FAQs

When do tyres need replacing?

RACV recommends replacing tyres prior to the Tread wearing down to the Tread Depth Indicators. Once the tread has worn to this level, tyres are unroadworthy and must be changed. In the absence of tread depth indicators, the minimum legal tyre tread depth is 1.5mm.

Tread depth is measured from the base of the groove to the top of the tread, at the lowest (most worn) tread area of the tyre. Tyres may also need replacing if there are any cracks, impact damage and even some punctures.

Which areas are covered?

We cover the majority of postcodes in the Melbourne metropolitan area. To check your postcode, please use the search function at the top of this page.

What does the booking include?

Our standard service includes the call-out and all labour for tyre fitting and wheel balancing. When you book online you can choose wheel alignment as an optional extra.

Are there any extra costs?

The total cost will be listed during the online checkout process - this includes GST and any delivery fee. Free delivery on all orders over $250.

What is balancing?

Included in the standard mobile tyre service, wheel balancing is essential when any new tyres are fitted to ensure they rotate freely. This saves you fuel, tyre wear and makes for a more comfortable ride!

Wheels that are not balanced properly will cause your steering wheel to vibrate, giving you less control as a driver.

What is wheel alignment?

A wheel alignment involves using special machinery to adjust the angles of your vehicle's axles and wheels so that they point straight ahead in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification.

To the naked eye your wheels may look like they are pointing straight, but even the slightest amount of difference could be enough to cause uneven wear for your tyres. Driving onto the kerb, driving through a pothole, driving on unevenly surfaced roads - all of these things could be enough to cause your wheel alignment to be out.

What information do I need to book online?

All we need are the four size-identification numbers printed on the side of your tyres. Our simple guide shows you how to find these. We ask this information, as vehicles of the same make & model can have different size tyres. Providing these four numbers ensures the right tyre for your car. To finalise, simply select a booking location and time, pay online and we come to you!

What happens to the old tyres?

If your old tyres are still in a roadworthy condition you may elect to keep one or all as a spare. If not, or if you choose not to, we take them away for recycling and destruction free of charge.

How to read the size of my tyres?

Your tyre size is always written as a sequence of numbers and letters on the tyre sidewall. In the example below we will use a tyre size  185/55 R15 81H – which can spilt into 5 parts:

  • Width (185) – the width of your tyre in millimetres
  • Profile (55)- This is the size between wheel rim and the top of the tyre, measured as a percentage of the tyre width
  • Tyre size (R15) - This is the diameter of the rim in inches
  • Load index (81) - this refers to the load capacity in kilograms of the tyre. This number is an index, with the number referring to a KG load.
  • Speed index (H) – this refers to the maximum speed the tyre can be safely driven at. This letter is an index, with the letter referring to a KPH speed.
