Does anyone know where to buy wheels and tires online?

I've used http://www.autoteile-meile.ch for parts, and would love a site like that for wheels and tires.

Any suggestions?

Re: Does anyone know where to buy wheels and tires online?

I have used Reifen Direkt, had around 2 weeks delivery time. I ordered a set of 4 tires. 3 were delivered and i had to wait another 3weeks to get the 4rd one delivered.

A friend told me he ordered his tires from Reifendirect, when he recived his new tires and he wanted to get them changed over on his rimms. In his village all were asking a much higher price to put them on if the tires are not bought from them. One was asking Sfr 70.- for each wheel plus Sfr. 10.- to get rid of the old ones, also he was realy busy so he would have needed to wait another 10 days to put them on.

I belive most workshops which are listed on Reifendirect want a much higher price to mount them.

I got mine within a few days. Also had to go to one of their partners to get them fitted...seems to be normal that workshops charge more if you don't buy the tires from them. They probably wouldn't make any profit if they did it for just 40 francs, so they only do that if they can make their profit on selling you the tyres at the same time.

You can actually get the tyres delivered directly to the partner garage. If I'd known that earlier it would have saved me a lot of hassle

Yes you realy could save a lot with reifendirect, just give a cal to the listed workshop and ask about the price.

I got some quotes from some dealers for 4 tires 215 R16 60 98H

Pneu Egger offered something near 1400.- including fitting. The cheapest local dealer was offering 970.- including fitting.

Preice delivered by Reifendirect was 580.-, fitting was Fr.120.-
