I usually end up telling my dad to go to the local place. I went to kwik fit last time. I was bloody ill and had to spend 3 hours wandering around depsite agreeing a time that morning. Best service I had was with a client who do black circles fittings. And cheap too.

I usually drop the car off at the local tyre place 2 minutes walk from where I work.

Convenient, yes, and not overly expensive.

Barry and Wilkinson, local one is knowledgeable, helpful and is one of the few places left around here that will source and fit bike tyres.

Local tyre shop who actually specialise in wagon tyres but can get anything. Punctures and balanacing free if I pop in and they even came out to the 355 when it gained a flat (no spare)

Camskill if I'm fitting them, Black Circles via local depot otherwise.

I've used Camskill the last few times, not had any problems with them at all.

I tried to source a pair of bridgestones for the OH's bug a few years ago, got a few numbers off the net...

All of them said they didn't stock/couldn't get the size.

I phoned the last mob, already mentioned here, from a garage forecourt, the garage owner then phoned from inside. The tyres that they didn't stock were delivered within 24 hrs...

I go through that garage always now.
