    OMG...discovered this damage




    on my front left tyre, so will certainly need new tyre. but I want a good tyre fitter to install it.
    any recommendation? apart from Kwit fit or alike...

    Protyre, maybe?

    many thanks,
    vincent

    you must have plenty of decent tyre fitters in bristol mate??

    most normal car garages have tyre machines these days?? if you've got the right kit its nice and easy to change a tyre..

    certainly not worth travelling from bristol to yeovil over!!

    Protyre are good but busy. They have always taken a lot more care over my car than other places.

    I have been using Ablefit recently who seem to be more competitive across the range of tyres. They have a branch in Longwell Green, and one on Bath Road, Brislington. Although for Wheel alignment, I prefer protyre as per Ian S's note.

    thanks everybody. Indeed, gave today a visit to Protyre, they seem good, they guy who assessed my tyre told me no need for a new tyre, it's superficial damage...
