cheering.gif I am a great fan of Tyron Bands as they saved me from a nasty accident after a blow-out on my previous caravan. I have them fittted both to my twin-axle van and my 4x4 tow car.

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.

I intend having Bands fitted at the next service, not just for the safety aspect but I have seen pictures of the damage a blow out can cause a van. I think I will price up the bands elsewhere before the service in March.
