Hi if you are near Hamstreet(kent) tomorrow 27th sept, there is an autojumble, I have just been to the Kempton park jumble and a guy there sells Mitas tyres cheap, most traders do Kempton then the Hamstreet event, let me know how you get on. btw the bloke you need is Mick from Portsmouth, don't worry you can't miss his pitch, its full of tyres.

Am on my second set of Michelin Siracs and have nothing but praise for them.
Do you want cheap tyres or tyres that are fit for purpose. Siracs are definite dual purpose tyres and equally at home on or off-road. Getting approx 12k from each so far. No issues in the wet and excellent in the loose stuff.
