Anywhere in SE1 I can go for replacement tyre (just had a puncture) that wont cost an arm and a leg?

Trying to avoid kwik-fit etc.

Depends on how much you want to spend. Personally, I venture just outside of SE1 down to Silwood Street (off of Rotherhithe New Road) in SE16. I'm not sure of the name or precise address but there is only one tyre outlet down there - it is about three quarters of the way down on the right-hand side. I've been there a few times over the years.

You can pick up very good part worn (fitted while you wait) tyres for upwards of 8. I had three very good part worns put on my car for about 30 a few months back. No connection with this place; just a satisfied customer.

I looked up the best quote on the Internet, printed it off and got Kwikfit to match it. The guys in there are quite nice, but it might depend on who's on that day.

There's Universal Tyres in Union Street too...not sure how competitive they are but no harm in asking I guess.

There is only one place - Mad House tyres!!! They do a puncture repair for about five quid and it takes less than ten minutes. Brilliant place and you get to support a local independent business. Mad.

I always used JetTyres in Hercules Road, they were quick and efficient and Michelins on a taxi were quite a reasonable price.
No idea how they compare price wise on a civilian's vehicle though.
Out of curiosity, what's wrong with Kwik Fit?
