Buying Tyres Online?



  Yozz'd up 182
Anyone got a good website they use?

Need some new ones mine are running bald and with the bad weather coming in could do with a change.

blackcircles - you get a discount being a member

or valuetyres

both the cheapest from what i've seen
 
Ive used 3 of those companys with good results, one of the fitting agents for one of those companys told me to just go straight to them next time I needed tyres, I have done several times now and theyve done it a couple of quid cheaper.

In the past I've thought buy online cheap and get them fitted somewhere but a lot of the time this can be false ecomony. You will have to then add the cost of fitting......and...a lot of garages are getting wise to the fact that more and more people are buying online and cutting them out .. and because of this will actually charge you more to fit tyres you have supplied yourself.

Infact a mate of mine in the trade actually told me this ...and he owns his own tyre garage.

So what I'm saying is.....It's always worth a call to your local tyre place to see A) what sort of deals they are doing themselves to supply and fit and B) what they will charge you to fit and valve/balance a tyre you are supplying yourself...then you do the maths and decide which deal is best.;)

Makes sense!, this is what I do now after the fitting agent for one of the above companys told me to just go straight through them instead. edit sorry ive already made this point in the post above lol!
 
Camskill where good for me, Next day delivery (all be it 4pm) Got the tyres fitted for £7.50 each corner.

Wont be going to a random garage for £50 a corner for budget unheard of tyres again when i can pay a lot less and get premium tyres.

I was pretty impressed with blackcircles last time round.

Found a cheaper and better one now where you can order online however I think they are just based up here in Leeds.

Always worth a quick look on ebay, might not find anything but occasionally you can get lucky ;)
 
my local tyre place said can suply a bridgestone turunza for £75!!! i got them for £42 last time! and my mate got charged £40 for a budget tyre then the next day only £30 :S
so looks like ill be getting online next time :)
 
I grabbed some 16" PE2's from bathwick tyres today for £95 fitted a corner, next cheapest online were £107 fitted with mytyres so it pays to check the locals.

Also Kwikfit no longer do the 15%/25% offer on Michelin
