    Not much hassle is it? It would be highly unusual (never done this in quite a few hundred K of driving) to have more than 2 fitted at the same time. And ive never had a car where i cant transport 2 tyres quite easily.

    Thats why i said "Might not be for all of us though" as it might not be hassle for somebody else.

    I thought all Tyres on Black circles was fully fitted ?

    Everyone i looked at certainly is anyway.

    Where are all these cheap prices online ? I can't seem to find anything under £155 for my car fully fitted. Though that is the cheapest tyres available

    I ordered some Fallen FK510s from deamon tweaks last year. £46 for 225 40 18 amazing value. Paid the local garage £20 to fit them. Other half this week damaged the drivers side big chunk missing from the sidewall. So decided to get new fronts and rear. (Rears were budget)

    Got charged £298 for 4 X Avon ZV7 including balance and tracking.

    The next door neighbour moaned he paid £20 for a part worn saying this was expensive.

    Anyway. Local guy does it for £10 here. No tracking or the like though.

    The website defaults to fitted price but you can select delivered only, well at least that's how it was when I last looked.

    £10 is the cash in hand price.

    Pay by card then £20 a corner.

    Not really as lost revenue means losses elsewhere.

    It's much like the smug **** across the road from me. He's out right to the end of his driveway partner by his side every Thursday clapping swinging side to side telling the whole street they are proud to support the NHS.

    Yet he doesn't pay vat, takes cash in hand, has at least 5 family members working for him too off the books.

    However that's the British way it seems. Everyone out for themselves. They call it "great" Britain when the place is a cess pit filled with ignorance and contradictions.

    Had a pair changed yesterday. He asked for £16. I gave him £20 and told him to round it up, then he gave me a bottle of wine as change. Bargain!

    It's "great" because we are the biggest island in in the British Isles, not because we are good or the best. ;)

    But yes I agree what you're saying, sick of hearing patriots spouting how patriot they are while smoking their tax dodging cigarettes.

    Part of being British is being just a bit dodgy. We should be proud of that :p

    if by dodgy you mean broke and the government printing billions of new money every second then that isn't really something to be proud of. the repercussions of which will drive a lot of people to suicide, depressions, poverty, etc. fortunately i'm financially stable however it's amazing how many people cannot see the wood for the trees.

    I just got 2 tyres changed. They charged me £10 each with balancing and then £4 a tyre to get rid.

    But then they forgot to change me to get rid of the old :D

    £12 per corner round by me, but that’s if you select them as the local fitter when purchasing online from a supplier like black Circles etc. They might charge more if you just rock up with them in the boot of your car.

    £8.40 a tyre at Costco, plus they seem to do it properly. Most cheap tyre places round here just whizz the old weights off, balance it and jobs done. Costco take about 45-60 mins to do all 4 as they clean the faces of everything. The £100 off a set always helps too!

    15 to 20 a corner including disposal is generally what they charge.

    Fortunately a friend of mine runs a local Setyres and he charges me a fiver a corner, or occasionally nothing. :D
