Does anyone know of a reasonable tyre fitting place in the Berkshire area where they ensure that they don't damage your alloys when changing the tyres. On my Last 5 series, Kwik Fit always seemed damaged my wheels getting the tyres on an off.

I have the 20 inch smoked volans on my car which are 285.20.30 profile rears and 255.20.35 profile on the fronts. The current tyres are the Dunlop Sport max.

Jaguar Slough quoted me £1,280 inc VAT for the four and Kwik Fit have quoted £1,080 inc VAT or the 4. Clearly I would like to pay £200 less but may need to spend the difference on getting the wheels refurbished afterwards!!!. So far my alloys are un-blemished!!!! With Jaguar doing the tyres I feel that there would be some come back if they were to damage the alloys in the process.

Incidentally do all Jag dealers charge the same price for tyres or would these vary?

Thanks

Get Event Tyres to do them at a place of your choosing - good prices and excellent fitters - the guys who've done my wheels take a lot of care over them - and they ask you to sign a form saying they've done no damage afterwards, too.

Thanks guys. I have emailed Event Tyres to get a price and to see what tyres they have available. I like the idea that they get you to sign to confirm that they haven't damaged your wheels.

Yes, the ones I got early last year only had a 1000 miles on them though, made sure I got the best ones after routing about in their warehouse through all the 20" J fitment tyres, even bought a spare set and keep them in the garage...all Dunlop J fitment,saved an absolute arm and a leg!

Thanks anyway.
