Re: 156 tyre blow out @ 110 - cost for tyre fitting.
If it includes balancing its not too bad a price...I'd aim for £10 but bear in mind that from starting the job to finishing it will probably take 10 - 15 minutes per wheel, and that with overheads - tyre changing machine at £800 or so, balancer at £1500, tools, premises, liability insurance etc you can easily get to £40 an hour labour rate....before anyone makes a profit!
As Wrinx says if the tyre fitter is losing the profit margin on the tyre sale he isn't going to prune the price on the fitting......would you?
