    tyre fitting... how much?!?

    how much should i be charged for the fitting of 4 tyres... baring in mind i will be taking the alloys with old tyres on, ON the car, wanting them taken off, and put the tyres im providing on, also, wheel balancing and new valves should be fitted. then the wheels put back on the car.

    so how much should this cost? what do you pay?

    Thanks

    Ste

    if u want a good job including wheels fully balanced properly then expect to pay £40 +

    all depends where u go, when u go and also what u look like!!! lol

    For gods sake - watch them do it - especially the balancing and ensure they dont use a dreaded rattle gun to put em back on - tighten by hand then torque to 90 Nm - most crap places will gun them on and check the torq and it clicks off straight away as its already overtightened by god knows how much.
