I always trust my fitter, use Watling Tyres in Catford, until I discovered their branch in Swanley.

Both branches gave great service and good prices, although the Swanley branch were £5 cheaper on a set of Michelin R5’ and PR4’s when quizzed about it, dealer explained its the difference between inside London or not. Catford did offer to match Swanley though. I wasn’t surprised by this, living on the London border we notice it a lot on everything including supermarkets and other shops.

It’s the service that counts, I now go to them for break pads and chains too!
I’ve never been charged for the ‘soap test’.

If you do find a leak, make sure you put air in before riding it to the garage and hopefully they’ll be able to repair valve or just plug the hole.
If you’ve ridden on it flat, chances are the inside will be wrecked and you’ll need a new tyre anyway, good luck!
