Tyre Shop Services:
Wheel Alignment – Fix steering problems and uneven tyre wear
Every car should have a wheel alignment when their car is in for a service as it ensures the maximum tyre wear. Signs that you require a wheel alignment can be if your car is pulling to one side or your steering wheel is vibrating. This can happen over time from daily driving incidents such as scraping the kerb, extreme bumps such as speed humps, pot holes etc.
Tyre Rotation – Even wear and longer tyre wear
Tyre rotation is crucial to ensure longevity of your tyres. All vehicles have varying wear rates, however regardless of what vehicle you drive one of the best techniques to ensure longer tyre wear is by rotating them regularly. As a guide they should be rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 km even if there is no sign of wear.
Tyre Balancing – Less Vibration and reduced tyre wear
Tyres should be balanced at time of purchase of new tyres however sometimes tyres require a rebalance over time. If you feel steering wheel vibration when you are driving please contact one of our Wheel Technicians straight away so we can diagnose the issue for you as it can effect the safety of your vehicle.
Tyre Puncture Repair
It is crucial to know when to repair or replace your tyre. Tyres that get a puncture and are run even over a short distance can often damage the tyres beyond repair. Most punctures, nail holes or cuts up to 5mm can be repaired by one of our qualified Tyre Technicians. To ensure your tyres (including your spare) meet the Australian Roadworthy Standards, it is very important that all repairs are carried out by one of our Tyre Fitters. If any problems ever occur with your tyres please head to one of our Tyre Shops for expert advice & service.

All batteries are not created equal. To get the most out of your battery in Melbourne’s climate, your car battery must be maintained by periodically adding water. Even so-called “maintenance free” batteries have vents to allow water loss. This is why we recommend that you get your car battery maintained by one of our skilled Battery Technicians to ensure you get even longer life!
