How many of you guys use BlackCircles for your tyres?? There is a fitting shop 5 mins from me. I need some new tyres ASAP for the front, and am thinking of the Bridgstone S03's for the job. BlackCircles offer a 7% discount with a code I got.

I really need a review by you guys before I go out and pass on over £260 via the net for some tyres.

Check the prices with your local shops!

Last time I bought tyres online from mytyres, it would have been cheaper to go to my local garage and them to supply them.

Online doesn't always mean cheaper...

i know what you mean, a couple of times they were dearer, but last time i bought from them my mate who used to run a tyre place couldnt get the same tyres himself cheaper, he ordered some and fitted them, and did mine for free for giving him the site address, but as said not always cheaper

Haven't used them personally but car mechanics magazine have used and recommend them, I would say if the price is right go for it.

TYRESITE are selling those Bridgestone tyre's
at £127.83 inc vat each.
So getting them fitted at Blackcircles is a good
deal,for the small amounyt of extra cash.

A word of warning though if you are fitting the
Bridgestone SOP3,in 225/40/18,the load index
is rated at only 88,as far as i am aware the load
index rating for the MK3 needs to be over 90.

I used Blackcircles and the company was OK but the fitting place I used was very unprofessional and scraped one of the two wheels. I'd use Blackcircles again but I'd check out the fitting places locally first.

I've used them 3 times with the same fitting centre and was happy with the service.

The only problem I had was my last visit when they had a pair of Dunlop Sport 3000s in for another car that morning and fitted them to mine, instead of the Sport 01s I ordered.

Changed over quickly and I was out of there.

Didn't expect it, but asked I for the wheels to be rotated front to back and to use stick-on weights and they just did it.
