Tyres, Brakes and Suspension


This trio is what you rely on to stop when you apply the brakes. On the surface you may think that suspension wear and tear will only impact on your ride and comfort but the real danger is when the suspension loses its ability to keep your tyres in constant contact with the road and particularly on wet roads, you then become an accident waiting to happen because traction is lost.

Any of the following warrant a Suspension checkup:


  • Car not sitting level when parked.

  • Uneven tyre wear.

  • Abnormal noises when driving.

  • Vehicle heights indicate spring problems.
