Tyres & Wheels
The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor in traction, which establishes your handling, stopping distance, and power. In wet weather, the treads of your tyres act as channels to divert the water away from where the contact patches meet the road’s surface.
Tyre manufacturers actually design their tyres with built-in redundancies, allowing their products to provide acceptable traction, even as they wear. However, if your wheels are misaligned, this creates uneven patterns of wear, making their designs useless.
Here at Moonee Ponds Tyre Service, we live up to our name, and can help you with:
- Tyres from major brands for all makes and models of:
- Passenger cars
- Wheel balancing
- Wheel alignment
- Tyre fitting

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes are purely preventative, and well-maintained brakes are often the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.
Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear, as they routinely bring tonnes of metal to a complete stop every day. For this reason we agree with brakes manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked annually.
Here at Moonee Ponds Tyre Service our expert technicians can provide the following brake services:
- Brake component machining
- Brake component replacement
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
If you haven’t had your brakes checked in a while, talk to us today!

Steering & Suspension
