As someone that owns a garage, you have too understand they are taking all the risk fitting your tyres. They have to charge a reasonable amount, and GTR tyres are not easy to fit, I suspect it's worked out on a % of there labour rate. As someone has already stated, they are making zero money on supply of tyres, so I also suspect the price has increased to reflect that.

Independent tyre specialists will be cheaper, less overheads and it's there main Buisness.

£100 for wheel alignment and adjust, if there using a quality alignment system is actually very reasonable.

These prices are a lot less than Landrover charge to fit tyres and align my Range Rover.
