Recently had two 'new' tyres put on my car prior to MOT (previous ones are very low) from Direct Tyres. Put the car in for MOT, and then put it away in the garage.
Went up to give it a run today, and found both tyres are flat (rear ones are fine). Assume they haven't either been sealed, or the valve is leaking (or the tyre was crap).
I jack the car up to take them off to return (still have receipt), and find they haven't given me the locking nut 'key' back. The nuts have also been put on with an airgun (including the locking nut), and are now so tight I can't even get them off with a breaker bar.
I thought I'd mention this as only last week after buying another two tyres for a different car off them, a couple of weeks later, one did this:
The wheel has bulged to the extent the whole tyre is warped. Removing the tyre has also revealed they put a 155/45 on one side, and a 145/45 on the other.
I never complain about places like this on a forum - but with tyres, you expect some competence. They put a tyre on with the banding gone, and then put a completely different size tyre on the other side.
I've never had a problem with Kwik Fit - they're pricey and get some stick, but at least the tyres hold air!
Also, if you take a wheel brace next time you get a tyre from this place and then ask THEM if they can remove the nuts with it that they've just overtorqued up.
