    Default Tyre fitting

    Now I've just got my new tyres..can anyone recommend anywhere (Preston area) that will actually fit them?

    A couple of places wont touch them as I've not bought them from them and National tyres want £15 a piece, not sure of that is reasonable or not.

    This is to squeeze the mail order side of things, they don't want you buying off the net, so to even it back up they come up with a super large fitting charge, best bet is to go to a small garage that sells the odd tyre here and there and ask them to fit for you, avoid the chains, these are the groups that will be most anti towards you.

    Look in your local yellow pages for an indipendant tyre company, they don't tend to be quite so 'sniffy' when it comes to fitting a customers own tyres.

    At the end of the day, if their mark ups weren't so stupid, perhaps they'd get the business in the first place!

    to be fair to National tyres, last time I bought some tyres they priced matched the internet prices I got.. was quite surprised they did.

    Wink

    Go into your local tyre dealer this saturday and just ask how much to fit these and make sure he knows its cash that you will be paying with and you dont need a receipt.
