Most of you may not think about getting a tyre service done until you discover a flat tyre or the tyre tread is completely damaged. But do you realise a tyre failure can be catastrophic, causing your car to go out of control while driving or even leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere? Knowing the warning signs of faulty tyres can prepare you to have them repaired or replaced as soon as a problem arises. Book our mobile mechanics for tyre service and ensure that your car remains safe to drive at all times.

Tyres bear the entire weight of the vehicle and they are the only part that comes into contact with the road. Driving with flat tyres disrupts your wheel alignment and puts undue stress on your car’s shocks and bearings and can even lead to accidents such as tyre explosion or tyre blowout.

At LubeMobile, our experienced technicians travel to your location fully equipped and get all the necessary car repairs and car services done to perfection. Taking online and offline bookings all across Australia including Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide, our mobile tyre shop saves you the time, effort and resources spent in finding a garage or a motor workshop.

With LubeMobile, you will always find a car mechanic near you as our mobile vans are scattered across several towns and suburbs. Making an online booking with us is really simple. All you have to do is fill out a few information about your postcode, your car’s make, model and year and you would be able to choose a convenient date and time slot for the car service. We usually organise a same or next business day booking.

Warning signs your car needs a tyre service

Using a problematic tyre can lead to serious safety issues. Here are the common indicators that your car needs a tyre service from a professional.

Pressure issues caused by over or under-inflated tyres

Both over and under-inflation of tyres pose a risk to the smooth functioning of your vehicle. Over-inflated tyres can not only lead to a blowout (sudden bursting) but can also cause uneven tyre wear and reduced traction. Filling the tyres with more pressure than they need puts immense stress on them and shortens their lifespan. One way to tell if you have an over-inflated tyre is by checking the wear patterns — so if the centres are particularly worn out — they need some air letting out until they are at the recommended pressure level.

Under-inflated tyres, on the other hand, tend to show wear on the outside edges of the tread. They are susceptible to overheating and cause increased fuel consumption as well. A LubeMobile mechanic can fix under-inflated tyres by using a dedicated tyre pressure pump to boost the air levels.

Your car tyres don’t have enough tread depth

Tread patterns allow the tyre to dig into the ground’s surface for better grip when driving on water, sand or mud. Your car tyres will be exposed to general wear and tear over time but what you must keep in mind is your tyres’ tread depth should be above 1.6mm at all times. We can help if you need assistance measuring your tyre tread depth according to Australian standards.

Cracks, punctures and bulges on tyres

Your car tyres may face cracks and bulges when damaged from an impact, for example hitting a pothole or driving over bumps and jumper curbs at an excessive speed. These problems can be aggravated if your tyres are under or over-inflated and hence getting a tyre service is important. While minute punctures at the centre of the tyre can be repaired, larger punctures on the outer edges may need a tyre replacement.

Excessive vibration and noise while driving

All cars vibrate on rough roads but if you notice a constant vibration every time you drive, chances are you need a tyre service. To address this issue, you may need a mechanic right away to get your tyres balanced or rotated. Apart from vibrations, you may also hear loud noises while driving if the tyre tread wears down.

If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s time for a tyre change or tyre repair. Our mobile tyre service includes:

  • Checking condition of the tyres and spare tyre

  • Removing wheels and old tyre off the rim

  • Fitting new tyres

  • Balancing new tyres and rim assembly

  • Checking all tyre pressures

  • Refitting wheels

How much does a car tyre puncture repair cost?

A flat tyre may be the result of several underlying causes. Our mechanic will diagnose your car and let you know what work needs to be done during your tyre service. The tyre change cost may differ from car to car depending upon the model and current condition of your vehicle. A LubeMobile mechanic will test your car and offer you an estimated invoice before starting work, putting you in control of the repair cost or replacement cost. You can also find out a general quote on the website before you decide to book our service.

How long do tyres last?

There are a variety of factors that can impact tyre longevity and hence there’s no fixed time on getting a tyre fitting done. However, most manufactures insist that you replace your tyres every five to six years, as the rubber compounds in a tyre deteriorate over time –– resulting in dry rot which can cause blowouts and tread separation. This applies for replacement tyres or spare tyres as well as they too are exposed to deterioration over time.

The tyre parts and labour work we provide during your car tyre service are covered under a 12 month/20,000km warranty. Rest assured, our mobile tyre shop stocks only branded, high-quality parts.

Are second-hand tyres safe?

Buying second-hand tyres can be a tempting deal as you can get them at half the price. When purchasing used or part-worn tyres, you also do a form of tyre recycling, decreasing the harmful impact of thrown away rubber.

However, you can never be sure about its performance and safety features as you wouldn’t know how the tyre was used or maintained by its previous owner. First-hand motorists usually remove these tyres when they’ve worn down to 3mm — the point where the tread starts to deteriorate. Which means the tyres when reused will be operating at reduced efficiency, making the grip more problematic. Hence you will have to replace the second-hand tyres in a short span, potentially costing you more in the long run.

At Lube Mobile, we not just assist an emergency car breakdown but are also equipped to carry out a standard auto service, non-urgent repairs and diagnostics.

Our mechanic can reach your doorstep as early as 8.00 am and our operating hours last between 2.00 and 4.00 pm (depending on workload). Lube Mobile technicians work 6 days a week and are available on Saturdays as well.

Book us for your car tyre service and our experts will get your car on the road in perfect working condition.
