120 or ContiSportContact 5P AO for 135, or Michelin PS3 AO for 139, etc., etc.

Except if Kwikfit fits them you will have to pay Audi to re-correct you alignment afterwards and alloy refurbish company to repair the wheels. Wouldn't go to Kwikfit even in a emergency!

Depends on which KwikFit you go to - I've been to my local one a few times and never had a problem. I know such a big organization will have their detractors, but there are some good ones out there too!

Even your local independent tyre dealer or the mobile fitters can end up with the same result. If that's an over-riding concern, then best bet is to go to an Audi dealer (who now price-match on tyres, btw) as if they trash your alloys, they're more likely to sort it out.

I always use my wheel refurbishing company for tyre fitting - they know how to fit and remove without damaging the wheels.

Agreed there's good and bad in the national chains - it's working out which are good without it costing you money.....

Yep, good idea. Sadly the company that did my wheel refurb are 85 miles away!
