Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

HerWorseHalf

I tend to use a nitrogen/oxygen mix, I find it works very well! ;)

boltont

Gutted I found out about this offer the day after paying £50 to have two punctures fixed! :(

omendata

Not if you buy one of these. Much better idea Bought one and its suprisingly accurate! https://www.amazon.co.uk/RETYLY-Pressure-Monitoring-charging-Security/dp/B07RRMTLQK

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

MisterNippy

Agreed, I have expired now

Sam_Crow

No need. NTA threads are always good for a laugh.

KongDonkey

Used today. Saved £14. Thanks OP

welsh.hammer

Expensive original price I can get the tracking done for £30 at my local alfa romeo main dealer by trained technicians instead of nationals trained chimpanzees

coerce86

sorry, tyrecity fixed the issue :P about £60 for 2-wheel tracking though which was ridiculous

cliosport65

This offer is national tyres :/ :/ :/

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

adamderak

That was so you could adjust the "factory fitted" Philips cassette player" with your unique album taken of Steve wrights radio program

MonkeysUncle

Dont forget steering wheel slightly offset (lol)

Jukeddci

Yep also with a vinyl roof... I had a mk1 nova which was my 2nd car. It was a 1986 reg was a 1.2 with said vinyl roof. Bloody loved that car

Zinagling

Thanks, i bought bridgestone tyres. Saved me £40

oversleep

How do i get ATS discount?

oversleep

For some reason they remove the avon tyre i wish to buy,,, !!!

pablomalin

I went to their website and Recommended tyres were Rovelo and Sailun. No thanks.

bigwheels

Have a look at ATS euromaster. They offer 10% for saturday afternoon fitting. Plus 5.05% topcash back.

Yeseroooo

Discount also available on Pirelli too PIRE5 - plus if you spend over £250 you can spread cost over 3 instalments 0% - sadly not on Dunlop tyres though. Good find, thanks.

ashishdocs2007

Dunlop Sport Maxx RT...

Mickysafc

Are these Dunlop rainsport ?

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

Zaxxan

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Quinoa

link valid until 31/12/18

gpawan

Just go for a proper hunter wheel alignment if you want one

mickgoodie

Says £29.00 on their Web site. I paid the same for halfford's today which was the cheapest I could find Locally. Most others wanted £25 per corner being adjusted

sueyc

Said I'd need a new tyre. Took elsewhere got fixed no bother. Wouldn't use them again

AndyRoyd

F1AC markets the same credit product https://www.f1autocentres.co.uk/interest-free-credit

Smadmad

I'm hoping that was sarcasm.

oldskoolpug

I would have thought this sort of persona would have made one more likely to get the offer?

AndyRoyd

No forms to fill in? Sounds like a Meldrew Victory.

BraddersJ

Ah, no worries. I can see on their website they actually use Supertracker so no. For reference, here's some opinions from the internet http://www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=123100

BraddersJ

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

TreeMunky

Why would you want your wheel alignment 50% off, you're just going to crash?

extonjoe

They get u in and tell you your tyres are illegal, scam

morrig

Only needed if your car veers to one side or have abnormal tyre wear with correct tyre pressure, so some thing you would have done asp normally.

Mike_Lipyeat

My local place do it all for £8 quid. Cold from me

amour3k

Which Kwik Fit is your local?. :-)

89quidyoucantgowrong

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

McHotpoon

Had a friend who worked for ATS Euromaster and said they had pressure to push unnecessary sales to improve performance. Copied this from a review of them on Indeed. ConsOver worked - Under Pressure from Area Manager to sell NO Matter WHAT..!

bloodgod007

Thanks, got booked in & sorted straight away great service bargain £15......now just need the cash for 4 new tyres

Narkodrom

Seriously dont bother with them. They are trying to rip you off every time you go there

snoopy18

Local Toyota garage , think I'll pass

s50m3

^ what he said

judderman

Something like this www.alignmycar.co.uk There used to be a 5% discount voucher kicking about.

jacek.kazmierczak

I dont think so.....4x245x45x18 for me ...aotelli ...yes budget but b/c rating is only 229 fitted ....so not so bad if 2 pirelli only are in that price .....

