    Default Tyre Fitter Recommendation

    Apologies if this is in the wrong place,
    Its time to replace a couple of tyres on the old girl, which has 215/50/17.
    Dealer wants £165 each fitted.
    Have been onto blackcircles and they can do 225/45/17 for £82 - £94 depending on the make and has fitters around the Nottingham area, anybody here from Nottingham had any experience to share ?.
    i.e didn't scuff the alloys or Kn***ered the pressure sensors

    Thanks
    SJ

    Just let the person fitting them know that you know there is no damage or are aware of any damage so any extra will be their fault. Also prove the sensors work before they touch it.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I had my tyres from ATS at Bulwell which is basically a lorry station now and they were rubbish-scuffed the rims and couldn't balance the wheels cause they had a prehistoric balancer so after complaining I got sent to ATS at Ilkeston who did a really good job and they told me Vec/Sig wheels are quite hard to balance. Not sure if they'd fit your own tyres but worth a ring? Don't go to Bulwell but def Ilkeston if they will do it.

    hope this might help but they seem better than a back street place!!!

    Take a look at the list of dealers that blackcircles provides in the criteria you submit
    Mine returned three and on visiting one of them looked really shonky!
    One of the others was really busy and is family run
    They also offered to beat any quote blackcircles offered me in the future
    True to their word, I searched around, got blackcircles to beat them all, and the dealer took me to £5 below that!
