Good plan. I find Asda Tyres (yep the supermarket!) offer the lowest price on fitting tyres:

https://m.asdatyres.co.uk

I don’t do it with them but I take their price and ask my local MINI dealer to match which they are happy to do.

Oh good idea I'm surprised they match it

What tyres do you go for? As MINI won't have all the brands in stock ?

The Asda website will show all the tyres designed for BMWs and itís these tyres they readily stock (Continental, Dunlop, GoodYear, Hankook, Pirelli). On one occasion I bought by own brand new set of Goodyears off eBay and Cotswold MINI Cheltenham were happy to fit that set.

But Cotswold are the best dealer in the country so I'm not surprised. I don't think local ones to me would do that, if they do it would be £££

Still not as tough as a Northern Ireland MOT.
