What people are saying about us...

  • Staff were exceptional. I have never been a customer before, but I have called and enquired by phone about a number of things and the advise has always been surprising and the return calls as well sometimes unexpected and informative with good recommendations. I decided to use F1 Autocentres this time as my car was new and this was the first opportunity I had for needing new tyres.

  • Although a Morgan car with wire wheels is difficult to fit, the tyres were sourced and the young man who fitted them did an excellent job taking great care - especially as the centre lock nuts were difficult to remove. Excellent value.

  • Excellent & polite service. Will be the first website that I look if needing new tyres.
