Is There a Tyre Shop Open Sundays?

By rhino - 24 August 2008 35

Hey all

I have 2 flat tyres and it looks like all of the tyre shops are closed for the day today and are closed tomorrow on sundays.

Does anyone know of a tyre place open sundays? Or what my best bet would be?

I have to work tomorrow night :S

What’s Your opinion?

Similar thing happened to me a while ago and I couldn’t find a type place that was open so I used Tyres on the Move (0402 132 428). A bit more expensive, but the guy was very good and turned up quite quickly.

These “tradies hours” businesses can be frustrating when you work full time.

I don’t know of a single tyre shop that is not open Saturdays – mostly mornings, but at least some are all day. The only reason people would require a tyre shop to be open on a Sunday is for a flat … if that’s the case, where’s your spare? Two flats to me shows either really bad luck, or poor planning. Get your tyres checked regularly.

You will also find that most open around 7am, and close about 6pm.

So “tradies” shouldn’t be entitled to the same non-working as hours as you? Business hours exist for a reason.

As a small business owner it amazes me the number of people who call at 9 or 10pm (or even later) expecting you to be sitting by the phone waiting for their call. Emergency calls I can deal with, but people calling for a quote?

Some of the auto shops have some ‘green goopy stuff’ that is liquid and you put it into your flat tyre then blow it up. If the hole is not too big then it is able to put a thin rubber lining on the inside of your tyre and seal the hole. We have used that for slow leaks and its been great. It also seals new holes, we have got a nail in our tyre, after pulling it out and driving to the end of the street the hole had been sealed by the goop. Sorry I can’t remember the name of the product.

Make sure you don’t get the foam stuff that fills the air space, it creates heat and can cause major damage to your wheel and tyre.

Maybe they have one of these new cars with the ‘space saver’ spare tyre. They are only good for short distances and have a lower speed rating than normal. It could really be a problem if you have a bit of a distance to get to work.

Good luck with your search for a tyre shop.

If you are an NRMA member call them, whilst they won’t fix your problem they may be able to advise who is open or who is prepared to do an after-hours call out.

So why should I have to work different hours to you?? If you need tyres or work done on your car you can drop it off at 8am and we will drive you to work.

I have a family, and I work 6 days a week, why should we open later at night or on sundays just in case you get a flat tyre??

I forgot to add that I have already extended my saturday hours in response to customers who couldn’t find a tyre place open after noon on saturday. We now open until 3pm saturday to make your life even easier.

The space savers are fine for a good distance, provide you stick under 80km/hr and drive sensibly. They would at least get you to work and back (assuming you both live and work in the Canberra region) and then in to the tyre shop the next day, with plenty of wear to spare.