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

armoured-smiler

In the title it was spelt two ways to make sure people with search 'fat fingers'

gardner1

guys, could you please correct spell check in title, as when I was searching "tyres" there were no respond there for I posted the same deal again.

stressedman

was hoping there would be more branches, my nearest is +6 miles away.

andysmoore

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

gtd65

matthat

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

Sam_Crow

No need. NTA threads are always good for a laugh.

cliosport65

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

Why would you want your wheel alignment 50% off, you're just going to crash?

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

Zaxxan

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Just go for a proper hunter wheel alignment if you want one

mickgoodie

Says £29.00 on their Web site. I paid the same for halfford's today which was the cheapest I could find Locally. Most others wanted £25 per corner being adjusted

sueyc

Said I'd need a new tyre. Took elsewhere got fixed no bother. Wouldn't use them again

Ah, no worries. I can see on their website they actually use Supertracker so no. For reference, here's some opinions from the internet http://www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=123100

BraddersJ

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

TreeMunky

Why would you want your wheel alignment 50% off, you're just going to crash?

extonjoe

They get u in and tell you your tyres are illegal, scam

morrig

Only needed if your car veers to one side or have abnormal tyre wear with correct tyre pressure, so some thing you would have done asp normally.

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

McHotpoon

Had a friend who worked for ATS Euromaster and said they had pressure to push unnecessary sales to improve performance. Copied this from a review of them on Indeed. ConsOver worked - Under Pressure from Area Manager to sell NO Matter WHAT..!

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

andysmoore

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

gtd65

matthat

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

MisterNippy

Agreed, I have expired now

Sam_Crow

No need. NTA threads are always good for a laugh.

KongDonkey

Used today. Saved £14. Thanks OP

welsh.hammer

Expensive original price I can get the tracking done for £30 at my local alfa romeo main dealer by trained technicians instead of nationals trained chimpanzees

coerce86

sorry, tyrecity fixed the issue :P about £60 for 2-wheel tracking though which was ridiculous

cliosport65

This offer is national tyres :/ :/ :/

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

adamderak

Discount also available on Pirelli too PIRE5 - plus if you spend over £250 you can spread cost over 3 instalments 0% - sadly not on Dunlop tyres though. Good find, thanks.

Dunlop Sport Maxx RT...

Mickysafc

Are these Dunlop rainsport ?

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

Zaxxan

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Just go for a proper hunter wheel alignment if you want one

mickgoodie

Says £29.00 on their Web site. I paid the same for halfford's today which was the cheapest I could find Locally. Most others wanted £25 per corner being adjusted

sueyc

Said I'd need a new tyre. Took elsewhere got fixed no bother. Wouldn't use them again

BraddersJ

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

TreeMunky

Why would you want your wheel alignment 50% off, you're just going to crash?

extonjoe

They get u in and tell you your tyres are illegal, scam

Only needed if your car veers to one side or have abnormal tyre wear with correct tyre pressure, so some thing you would have done asp normally.

89quidyoucantgowrong

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

McHotpoon

Had a friend who worked for ATS Euromaster and said they had pressure to push unnecessary sales to improve performance. Copied this from a review of them on Indeed. ConsOver worked - Under Pressure from Area Manager to sell NO Matter WHAT..!

bloodgod007

jacek.kazmierczak

I dont think so.....4x245x45x18 for me ...aotelli ...yes budget but b/c rating is only 229 fitted ....so not so bad if 2 pirelli only are in that price .....

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

armoured-smiler

In the title it was spelt two ways to make sure people with search 'fat fingers'

stressedman

was hoping there would be more branches, my nearest is +6 miles away.

andysmoore

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

gtd65

https://youtu.be/P6EllJTMrZs

matthat

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

£76.47£9015%
A good price for a fully fitted tyre of Premium brand and good fuel and wet grip rating. Specially useful if your local garages charge £15-20 for changing tyres.
futura

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

HerWorseHalf

I tend to use a nitrogen/oxygen mix, I find it works very well! ;)

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

MisterNippy

Agreed, I have expired now

Sam_Crow

No need. NTA threads are always good for a laugh.

