    Default Tyre change price

    Looking at getting me 4 new tyres as mine are a little.... low

    I've sent neobro's an email seeing if they have 4 nt8000's in stock (as their ebay shows only 3, and there website doesn't even know they exist for my measly 215/55 16 tyres). Anyhows if they come back with a yes, i will probably order them.

    Obviously i need someone to fit them, so i emailed a few people, and one has gotten back to me so far and said it £14 per tyre (inc. balance and new valve) with £1.50 per tyre if i want disposal (which i do). Is this really the average price im looking at to get them swapped?

    On a side note: if the neuton's dont come through, what's the next best thing in the same price range (currently £60, dont mind chucking in an extra few quid a tyre but since i need all 4 doing, i want to stay out of the premium price bracket).

    I don't want to start a big "best tyre" debate, just a quick nod in the right direction. Nexen's were my second choice, but i've not got much clue (oh and also needs to be an all season tyre).

    Find a local tyre fitter you can slip a bit of cash, should cost more than £20 for all 4 that way

    I enquired at my local garage if they would fit a pair of tyres if I ordered them online, they quoted £10 for them all in for the pair. Then they set about finding a decent tyre to price match the ones I had in mind online, neutons if I remember. In the end I got them to supply and fit a pair for me for less money. No harm in shopping around locally, the locals seem to need the business these days.

    yeah i'll have a drive around. There's a part worn place down the road, did all 4 tyres with part worn's on my crappy little fiesta when i started driving a couple of years back for £20 (and i was surprised to see a fair amount of tread on them too!). So im silently hoping they'll just accept £20 for changing the tyres over if they have nothing better to do.

    For some reason we don't tend to have a lot of tyre fitters round here, and i only know one indie garage that has their own machine. Most of the tyre fitters i see tend to be mobile, and im not paying £20+ per tyre for the convenience of not driving a mile :P

    They do usually charge for the wheel balance and it's best to fit a new valve. It's a fair price to be honest.

    However i have my own tyre machine which i bought for cheap money and it paid for itself years ago with the first set.

    If you have the room & a few cars in the family it could be worth getting one they work off 240v and for 10"-20" wheels or some manual ones you need a compressor 50 litre or above there ideal for 10-16" wheels and there cheap.

    yeah i wouldnt pay more than £5 a tyre for fitting and balancing, its only £5 most places round here for puncture repair which is more labour intensive and still requires new valves and balancing

    Yeah i searched neutons on here. In fact this is where i heard about them. If it weren't for all the buzz about tyres (and subsequently neutons) on here, i'd have probably have just got cheapo budget boots for £40 a tyre fitted :P

    I'd love my own machine! As well as i'd love somewhere to stick a 4 poster so i dont have to muck around with jacks (4 posters really arent as expensive as i thought :P ). However i don't even have a drive to work on (im limited to workin on my car of a wekend, on the factory car park over the road), so whilst i could probably make it pay for itself, i dont have anywhere to stick one
