Tyres & Wheel Alignment Specialists in Yeerongpilly
As a full service workshop we can’t ignore the biggest safety item on your car – tyres. We aren’t aligned to any particular tyre brand so this allows us to recommend the right tyre for your car. If your manufacturer recommends a Bridgestone tyre chances are we’ll follow that recommendation.
Tyres used to just be the thing that kept the wheels off the ground, now they’re an essential part of the safety, suspension, and handling systems. Modern tyre technology allows vehicle manufacturers to spend less on expensive suspension and braking components because they can rely on the performance of the tyres. This is good for you because it keeps the cost of cars at a reasonable level, but not good for you if you don’t replace your tyres with the right brand and specification.
Just because your car has Pirelli tyres on it, doesn’t mean they can’t be replaced with Goodyear, but tyres have significant specifications beyond just the size. When you look at two tyres that are the same size but one is twice the price of the other – there’s a reason for it and buying the cheaper tyre if its not matched to your car isn’t a good idea.
Whenever we replace tyres we also do a full wheel rebalance. If you’re feeling a vibration through your steering wheel chances are a wheel has gone out of balance. Don’t delay bringing your car in when this happens – a quick rebalance is likely to be much easier and cheaper than having to replace your tyres.
We also recommend a wheel alignment whenever you buy new tyres. There’s no sense in spending good money on tyres if you’re wheels are pointing in the wrong direction. You’ll be back for another set in no time at all.
Here’s a test for you – on a straight road loosen your grip on the steering wheel (be safe – don’t let go!) and ease on the brakes. If your car pulled to either side you probably need a wheel alignment.
Can't speak highly enough of this company. Would absolutely recommend to anyone and often do. Integrity, honesty and quality all round. One of the rare mechanics where the mechanic will talk you through everything. And given the way I drive, anyone who can keep my heap running deserves 10/10. Top people.
What a great family owned business, I would recommend it to anyone. Eric and Karen go to all lengths to make sure the customer is happy! I was very impressed with there communication throughout the repair.
Now the prado is back on the road to do more adventures, I will be going back for all my major services in the future.
Very honest workshop with fair prices. Already on the phone I got the most honest and friendly help from all the workshops I called in Brisbane. I absolutely recommend this place!
Fantastic service and so helpful, would and will be recommending Eric and his team to everyone I know.

I was in the process of swapping cars and originally went there for some bodywork fixing on the car that was for sale - job done quickly, effectively and at a great price.
I then went back with a second car I'd bought as a replacement to find out there had been multiple engine error codes hidden prior to sale. The team at Wayne's Auto repairs went above and beyond and showed tremendous care and customer service by helping ensure to the problem was resolved.
I had my corolla serviced last week and the job was done very well. Now the car 100% better. Thanks to Eric and Karen
