Some time ago we added tyres to our growing list of services on offer. We have a large range available, Continental, Maxxis, Goodyear, Pirelli, Nankang and Hankook to name a few. Recently we managed to get YOKOHAMA on board. We had a request for some road legal track style tyres for the car pictured. Great outcome as we have now added Yokohama to our available tyre brands.
Something we’ve talked about for sometime now is to be doing our own tyres onsite. Machines, stock, consumables, and training all happened last week…. The reasons we’ve held back has been space, equipment and set up. However recent changes have created more room in the workshop, as well as 2 new junior techs started with us have both come from tyre shops, and have tyre fitting and balancing experience. Being members of 2 of NZ’s largest co-ops also gives us great buying power for a large range of wheels and tyres.
So…… we have done it with our first retail sales done in oct 2021. Ahead of schedule as we wanted to be up and running for November. We do have many brands to choose from with more in the pipeline, however the market we are in we think of Pirelli is a great fit.
Our aim is to provide better turn around timeframes with our tyres, as relying on outwork in general can lead to disappointment. Local supply will mean same day delivery in most cases and in time we will build our onsite stock.
Tyres and alignments.. We are doing more and more tyres through preferred suppliers and are getting great rates and service. Saves time when we can arrange while your cars in for its WOF or service…
