tyreland I’ve always tried to mention places where great service has been found. Even better when that service comes with a smile and at the right price.

Two weeks ago I went in search of tyres for my Daewoo Musso. What one may call a jeep in short.

Prices ranged from €95 to €135 including fitting.

I passed by Tyreland, on the old Dublin airport to Swords road. After a swift U-turn I popped in to say hello.

At the time, the shop wasn’t officially open but the gentleman I spoke to took one look at my vehicle and told me to return the following morning at 8.30am.

The tyres were changed around and two new Michelins fitted. The cost €55 each. €110 in total.

Two things of note. In a world gone mad RTE and the Primtime Reports news will never applaud a guy opening up a second store. Two. Service was good and the chaps who worked there were courteous.

Apart from that, two shops in Dublin means rates and taxes and jobs with wages.I think they deserve a note of applause. Simple as it may be, this is my thanks to Tyreland. I also mentioned them on this weeks radio show.

The website says a minimum of 75% thread. I’d say the ones I got were closer to the 100%. Not the greatest pictures, but you get my drift.
