etyres sees surge in custom

online tyres retailer etyres is enjoying a bumper 2009 with its weekly sales figures seeing double-digit growth on those achieved in the equivalent week in 2008. The most recent result reported showed a 24 per cent increase, as motorists seek to drive down their vehicle maintenance costs.

'We're delighted that we've seen continuous double-digit growth for the past 12 months, even during these difficult economic times,' said etyres Managing Director Tony Bowman. 'Consumers are turning to the internet to find cheaper prices on everyday essential items like tyres. They are not exciting products, but everybody needs them and they don't want to pay a penny more than they have to.

'Many people think that if they have to economise on tyres they have to buy economy brands, but that's not the case with us. Our customers get premium range tyres for the same price that the high street depots are charging for mid-range and economy products, and we fit them at their home or work saving our customers time and hassle as well as money.'
