Wheel Alignment

Affordable Wheel Alignment Services in Toowoomba

Affordable New Tyres and Mechanical provide highly accurate wheel alignment services for affordable prices at our Toowoomba-based mechanical workshop. Driving on misaligned wheels is not only a hazard for yourself and others, but it also prematurely wears your tyres, costing you more in the long-run. Contact us today to book your vehicle in for a wheel alignment service in Toowoomba.

Your wheel can come out of alignment for many reasons. You could have hit a large pothole or bumped into the gutter when parking. A typical area that needs adjustment is the toe angle, which is the angle your wheel points. The ideal toe angle should be parallel with the other wheels to keep your car from veering when you’re travelling straight.

What’s important is not how they were misaligned, but if they are misaligned; if you experience shuddering or vibrating from your steering wheel, or worse, your vehicle pulls to one side of the road when you keep your steering wheel straight, your wheels are misaligned and we recommend you get to us at your earliest convenience to keep your car safe. Please give us a call on 07 4632 5566 or 07 4659 8699 if you’re worried about the state of your wheel alignment.

Why Do I Need a Wheel Alignment?

Failing to get your wheels aligned when they are out of alignment will cause your tyres to wear in uneven patterns, making your vehicle less safe to drive due to deteriorated handling, as well as forcing you to buy new tyres prematurely. When we perform our logbook and general servicing, we perform wheel alignment checks to see if your wheels need adjustment.

Balancing vs Alignment:

You might have also heard of wheel balancing. Wheel balancing is where we check that the wheel rotates evenly (i.e. doesn’t shake side to side) when travelling. Sometimes weights are fitted to counter-act any imbalances. Wheel balancing is free when we fit new tyres, but if you experience your steering wheel shake, you may need to consider getting your wheels re-balanced.

Precision Alignment:

We use cutting-edge equipment to accurately measure your wheel alignment before adjusting, and our work is triple-checked to make sure you roll out on safe alignment that isn’t going to prematurely wear your tyres.

Puncture Repairs for Car Tyres:

If you’ve noticed that one of your tyres is slightly deflated compared to the rest then chances are you’ve got a slow-leak puncture. Punctures can make driving not only annoying because you have to re-inflate your tyres constantly, but can also become dangerous after sustained use.

Puncture repairs are a more affordable option that replacing your tyre; we fix your punctures with an eye for detail to ensure that performance and safety are not compromised. We’ll also assess your tyres to give you an idea of how long before they need to be replaced. Best of all, all the tyre sets we install come with one free puncture repair.

Tyre Rotation:

Rotating your tyres is a great way to extend the life of your tyres, especially if you own a FWD (front-wheel-drive) vehicle, as your rear tyres don’t incur as much tread wear as your fronts, which steer and put the power to the ground. Rotating your tyres every 5,000 – 10,000Kms is recommended to keep your tread depth on all four wheels close to each other, improving handling. People receiving log book or general servicing with us also get their tyres balanced and rotated.

For owners of AWD (all-wheel-drive) vehicles, we require that you replace all four tyres at the same time, as replacing half your tyres with new tyres (which are marginally larger than your worn ones, thus performing less rotations) can cause damage to your vehicles driveline over time. Most car manufacturers will exclude warranty claims on AWD drivelines when all four tyres aren’t identical.

Replacement Car Battery and Car Battery Installation in Toowoomba

Affordable New Tyres & Mechanical offer comprehensive mechanical services to our customers, including installing replacement car batteries at our Toowoomba workshop. We have a team of qualified and experienced mechanics who strive to uphold our local reputation for quality workmanship and affordable prices. Please give us a call if you require a car battery replacement or diagnosis.

Your choice of battery depends greatly on your vehicle, usage and budget. As such, we supply a massive range of batteries to suit all makes and models of passenger vehicles. All our batteries come with warranties for added peace of mind.

Some of the car battery brands that we stock include:

  • Century
  • Bosch
  • Batterybarn
  • Forbes
  • Superstart

We use every major brand of car batteries on the market, so please give us a call if there’s a specific battery you’d like and we can arrange to get it in stock for your installation.

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!

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.

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.

Vehicle Diagnostics Service

If your check engine light has turned on, get in touch with the Affordable New Tyres team to book in for a vehicle diagnostic service. Call 07 4632 5566 or 07 4659 8699.

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

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.

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.
