Some of the car battery brands that we stock include:

  • Century

Professional Car Battery Installation:

You might think that installing batteries is a relatively simple task, but on modern cars, changing the batteries requires a different technique to keep radio and clock settings. As an anti-theft measure in newer cars, the radio may be completely disabled if power is lost momentarily, requiring a security code to reset it.

Furthermore, you may have miss-diagnosed your car’s electrical troubles as a battery fault, but replacing it may be of no use. We’ll carefully analyse your car to save you money, making sure that it is in fact the battery that is causing problems, and not another auto-electrical component. We take care when fitting your batteries to ensure your car is working properly; just because the car is running doesn’t mean your battery has been fitted correctly!

Auto Electrical

Toowoomba’s Most Reliable Auto Electrical Mechanic

Affordable New Tyres & Mechanical in Toowoomba are a team of highly experienced mechanics specialising in diagnosing and repairing auto-electrical problems. Our team of skilled mechanics, each with over 10 years’ experience in the field, assess your vehicle attentively to find and repair faults. We’re also capable of installing new accessories, such as fog lights to enhance your vehicle, whilst remaining compatible with the rest of your vehicle. Please get in touch with us to organise auto-electrical servicing on your vehicle.

Auto Electrical Mechanical Repairs:

Sometimes tracing auto-electrical faults to their root cause can be a case of elimination, and we carefully analyse the faults occurring in your vehicle through visual inspection and on road testing, as well as extensive vehicle diagnostics.

Common electrical faults include:

  • Alternator failure
  • Flat Batteries
  • Starter motor failure
  • Ignition coil / Spark plug deterioration

As established auto mechanics since 1984, we’re familiar with all problems that vehicles throw at us, and there isn’t a problem we haven’t encountered, nor one we couldn’t fix. We use high quality components and always give our customers the option of installing OEM or aftermarket equipment.

Auto Electrical Accessory Installation:

We can install aftermarket equipment on your vehicle requiring electrical installation, such as light bars, headunits, spotlights, fridges, and other accessories. Careful inspection of the accessory’s requirements will be made to ensure your car can safely run the accessories without flattening your battery. Similarly, if you’d like to install the equipment yourself, we can install a 12-volt socket to the area of your car that requires it.

Toowoomba Mechanics Specialising in Vehicle Diagnostics

Our expert mechanics provide quality vehicle diagnostics and services to Toowoomba locals, using cutting-edge equipment to accurately detect underlying faults occurring in your car. Vehicle diagnosis has come a long way since we started, and we’ve been there since the beginning. Our small team of qualified mechanics all have more than 10 years’ experience and can accurately detect a problem in any car, from older cars without an ECU that require manual diagnostic checks, to newer cars that can be plugged into a computer. Please give us a call for expert diagnosis from local mechanics you can trust.

The nature of check engine lights leaves much to be interpreted, and it’s hard to diagnose exactly what’s wrong with your car without plugging it in to a diagnostic tool. Car auto-electrics can be complex, and sometimes your car displays check engine lights for trivial things like sensors failing but often it is for something much more important. We recommend you bring your car in at the earliest convenience to avoid doing any further damage.

Expert Car Diagnostics for New and Old Vehicles:

As cars inevitably get more and more complex, we regularly update our equipment to conform to the demands of vehicle manufacturers. This allows us to quickly identify problems in your vehicle and repair them, minimising labour time spent researching the problem.

We carefully analyse your vehicle’s computer, scanning it for potential problems as well as physically inspecting areas of your vehicle that can be causing the problem. In addition to providing you with a print-out of the fault codes received, we can provide you with a quote on fixing the issue, giving you the choice of OEM or aftermarket parts whenever possible.

As a small team of local professionals, we value our customers highly and seek to maintain our long-held reputation for quality workmanship. Get in touch with us for personalised, quality mechanical services that you can trust.

Steering Repair Services:

We perform steering box and rack rebuilds on site and we’ll advise you on whether rebuild or outright replacement is a more financially viable solution. All our mechanics have over 10 years’ experience under their belt, and they can work on any car, regardless of if it is equipped with power steering or not. Sometimes steering problems can be traced down to poor wheel alignment, another service we provide.

Suspension Mechanical Repairs:

Suspension components are often the cause of worrying noises that occur when driving. The suspension system of a modern car is quite involved and it can be difficult for the typical driver to correctly identify the problem simply by hearing it. If you’ve found a specific noise when driving that’s troubling you, please give us a call on or .

We realise that explaining the noise your car makes can be difficult, so we go the extra mile by taking you with us on a test drive to identify the specific noise you’re worried about, to make sure we correct the right problem. We’ll replicate the problem in our workshop and then attend to the problem, replacing the components with your choice of OEM or aftermarket parts, depending on your needs and budget.

Suspension Upgrade:

Sometimes your car’s stock suspension setup may not suit your lifestyle, and we seek to alleviate the problem by installing quality components that suit your needs. Whether it be a coilover install for track performance, or an aftermarket lift kit for off-roading, we listen to your needs and make recommendations to suit.