KongDonkey

Used today. Saved £14. Thanks OP

welsh.hammer

Expensive original price I can get the tracking done for £30 at my local alfa romeo main dealer by trained technicians instead of nationals trained chimpanzees

coerce86

sorry, tyrecity fixed the issue :P about £60 for 2-wheel tracking though which was ridiculous

cliosport65

This offer is national tyres :/ :/ :/

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

adamderak

That was so you could adjust the "factory fitted" Philips cassette player" with your unique album taken of Steve wrights radio program

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Said I'd need a new tyre. Took elsewhere got fixed no bother. Wouldn't use them again

89quidyoucantgowrong

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

McHotpoon

Had a friend who worked for ATS Euromaster and said they had pressure to push unnecessary sales to improve performance. Copied this from a review of them on Indeed. ConsOver worked - Under Pressure from Area Manager to sell NO Matter WHAT..!

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

andysmoore

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

MisterNippy

Agreed, I have expired now

Sam_Crow

No need. NTA threads are always good for a laugh.

KongDonkey

Used today. Saved £14. Thanks OP

welsh.hammer

Expensive original price I can get the tracking done for £30 at my local alfa romeo main dealer by trained technicians instead of nationals trained chimpanzees

coerce86

sorry, tyrecity fixed the issue :P about £60 for 2-wheel tracking though which was ridiculous

cliosport65

This offer is national tyres :/ :/ :/

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

Yep also with a vinyl roof... I had a mk1 nova which was my 2nd car. It was a 1986 reg was a 1.2 with said vinyl roof. Bloody loved that car

For some reason they remove the avon tyre i wish to buy,,, !!!

I went to their website and Recommended tyres were Rovelo and Sailun. No thanks.

bigwheels

Have a look at ATS euromaster. They offer 10% for saturday afternoon fitting. Plus 5.05% topcash back.

Yeseroooo

Discount also available on Pirelli too PIRE5 - plus if you spend over £250 you can spread cost over 3 instalments 0% - sadly not on Dunlop tyres though. Good find, thanks.

ashishdocs2007

Dunlop Sport Maxx RT...

Mickysafc

Are these Dunlop rainsport ?

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

Zaxxan

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Quinoa

Just go for a proper hunter wheel alignment if you want one

mickgoodie

Says £29.00 on their Web site. I paid the same for halfford's today which was the cheapest I could find Locally. Most others wanted £25 per corner being adjusted

sueyc

Said I'd need a new tyre. Took elsewhere got fixed no bother. Wouldn't use them again

AndyRoyd

F1AC markets the same credit product https://www.f1autocentres.co.uk/interest-free-credit

Ah, no worries. I can see on their website they actually use Supertracker so no. For reference, here's some opinions from the internet http://www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=123100

BraddersJ

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

TreeMunky

Why would you want your wheel alignment 50% off, you're just going to crash?

extonjoe

They get u in and tell you your tyres are illegal, scam

morrig

Only needed if your car veers to one side or have abnormal tyre wear with correct tyre pressure, so some thing you would have done asp normally.

89quidyoucantgowrong

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

McHotpoon

Had a friend who worked for ATS Euromaster and said they had pressure to push unnecessary sales to improve performance. Copied this from a review of them on Indeed. ConsOver worked - Under Pressure from Area Manager to sell NO Matter WHAT..!

jacek.kazmierczak

I dont think so.....4x245x45x18 for me ...aotelli ...yes budget but b/c rating is only 229 fitted ....so not so bad if 2 pirelli only are in that price .....

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

armoured-smiler

stressedman

was hoping there would be more branches, my nearest is +6 miles away.

andysmoore

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

gtd65

https://youtu.be/P6EllJTMrZs

matthat

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

futura

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

HerWorseHalf

I tend to use a nitrogen/oxygen mix, I find it works very well! ;)

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired.

