Title: Tyre Dealers [in VIC]
Post by: Brad M on March 30, 2012, 09:39:37 AM
I had to remove a thread from a while back bagging a Tyre Mob, they fitted second hand tyres which were of questionable quality (I'll go no further publicly).

Anyway, I wanted to have a thread where the good ones can be named, to make the choices clearer for like minded folk.

These are some I've personally have good dealings with ...

Brunswick/Brunswick West:
Stuckey Tyre Service - 828 Sydney Road, Brunswick VIC 3056

Greensborough:
Monty Tyres & Service - 5 George Court, Greensborough VIC 3088

Port Melbourne:
Bob Jane - 473 Williamstown Rd, Port Melbourne VIC 3207

I can vouch for Monty Tyres, used them for 3 or so years while I was living on that side of the City.

Now we use Bay City Tires on Thompson Road Norlane, near Geelong.

I have used for over 10 years

Ian Edgers Tyre Power
577 Blackburn Road
Notting Hill, 3168

Ian and his staff know tyres and can give great advice for road and club days as they race and are involved in club motorsport. They are very competitive on price as well.

I have just bought a set of Kumho V70A from
Essendon Tyre Power
As these are competition tyres there are only limited dealers.
Being the Melbourne authorised dealer they were cheaper than any other Kumho outlet.

Stuckeys in Brunswick.

Only ones to respond from a half dozen I contacted on a set of tyres with a specific question for XL types.  Fitting Michelin PS4s this Saturday.

Does one get a discount for being an Aroca member?

Not sure if I've mentioned these folks before but:

Bob Jane T-Marts  in South Geelong always have brilliant service. The guys there really seem to know their stuff (and appreciate their client's  classic cars to boot).

470 Moorabool Street,
Cnr Fyans St,
South Geelong VIC 3220

Walking distance to the stadium too, if you're up for a seeing a game between tyres (post COVID-19 that is).

Sadly I had less than ideal outcomes from my recent tyre purchase in my 75. Bought 4 Potenza RE003's (great tyre though for road use) from Donnellans in Blackburn and in using their lift device (pseudo hoist) they pushed my exhaust up hard against the underside of my car. I took the car straight back as there was terrible vibrations through the car and they straightened my exhaust but now I have a hole in my centre muffler where the pipe exits.

I'm sure the hoist works for more modern cars with greater ground clearance (albeit my 75 is not lowered) and with exhausts that sit up closer to the underside of the car but surely they should know to check before using that system on a lower, older car.
