Brakes

Brakes

Don’t risk the safety of yourself or those around you by driving with questionable brakes or worn brake pads. To ensure your vehicle’s brakes meet performance standards, get your braking system checked by a qualified mechanic at least once a year. Our in-house brake specialists can check out your brakes and make any necessary repairs or replacements to ensure optimal brake performance.

Get your brakes checked immediately if your:

  • Brake warning light comes on.
  • Car loses grip when braking.
  • Car pulls heavily to one side.
  • Brake pedal feels low, hard, soft or spongy.
  • Steering wheel shudders when you brake.
  • Brakes screech or squeal.
  • Car takes longer to stop than it should.
  • Hand brake travel is high.
  • Vehicle moves when the handbrake is on.

 

If any of these signs sound familiar, visit your local Tony's Tyre Service store and one of our qualified mechanics will give your brakes a thorough check. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!

Suspension

Suspension

Your car’s suspension is a system of shock absorbers, linkages, ball joints and springs that essentially connect your vehicle to its wheels. It has the responsibility of keeping all four tyres in contact with the road at all times, ensuring that the steering, driving and braking systems work efficiently together. Your suspension is a critical vehicle safety system and if it becomes worn out or has defective parts, your vehicle will no longer be safe to drive.

Bring your vehicle in as soon as possible if:

  • Your vehicle slides or fails to hug the road on bends
  • You notice any unusual tread wear on your tyres
  • Your vehicle nosedives when braking
  • Oil seeps out of your shock absorbers
  • You experience driving instability
  • Your steering wheel vibrates while driving

Our qualified mechanics offer a full range of suspension parts and services including, but not limited to:

  • Shock absorbers
  • Springs
  • Struts
  • Ball joints
  • Bushes
  • Tie rod ends


If you think your suspension needs any servicing or repairs, or perhaps you’re not sure and want to get it checked out, take it to a Tony's Tyre Service near you and one of our qualified mechanics will be happy to straighten things out.

CV Boots

A CV boot is a rubber cover that provides protection for the CV (Constant Velocity) joint which is responsible for transmitting power from the engine and transmission. The CV boots are exposed to constant heat and weather conditions so it is common for CV boots to degrade over time. If your CV boot splits, lubricating grease will come away from the CV joint which could result in expensive damage including the replacement of the CV joint.

If you are concerned about the condition of your CV joints and boots, see the team at Tony's Tyre Service and one of our qualified mechanics will be happy to help.
