Seasons change, so should your battery!

No one enjoys the dreaded roadside assistance call when your battery fails, most especially in the crisp cold of winter. But as we journey through the colder months of the year, TYRES & MORE® wants you to be safe and prevent disaster before it happens. Before you turn down the lights and shut off your car for the day, take a few moments to go through this quick questionnaire to see if your car has signs of a failing battery.

  1. Harder to start your car on cold mornings?

We may struggle to get up and go with the chilly mornings, but your car shouldn’t. An inconsistent start could be a telltale sign of a loose or corroded battery terminal connection or perhaps a low draw of electric current from your battery.

  1. Are your headlights looking dimmer than usual?

With darker early mornings and longer nights, headlights are even more critical during the winter season. If you’ve noticed less brightness illuminating the road ahead when driving with your headlights on, your car battery may be dying and in need of a change.

  1. Have you found problems with your stereo system output?

If your favourite jams seem to have backing vocals from your engine, a battery problem may be looming. Look out for a squealing sound coming from the engine that gets louder as your sound system plays. Alternatively, you could test your battery by turning down the radio and then revving the engine to see if you hear a whine or fuzzy sound.

  1. Are you sure your alternator is in good working condition?

A good alternator regulates your electric current to keep it recharged, but a bad alternator can overcharge and overheat your battery, shortening its lifespan and making it unreliable. If your next car service is on the horizon, be sure to check if your alternator needs a replacement.

If you’ve checked no to all of the above, k

TYRES & MORE® – ADDING MORE LIFE TO YOUR DRIVE

Get Moving and Spring Back to Life with Fantastic In-Store Deals

 When it comes to automotive service centres, TYRES & MORE® stands out as the “one stop shop” for all your vehicle safety and fitment requirements. Dotted across the country, the TYRES & MORE® fitment centres have been assisting locals for over eight years – as a brand synonymous with competitively priced products and services, expert assistance and an overall passion and desire for next level customer service in an industry often marred with disingenuous intentions.

Farishta Singh – Marketing Executive at TYRES & MORE®, “When we initially launched the TYRES & MORE® brand concept, it was meant to provide customers with a friendly and reliable neighborhood establishment where our customers are on a first name basis and are treated like family rather than clients.”

“And almost a decade later, as we reflect on our achievements, we are most proud of our team that have quite sincerely and authentically upheld our brand values and continue to elevate our brand from strength to strength. Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our communities – the amazing patrons that put their trust and that of their families in our hands each day – and to give back to them is our greatest joy.”

As part of the brand’s endeavor to give back, there are several local social outreach programmes that the stores contribute to annually. Additionally, what better way to show gratitude than with great prices and professional services?

As we watch the season transform, and while preparing for the warmer weather and rain in parts of the country, TYRES & MORE® is looking out for you, encouraging drivers to get their free safety check at their nearest fitment centre. But that’s not all, as part of their annual “spring clean”, it’s time to refresh, recharge and replace with the “Spring Back to Life” promotion where all locations will be offering exclusive in-store only deals from tyres, wheels, brakes, shocks, suspension kits, wipers, services and more. To sweeten the deal and not disappoint our online shoppers, TYRES & MORE® is also offering 30% off wheel alignment and balancing when you purchase the service online.
