    Cheap tyre fitting

    Anyone got any suggestions for places to get tyres fitted and balanced cheaply in Stoke?

    My local place wants £25 to fit and balance a pair of tyres, which IMO is daylight robbery for something that takes 5 minutes.

    Ah I know where they are...I'll give them a bell see how much they want mate.

    I wish D M Factors on here weren't so far away as I read they'll do them for a tenner...about what it should cost. Wanna find somewhere cheap...got another 4 need fitting too when these Cupra wheels are done.

    Re: Cheap tyre fitting

    The £25 was for a pair not for four - would be quite reasonable for four, rip off for a pair though.

    Went to Harvey tyres as they seemed about the cheapest..but when I got home I realised they'd used clip on balancing weights. Not impressed, didn't notice at the time. I'll try Malvern next time...

    Re: Cheap tyre fitting

    I didn't think anyone still used clip on ones on alloy wheels, never thought to ask for stick on.

    I got them to quote me for a set of tyres for the cupra wheels while I was there....T1Rs came in at £400 They're a funny size blah blah...£230 delivered on blackcircles. Nice try lol
