How do I use your site?
Using the site is simple. Just enter your vehicle registration or the tyre size you are looking for. Then, choose from the list of tyres that are shown on the page. Next, choose a fitting option (branch or mobile fitting) and a date for the fitting. Finally, select to pay via PayPal or using a credit/debit card. Your chosen tyres will be waiting for you or delivered to you, with nothing more to pay.
I’ve entered my vehicle registration number and the tyre size shown is not the one fitted to my vehicle?
Our tyre size data are provided by Experian. Experian receives your vehicle registration data from the DVLA and matches this with tyre size data from the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders). The SMMT database lists those tyres that they believe were fitted to your vehicle as original equipment.
On occasion, we discover that a dealer or a previous owner have upgraded the wheels/tyres before selling them on. For this reason, we suggest double-checking the actual tyre size fitted to the vehicle before ordering.
I’ve entered my vehicle registration number and my car doesn’t come up?
First, double-check that the vehicle registration entered was correct. Be aware that light commercial vehicles will not show up in the searches at present.
A vanity number plate can take a few weeks for the DVLA records to be updated, so it may not show right away.
Alternatively, you can still search by tyre size to view a complete list of prices for available tyres.
The information provided for my vehicle is incorrect
The information shown is provided by the DVLA. Contact them directly through their website at www.dvla.gov.uk to have your vehicle information corrected as soon as possible.
Alternatively, simply enter your tyre size for a list of tyre prices.
I’ve ordered the wrong tyre size by mistake what do I do?
We advise that you check the correct tyre size for your vehicle before ordering. It is your responsibility to verify that the tyre sizes ordered were correct. If you find that you have ordered the wrong tyre sizes, please call customer services on 0800 731 0133.
Where are the tyres delivered?
The tyres ordered will be delivered to your selected fitting location ready to be fitted on the booking date specified. The fitting centre will remove the existing tyres to be changed and dispose of them safely for you. The centre will fit new tyres, including a new valve for each tyre fitted, and use a wheel balancing machine to ensure the balancing is correct. This is all included in the price paid when the order has been placed and finalised.
Are Tyre Shopper prices fully fitted?
All our tyres are fully fitted and include a new valve, computerised wheel balancing, and an environmental casing disposal charge.
When choosing a fitting centre, the site doesn’t recognise my Postcode?
Sometimes a full postcode, i.e. WN6 0XU, is not recognised. Try entering the first part of the postcode, i.e. WN6 4 or WN6. The postcode is only used to help narrow down the nearest fitting centre for you and to provide a map and a set of directions..
