Rapid / Emergency tyre change in ZH

Good morning all,


I just noticed that one of the tyres on my Opel is damaged, and as luck would have it I'm due to make a long journey this weekend that can't really be postponed. My local garage has no availability until the 18th of June, so I'm now trying to find a new place. I've called a few garages but no luck. Does anyone have any reccomendation for a garage that could change my tyres before Friday?



Thanks in advance!



MrBurnley

Best would be to go to your normal garage where you do your servicing and repairs. Explain your urgency and they might do it for you.

One reason I give a pack of beer at Christmas to my local garage guys. Always available whenever I need something done quickly

These guys look like a big company, might be worth a try https://pneufrank.ch/english/ it says they welcome customers without bookings.

These guys changed a punctured tyre for me no appointment, even found the same tyre type, all within 45 minutes. Since then I've been back to have a set of tyres fitted to rims, again no appointment.

They are a bit far out, but did a great job. Highly recommended.
