Hi Guys,

We are 4x4Tyres.co.uk

I personally drive a 94' Defender 90.

Use it for mainly green lanes and the occasional pay and play day!

We are hoping to get a lot more involved with forums and Q&As

thanks for your time.

Trust you Ged (but we were probably all thinking it!)

Seriously though, might be worth checking with Admin to see if that is a possibility as I know some people have fallen foul of advertising on here without permission and stuff and we would hate to see someone get bounced for breaking a rule unintentionally.

Sorry Tim - welcome again!

We're not here to advertise this is soley a help and advice account!

we have already messaged admin about official adverts in the header and footers along with a "topic thread" we are waiting to hear back.

however,

as stated this is a help and advice account Smile

as for discounts it may be something to consider in the future but due to our price match schemes it is very difficult to ad further discount unless a package bundle or large quantity is purchased

I happily stand corrected and really glad to have you onboard...

...so please accept my apology for urging caution as there have been a few people/organisations who have flaunted the rules and I didn't want to see a genuine offer fall foul.

Looking forward to seeing you around in here - especially as you are just along the road from my in-laws and where our house is although we don't actually live in it at the mo... Cool

No problem at all!

we have experienced similar reactions from a few other forums that we have recently joined and some have reacted in a much less positive way.

but please, use us to your advantage and when we hear from the admin side of things in terms of moving forward we are looking to bring you guys exciting options and first dibs on new products! Smile

It's nice to be greeted so warmly from you guys!

Thanks,

Tim

Tyre fitting and balancing is normally about 15 a corner so that's 10 cheaper Twisted Evil

they probably get the money you didn't pay back by nicking your wheels after they fitted the tyres..... Laughing Laughing








seriously though; I don't pay to fit tyres as my mate has a machine. as a total amateur it takes me around 5min a wheel once car is on the ramp. That would be 15 every 5min at where you go xpajun, so 180 per hour! seems a bit steep....

Next time time it... I do a lot of things that seem to take no time at all - then I have to time it so I can price it - it always takes longer than you think Wink

I feel as though i've missed something here!

we haven't introduced a national fitting set-up as of yet the only fitting we offer is at our main warehouse in Statford-upon-Avon

Although, in saying this, we will be introducing a national fitting program very soon however prices again for each location will be different as it will be down the discretion of the garages to charge what they want we will just help with negotiations to hopefully offer you a better price than if you were to walk in.

Thanks

Tim

No this isn't us

We have an Orange logo... if in-doubt our website name is my username.

I am unsure as to who the sponsored logo is.

Thanks,

Tim

We are not advertising the company by choice!

it appears it is giving us a bad name.

I understand where the confusion lies, we are still waiting to hear back from Admin about advertisements also we have called a few times.

but when we introduce our national tyre scheme we will NOT be over-charging as we will be offering a service rather than be benefiting from a service.

Thanks,

Tim = Exclamation

i will agree on that.

dunno about everyone else, but i use C______L as my benchmark. i look for cheap but easy. i can normally get cheaper, but invariably the hassle goes up.

if you can equal their prices but keep the same ease of use i would happily use you


Wink

it was also unusual to see a MOD logo on your website. care to elaborate?

We like to think we offer a more efficient service than C____L with an open help line 8.30am-5.30pm

We do also carry a price match promise where we will match or better the price where we are able too.

similarly we use a competitor monitor which looks at all of the competitor brands and our system will match or where it can better any products advertised.

Thanks

Are you telling me Tim that you have never heard of 4Site 4x4 before? Better known as Southam Tyres.

Of course we know of Southam Tyres however what i am saying is we do not know who posted the advertisement on our thread and better yet... we have no affiliation to them in respect of the advertisement present.

Thanks,

Tim
