Kwik-fit fitting question

Are Kwik-Fit generally willing to fit tyres that you have bought elsewhere or will they only fit ones purchased through them?

I have some new Scorpion ATRs to fit with short notice....

Try a local tyre depot rather than a big name. The lads in my local tyre bay will fit anything, in their lunch break, if you offer cash and don't want a receipt. Wink

My local Kwik-fit wont fit anything they haven't supplied themselves. I get much better service for both new and fitting my one from local independent (John Woods in Hereford)

My local Kwik-fit will fit and balance tyres for £5 cash and brake discs/pads for cash.

Only thing they can't do cash is tracking as the vehicle reg is logged.

Trying to find a place that will fit customer supplied parts is becoming more and more difficult, due to insurance/liability issues

As daft as it may sound I have got my local dealer to swap wheels, tyres (that ive supplied), balance, track the lot and at my usual discounted rate so worth a try. Most of them have tyre bays nowadays although it was a year or so since they changed my tyres last, at mot time. I had them delivered directly to the dealership.

My local kwikfit will fit new tyres with labels that I supply my self. I may be lucky with my local branch but they do a good job for me with my tyres and tracking and they always have new up to date kit that get calibrated regularly. I always ask for the same guy who does the tracking and have him trained up to do it how I want it doing so everybody’s happy.

Kwick fit will fit anything you pay them to fit. Thumbs Up

They fitted my alloys on the D5 for £20 cash, 4 of them done it, early in the morning, with a cafe next door. Something tells me it didn’t go through the books.