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

andysmoore

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres.

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

armoured-smiler

In the title it was spelt two ways to make sure people with search 'fat fingers'

gardner1

this is still valid promotion ends 31/10/17 voucher valid to 30/11/18

guys, could you please correct spell check in title, as when I was searching "tyres" there were no respond there for I posted the same deal again.

stressedman

was hoping there would be more branches, my nearest is +6 miles away.

andysmoore

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

matthat

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

Are these Dunlop rainsport ?

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

Why would you want your wheel alignment 50% off, you're just going to crash?

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

Have a look at ATS euromaster. They offer 10% for saturday afternoon fitting. Plus 5.05% topcash back.

Discount also available on Pirelli too PIRE5 - plus if you spend over £250 you can spread cost over 3 instalments 0% - sadly not on Dunlop tyres though. Good find, thanks.

Are these Dunlop rainsport ?

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Says £29.00 on their Web site. I paid the same for halfford's today which was the cheapest I could find Locally. Most others wanted £25 per corner being adjusted

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

HerWorseHalf

I tend to use a nitrogen/oxygen mix, I find it works very well! ;)

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

Agreed, I have expired now

Sam_Crow

No need. NTA threads are always good for a laugh.

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

HerWorseHalf

I tend to use a nitrogen/oxygen mix, I find it works very well! ;)

boltont

Gutted I found out about this offer the day after paying £50 to have two punctures fixed! :(

omendata

Not if you buy one of these. Much better idea Bought one and its suprisingly accurate! https://www.amazon.co.uk/RETYLY-Pressure-Monitoring-charging-Security/dp/B07RRMTLQK

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

MisterNippy

Agreed, I have expired now

Sam_Crow

No need. NTA threads are always good for a laugh.

KongDonkey

Used today. Saved £14. Thanks OP

welsh.hammer

Expensive original price I can get the tracking done for £30 at my local alfa romeo main dealer by trained technicians instead of nationals trained chimpanzees

coerce86

sorry, tyrecity fixed the issue :P about £60 for 2-wheel tracking though which was ridiculous

cliosport65

This offer is national tyres :/ :/ :/

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.

andysmoore

Tbf, I used to have a Peugeot 106. It was a piece of junk. I was expecting it to fail. But amazingly they passed it. Don't know how.

firstofficer

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

Just a word of warning... a mate took his newish BMW there not so long ago... the oil they use is stored in unlabelled barrels (although they say they use Castrol Edge) - so who knows what oil they actually put in? Secondly, its not unheard of these type of garages to cause oil leaks from the sump plug due to misaligned/overtightened sump plugs - just be warned!! Also over-filling has also been an issue.. Personally, I'd rather pay 30-40 squids extra to an indi who knows what he is doing and who you can trust is using the correct grade of oil.. Anyone had any similar experiences? Remember - if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.. Many thanks..

Thedealcatcher

Good deal. £42 for my 1l petrol car! They used top oil though.

jumpinoffthbed

"Some vehicles may require the sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change. If required a small labour charge may apply" Haha I'm surprised they don't charge for parking as well :D 52 quid is expensive for their oil, I only use total quartz in mine and it's £25 a tub. If you don't want to do it yourself get the oil and filter you want and ask your local mechanic to do it he'll charge you 10-15 quid and won't try to tell you your tyres are perished lol.

simes

They did mine a couple of months ago - same price . No issues ( they didn't try to charge extra to remove/refit the undertray , which it says they may do when you book ). They did say my aux belt needed replacing, but i declined from letting them do it. Like others have said its not much cheaper to do it yourself ( my car uses 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec oil ).

bradevosprint

​Id say nearer £20 for the oil, even cheaper if bought by the drum.

TatankaYotanka

Just passed MOT. First fail as electric shortcut in back light. Guy advised to change bulb as this could be resons behind. Did it, arange retest free of charge. All done and dusted for half of the price. So recommended.

