oponeo_tyres_website_screenshotA friend told me about this strangely named company called www.oponeo.co.uk , he oddly thought they were from Holland, but they weren’t. So I wondered over to there website and had a butchers.

Website

Very nicely laid out and easy to use.

I gave them a punt and for £194 (inc. delivery, VAT and all extras – not hidden at all), I got one of each of the following:

Bridgestone BT 023 120/70ZR17 (58 W) Front TL M/C
Bridgestone BT 023 180/55ZR17 (73 W) Rear TL M/C

Communication

After the usual email notification, I received other emails stating delivery tracking links. Has to be said, these sent me to a very Polish website which google had to translate for me, but it was obvious enough with time and dates.

I also received a text message (SMS) at 8am on the day of the delivery, stating the estimated delivery time slot of between 3-4pm that day. It included the drivers name and ‘text back’ options to re-arrange delivery to a neighbour or deliver the following day, or day after.

Delivery:

A friendly pole’ in a large white transit van, nearly just left a card in my door, before deciding to venture into the back garden where I was sitting patiently in the sun (having taken the day off for the delivery). Nice round black things successfully delivered 🙂

Timescale:

Paid for them late on a Friday afternoon, received them on the following Wednesday afternoon. So I received them on technically the 3rd working day, that’s not bad at all.

Conclusion:

As you can imagine, they get 10/10 in my books.
