Default Tyres - where do you buy them from?

ok so we all need them at some time or another but where do you go for new tyres

is it the nearest supplier

is it always a Charlie Brown type joint

is it online from Camskells or the like

I've used black circles and mytyres in the past without a problem.

I get my hobby car tyres from North Hants Tyres.

I've used these the last couple of times http://www.mcconechys.co.uk/

They're local and as cheap as ordering from the online places.

I used to use a local independent when I was in Kent, he was great and pretty cheap and would help out with those little jobs like rebalancing and swapping tyres onto different wheels without charging. A useful guy to know
