    I had 4 winter tyres done ( on spare rims ) and it was only several months later whe I went to use them I realised there were 3 one way and 1 the other.

    To be fair they did swap them for free - but they kow me.

    yep!.. Kwik Fit in Beverley removed wheels and re-balanced (from kwik fit in grimsby doing a kak job) - re fitted on wrong sides. Luckily as they backed it out, I wagged my finger at them and said re- do it properly. Following the tracking was done and the left my steering wheel about 15 degrees off level - had to take it to North Lincs Tyres to have the job done properly.
