My front tyres will need changing soon.

Could anyone recommend few websites or places (West of Birmingham/ Bromsgrove/ Dorwitch area) for getting new tyres fitted?

My tyres are 175/65 R15 84H

Hi,
I don't have much knowledge on tyres.
Is Pirelli Cinturato P1 Verde any good?

There are some reviews here
What ever you do, DONT use Mytyres to buy the tyres!

They have a website and an ebay branch and while everything reads like they're a uk company, they're not! It took me 3 orders and nearly 4 weeks to get them to send the right tyres! The UK address is just a depot for them to dispatch from and the phone numbers just get re-routed out to a call centre (I cant remember if it was Eastern Europe or Germany). Their customer service department was hopeless and they wouldn't give me the number of the uk depot so I could check things directly.

Basically, they#'re cheap for a reason!

You could probably get a set of tyres from on one of the ebay companies that frequently have 20% off and get your local garage to fit and balance them for around £10 a piece (though that depends on where you ask)
Tyre shopper have 3% off with code, TS3X

Tyre shopper are ok, they are fitted National Tyres.

mytyres' legal / t&c / privacy statements say UK-based co registered 18yrs ago with current & valid GB VAT number. Maybe check your invoice / comms to see what company name was used (not suggesting a UK-based co doesn't outsource support or other elements of its business).

and its products are not spectacularly cheap.

Every part of the business you'll deal with are in mainland Europe.

I never used the term spectacularly, I just said cheap. Their stock was the cheapest outside of importing directly from Italy for the 2 sets of tyres I was looking at.

Your observations and poor customer experience is acknowledged. Regardless, your purchase was with a UK registered company.

I don't know anyone have Costco card

BTW, do Costco do fitting of tyre?
I was checking the price online yesterday, it looks like it is not worth the hassle of purchasing the tyre separately and get a local garage fitted.
