Responsible and cheap garages for changing of car tyres near ZH

Does anyone know a responsible and cheap garage for changing of car tyres near Zurich? (note: I have already the tyres, just want to change the summer tyres to winter tyres)

Define "responsible"?
Define "cheap"?

Surely your most local tyre place will both swap your tyres and then store them (as per your other post) for a reasonable amount.

Re: Responsible and cheap garages for changing of car tyres near ZH

Instead of opening a new thread , Iíll dig this one up.

I just got a car for the first time and need to change from summer to the winter tyres soon. Does anyone now whatís the usual price of doing that in a Swiss garage? I asked around and was asked if I want to change just the tyre or the whole wheel - and as I have the rims it was the latter. Plus balancing should be done I guess by default but I was given an extra cost for that. In total that was 72 CHF + 15 CHF. Does that sound as a usual price?

Also, as Iím in Basel and close to France and Germany, does anyone have experience with going across the broder to do that and how much does it costs there?

I changed for the winter tires last week and just got the invoice by post. It says 89.5 CHF including VAT. But, it includes 6 months storage of the tires there, so I don't have to transport tires to mounting place and they don't fill up the minuscule cellar I have. And it's a stealership.....errrr, branded car dealership.

Re: Responsible and cheap garages for changing of car tyres near ZH

Price will depend heavily on the size of the wheels an if they're aluminium or steel. Bigger and alu are more expensive than smaller and steel.

Reifendirekt has partnering garages that give prices, and you can easily google and call up a couple of places to know what to expect.

Between Chf 100-120.-- depending on size, steel/alloy rims, SUV or saloon type car.


I paid Chf 40.-- for 2 tyres on a Polo and Chf 96.-- for a Tesla 3 including storage.

Sounds about right. Just about to book our changeover for beginning November with Pneu Egger and theirs is 27 per tyre including balancing.
