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.
Weekly NewsletterEvery Thursday afternoon, we package up the most-read and trending RiotACT stories of the past seven days and deliver straight to your inbox..
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.

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.
