Tyre/wheel retailers you would recommend

Postby Ric » Fri Nov 20, 2009 7:33 am

Post about a place you've purchased tyres or wheels, and which you'd recommend others to try.

I'll keep this first post updated with the list.

SA
  • Adelaide Tyre Power - Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Mile End. Good prices and service - Ask to speak to Troy (knows the most) [Hotwire]

VIC
  • Advance Tyres - Burnley/Richmond. Lowest prices, excellent service and attention to detail. [teK--]
  • MWT - Preston. Decent prices for Hankook and Kumho tyres. [tangcla]
  • Protek Tyres - Oakleigh. Very helpful, and good prices. [Ric]Closed :(

not a chance... they would know the front of the car from the back.
there have been a couple of instances in geelong where vehicle have left with wheel nuts finger tight. Think they got about 3-400 meters down the road b4 a wheel fell off. :lol:
