slk needs new tyres

I think its time I change my slk tyres as I have completely ruined the tyres due to having a fast car and the temptations that come with it. can anyone please recommend a uk site that I can look for tyres due to working 24/7 so im not able to look at my local tyre supplier.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t already.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member will address your question.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’!
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Hi there. Are you new to this great forum? in which case a very warm welcome.

Try googling 'blackcircles' on t'interweb or failing that, there are companies that will come and fit at your gaff. Either way...google!

Enjoy your SLK.

Used all of the above companies in the past but have now moved on to 'Tyre Traders'. there prices are usually the cheapest either 'supply only' then take them locally to have them fitted or they also have a 'fitted mobile price' or local fitter.
I purchased 4 tyres only last month for my camper van..very good service and the cheapest by some margin.

I can recommend MyTyres: http://www.mytyres.co.uk
I recently purchased a pair of: Hankook Ventus Prime 2 K115 225/50 R16 92V Fully Fitted Summer tyres for the rear of my R170 they were reasonably priced and came complete with fitting, valves & balancing at a local depot.
