For a tyre company they should at least make an advisory of this especially at winter time or if decent the very minimal give you a heads up, sounds like to me the tester needs his eyes checking. I bet he must love looking at the good old Mazdax-5's with huge rust holes I anticipate pass just surface corrosion ( hole that you can fist pump into👊✊) (excited)
In case anyone is interested, I've just had my second car MOT'd at Protyre Slough using this double discounted deal - less than £22 (TCB + discount code). No problem whatsoever and I was expecting my very near the limit front tyres to be at least an advisory (at this tyre shop mind you!), but no - no upselling at all and no advisories (5 years old car in a good condition). Either I got lucky twice or possibly the Slough branch is actually pretty decent.
The old dears car is 4 year's old with 3000 miles, virtually brand new. I'm tempted to use this, id love them to find something wrong with that car!
Yeah, I'm so sceptical nowadays of this. Luckily I live near a council MOT centre where I feel more confident I won't be ripped off for unnecessary repairs
Well your car passed the MOT at Kwikfit in 2019. The fact you didn't get advisories this time could have happen because of many reasons - anything from indeed a "self repair" (not that uncommon for minor oil leaks) to difference of opinion between inspectors to just your local indy not wanting to waste time and effort to type the advisories into the system. In my 30 odd years of getting my and family members' cars through repairs and MOTs (must be around 100 times) I find chains and dealers as reliable/unreliable as most of my local independent garages. I found 2 consistently reliable places - where key staff has not changed for many, many years, but even then I was often disappointed as some repairs have not been done (I wasn't charched though) or my light interior got dirty with grease or there was mud inside and rotting leaves in my cabin air intake as the car was left under trees in the late autumn for a week. I often come to conclusion that if I want a job done properly end-to-end, I better do it myself. And a higher price does not automatically guarantee receiving better quality of services.

I'm sure the deal is fine. I've just had issues previously with ProTyre. Personally, the better/cheaper garages are the independent local ones (always best to ask around to see people's experiences in the area)
Yes but I’m not too sure what your getting at though I typed wheel alignment in on hot uk deals search bar and all deals were expired so are you saying to not use this site and just use google?
You misunderstand this site. Despite the name, it is a popularity contest. Certain things, whatever the price, get voted cold. Fifa, COD, Joy-Cons, wheel alignment...
Have you heard of a search bar? Type "wheel alignment" into it and see what happens.
Ah ok isn’t this site about helping people save money why not post it! I made a mistake by posting a deal which I thought was good and might help people but now deleted as you know of a better deal why not share it with everyone I don’t get it?

£13 off 2 / £20 off 4 tyres. Up to £80 gift voucher on Goodyear + 11.5% cashback using code @ Protyre
Greenflag don't. They act as a middleman, taking a cut from the provider. In much the same way that the RAC provides car insurance. And no, it wasn't aimed at you. Just getting bored of people who just expect everything to be laid out for them. Sometimes I expect them to ask for an op to pay for and deliver it as well.
Me too. I suspect we are both TCB Classic members.
I'm hoping, since I wasn't quoted, that that wasn't aimed at me btw. Sadly greenflag only 50p a corner cheaper for my sizes. But thank you, I didn't know they did tyres.
snapped just now

2 x GOODYEAR Efficientgrip Performance 205 / 55 R16 91V Fully Fitted 104.98 at ProTyre£104.98£119.9813% off
Got all 4 tyres changed today at my regular tyre guy who charge £10 per corner, though my rims are just 15". Other tyre places were £15-18 a corner. Goodyears in the rear and Falkens at the front. Nothing to report and only driven a few miles. Although as originals size were a tiny 175/65/15 to now 185/60/15, feel it has better stability and cornering now than before (of course). Hated the old profiles, car manufacturer start that small for my hybrid so the headline MPG is higher. I wanted to go 195/60/15 but already had 2 185s in the shed.
45k that is crazy. Guess it's a hard compound so it not good for braking and wet grip, but still I don't know how u manage to do for 45k with not good braking and wet grip lol. The best I have done was 30k on continentals where it has about 2mm left, having rotated back to front once.
I done 45 on asda tyres haha although very poor bereaking and wet grip
Just for comparison, recently I bought 2x falken tyres with the eBay 20% offer. I have 2x Goodyear EGP XL in the shed bought 4 years ago, the Goodyear feels lighter than the falken. I prefer the weight of the falken more. Will be putting the Goodyear on the back and falken on the front when I visit the tyre man to change all 4.
Run these on a golf (different size). Do 25k per year and really like them, good in wet and dry and I found them to wear slowly (def last circa 25k). Drive mostly country 60mph roads with little town driving and some towing. Would have bought for Mrs car but horrendously priced for her car.
Barum Bravuris - good middle range tyre for £46 at National with DV412 code. You can use this code for other tyres as well. F1 autocentres will be the cheapest for premium brands - like Bridgestones T005 for £51 or Dunlop BlueResponse for £53 after COMPA2015 code
Yeah.. I need 4 x 205/55/17 decent ish tyres please. Many Thanks
Pavel the tyre deal king! You can find me some for 205/55/r16
Ease boy... you can buy Bridgestones T005 for £47 after DV412 code at National - surely close to you https://www.national.co.uk/tyres-search?Width=195&Profile=65&Diameter=15&Rating=&LoadIndex=

