Any tyre fitter recommendations that won't mark the alloys in the Glasgow area?

I asked this a few years ago about getting a puncture repaired but never had any reply.

Just wondering if anyone can recommend any tyre fitters in or around Glasgow that take pride in their work and won't just take a crowbar to the alloy?

Last couple of tyres I've had changed, the alloy got quite badly marked when they were changing it.

There must be someone out there that takes a pride in their work?

Cheers.

I've used Skidz in Falkirk for a number of tyre swaps and one puncture repair over the last four years or so, with no problems.
The latest visit was a couple of weeks ago when I got them to fit four new tyres on my 19" rims.
I first decided to give them a try because they sold wheel and tyre packages including some rather large and expensive rims for Range Rovers etc. and guessed that they were both competent and careful as a result.

Hope this helps.

Just had a look on their website Brian and didn't see anything about tyres changes. I'm assuming that they do of course and are happy for you to supply your own tyres?

I used to use Drivers who were last at St. Georges Cross but they closed down a few years ago, unfortunately.

Don't know where I'd go now so watching this Thread with interest.

Why do alloys get damaged, is it lack of care, inexperience or cheap machinery.

Just give them a call Rojer. I only found out they do it because I was in a while back getting a full wheel refurbishment on an old car of mines and asked the question. No issue taking your own tyres in for change, that's what I did.

Pretty sure they have a new model tyre changing machine which reduces the risk of any damage to the alloy also

Autotec Port Glasgow.

I took in 4 winter tyres already fitted to old kia wheels. Winter tyres taken off old kia wheels. Car jacked up, lexus wheels removed, summer tyres removed, winter tyres fitted to lexus wheels, lexus wheels fitted. Kia wheels returned (to be sold), summer tyres returned (to be used in summer).

£25.

They also do free wheel alignment checks with their hunter system. Seemed like good guys and very good price. Open Saturdays until 6pm and I think they're open Sundays too.
