Event tyres review: buying tyres online
Four recent car journeys cost me a lot of money ... A puncture, a parking ticket (for meter stuffing, even though I only parked there for 45 minutes. Grrr), a speeding ticket and another puncture.
Kwikfit first: bad review
The first puncture was repaired by Kwikfit. I drove down there at 12, which turned out not to be an appointment as I thought, just an indicative time. I would have to wait.
They quoted almost £200, but when I pointed out the price was cheaper on their website, they said I could have that price (about £30 off) if I bought a print out along.
Somehow, I didn't feel pleased about the discount, just relieved I hadn't been ripped off.
Event mobile tyres: good review
So when I somehow got another puncture, I bought a tyre online instead from Event tyres - which was delivered and fitted at my house.
A van turned up at the exact time Event tyres said it would, the cost was £50 less than at Kwikfit for an identical tyre, and it was all over and done with in minutes. Excellent. I'd definitely buy tyres online again.
Have you used them? What do you think?
