They do what they say.

I wanted two Continental Sport Contact 2 205/45 R17 Z but it turned out that this was a discontinued tyre and the equivalent Continental Sport Contact 3 205/45 R17 does not have such a high speed rating so the Kwik Fit offering, although £27.02 less, was not right for the vehicle specification. Blackcircles were still offering the discontinued tyre at a total price of £275.02 for the two so that solved my problem.

The fitting centre at First Class Tyres & Autocare Limited in Uppingham, Rutland was excellent and opened specially up on the Christmas Saturday just to fit my tyres.

Kwik Fit

Your on line selector produced the wrong speed rating so tyres not fitted

I wanted the same tyre as currently fitted to the vheicle (Continental). This is a discontinued tyre. I used your website to select the replacement tyre of the same brand by inputting vehcile manufacturer, model and engine size. This was double checked by me also entering the vehcile registration number and this produced the same answer.

As a third check I went onto the Continental website and it showed the original tyre is discontinued and gave the replacement tyre as the one I ordered.

Your engineer arrived and told my wife the speed rating was too low.

As a result no tyres were fitted and the order has been cancelled. Blackcircles still supply the discontinued tyre with the correct speed rating.