123batman321

Agreed. All my tests are done fairly aswell as any other work we do. I also explain the advisories to customers and will try to put people off fixing certain things that have been advised if they dont need doing. My regulars are looked after well and il often do the odd wee thing free for them they appreciate it and know theyre getting a good honest service. Good luck getting that at the dealer or a chain garage

123batman321

I charge full price. Ive never seen no pass no fee i cant see how that could work. Simple maths tells you they would have to make the money up somewhere.

MrRee

Nobody pays full price for an MOT these days. Best garages are those who say "No Pass - No Fee" ... don't bother with anything else. OH, yes, avoid these cowboys ..... it WILL fail on something made up.

Benzyl

Aren't MOT's always half price or thereabouts, the proper list price is £54.85 and nobody charges/pays that.

justanothercid

​a tyre repair should range from £5-£10 normally only place I seen was kwik fit who wanted silly money..

Chiptivo

I have used these vouchers twice and had no problems. Repair to the tyres for under £10 including rebalance and new valves. Not sure about all the hate on here to be honest.

phil_b77

Yeah I had same, tyre not repairable. £120 for new one and another one getting low. Annoying!

tinca

"Sharp intake of breath" The tyre is non repairable, we can supply one for £100 not fitted very well and badly balanced. Oh, and we noticed a deep cut on another of your tyres. We might as well do your brakes as they will need doing in the next 20k miles and we have a special deal on air conditioning recharge........................ Colder than an ice maidens....

rooney10

lol, that's like offering a free coffee and saying that there is a charge for the cup it is served in. Hardly surprising this went chilly rather quickly ;)

Puigor

Two different experiences - had a couple of bridgestones RFT changed first, no problem and were cheapest I could find at the location I was in (Grays branch). Then tried wheel alignment with voucher on misses car, told me 5 degrees out (no chance), then didn't attempt to loosen the nut and charged me an extra £10 to use a blow torch for 2 seconds (Derby Branch).

Arron.Elfassy

They refused to honour the voucher and said they'd only do 4 wheel alignment at a price of 29.95 "per adjustment".... Equating to a bill potentially of well over 150 quid. Lol don't bother with these clowns. Feel duped. It's not genuine offer and it was a waste of a journey

when I first started driving I got conned on my first two experiences with garages - since then I have avoided going to garages unless it has been beyond my knowledge (so far only once in 30 years and then Audi main dealer said it was a head gasket as I later discovered it was diagnosed as my water level was slightly low - they did not solve the problem and charged £250), anyway I have become a dab hand at doing my own4 wheel tracking with long lengths of wood and tape measure + spirit levels, all the manuals say you can not do it yourself ! I disagree and although does take some time I have had no problems of uneven tyre wear or pulling after I have adjusted them!

parkz

can't believe how nieve people still are even this day in age to still drive in to a fast fit center you deserve what you get.... but a guy i spoke to today didn't deserve the service he got... paid a fortune to get his front and rear brakes done to find out less then a week later rear pads and discs metal to metal and 1 rear caliper seized. i wont even tell you about the front!

Any local tyre repair garage will usually only charge no more than £10 for a puncture repair. Avoid the big chains

SPLE22

They get arsey if you do that. The local garages don't like head office promotions and basically there is politics between the two. I had the manager openly curse head office when I was over there and say to me "don't be cheap, get a tyre mate". WTF

HerWorseHalf

I tend to use a nitrogen/oxygen mix, I find it works very well! ;)

boltont

Gutted I found out about this offer the day after paying £50 to have two punctures fixed! :(

Not if you buy one of these. Much better idea Bought one and its suprisingly accurate! https://www.amazon.co.uk/RETYLY-Pressure-Monitoring-charging-Security/dp/B07RRMTLQK

MOJOoo7

Got the oil & filter changed today for less than 43£ for my car with 5£ off code and unticked oil disposal. They didn't quote anything to be done.

MOJOoo7

Just to add if anyone go for an oil & filter change booking online, unticked the box where it adds cost for disposal of old oil. I have done it numerous times and no problem. They are not going to make u dispose the oil. It goes into their oil collection equipment when they carry out this change! Think I will go for an oil change this month as I was planning to sell my current car but now decides to keep it for another year at least. I am also going to replace all 4 tyres as going for 10mm wider. eBay demon tweeks & JJC are doing a 20% off discount for their automobile stuff.

