Canberra Tyre Shops Open on Sundays

By Emily Morris - 18 September 2017 35

Flat tyre? No spare? Need it fixed before Monday morning?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Whilst most tyre shops are closed on Sunday, there are a couple in the Canberra region open for business.

Our commenters have recommended a few local businesses that operate on weekends, so you can get back on the road as soon as possible. Sound good?

What Makes a Reliable Tyre Service?

Before we get into our list, let’s first discuss what makes a reliable tyre service. After all, you will probably be forking out a couple hundred dollars – you don’t want to risk handing over your car and cash to a dodgy tyre shop.

So, what exactly makes a tyre service worth your business? Here are a few key criteria:

  • Prompt service. Changing your tyres won’t take 10 minutes, but it shouldn’t take all day either. The best tyre shops always run on time.
  • Variety of products. The best tyre shops stock a variety of good quality products that will meet the unique needs of their clients.
  • Experienced and skilled. Driving is dangerous, and the wrong product and a poor tyre service can have dire consequences. The best tyre services are done by experts with years of experience.
  • Honesty. You cannot rely on people who aren’t being honest. The people who fit your tyres should be upfront with you about the product you need, without trying to up-sell you at every opportunity.
  • Friendly. At the end of the day, customer service is important. While it probably isn’t your favourite thing to do, getting your tyres changed should be pleasant enough.

Do you agree with these criteria? Did we miss something important? Let us know what you look for in a tyre shop in the comments below.

Tyre Shops in Canberra Open on Sunday

You’ve let us know which Canberra tyre shops are open on Sunday, and we’ve listened.

Next time you’re in a tyre emergency, check out our list of the best tyre shops open for business on the weekend.

Tyres on the Move

This isn’t your typical tyre shop – it’s a mobile tyre shop. Tyres on the Move come to you, anytime, anywhere in the Canberra region. Simply give them a call, and get your emergency flat tyre fixed.

Tyres on the Move is prompt and reliable. While a little pricier than your average tyre service, their team work quickly and thoroughly to get the job done outside of normal business hours.

One of our commenters, jennybel75, had a great experience with Tyres on the Move. “Similar thing happened to me a while ago and I couldn’t find a tyre place that was open so I used Tyres on the Move (0402 132 428),” she wrote. “A bit more expensive, but the guy was very good and turned up quite quickly.”

Bob Jane T-Marts Belconnen

Open 7 days a week, Bob Jane T-Marts is a chain tyre shop that is fast, friendly, and affordable. On Sundays, they are open for business from 9am until 1pm, so it’s best to come in early.

With a huge range of tyres, experienced staff, and high standards to uphold, you can rest assured your vehicle will be taken care of. According to locals, you can expect to be in and out within 40 minutes, and if you stick around to wait, the team might offer you a free coffee.

As a large franchise, Bob Jane T-Marts often runs discounts and promotions. It’s a good idea to keep an eye on this, so you can make the most of special offers.

North West Tyres and Mechanical (open Saturday only)

While this tyre shop isn’t open on Sunday, it does offer fast and reliable Saturday services with no booking required. It’s a good one to keep in mind, because many tyre shops are closed all weekend.

The selling point of North West Tyres and Mechanical is price. They guarantee the cheapest tyres in Canberra. With a huge range of imported European tyres, you’re bound to find a suitable set for your vehicle.

Another benefit of using North West Tyres and Mechanical is their fast service. They don’t mess around at this tyre shop. Even on Saturdays, you can expect to come in without a reservation, and leave within half an hour. If that isn’t convenience, we don’t know what is.

Commenter Danman has used North West Tyres and Mechanical in the past. Here’s what he had to say, “Northwest Tyres in Fyshwick- may not be close but I got 4x near new (90%tread) tires for the falco for $220.” Great deal.

Know Any Other Canberra Tyre Shops Open on Sunday?

Let us know in the comments below if you use a tyre shop that’s open on Sunday. If not, share your experience with any tyre shop in the Canberra region anyway.

We want to know the best place to get our tyres changed.

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.

Anyone know the name of this stuff?

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Good luck with your search for a tyre shop.

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.

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?

^ agreed. Or do different hours to the humble monday to friday, 9 to 5.. (Ok, i’ll give them some credit, they open on saturdays..)

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

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.
