Tyre fitting services

Anyone got any recommendations?

Are the mobile tyre fitters as good as taking the car in to a shop/garage?

I assume they wont be able to adjust the tracking if it needs it?

Can't recommend one as haven't used any, but with regard to tracking these days its done by lazer, they stick moveable plates under your wheels and hook lazers to your wheels.
Used Kwik fit last week, please book and pay online as it's usually about £20 cheaper. Service was very quick, would definitely recommend.
Local independent tyre garage is what I use.. Just ask about or goggle to find one that's been around for years and go for it...

I paid £42 for a fitted tyre for a budget priced tyre on a hatchback for your comparison.
local garage here is cheapest but they really don't know how to speak to people

I travel 40 miles just so I dont have to put up with their miserable asses

All Kwik fits...priced it up and then went in, they admitted that buying and booking online is cheaper so I went away and booked it online for the cheaper price.

Just did a quote on blackcircles and just a couple of quid more expensive than Kwik fit for the same tyre I had fitted.

It applies to all tyre places.

People going into a place are far less likely to price check and may be in distress purchase mode (eg just had a puncture) so the tyre place can get away with charging more. Its been shown that very few people will walk away after being given a face to face price.

People who take the time to ring around will get better prices, but the best prices are from internet shopping.

Other place to try is ATS, normally get a little quidco/topcashback on that and similar price to Kwik fit!

Just to add the telephone price is normally the same as the face to face price in my experience.

Online is discounted and you can book in a slot convenient to you. Win win in my book for non urgent stuff.
As others have said, Kwik Fit online are normally well priced. Then select the home fitting service as it is much quicker than going to them plus the mobile fitters don’t seem as interested in the up sell that the store fitters try.

Not experienced any upselling or problems going into Kwik fit when ordered online, then again I do usually go for the early appointments, normally drive in and car is in a bay being worked on in less than 5 mins. Do find ATS cheaper though with cash back, ATS also do student discount if you go in face to face.
