Here are six established car tyre workshops in Singapore with great prices, promotions and bundles for drivers to maintain or upgrade their tyres, wheels and rims.
Unsurprisingly, the parts of your car that are most vulnerable to damage are the tyres and rims.
Besides being worn down from daily use, car tyres can also degrade if you fail to maintain the correct air pressure. Then, there’s the ever-present danger of getting a puncture, whether from running over something sharp, or due to an act of mischief.
Driving on under-inflated or flat tyres can also cause damage to your rims — especially if you run into bumps on the road.
More often though, it is careless driving that damages your wheels — mounting a kerb or driving over gravel can scratch your rims. In serious cases, it can even cause your rims to crack or break.
Hence, you’ll want to make sure your car’s tyres and rims are in tip-top condition, and to help you with that, here are our pick of six car workshops in Singapore specialising in all things tyres and rims.
