Your family’s safety demands the best when it comes to selecting car tyres for your vehicle. Auto Super Shoppe Silverdale mechanics are experts in selecting the right tyres, and we apply that expertise to guarantee optimal tyre safety. We provide a full selection of tyres to match your individual driving habits, making it easy to do the very best for your family when your tyres have worn out.

Tread and tyre pressure are the two critical factors to tyre safety. Tyre tread will help your vehicle to grip the road surface when braking and cornering.

Tyre pressure is determined by the level of tyre inflation. Driving on under-inflated tyres will use more fuel, while driving on over-inflated tyres can affect vehicle handling and overall wear.

Did you know; legally, treads must be at least 1.5mm deep across three quarters of the tread pattern around the entire tyre? However, if you have tread depth indicators in the principal grooves then you must have at least 1.5mm tread depth in these areas.

Tyres are a routine check with all our vehicle service options.

Tyre wear can have a significant impact on whether your vehicle can be warranted. We will always advise you when it’s time to replace your current set of tyres before they become a liability to the safety of your car.

Wheel Alignments

Wheel Alignments are important to the handling of your car; they also improve fuel economy and extend your tyre life.

What We Do:

We adjust all four wheels so they are parallel to each other. This is done using the latest laser technology which produces a sensor zone around the vehicle and highlights any steering or suspension faults. The results include:

  • Improved Driver Safety

  • Improved Handling

  • Increased Fuel Efficiency

  • Extended Suspension Life

  • Minimized Tyre Wear

  • Improved Steering.

Why We Do It:

Some common problems encountered when your wheels are out of alignment include:

STEERING:

  • Wheel is difficult to turn

  • Pulls to the left or right

  • Vibrates

TYRE WEAR SHOWS SIGNS OF:

  • Uneven wear on one side

  • Feathering

  • Flat Spotting