Finally ditched these soft-sided 16" for some 225x45x17 extra load tyres for Mazda 6. A big improvement to body roll / tyre flex. Was sweating a little after having the 225's fitted if they went on but they are fine without spacers. £58.00 each for Avon ZV7's.
6% Quidco as well. Of course using the code may invalidate the cashback but what's to lose?
my old (56 plate) Passat estate was the 2.0 tfsi 205bhp model , I found the Hankook Ventus evo 2 k120 to be a very good tyre with plenty of grip and longevity , that said it was the sport variant with sports suspension so maybe that helped ? . I did suffer badly from wheel spinning but that was partly down to me having the ecu upgraded to 250bhp and of course the fact that it was front wheel drive and my right foot is made of lead !
Confirm the very soft side walls. My passat estate bounces like on a trampoline, but they grip very well in wet and dry. Not good for heavy, estate cars
I have tried both the Dunlop and Goodyear. Dunlop give better grip and handling in the dry. Both excellent grip in the wet. Goodyears seem to have very soft sidewalls and give more body roll but last longer. Just got a set of Avons ZV7 extra load for £62.00 to put on the 17" wheels I have so will see how they fair.

Not bad, op. Might be worth trying oponeo.co.uk/moto - I always buy my loose motorcycle tyres from them as the price comes down the longer you're prepared to wait. They're usually here within a few days anyway.
This is more of a deal rather than a freebie. Yes, you get something in return, but you would need to buy the tyres from them

Todd sold his company to Graphite and Royal Bank of Scotland in 2006. In 2017, it was acquired by Sumitomo Rubber Industries. Today, Protyre has a chain of nearly 160 MOT testing stations and garages catering for servicing, tyre-fitting, brakes, exhausts and batteries.

The Protyre Product range
The Protyre website acts as a link between you, your vehicle and the services it needs whether it's having winter tyres fitted or being checked out prior to its annual MOT. To help you get exactly the service you want the website is split into five main categories. These are:
Protyre provides one of the quickest and easiest ways to buy new tyres for your vehicle. Its range is huge and offers excellent value for money. Most brands are available and the price quoted includes tyre fitting at a garage near you. When selecting your tyres, you will be asked to enter your car registration and postcode and a suitable choice will appear along with the details of garages near you that have available appointments - sometimes the same day. Whether you drive a small family car, a luxury model, a van or a 4x4, having the correct tyres is vital both for safety and for cost-efficient driving. Protyre is an expert at matching the right tyre to your needs. There are tyre brands for every budget from names such as Pirelli, Goodyear, Michelin, Dunlop, GT-Radial and Sumitomo.
All UK-registered vehicles that over three years old have to have a current MOT certificate which is renewed annually. It is an offence to drive a vehicle without one. It is always a relief when your car passes its MOT and even more so if it hasn't cost you a fortune. Booking your MOT online with Protyre is affordable while you can relax knowing every centre is DVSA-approved and maintained to the highest standards. Save money on an MOT by booking it at the same time as your service.
While getting your car serviced can sometimes seem like a chore, it is a vital task. It makes sure your car is safe to drive and in the long run, will save you money by catching problems while they are still minor. Protyre offers three service plans - Bronze, Silver and Gold. Bronze gives a 27-point check, while Silver covers 48-points and Gold covers 59-points. Whichever plan you choose, all parts are guaranteed for 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first).
f you don't want a full service or something is causing you concern, book a same-day appointment for other services that include battery, tyre, alignment, brake, exhaust, steering and suspension checks. If anything is wrong, it can be sorted out quickly and efficiently.
All of the services Protyre offers for cars and vans such as regular servicing, MOTs and safety checks, are also available for your motorcycle.

Protyre and the Foxy Lady Commitment
If you're female, there might have been times when you felt slightly uncomfortable about taking your car to a garage. This may have been down to the 'all-male' atmosphere or the feeling that because you're not an expert in matters mechanical, you might be ripped off by unscrupulous garage owners. FOXY Lady is a scheme that identifies, approves and then goes on to monitor garages, car dealers and tyre centres that are genuinely female-friendly. Once identified, they can (as Protyre has done) commit to the FOXY Lady promise to never overcharge, sell unnecessary items or treat any customer in a patronising way. Their ongoing performance is measured by reviews from women who have joined the FOXY Lady Motoring Club.
