Tyre repairs in Melbourne and Victoria
Tyre repair or tyre replacement? You may be wondering what your best, and most economical, option is.
Often, tyres get replaced when they can be repaired. But, if you're not a tyre expert, it's hard to know what's for the best.
We recommend visiting a credible tyre supplier and repairer - like us - for honest advice. You can visit us at one of our two Melbourne locations or call us for some advice. We always do the best by our customers and point them in the right direction.
Why buy new tyres when you can repair your current ones?
While it's best to seek expert advice when you're unsure, here are some tips on how to decide whether it's best to buy new tyres or if you can repair your current ones.
Look out for the following signs which may indicate it's time for a replacement or a repair:
The first thing you should do, and we recommend doing this often, is look at your tyre tread. There's no point getting a tyre repaired if it's tread is very worn as if you don't need to replace them right now, you will need to soon. So, it may be better to buy new tyres now to save money in the long run.

If your tyres are worn unevenly, then it may be time to consider a replacement. A tyre expert can tell you if they are too far gone or if you just need to get a wheel alignment.
If unsure, always consult an expert as driving on damaged or worn tyres can be very dangerous!
Bulges and cracks
Big bulges, cracks and fissures can be another indicator that you need to replace the tyre. Again, seek advice if you're unsure.
Depending on the severity of the puncture, you may be able to get your tyre repaired. However, if your tyre has been punctured by a large object, the damage may be too great to repair. Again, this is where the help of a professional may be required.

A flat tyre may be due to a puncture, or low air pressure. For advice on punctures, please see the above paragraph. If your tyre is flat due to tyre pressure, simply head to your nearest petrol station (if it's safe to do so, if your tyre is too flat, replace with your spare tyre first). Read your car manual to know what number to fill your tyre too - make sure you don't under or overinflate your tyres!
