Ouch!
Buying on eBay, matched pairs seem to have increased by over 50% 😮
Has anyone else noticed the same?

Yes, noticed it happen across the board about Feb, along with a lot of other products. Brexit?  :027:

COVID-19.
Like many other products, tire supply chains have been disrupted as well.
On the other hand, I have been able to purchase two sets of Dunlop Roadsmart III tires for my Trophy at a heavily discounted price now that the IVs have been introduced.
I guess it depends on which tires you are looking for...

Changing my PR4GTs this Friday for another set- £282 Ride in & fitted.
 Last changed them 2 years ago and the price increase since then is £17.
I was after a set of PR5s, howver there is a 5 week wait for them at the moment.

The difference online is more marke.
I bought Avons last year; they were around £130 for the pair. I baulked at £180 a month ago, but now the price is £190 to £240 per pair.

Never bought online as the guy who fits mine is pretty competitive.
Price of the PR4s at black circles is £243 so £282 ride in & fitted  is a good price in my view and less than £20 up on the last set
