Full Version: Silly Tyre Question?

After an independant garage had to savagely hack my alloy to pieces, I have bought a replacement wheel and have the tyre, but I need to get it fitted, silly question is - Do I have to fit a valve or is the valve fitted directly to the Alloy / Wheel?

Also Do I need to buy one of these and where can I get them from?

hi jeebowhite, just take your new alloy, and tyre to a tyre fitters, they will fit a new valve into the new alloy, and fit the tyre.
you may even want to balance it aswell, shouldnt cost more than a tenner.

So they would provide a valve as part of the cost then?

yes mate valves are about a quid, fit and balance new tyre shouldnt cost no more than a tenner. just ask them the price, any more than that walk away to another tyre fitters!

exactly as above jeebo, i always supply my own tyres - my local fitter does them for 7.50 each including a new valve, balancing and disposal

Fantastic! Thanks guys!

I was going to try and play nicely with my tyre and rim, but it seems more hassle than a tenners worth! - learn something new every day!
