Tyres and Fitting
Looking for a tyre? Perhaps your tyres are no longer providing a safe or pleasurable ride? Good tyres can make a big difference to your motorcycle or scooter. Let us advise you on the best tyre for your riding style and usage. We stock Pirelli as they have a great range of tyres for most styles of usage at an affordable price.
Tyres are what keep your scooter or motorcycle on the road – literally… We can’t stress how important it is to check your tyres regularly.
- Check your tyre pressures – if you’re not sure what tyre pressures your scooter or motorcycle should run, give us a ring or drop in to see us. Tyre pressures that are too low or too high can result in increased fuel consumption, poor handling and the need to replace your tyres more often due to accelerated wear or poor tyre wear patterns. We check your tyres during servicing and adjust tyre pressure for you, but this must be maintained in-between servicing to ensure correct wear. Tyre pressure gauges are relatively inexpensive and most service stations have digital gauges on their air hoses.
- Check your tyre tread – tyres without good tread depth or with uneven wear can be dangerous. Many tyres have tread wear indicators, if the indicators are flush with the rest of your tyre then your tyre needs to be changed. Qld Law specifies minimum tread depth at 1.5mm accross the face of the tread normally in contact with the road – fines do apply for non-compliance. If you are unsure of how to check your tyre tread, drop in and see us. We check your tyre tread and wear patterns during servicing and will advise if you are due for new tyres.
