Toyo R888R / Helmet bag

Post by Talkiet » Tue May 30, 2017 7:14 pm

OK,, sorry for the misleading topic but...

I'm after a couple of Toyo R888s for my fronts, and over $260/tyre seems a little crazy when Demon tweeks have them for $134 (NZD! but before shipping and tax) each. It's probably not economical to just get 2 of them as they would still breach the GST free threshold and not be a great deal.

However, if it was 4/6/8 tyres and a Helmet bag and whatever else from Demontweeks then it might make sense.

So anyone else in CHch want to split some shipping (and GST etc) from Demon Tweeks? Has anyone bought tyres from them before? Are they going to let me get right to the final checkout and then refuse to send that particular brand to NZ because of [reasons]?

Cheers - N

Or, does anyone know where to get cheap 185/60/13 R888s in NZ?

Looking at the shipping calculations, each subsequent r888 adds around $60, so actually closer to $204 each excluding GST for all but the first tire, which is more. I don't think the price will ever become too exciting regardless of how many you order. Though I've only checked up to about 5 units worth.

Pitty aliexpress don't have them, they'd cost $50 each with free post, and the customs declaration would have them valued at $10 for the lot.

I have seriously looked at them for a car lot of stuff, seats, belts, ovaries etc and some grass autocross Mini tyres. Could be keen to test the waters with some stuff.

Give me a call.
