  • Slicks

    Ok need some help.

    I was quoted $431 for a set of Michelin Slicks back in December, now I went down to pay for a set and they wanted $478 WTF

    I know most the field was on Bridgestone last year and I was told you could get a set for around $440 and they are cheaper than all the others???
    And I was pretty shore that Leroy gets Pirelli's for around the same.

    What do you guys think, and how much should I be looking at cost wise?

    Thanks,

      They are passing them on to me at cost plus 3%, happy with that. The supplier has changed the price.

      By the way Dave, you turning up tomorrow (Sunday), Historics tuning day and 15 lap race?

          As you know, we do spend shit loads on tyres, and the money you save helps. I will ring Wattsy dueing the week and organize tyres.
