Company: Graeme Crook's Tyres & More

Contact Person: Kerry McKell (Manager)

Location/Address: Opposite Riverlink, Ipswich, Qld.

Phone Number: 3202 2455
Mobile Number: 0411 424 213

Work Carried Out: Took me out to my screwed car. Rolled the tyres back onto the beads, followed me back to the shop. Removed the tyres, checked them over, pumped up my tyres, personally showed me the wear on the tyres.

Recommended Why?: Didn't take advantage of lost soul youths in trouble. Helped us out for an hour, I didn't let us pay them! (We gave them beer afterwards). Highly recommended.

Option1 Garage in Brisbane for tyres.

Great service and prices.
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.
