Best place to buy tyres.
need 2 new tyres soon for a six year old BMW Series1 116i petrol F20
Potenza S001 RFT 225/45R17 91W
have used a well established local independent service garage many
times in the last ten years for servicing, oil changes and tyres etc
and I have always been very satisfied with them.
their price for the two tyres is £123.69 x 2 = £247.38 + VAT =
tyres online price is:
each total £193.22
Fitted Price- Includes VAT, delivery, fitting, balancing and disposal
have fitters within a few miles of my home, closer than my normal
Black Circles and others are also cheaper than my garage.
prefer to use my usual garage but not at an over £100 premium.
ASDA and other online tyre sellers safe to use?
the fitters likely to do a good and careful job or are they paid so
little by ASDA etc they will rush the job.
time I had new tyres my garage refitted the existing valves as the
car has Tyre Pressure Monitoring. Those valves are presumably the
original now 6 year old valves. Might they need replacing?
Anything else I should consider or be wary of?
