To start with, bought new tyres last july 2020 so not even 18months.
Went to local store in Elizabeth s.a. to get new battery for my xr6. Only to be told by someone working there that the battery i wanted doesnt fit. They told me that they will order another one that will fit but its the lastest and best but its dearer. Suss about it but need new battery.
Then they tell me i have got bald tyres and they need replacing. When they checked when i got them, THEY told me it was last july. I told them I dont think i have even done 20,000ks yet. I ...asked if they have my odometer reading for when tyres were fitted, cos I dont think they should be that bad after this short time, they ignored my question and just said they can order in new ones. I havent been interstate just local driving. Got Dunlop tyres and not realy happy about my mileage. So now i have to replace my tyres. I will be checking my mileage on new tyres. Better do more than the last lot. Bought other tyres that have lasted me at 3 years. Never said anything about warranty on the tyres either. Usually it at least 30,000k or 3 years, at least I thought. All my friends cant believe i need new ones already
Nice tyres but too expensive
The salesman assessed my car needed all 4 tyres replaced and said they would be around $100 each. He collected tyres from warehouse, and put tyres twice as expensive on.
Just go somewhere else.
I've used Beaurepaires services twice. 1st was getting a wheel alignment for both cars. One of the cars was still not aligned correctly and had to return for them to sort it out after they blamed the angle of our roads.
2nd was 2 new front tyres. Steering wheel now doesn't face straight when driving in a straight line but was perfect beforehand. Can't say the wheels weren't aligned properly as they're the ones that aligned them previously.
Have since consulted other people for their experiences with Beaurepaires and it seems that my issues ar...en't isolated. (For the rep that replies with a copy pasted response to everyone on this website, if you truly are sorry and want to help, send me a voucher to get my cars wheels safely aligned. Honestly, I want my car to be safe and will provide requested information.)
Questions & Answers
I recently replaced two tyres on my 4wd and the guy at the service centre put the new ones on the front. I have subsequently been advised that they should have gone on the rear as having old ones on the back can cause aquaplaning. Researching on the internet supports my friends advice. Can you please let me know which is correct and why? Thank you
Thanks for reaching out to us with your question. If you would like to clarify why this was performed on your 4WD, please contact the Beaurepaires store you visited for specific details.
