    Why are you using Audi to replace a tyre?

    well cos thats where i bought the car from and if when i have had tyre replaced there is the slightest bit of vibration i will come down on them like a ton of bricks - the last car i had was never the same after the first set of tyres dont know why - hope this one doesnt go the same - jeeez i cud kick myself if only i had swerved a little bit more i only caught it by about 20mm

    If any garage replaces your tyre and your not happy, surely you'd take it back and get them to sort it?

    Most Audi dealers don't even do their own tyre work, so why pay such ludicrous rates for a 100 tyre?
    Ring up a local alloy wheel specialist and ask them where they get their fitting done. It won't be a high street outfit but a specialist wheel fitter. Make sure they use the stick on weights which are far more accurate than the rim variety, as well as being kinder to your wheels.
