126Euro for 2 tyres to be changed is v expensive but thats probably 30 minutes work plus their facilities. I doubt they specifically employ low paid tyre fitters.

120Euro for all 4 to be changed with centrelocks is reasonable given their aren't many places that have the tools or the grease for those!

Trouble with any tyre fitter if you are supplying your own tyres....for £10 its a massive risk for little reward.

This is the same boy that carried out my service and tyre change. On the bright side; he is the only person on the planet with wrists small enough to dig out leaves from the front bumper without the use of the karscher vacuum cleaner. This saves at least 2 minutes Grin

Give him a few years and it will Doc I have a bad back. Car looks very smart even if the hired help is intent on covering it with oily hand prints
