Never gone down the mail order route before when wanting new rubber but after doing a bit of research it seems like there is quite a saving to be made...

Problem is some of the local garages are quoting £15 a corner to fit the things..is that about right?

What are you chaps paying just for the fitting process?

For 225/40/R18 wheels if it makes a difference...

edit: title is supposed to say 'How much should' :(

10~15 quid sounds about right, I doubt size makes a difference to be honest. A lot of places wont do it at all.

Have a look at blackcircles - you pay the online price and take your car to one of their partner garages for fitting

£10 - £20 each is about right for most places.

Sort of extortionate when you consider the amount of work involved.

Blackcircles.com give you the option of getting them fitted locally. Expect to pay no less than £10 a wheel.

I pay 8quid per rim for mine for balancing/valves weights etc try to find someone who knows a tyre fitter think you could find someone! I ordered tyres once from a national chain and the guy who fitted them now just does the fitting on my internet tyres.

Paid £10.00 each a few weeks ago when I bought mine online and took them to a local fitter..
