Just ordered Grabber UHP's 104 quid/tyre all in from local tyre specialist. Be interested to see if they are as good as everybody says! Had front discs and pads done by village garage for 238 quid all in, that included resetting the warning lights and curing an annoying warning light from the airbag. VW wanted 75 quid just to run diagnostics....

I've seen 4 "strangers" in my local park park over the last few days - all with Grabber UHPs!

Anyone here with a green 06 with lots of surfer and Woolacombe Bay stickers?

104 quid each fitted. Currently on Nexen Roadian's which have done 30k+, so not bad at all.

They come to your home or business.

For a Portsmouth postcode [don't know where you are in Hants]Grabber UHP 235/65/17 are £105 ea for 2 and the 255/60/17 are £115 ea for 2. You save another £5 or so per tyre if you have a set of 4.

They are on back order apparently. Still waiting for mine, should be in this week. Tyre punter reckons they are made in batches of 600??

Move up to 19" and the price shoots up.