MOJOoo7

^^^ pretty bad that. I only ever use them for oil & filter change. As well I'm never tempted to use any half price mot from any outfits. Always pay full price at the Mot only place, which charge £50 now. They don't do repairs, Mot only.

Supercharge_Me

Can confirm this lot are frauds. Took up their "half price mot offer" Failed my car MOT on a minor, and then when I had it checked elsewhere was told they missed the real major fail which made it uneconomical to repair. Clearly prepared to put a dodgy motor back on the road for cost of getting a bit of work out of me for the minor issue.

kramvic

Anybody wanting tyres from here, check tyreshopper (same company) but prices usually cheaper. Also use cashback sites. We use these regularly and always get great service.

danfisherdan

For this size there is a premium I've noticed. The above is a good deal, I've just spent £380 for 4x Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres today at F1 autocenters which I'm pleased with too. £72.50 for 4 wheel alignment though ???

foxmeister

The THANKS voucher has expired :-(

Super.Noob

Have to agree with Sam. I had two front tyres replaced and later they said that my tracking was off. However when questioned about how off.? They couldn't give an honest answer. They also charge extra for valve, which most places are included as standard. I would rather go Kwik Fit (I wouldn't but just an example how bad they both are) then go back to them.

Smartguy1

These don't fit my car but two pirelli all season tyres for my Kuga come out at £105 each with the discount which is pretty good including a wheel alignment. Cheaper than anywhere else. If anyone finds 235/50/18 cheaper than £105 for a premium tyre can they post please. Has to be a premium brand preferably as I won't buy budget tyres. Had Toyo Proxes on my last car and they weren't too bad for a mid range tyre but sidewalls went soft quick and made car understeer and roll on Mazda 6.

Bullet1980

If you’re running a car needing this spec rubbers, I’m sure skimping on poor spec ones like this isn’t gonna happen...

KongDonkey

Used this free inspection the other day and they picked up a couple of things that needed work that I hadn't noticed. Gave me a price that was reasonable and cheaper than 2 local garages I asked at. They're not all trying to fleece you.

MisterNippy

all true in what you say

Mick.Turner

just a heads up but you should already know keep away from places like this they always try to do work you don't need how they are still going is beyond me,i used to by mot fauliers and some of the fail sheets these guys wrote out were criminal

MisterNippy

Agreed, I have expired now

Sam_Crow

No need. NTA threads are always good for a laugh.

KongDonkey

Used today. Saved £14. Thanks OP

welsh.hammer

Expensive original price I can get the tracking done for £30 at my local alfa romeo main dealer by trained technicians instead of nationals trained chimpanzees

coerce86

sorry, tyrecity fixed the issue :P about £60 for 2-wheel tracking though which was ridiculous

cliosport65

This offer is national tyres :/ :/ :/

ses6jwg

Don't bother my local didn't even do the locking nuts up correctly had to go back and the steering wheel is off more than it was before!

MonkeysUncle

Ah yes, and had room for the manual choke lever. :)

MonkeysUncle

Totally agree. Just buy cheap fully synthetic and change it ready for winter and again in spring, it either works or I'm just lucky. Just as important is changing air filter and for gods sake don't just flip it upside down or bang it about to dislodge stuff. Think about all the fine salt dust thrown up in winter, it's last thing you want in your engine internals. If you take your filter off and see fine dust in the intake pipe, then all that dust mixes with your oil and will de grade it. Anyways old 2ltr audi engine was 168k when I got rid as was still great and didn't burn oil, peugeot engine on 167k again doing good, and honda engine on 120k with no problem and very little oil usage.

Yep also with a vinyl roof... I had a mk1 nova which was my 2nd car. It was a 1986 reg was a 1.2 with said vinyl roof. Bloody loved that car

For some reason they remove the avon tyre i wish to buy,,, !!!

