Hiring tyres instead of wrecking your own

Just some info for Brisbanites (and surrounding areas). If you're off for a weekend of tyre shredding fun did you know you can hire a set of tyres and thus save your own rubber? Fourbys at Moorooka is the place to go (may be others but I'm not aware of any). I had a set of Baja Claws for a weekend recently and they were awesome - can highly recommend them. Bloody noisy on the black top but off road they are amazing. Almost as good as lockers. I assume that readers in other cities would have access to a similar service.

When I got mine the $55 did apply but they said they were in the process of updating their costings so expect a rise soon. BTW it's a minimum of 2 days hire. Pick up Friday and return Monday.

i'm guessing that is a per tyre cost?
Claws are illegal aren't they? - think simex's are legal though?

No $55 for the whole set, so $110 for a weekend.

Do you get wheels included in the hire or do you need to do a change over of tyres from your rims?

If you have an accident that is related to tyre failure or incorrect fitting is the tyre company liable?

Is the type of tyre that you hire covered under your own insurance policy and is the tyre legal under state law ?

1. Wheels are included. They keep yours in storage.
2. No idea - ask them
3. Didn't check, didn't ask. You'd need to check with your own insurer and appropriate authorities.
