Congratulations to Travis, Vince and the team at Jax Tyres for scoring pole position on our Geelong Top Mechanics list! With a 4.7 Star overall rating, it’s plain to see our customers value the top quality workmanship and professional customer service they provide.

And as their name states, they specialise in tyres, wheels, brakes and suspension servicing, as well as wheel balancing and alignment.

Jax Tyres Geelong is conveniently located a few hundred metres from the heart of Geelong, so you can head to the shopping precinct whilst your car is in their very capable hands.

Nice one guys!

Really happy with the service, staff were very friendly, knowledgable and informative. E.R

From the moment I walked in the door I felt at ease. Steve greeted me at reception, his team immediately examined my car. Within a short time I was quoted $50 for the job which was repaired on the spot. I was quoted much higher prices for same repair{as much as $200}. My car servicing will now be done at Affordable Tyres and servicing. Thanks for the cup of tea Steve:) H.A

Very Good. Very helpful. Checked everything that needed to be done and also rang me to say battery was not good which I asked them to check. S.W


#5 SJB Auto Service & Repair
Workshop manager, Greig McKinley, and his team of mechanical experts have spent the last 9 years building a reputation of friendly service, honesty and trust in Drysdale and surrounding suburbs.
