All car owners understand the importance of quality tyres – it’s a major safety concern, after all. Bald tyres have reduced grip, and can cause sliding, an inability to break effectively, and a higher risk of a flat tyre. That’s why it’s vital to change your car’s tyres on a regular basis.
After consulting your feedback and researching local tyre shops in Canberra, we’ve come up with the top five tyre shops in the region. These businesses have the expertise and equipment required to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy.
Let’s get started.
What makes a reliable tyre shop?
Not sure what to look for in your search for a reliable tyre shop? We’ve got you covered. We suggest keeping an eye out for the following traits.
- Quality products. When it comes to changing your tyres, look for a tyre shop that stocks quality products. Higher quality tyres will require changing less often, so will save you money in the long run while also keeping you safe on the road.
- Experienced staff. It’s vital that your new tyres are installed properly. Experienced staff at your local tyre shop should be able to help you select the right product for your vehicle, and then install it to a high standard.
- Well priced. Tyres are expensive, but they shouldn’t cost a small fortune. The best tyre shops in Canberra are competitively priced.
- Conveniently located. You probably don’t want to travel an hour out of your way just to have your tyres changed. Look for a tyre shop that’s close to your home or workplace.
