Default Tyres - ride in, ride out in Bristol area?

So the Pirelli Diablos that came on the bike are now squaring off a bit. I've been looking to change them for a while as I don't really like them but only now can I justify some new rubber.
Anyone got a recommendations for a good ride in, ride out tyre fitting service in the Bristol area?

Cheers, Dan.

It been some years since I was down there but I used Protyre in Lawrence Hill for ride in ride out fitting.

Yeah I heard they offered a riro service. Don't know anyone who's actually used them for it though. Were they ok when you used them (long ago as it was)?

I used them a few years ago for riro & would use them again. Had a pair of tyres fitted there last year but that was to loose wheels.

My dad has to use them for the Rocket III as theyre ramps are the only ones about that will cope with the weight of the bike!! Ive heard good things from a lot of people!

I personally use http://www.facebook.com/ClevedonMotorcycles?fref=ts
Theyre not strictly ride in/ride out but theyre pretty accomodating and a really good buch of guys!!

They were fine with me. Used them regularly over a few years. But for me it was some time ago now as I do all mine as loose wheels now with a place in Swindon.

Cool. I'll ring them for a price, along with Jhs racing who offer riro as well.
Any other suggestions welcome.

Well the guy I spoke to at Protyre was very helpful, couldn't fault the service over the phone.
Jhs racing turned out to be cheaper though. They have a good deal on dunlops at the moment and offered me the roadsmart 2's (were on my short list) for 269 fully fitted, balanced etc with a 25 Tesco fuel voucher thrown in on top. So the pair will stand me in at 244 all inc on a ride in ride out basis. Thats cheaper than I could get PR2's or Avon storm 2 ultras. Protyre wanted 294 for the dunlops so had to go with Jhs for 50 less.

Oh and as a side note, don't bother ringing fowlers unless you have money to burn. PR3's there were 380!

+1 for Protyre, I don't use them now because I live in Wiltshire now. Not sure if I ever used ride in ride out, I normally just the wheels in when I get new tyres. But while I was in Bristol Protyre were my only port of call for tyres

I saw your old thread about Jhs stretchie, so I'll be checking my calliper bolts before I set off for home.
Tbh I'd have happily gone with Protyre but 50 more expensive is too much to ignore.
