Just having I look about the market and I thought I'd ask everyone on here what sort of brands you are all using 

I don't need any just yet but it's better to have an idea if I just let ford dealer sort them or shop around ?  Cheers

Tyreshopper is the same kind of setup as black circles. Also Asda Tyres is same kind of set up.

It is worth looking at all three as some makes/models are cheaper at one, but one company is not cheaper for all.

Also depends on which ones have associated fitting centres near you. eg. Tyreshopper use a National tyres place about 1/2 mile from where I work. But last time I checked they did not have any fitting centre in my home town which is vastly larger town compared to where I work.

Good points, I never thought of the other as they have no fitting centres near me closest to me is still 25 miles, but i would have to travel that far for tyres anyway.

It can sometimes be worth giving them a try. Last time I needed a couple of tyres for the Mrs's car I found our local dealership (not part of a big chain) were actually pretty competitive and they went to some trouble in sourcing an exact match for the existing tyres, so I was quite happy with that.
