Just had our 25 lowered by jez at Dubtricks a thank you to him for the pain and torment he had to endure during the fitting process. Once fitted we needed to get the suspension setup correctly. unfortunately no one in Harrogate had the ability to check and reset the Camber on our van. that is until we gave the new Tyre and exhaust center a tinkle at Knaresborough, they use a John Bean Visualiner which gives a reading in minutes. ;D

We used the one at york in November. The car slid on some black ice and dinged a wheel on the kerb. North Eastern tyres have an internet suit for free use of laptops while your motor is being checked. Another thing I was impressed by, while drinking your free coffee you can see the motor on the ramp. They give you an easy to follow tracking guide explaining the alignment. Not used the Knaresborough one, but need the bay checking. Pleased they sorted your van then Orvil, answers my question that one will fit.

Oops guys.... beware North Eastern tyres discounts. I priced a 5 tyre change and wheel balancing with valves . They specifically asked if I had a discount card, which I have. Before giving them them the go I asked for a price for the same job at Knaresborough tyres. £18 cheaper !!!!!. So stuff north eastern tyres next time. Once bitten. Wonder how much it had been without the discount! . I collected the wheels from Knaresborough and let them in on my little quotation check. The guy laughed and says how good they are for buisness. Apparently some of their latest customers have done the same thing .
North Eastern Tyres sell the very tyres TO Knaresborough Tyres that Knaresborough Tyres sold you!!!!!!.......North Eastern Tyres are a Distributor as well as fitter.....when I used them I asked them to price match within 30 mile radius and they agreed...... so off I pop to Knaresborough Tyres who I have used for 25 years and they just couldn't match North Eastern..............so I guess its what happens on the day
I do recall Knaresborough Tyres charging me Environmental Disposal until I reminded them that the wheels had no tyres on in the first place, so I guess they are all as bad....any angle to make a buck
its simple to me......who's cheapest/quickest for same product gets my business........no sentiment
