    Been shopping online for 2 front tyres.
    Did a bit of research
    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/92873/all-season-tyre-test-20172018-results-by-category

    Checked prices for nearly all fitters etc.

    Best Price for my choice of Michelin was Kwik Fit, also says you can get free mobile fitting for 2 or more tyres.

    Best price per tyre by at least 10. also freebie winter care kit when ordered online
    https://www.kwik-fit.com/offers/michelin-winter-kit-offer and CB from Q 3.5%TCB 3.28%

    Still just about 100 each but as car is the newest I have ever had, I want to make sure I get th best I can.

    Hope this can help others who may be looking for tyres.

    Also you normally get your receipt in a wee booklet that sometimes has money off stuff in it. I know the staff at my local and have always had good service from them.

    They are cheaper booking online than calling in and sometimes have discount codes on their website.

    I've only assisted accountants on a temp basis in the past, I used to do the clients' book-keeping for two accountants, and it was fascinating. Shoe-boxes full of a year's worth of tatty receipts, that sort of thing. I used to transform all the muddle into tidy books so that the guys had accurate figures to work with.

    Dawn is in a different league altogether, definitely not easy for her with a job and family as well. But the rewards will be worth it.
