Had the unfortunate mishap of knackering 1 of my tyres front wheel, due to a pothole, luckily alloy ok but sidewall damage on 10k miles tyre. Had a few problems getting the same tyre Hankook 195/45/16 s1 Evo Ventus. Just want to recommend this site mytyres.co.uk. I ordered on the tuesday and was delivered from Germany by thursday 2 days cost me 60 plus 5 delivery because I only got the 1 tyre.

Have something to contribute?

exactly the same thing happened to me, couldn't get hold of the tyres anywere apart from online (Mytyres.co.uk). Apparently the waiting list for the hankooks is about 3 weeks because they ship them from japan to america, then to the uk to avoid paying import tax (or something like that i was told). Was a pain in the !Removed! because you don't really want to be putting different make tyres on different corners of your car, especially when its near enough brand new!

I thought they were made in Eastern Europe?
