    Recommendations for places in NE for supplying and fitting car tyres?

    Mate recommended tones tyres in plains farm? Looked on their Facebook page and it’s out the back of plains farm social club in a portacabin :confused:

    Are they any good?

    Someone did post on another tyre thread a few weeks ago recommending Tones.

    To be fair, it’s a tyre, a monkey could fit it.

    Tyrespot in Houghton has always been good for me. I ordered 4 tyres and got a services and MOT for nowt. Didn't even know it was an offer, so got a nice surprise when I got the bill.

    Always used Peacocks behind Steels club, with no complaints. Open till 7 tonight too. Taxis drivers use it a lot and, to me, that's a canny recommendation.

    They constantly bang on about how you should retorque your own wheels 24 hours after fitment.

    They must have zero confidence in their own ability.

    Nah, I was a technician for 10 years and still graft on cars regularly and I’d never dream of telling anyone to re-torque their own wheels after I’d had them off.

    It’s not all their fault as manufacturer guidelines often state you should read-check after x miles, even still, torque them correctly and you’ll never have bother. I never have or anyone I’ve ever worked with.

    I can only assume a fitter at their place has left them loose once before and they’ve been done so now cover themselves.

    Imagine an elderly person being given that advice.
