When was the last time you checked your tyre treads? Overly or unevenly worn tyre treads can seriously affect the handling and braking capabilities of your car. Your tyres should have a ‘wear bar' in between the tread lugs indicating when you need to get your tyres replaced.
When that time comes, bring your car into Athena Automatics in Tingalpa. We have many years experience repairing and replacing tyres.

Repair or Replacement?
- Punctures - some punctures such as those in the part of the tyre that comes in contact with the road are easy to fix, while others, such as holes in the sidewall (side of the tyre) cannot be fixed
- Tread wear - tread wear is a normal part of the lifecycle of your tyre and can't be repaired. At a certain point the treads become ineffective and need to be replaced.
- Valve - a broken valve might be able to be repaired or replaced without replacing the whole tyre.
To prolong the lifetime of your tyres you should try and avoid driving in places that could contain materials that can cause punctures, such as construction sites. You should regularly check tyre pressure and inflate (or deflate) if necessary. Also keep an eye on your tyre wear patterns to make sure they are not wearing unevenly. If your tyre is wearing unevenly, often due to poor wheel alignment, it could shorten the lifetime of your tyres significantly.
