If so try ATS Euromaster and use the code TYREFIT, I just ordered 4 new Vanco fourseasons 121 rated for the worcester and saved £80 over blackcircles and Asda fitted price. allthumbz
Over my local garage the saving was £150! allthumbz

Just had a bit of a conflict with Blackcircles, wanted tyres for the car, specified make etc and insisted they be no more than 6 months old.
Was told by them this was impossible and that they considered that any  new tyre up to 5 years old is considered by them to be "new"
I argued the case that they were totally wrong, they disagreed so told them to  censored! off!!

Made the same case to a local garage (Nicholson's Stalham), they totally agreed and got me tyres less than 6 months old, same make and spec and were cheaper than Blackcircles too, no fuss, no bother....

When I bought mine from the local Mr Tyres depot I told them that if older than 6 months I would not have them fitted, they ordered them in and rang me to say that they were all 6 weeks old, I checked when I went for fitting and all was correct allthumbz

That's what I tell my usual tyres place too, and they, now at least, take it seriously. The reason they didn't get the job mentioned above was they could only get 3 of the ones I wanted at the max life I'd accept, hence the other, local, garage could and did and got the job.

Main reason for all this for me is that we, the consumer, have no control over how the tyres are stored, they could be in a pile 50 high for all we know, are they kept in the dark and cool, are they standing upright or laying flat, if flat, as they probably will be then the side walls will be taking the weight of the others above as they are not and cant be inflated.

I could go on!

I will find out in the morning but if the tyres offered tomorrow are not bang up to date I am not accepting them. Current ones are dated 2011 on a 2012 van out of interest and I know the chassis came straight from the factory as I had to wait for a special order. 31000 on the clock and they still have loads of tread so pretty impressive from Continental!

I have a 2017 Nuevo with less than 14000 miles on the clock and I am wondering if it’s time to replace all the tyres.

Looking at the date code on the tyres which is 11/16 
The tyres are presently Continental 215/17 R15 CP

Should I change them ? 
I understand there is no legal requirement to change them.

My thinking is to have the tyres checked by a professional tyre company

Best get them checked but sounds like they may have a year or two yet.

I am removing the original tyres from my December 2019 Boxer based Kingham. Continental Contivan Contact 100,  215 75 R16C 116/114. Manufacture date is 4718, van registered 12/2019. Van has done 13,000 miles. They therefore have quite a life left.

If anybody wants these four tyres they are free for collection from Rugby although a cheque to my favourite charity would be nice. I need to know today since they will be left at the tyre fitters otherwise.
