Tires/tyres online. Need recommendation.

A search gives me lots of hits to buy tyres/tires on-line.

But I would appreciate recommendations from EFers of companies that deliver whatís on the tin without customs/boarder issues. Iíd prefer to buy from CH, but wouldnít turn down a bargain.

Apparently 1 March is the beginning of meteorological Spring* and temps forecast to be +6 or higher from now.

*I had to search for it.

I have used https://www.reifendirekt.ch about 10 times in CH & France. Factory fresh tyres usually a few weeks old, sourced in Germany & delivered to a local tyre shop within a week. The price is cheaper in CH than FR/DE due to lower VAT in CH.

Thanks fmf, I note that that site redirects to 123pnues.ch

Iíve got a 16+ year old Yaris. Need summer tyres but donít want to break the bank, particularly when the tires will likely be more valuable than the car.

Hit the Swiss flag at the bottom for CH prices, not sure why but I went via 123 to post the link. It's working for me https://www.reifendirekt.ch/

Re: Tires/tyres online. Need recommendation.

I bought my summer tires last year from reifen-pneus24.ch.
Very good prices, Swiss VAT paid ( so no additional charges ) and quick delivery.

It's the same company (123pneus is in French, reifendirekt is in German) and the prices are the same -- I've used them many times as well and have the same experience as FMF. Fresh tyres at good prices.

Re: Tires/tyres online. Need recommendation.

Another vote for reifendirekt.ch - I've used them for all my tyres since in CH, always delivered factory fresh within the stated time.

Re: Tires/tyres online. Need recommendation.

Have a look at Ricardo.

I bought brand new winter tyres + wheels for my Audi on Ricardo. The seller changed the tyres just before buying a new car and found out the wheels didn't fit on the new car. There are always such cases on the market.

As I could also sell the old wheels, I had a new set of Dunlops for 100 CHF

Since I see that you're located in Nyon, I would check out http://www.pneusclaude.ch/ as well. It's a tyres' selling/storing/fitting place. From a quick comparison I did vs reifendirekt, my Blizzaks LM 005 were CHF5.- cheaper per tyre at Pneus Claude.
I don't think they deliver though, if that's your primary concern.
