Blackcircles

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Has anyone ever used www.blackcircles.com for getting new tyres? If so, was it good value / service?

    Cheers.
     
  2. A friend used them about a year ago and he was content, IIRC.

  3. Yeah, I used them they were quite good, reasonable price and quick service. When I went to the garage the day after to have them fitted, the guy at the garage said if I went direct, he'd knock 10% extra off the black circle price :)
     
  4. I use them most of the time.

    They have a network of garages that do the fitting and they will drop them if they keep getting bad reviews.
     
  5. box-of-frogs, do you live anywhere in the South (Hants, Wilts)?

    If so, try this place; Micheldelver Tyre just outside Basingstoke. They are the cheapest place around. Even cheaper than mail order.

    As an example;

    Pirelli P Zero Scorpion 265/45/20 (fitted, valve and balancing inc VAT)

    Black Circles - £273.75
    Micheldelver Tyre - £174.50
     
  6. Would second the recommendation for Micheldever tyres. They are excellent, both in terms of service and price.

  7. If you live/work within reach of Hants/Berks Wilts area try Headley Tyres on the A339 between Newbury and Basingstoke.The guy in there has never needed to spend anything on advertising,relying on word-of-mouth.They're nearly always busy,but may be worth a try.....
     
  8. Live oop north (fortunately! :wink: ) Cheers for answers. Think i'll give them a go.
     
  9. This should suffice then;

  11. I have used them to get a price. I then went to my local guy. He has always offered a better price.
     
  12. If you are anywhere hull then take a trip up to Driffield to bells cycles. Much cheaper than the hull dealers
