tyre fitters in northamptonshire

hi i need some new tyres and don't want to go to kwikfit, national tyres etc after all the stories about them. thing is i really don't know where else there is
i live in wellingborough northamptonshire, where do people in this area take their alfas for new tyres ? has anyone used orbit tyres ?
i also want someone who uses wheel weights on the inside of the rim rather than the ugly things they fit on to the outside edge of the rim
thanks

have heard stories about some fitters being careless and damaging the underside of cars or the actual alloys. i also don't like the wheel weights they use which fit on the outside of the alloy

Hi,
Pop round to Andy's tyres at finedon.
I had my 156 fitted out with a full set there and he offers a really professional service and competitive prices.
