    New rubber needed - but from where...?

    Guys & Gals,

    Can anyone out there recommend a tyre centre in the West Midlands / South Staffordshire Area.

    It's time for some new rubber and I'd rather go somewhere that's been proven by some other like minded enthusiasts. I don't want to end up with scratched rims and all the bother that will follow....

    I've been quite impressed by the original Pirelli rubber, having covered 24k in just over 12 months but now all four are shagged!

    Thanks in advance,

    Steve.

    Pirelli P-zero Rossos are dire I changed them after 4k miles to Eagle F1s. They are quieter grip miles better in both wet and dry and they have much better rim protection on them(my wife helped make my mind up to change them quicker after she curbed a wheel).
