Big Cost Savings On Tyron Bands


Recommended Posts

:D After contributing to another thread on Tryon band I was checking out the prices paid for replacement tyres and Tyron bands on my Avondale Landranger, twin axle van last year. I had the bands fitted to the van which was new to me when I had the tyres changed.

 

The prices I paid are REAL BARGAINS compared with what some folks have been quoted by caravan dealers. I thought that this information could help to save some of you a lot of money.

 

We had 5 bands (13 inch wheels) supplied and fitted - we did the spare wheel too, in April 2004.

 

The price was £34. 01 per band for each wheel, or £170. 38 FOR ALL FIVE. plus £5. 88 for the "customer care kit" (Basically an extra long Allen key which you give to a tyre fitter if he needs to remove the tyre to repair or replace) and £17. 63 for carriage on the 5 bands. (Excuse the odd prices they with VAT added)

 

The company Tyrecare of St Helens is a member of the Hi-Q network and so there is probably one of their members near you, wherever you are. Tyrecare give an excellen personal service and keep our 2 cars and caravan well tyred.

 

Regards and happy caravanning on Tyron Bands - I'm not on commission from Tyron or my tyre dealer by the way.

 

Regards

Big Tim,

 

I must make a note of them as they aren't too far from Sale, especially as the price seems to be a lot less than the £65 each I paid last time. Well worth the cash at any price.

 

Thanks for that one

Big Tim, thanks for your advice. At the Earls Court Caravan show at the beginning of November I asked one dealer if the particular caravan I was looking at had Tyron bands fitted as standard. (Only because I had just obtained an insurance quotation and apparently if Tyron was fitted we could claim a small discount on the premium, 5% or 10%) The price I was quoted per wheel was £155! :o

 

Better make sure that fitting them retrospectively will not invalidate any manufacturers warranty, I'd feel happer with them fitted. ..... even happier at less than £40 quid per wheel. Makes it quite expensive when you've four of the blighters to attach.

 

Regards
