COMPLETE TYRE RANGE
Earth moving tyres
Off the road (OTR) tyres are used on large machines mostly in the construction, roadbuilding, and mining industries. These are best suited for situations where extra resistance, grip, and durability are necessary.
Underground mining equipment & solid filled
These tyres are used in industries that deal with rough surfaces and puncture hazards. They have a high loading capacity to help improve comfort and provide greater traction in rough terrain.
Medium & light vehicle tyres
These tyres are suitable for light and heavy-duty trucks, vans, and cars. Our tyres are focused on durability, economy, and performance, making them perfect for Central Queensland residents.
These tyres are specifically designed tyres for towing purposes that help support excess weight and maximise safety while on the road.
Our motorbike tyres focus on grip and traction to maintain a large contact point when cornering due to their U-shaped profile.
Our truck tyres are both large and wide to improve road safety and help with durability, fuel consumption, and CO2 emissions.

How do I know when it’s time to replace my tyres?
The most common signs that it’s time for car tyre replacement are when the tread depth is worn down to 1.6mm, or when the tyres are more than 6 years old. Other signs include cracks or cuts in the sidewall, uneven wear, and a vibration or thumping sound while driving.
How often should I get my tyres rotated, and why is it important?
It’s generally recommended to rotate your tyres every 5,000 to 8,000 kilometres, or every six months. Rotating your tyres helps to ensure even wear and prolong their lifespan. Front tyres tend to wear faster than rear tyres, so rotating them helps to distribute the wear more evenly.
What tyre size do I need for my vehicle?
The correct tyre size for your vehicle can be found in the owner’s manual or on the placard on the driver’s side door jamb. It’s important to use the recommended tyre size for your vehicle to ensure safe and optimal performance.
How do I know if my tyres are properly inflated, and why is it important?
Tyres should be inflated to the recommended pressure, which can be found in the owner’s manual or on the placard on the driver’s side door jamb. You can check the pressure using a tyre pressure gauge. Properly inflated tyres help to improve fuel efficiency, prolong tyre life, and provide better handling and traction.
Can all punctures be repaired, or do I need to replace the tyre?
Not all punctures can be repaired, it depends on the size, location, and type of puncture. According to industry guidelines, punctures that are less than a quarter inch (6mm) in diameter and located in the central tread area of the tyre can usually be repaired safely. However, punctures that are larger, located in the sidewall or shoulder of the tyre, or have caused significant damage to the internal structure of the tyre may not be repairable and the tyre may need to be replaced.
