Should've really spruiked these guys a long time ago.

Its my bro-in-law and *his* bro. Give them a call for all your Tyre needs. They might even surprise you with their prices.

I always get new headlights when I'm looking for tyres too. It's always cheaper when you buy them together.

Popped in to see Brad today and got some prices on tyres for one of our work cars, very competitive pricing!

Good to hear.
I'm not just favouring them because it's family, I was fairly certain they would do good prices in most cases because simply they have to be competitive to get the business. :)

Too bad the suspension is too fucked for a wheel alignment..

Spoke to Brad on the phone today and i'll be heading in there this weekend to get 4 x Federal 595's fitted. $160 a tyre seemed like a good price

I just don't know if people like me. I know when they don't like me 'cause they'll say things like, 'Yeah, that's him, officer.'

Does Brendo make a profit?
If not, then hit up hacketts and see if they are competitive price wise... The blokes have got 6 children to feed with their respective partners lol :)

No offence taken...
My point was, if Brendan gets a cut and you're happy with the price, that's totally cool. Not trying to stinge brendo out of anything. :)
Was just suggesting that if not, you could find out how much they'd charge; I have zero to do with my brother in laws business, but I'd like to see him succeed and it's difficult to compete as a small business with such a concentrated industry and other much bigger players.
Someone is only a stranger until you've experienced their service and product; as a default part of the rAU community it's my nature to suggest giving people like this the benefit of recommendation.
Same as I'd do with Ryan/Matt, and same as I'd done with Boods, Iano et al with their business ventures.

Ohh Graham - I passed these details along to a colleague of mine, and he's buying a new set of 4 tyres from them. Said they were the best price around. My colleague did manage to find the same set of tyres online for slightly cheaper, but once shipping was factored in etc - it worked out like $50 cheaper to get the set from these guys.

Hehe yeah, it's funny getting stories from my bro about people haggling prices with them (as in, some people actually get abusive saying they can buy online for cheaper etc). :)

Not inferring your colleague did anything of the sort btw lol
