    Default Are tyre fitters all grumpy?

    Ive just phoned the tyre fitter at the end of the street for a price on fitting my new tyres and he bit my head off because I hadnt got a quote for the tyres from him!? Are all tyre fitters grumpy if you turn up with rubber from somewhere else and ask them to put it on, or have I just caught him on a bad day?

    I think a lot of them must be feeling the effects of on-line tyre buying and must get sick fed up of the same phone call " I have 2 tyres from blackcircles how much to fit". They should just bloomin well lower their prices then !

    I had the same but for different reasons today lol, I have had 4 goodyear eagle F1's aysmettric 2's fitted, booked them online. They say they will call 24 hours before giving you a fitting time........So 5pm came yesterday and no call so I tried to call them as website said close at 5.30pm, no answer, so I called this morning. I asked what time I can bring my car in for fitting, his reply was "yeah mmmmm Scott Evans yeah, well whatever, now, later maybe". What kinda answer is that lol, so I said be there in an hour he said ok and phone went dead.
    Turned up and all he did was b**ch about how much I had paid for them (£270 for all 4 fitted) and worried he wouldnt get paid for them haha......He said these tyres cost us £85 to buy inand sell for £116 and your paying £68 a tyre....I just said im lucky my dad works for goodyears sorry lol

    Thats what I thought. Another charges £15. That includes everything that you need, balancing etc.

    The guy who fitted my tyres wasn't grumpy, but I was when he said "your ASTRA will be ready in five minutes"
