I believe going across the border to have work done (including fitting tyres) makes you liable to pay customs fees and VAT on the materials, and VAT on the work, without the option to claim back the foreign VAT because they've already been installed. Probably won't cost much, but declaring the work will cause a delay, whereas the risk of a fine may make the whole thing not worth doing.
Thats the situation from France but from Germany I always got VAT refunded on tyres & car repairs in full.
