    Kwik-fit are cheapest for tyres!

    Time has come for 4 new boots for one of my motors, the size is 205/55/16 V with a load index of 91, so far I have looked at Nationwide, kwik-fit, blackcircles, etyres, costco and even phoned up my local independent and no one can beat the online kwik-fit price 336.12.

    Anyone else found kwik-fit to be cheaper, as lots of forums call kwik-fit rip-off merchants

    The key for buying tyres is shopping around. Kwik-fit are maybe cheap this time round because they have it in stock? Most people just get quotes of blackcirles, then call the tyre place up and tell them to beat the quote, so they don't have to go through blackcircles and pay the commisions.

    camskill was 290 delivered, but then there is the hassle of getting someone to fit them, and most garages charge around 10 per corner for fitting, valve, balance & disposal of the old tyre.

    The kwik-fit price was there on-line price, so not sure if they have the tyres in stock.

    I did try a local indy which I have used before but they said they would not beat that price!

    Kwik ****?? They just quoted me 80 more for a pair of Toyo Proxes than anywhere else. And that's not to mention the incident with my mates wife a few years back when they told her the car was dangerous and needed new discs/pads/shoes/cylinders. She was in tears and I ducked down there and got a load of crap from them about the spongy pedal. I bled the brakes myself and they were fine afterwards, only thing further I did was s fluid swap about a year later for her