I went to their website and Recommended tyres were Rovelo and Sailun. No thanks.

Have a look at ATS euromaster. They offer 10% for saturday afternoon fitting. Plus 5.05% topcash back.

Yeseroooo

Discount also available on Pirelli too PIRE5 - plus if you spend over £250 you can spread cost over 3 instalments 0% - sadly not on Dunlop tyres though. Good find, thanks.

ashishdocs2007

Dunlop Sport Maxx RT...

Mickysafc

Are these Dunlop rainsport ?

spannerzone

I'd go to an independent for alignment, all these big tyre companies are too hard to know if yo'll get a helpful, truthful guy or some lying scumbag telling you your car is so unsafe that puppies are dying every time you drive it. So many of us have been had over by these companies, for me it's not worth the trouble..... unless you willingly like to pay to have an arguement and enjoy the potential for being ripped off.

Zaxxan

I don't think I would trust National Tyres to align my wheels. Voted hot though for people who want to get through their new set of tyres in a couple of months.

Just go for a proper hunter wheel alignment if you want one

mickgoodie

Says £29.00 on their Web site. I paid the same for halfford's today which was the cheapest I could find Locally. Most others wanted £25 per corner being adjusted

sueyc

Said I'd need a new tyre. Took elsewhere got fixed no bother. Wouldn't use them again

AndyRoyd

F1AC markets the same credit product https://www.f1autocentres.co.uk/interest-free-credit

I'm hoping that was sarcasm.

oldskoolpug

I would have thought this sort of persona would have made one more likely to get the offer?

AndyRoyd

No forms to fill in? Sounds like a Meldrew Victory.

BraddersJ

Ah, no worries. I can see on their website they actually use Supertracker so no. For reference, here's some opinions from the internet http://www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=123100

BraddersJ

Doesn't mention anywhere on their site that they use Hunter gear for alignment so I'm guessing not. Can anyone confirm?

TreeMunky

Why would you want your wheel alignment 50% off, you're just going to crash?

extonjoe

They get u in and tell you your tyres are illegal, scam

morrig

Only needed if your car veers to one side or have abnormal tyre wear with correct tyre pressure, so some thing you would have done asp normally.

Punctures are usually repaired with a 'plug' these days. You have to remove the tyre to push it through the hole. Sidewall punctures shouldn't be repaired. This document details the standard and mentions patches, but I understand plugs are nearly always used these days. Minor car tyre repairs PDF The method of repair mandates tyre removal.

McHotpoon

Had a friend who worked for ATS Euromaster and said they had pressure to push unnecessary sales to improve performance. Copied this from a review of them on Indeed. ConsOver worked - Under Pressure from Area Manager to sell NO Matter WHAT..!

bloodgod007

Thanks, got booked in & sorted straight away great service bargain £15......now just need the cash for 4 new tyres

jacek.kazmierczak

I dont think so.....4x245x45x18 for me ...aotelli ...yes budget but b/c rating is only 229 fitted ....so not so bad if 2 pirelli only are in that price .....

veni_vidi_emere

for ages I was using one garage for MOT, they were finding little things like bulbs. They were not having great business with me as car was running fine so there was no attachment to me for financial reasons, in this place... Then I have moved and garage was like 3-5 miles away - but just 100 meters from my new place was another place. I took the risk and... amount of repairs exceeded value of the car... so these days I don't go new places as long as garage do not loose my trust. My last tyres I ordered from Germany - way the best price. Only ordering was a bit dodgy. I tried to add it on hotdeals but it was rejected for some reason. Maxxis all season, they get good reviews, but found them sliding sideways on road bends, unlike the previous - of forgotten name.

kp1505

Can you get 10% off Bridgestone and the free mot? If I buy 2 bridgestone tyres

Sentral

Budget tyres I got were actually cheaper than Blackcircles. Great deal for me...

grumpyturnip

Call me cynical but I always feel these nationwide companies have a way of MOT failing your car to extract some extra shekels out of you as well as ripping you off with the tyre sale in the first place.
