Try Chessington Tyres (they're on Google). Top value in my experience.

That a very good price - don't know what you will pay for fitting. I use the same tyre and very pleased other than the price.

Could someone explain what it is about our cars that require such care and attention for fitting new tyres - ie why not just use the local tyre fitter ?

It's a good question. If you know and have faith in your local tyre fitting shop, you might as well use them. When I lived in London I got to know the guys at the local National Tyres outlet place quite well -- the car I had at the time possessed an even more voracious appetite for tyres than the 993 (or was that just the track days?). Anyway, the knew I was particular and didn't (appear to) mind my watching how they worked.

I think the main thing is that they often don't take enough care over not damaging or over-tightening alloy wheels, and the prices are generally pretty poor -- though I've found that most will dicker.
