Hmm those A052 look tasty , is that a typo on prices though as MLR RRP is cheaper than 1st price break for <5 tyres and on >5 tyres its same as RRP ?

Don't mean to put the group buy down but this doesn't seem like a saving.
For my size specifically (235/45/17) on TyreLeader you can get them at the following prices
Sport V105S: £74.29
AD08R: £103.78
A052: £235.29

Not savings to shout about but a few quid or am I missing something?

I was thinking the above too..

Just checked on a tyre comparison site and the AD08R's in your size are even cheaper; £100.38 each...

It seems the best buy are the A052's; I can't find them anywhere near the price offered here

Edit: just checked the AD08R price here in France; slightly cheaper at £97.54 each

Guys, I can only offer MLR prices based on what we get them for from Yokohama themselves, and they have always been very competitive and helped us with Evo sizing which has usually meant we've been able to be a little cheaper than others - in Evo sizes.

However, not every supplier buys their tyres direct from the manufacturer, and it's not uncommon to find companies advertising prices but sometimes don't have stock, or there's additional charges for delivery etc, but if you're able to beat the MLR prices that's good news for you not so good for us

There's also very little margin so we are trying to give you the best prices we can.

I admit I got my spreadsheet calcs wrong on the A052s though but that's right now!!
