Quality Mechanical Services

Trident Tyre Centres are South Australian leaders in vehicle service & repair and tyre distribution. We have been servicing communities in and around Mount Gambier since 1980.

We’ve grown from a two-person, one shop operation to now having 40+ employees with tyre centres in Portland, Naracoorte, and Mount Gambier. Along the way we have built lasting relationships with our clients and forged strong partnerships with respected names in the automotive industry, like Pedders Suspension & Brakes.

We service all Australian, Japanese, European and American vehicles. There is no make or model of passenger or 4WD we cannot diagnose, repair, and maintain.

While Trident Tyre Centres is passionate about tyres, our experienced team of mechanics can perform safety inspections and engine rebuilds, upgrades, modifications, and general repair. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is here to help you get back on the road again.

The Highest Standard in Safety Inspection

As partners with Pedders, we can safety check your vehicle using Pedders’ 28 Point Safety Inspection and Reports. This check leaves nothing to chance and is performed by our elite technicians. The systems reviewed include:

  • Suspension
  • Steering
  • Bushes and assembly parts
  • Brakes
  • Other under car components

After the inspection, you will receive a comprehensive written report showing the condition of your brakes, steering system, and suspension. We will highlight any repairs that need to be done and show you step-by-step how the work will be carried out and the parts we recommend you use.

Then, it’s up to you to decide what work is done and when we do it.

The Pedders Brakes, Steering & Suspension Check

We recommend getting the comprehensive Pedders test if you notice any of the following:

  • Abnormal noises coming from front, rear and/or underneath the vehicle
  • Vibrations or shudders especially from steering wheel or brake pedal
  • Braking unevenly – ie pulling to one side under brakes
  • Vehicles that are due for a routine under-car inspection every year/20,000kms

Four Wheel Drive Vehicle Service & Repair

Four wheel drive (4WD or 4×4) really helps on those back roads around Portland, Naracoorte, and Mount Gambier during bad weather. Different parts of a four-wheel-drive system need maintenance if they are going to function properly. Our technicians will typically:

  • Lubricate locking hubs
  • Inspect the transfer case
  • Clean components of the four-wheel-drive system

Driving over rough terrain or offloading can damage tyres, break driveline parts, and compromise steering gear. Whether your 4×4 needs engine coils replaced, air-conditioning recharges, spark plug changes, or coolant sensor repair, our team of technicians has the experience and know-how to get the job done right.
