    Default Kwikfit website rant, hidden costs

    Need 4 new tyres on the current Mrs KevinG Megane (worst car we have ever bought but thats another rant) so on Kwikfit site got some Firestones @ £43.52 each incl VAT, great they will do, select 4 cos it needs 4, click the order button and then the other costs come in, £9 each for for balancing and valve , thats £36,
    Why cant the cost include the bits which are required
    rant over, i'm now carm.................

    So they can advertise the cheapest tyres, not the cheapest fitted tyres!

    Used them a few times and had no problems, and what you see is what you pay

    Have a look at value tyres, www.valuetyres.co.uk, fitted prices work out about the same as delivered.

    from experience with getting 4 firestones for my ex girlfriends car, i would NEVER use blackcircles, camskill or any other sites like that. the manager, of the tyre depot i got them fitted at after paying for them through blackcircles, told me that they could have done them cheaper (fully fitted) than the price i paid, so BEWARE!!!
