Ive used black circles and my tyres. Its also worth a look on Halfords, I had some fitted on Monday because they were the cheapest due to there 5 off when you buy 2 or more tyres.

I've just ordered a pair of Michelins for the Yeti, Mytyres.co.uk were cheaper than everyone else by 15 per tyre.

Depends where I am. Quite often it's Bathwick Tyres or Kwik Fit with the driving school cars. I did buy a set of 5 winter tyres complete with new steel wheels off mytyres for 450 a few winters ago. The last time I had a full set of 4 summer tyres on I went with Kwik Fit as they had a deal on and they came out and fitted them on my drive for free whilst I had a day off/in the office to do my accounts. I'd deffo do that again - much easier!

same as that.

great service from black circles, especially when they have a promotion on.

ebay has turned up some proper bargains before. i managed to get a pair of barely worns for my golf for 2.31p within 10 miles of my house.

whoever it is I wouldnt use ATS,especially the Trowbridge depot, my daughter was scammed last week into paying 60 per tyre for a 155/70 13 budget tyre. she had a puncture and was told all 4 tyres were illegal, they werent, I had only just bought her the car and had serviced it and checked tyres etc. Im an ex traffic cop and wouldnt ever let my young one on the road illegally or with dangerous parts..

They really did see her coming

I use MyTyres almost exclusively now and they are great to deal with. I used to search for the best deal but could usually only get a quid off the MyTyres price and after surfing around, I'd go back to the cheapest only to find the price had miraculously increased so now I don't bother. In fact I've got to buy a set of 205/60x15 for the Bug soon and in my favorite tyre, Goodyear, MyTyres price is lower than some of the other tyres that I consider at the 'cheap' end of the market.

Camskill for the bug, Brand new Vredestein T-trac, 43 ish...

Used to use Ebay for part worns, but not any more. Not sure if I've become more decadent, or just can't be fucked with trawling around for hours looking for tyres that aren't fucked.

Has anyone used etyres before?

They have a 25 off deal at the moment if you buy x4 tyres which makes them the cheapest by nearly 20 compared to anyone else.

The Polo needs new tyres all around and I am thinking to try etyres for Bridgestone Turanzas.

I've used etyres before and had no issues. Turanzas are a good choice too (used to work for Bridgestone).
