Tyre Help
« on: February 23, 2018, 10:43:02 PM »
Has anyone had dealings with Tyreleader.co.uk I tried to order a new back tyre and Iíve ended up no tyre and at the moment £110 out of pocket .
My strong recommendation donít use this company whatever you do and pass the word out they are just hopeless at communication and canít sort out any problems.
Any suggestions on good tyre place preferably near Cardiff would be appreciated.

That seems unusual. I've used no-one but Tyreleader for all my tyres for the last 4 years and I've found them to be excellent.  :dunno

They despatch them from different locations and so if you order a pair it's not uncommon for one to arrive from France and the other from Germany.  :)

They've always arrived within the promised time as well. On one occasion I thought one was going to be late as I'd only received the one so I contacted them through their website. They got back to me very quickly and apologised and said that both tyres had been despatched. A half hour later the other tyre arrived.  :blush :blush

I thought that was it but the next day a new front turned up, then the following day another rear turned up... they'd despatched two more after I'd contacted them.

I waited for them to contact me to arrange collection of the two extra tyres but they never did, so I had two sets for the price of one.   :bgrin

From years of experience in dealing with them I haven't been able to fault them.

OMG. I did. Had to go to my visa to get my money back.
If a company has a problem, then I rate them on how well they deal with it. Tyre leader can give good service.....if there is no problem. Took me nearly three months to get my money back.
Basically, they sent the wrong tyre. Told me it was my fault. It wasnít. Checked, and rechecked emails. They sent the wrong one. They wouldnít collect it, or refund me. Thank god Iíd used visa. Got my money back eventually.

I now buy from the place I get them fitted. Costs a bit more, but I donít get the stress.

Stupid question but how do you know what the right type of tyre is for your bike ? I don't mean size I mean if you look up my bike a Sinnis terrain I know the size but what type of tire would I look for

Thanks guys mixed response will let you know how I get on really donít want to risk using them again though would rather pay a bit more and keep it local if I can.
Also if you look on Trustpilot there are a number of good and bad reports.

I always use Chris ''black round and sticky''.
I normally only pay around 10 or 15 pound more for supply and fitting than I can
 buy them online and he will come and fit them at your home or work.

His number is 07706 966033

Forgot to mention he is based in Cardiff.

It'll depend on what style of bike and the size will determine what choice you have,  for a 125 you don't need the stickiest or dual compound rubber. I'd look at what the Jap manufactures are using as OEM and go down that route.