Common suspension upgrades we perform include:

  • Airbag suspension install
  • Coilover install
  • Lift-Kits
  • Bushing and Sway Bar upgrades

Get in touch with us to discuss your suspension requirements, and we’ll provide you with a solution to suit your needs.

Brake and Clutch

Brake and Clutch Mechanics Based in Toowoomba

Affordable New Tyres & Mechanical are a reputable brake and clutch mechanic, providing servicing and repairs to Toowoomba locals since 1984. In our thirty years or operation, we’ve earned a reputation for our attention to detail paired with affordable prices and friendly, honest service. Give the team at Affordable New Tyres and Mechanical a call on or to book your vehicle in for any of our brake and clutch services.

Your brakes and clutch are heavy-wear items that will need attention every few services to ensure their safe operation. As all our mechanics have over ten years’ experience in the field, we can accurately detect the fault in your brake or clutch systems to ensure we fix the problem the first time. If you find that your clutch isn’t ‘biting’ correctly, or your stopping distances deteriorating, we recommend you call us to book your car in for a service at your earliest convenience.

Brake Servicing:

A road test is performed on all vehicles that we service, and checking for break wear is a vital part of our road test. If your car is frequently squealing when stopping, or your brake pedal has a lot of play or fade in it, we advise you to bring the car to us as soon as possible, as worn brake systems can prove catastrophic. We can work on all areas of the brake system, including fluid, pads and discs. We’ll always try our hardest to offer multiple options to suit different budgets and driving applications.

When assessing your brake rotors for wear, we’ll inform you whether machining, or outright disc replacement is a more financially viable solution. All brake machining is done in-house by the same person who assesses your brakes. We differ from many of our competitors by doing it this way, and we feel that the best person to machine your brakes is the person who has physically operated them during a test drive.

Clutch Servicing:

We pride ourselves on being able to service vehicles of all shapes and sizes, so we maintain close relationships with our suppliers to bring you products that suit your needs at a competitive price.

If you’d like to retain your warranty and keep the original clutch that you’re used to, we can install OEM clutches when required, or install aftermarket clutches of various materials to suit your budget or driving style. We can supply and install comfortable clutches for easy town driving, as well as twin and triple-plate clutches for performance oriented driving. Similarly, we also offer heavy-duty clutches for towing.

Custom-Made Clutches for Towing:

Towing large loads frequently can adversely affect the lifespan of your clutch and differential. If you find that you burn through clutches frequently, we can have a heavy-duty clutch custom made for your vehicle. We consider your typical towing loads and outsource a clutch to be custom made to suit your needs, minimising the wear on your driveline and reducing the amount of times you need to have a clutch replaced. Please get in touch with us for a consultation on a custom-made clutch.

General Servicing

Toowoomba Mechanics Specialising in General Vehicle Servicing

Affordable New Tyres & Mechanical are a team of Toowoomba mechanics, established in 1984. Since opening, we’ve performed general servicing on thousands of different vehicles, each serviced with a personalised level of care that large franchises don’t bother with. Our small team of local mechanics, each with over 10 years’ experience, will leave no stone unturned when evaluating your vehicle. We treat your car as if it were our own, and make sure it’s in a condition that we ourselves would be pleased to drive. Please give us a call to have one of our expert mechanics give your car the care it deserves.

Included in your general service will be:

  • Battery test
  • Inspection of all mechanical components
  • Diagnostic Check
  • Oil & Filter Changes

We also provide a drop-off service anywhere inside Toowoomba City to ensure that you can get to work without any issues. For those who work late and are unable to collect their cars inside our business hours, we have a safe lock-up on site so you can collect your car the next morning.

Affordable Mechanical Services to Suit All Budgets:

When replacing items outside of what is typically replaced in your car’s service intervals, we’ll give you an over the phone quote before proceeding. All our services are done to manufacturer specification and we give you the option of OEM or aftermarket equipment, with the latter option often being more affordable and chosen by owners of cars outside of their warranty period. You’ll be given a written report, detailing what is done after we service your vehicle, and you’ll also be notified of any areas that need attention at your next service, giving you a rough idea of how much you’ll be up for at the next service interval.

We always take into account your financial needs when servicing your vehicle, and we’ll advise you on solutions that suit your requirements. For serious issues where a key vehicle component, such as a gearbox or differential, requires rebuild or replacement, we’ll construct a quote and determine for you whether rebuild or replacement is the better option.

Preventative Maintenance:

The long-term health of your vehicle is important, and as such, we only use engine oil brands that provide warranties for oil-related engine failure on their products. The engine oil brands that satisfy our warranty requirements include: Castrol, Shell, Mobil, Penrite and AC Delco.

Preventative maintenance is the most economical way to run your vehicle, and we try to fix problems before they happen. Our team are aware of the common faults present in many makes and models, allowing them to detect problems before they become costly.
