Our tyre centre is located in Ballinderreen, between Kinvara and Kilcolgan on the N67 in South galway. From here we offer all you’d expect from a quality tyre centre and more.
The tyre centre is central to many of our neighbouring towns and villages such as Kinvara, Kilcolgan, Ballyvaughan, Lisdoonvarna, Doolin, Ennis, Gort, Labane, Ardrahan, Clarinbridge, Oranmore, Craughwell and ClareGalway
We supply and fit new tyres such as Bridgestone, Pirelli, Michelin, Continental, Goodyear, Dunlop, Kumho, Falken, Avon, Firestone, Hankook, Nokian, Toyo, Vredestein, Nankang, Silverstone, Zeetex and a range of Budget tyres too.
What is it? Wheel balancing is the process of balancing the weight of a tyre and wheel assembly so that it travels evenly at high speeds.
When should we do this and why? It prevents vibrations passing into the car (often a cause of travel sickness in children) and prevents premature and uneven tyre wear. It should be carried out any time a tyre is mounted onto a wheel or if you feel a vibration in the car, usually in the steering wheel.
We can carry these out quickly and simply whether at our shop or out and about with the mobile unit. A punctured tyre can be repaired if the hole is less than 6mm in diameter and is found on the centre ¾ of the tyre tread. Sidewall and shoulder punctures should never be repaired and unfortunately if you get one here, it means a new tyre is required.
Why? Simply because the tyre isn’t designed to be fixed off the centre ¾ of the tread and isn’t strong enough to safely hold a repair.
We offer the latest in 4 wheel 3D wheel alignment, this was called tracking before cars got more complex. Wheel Alignment is the Measurement of complex suspension angles and the adjustment of a variety of suspension components. It is a suspension-tuning tool which greatly influences the vehicle's handling and tyre wear.

Free tyre checks, punctures repairs and alloy wheel repairs
We offer free tyre and air pressure checks to all our customers, call by once a month and we’ll check them for free for you. If a tyre is losing more than 3psi every month it would be worth investigating for a puncture. Punctures can be caused by objects penetrating the tyre or the tyre not sealing to the wheel, the latter often happens when a wheel gets damaged and is no longer round or corrosion occurs. No matter what it is, we can sort it out for you. We can have alloy wheels repaired, refurbished or even replaced.

Community working together
At TyreAware we are always aware that without the good people of our communities that use our business, we wouldn’t be here. We work with local charities such as Cancer Care West, Galway Lifeboats RNLI and others to help fundraise and give back to the communities.
We also try our best to help brighten the place up too with our upcycling of used tyres into the likes of our Minions, tea cups, Snowmen, plant pots and even Christmas trees. Tyres can be a raw material for upcycling of many projects, if you have an idea let us know and we can try and work together on it.
Corporate tyre safety days
We are delighted to work with large employers and pillars of our communities and try to work alongside them to help raise awareness about tyres and the safety aspect that people sometimes don’t think about.
A tyre is the only part of your vehicle's safety system that is in contact with the road.
We offer large scale free tyre safety checks at car parks when more than 35 cars in the same place would like their tyres checked.
