Which? has updated its excellent tyres guide giving invaluable information on when you need to replace your tyres to where you should buy them from.
The highly-respected consumer watchdog advises motorists that there are “three main ways of buying tyres: from a franchised dealer, from a ‘fast fit’ specialist tyre supplier or an online seller”.
Which? warns that customers can “pay a premium to buy through a main dealer, as they are often supplied by specialists”. It also says that although tyre specialists have a wide selection and are most convenient if you need a new tyre at short notice, “however some people can find the experience quite pressured (particularly if you’re in an emergency situation).
It adds that “online sellers have a very wide selection and prices should be low – but remember that you won’t be able to knock the price down further than what’s quoted and they’re not useful if you need a tyre at short notice”.
Which? also adds that “most online sellers will send you to a tyre specialist for fitting, while some will come out to your workplace or home, so they are convenient”.
At etyres we are delighted that we fall into the latter “convenient” bracket – our free mobile fitting service means we come to you to fit your tyres at your home or work, saving you time and hassle, as well as prices up to 40 cheaper than the leading high street tyre depots and main dealers.
