Beryl Beemer gets new tyres, front pads and spark plugs
Took last Tuesday off from work, tennis day....bugger, rained all day.....typical pommy day that I thought I was immune from....
ok...had booked in for two new tyres, take em the wheels, fit and balance whilst you wait, free coffee, this month's Cycle torque magazine to read and keep.....
Got new front and rear Metzler ME880 Marathon tyres as I get 20,000kms outta these. The rear was probably just under legal, whilst the front still has some reasonable tread, but change em as a pair anyway...
getting what I think is a fair deal from the dealer:
Metzeler front tyre ME880 RRP $254 sold for $203.64 x1
Metzeler rear 160/70VB17 RRP $314 sold for $258.18 x1
Changed tyre valves RRP $5.01ea sold for $4.55ea x2
Bendix disc pads front RRP $53.8 sold for $48.91 x2
Spark plugs Bosch XR7 RRP $13.67ea sold for $12.43 x4
Total invoice $618.46 plus GST 10% of $61.84 =$680.30
Dealer is Motohansa, at Rydalmere, fairly close to me, ph 9638 4488, Jeff or Tony
