In a first for the tyre chain JAX Tyres Warrawong franchisee Bec Bull is teaming up with fellow Illawarra franchisees Ainslie Weekes, of JAX Tyres Fairy Meadow, and Greg Hollis, of JAX Tyres Warilla, to provide people in the Illawarra with a chance to upskill their tyre knowledge.
The three franchisees are hosting a first of its kind free interactive workshop at the Warrawong Plaza rooftop store on October 20.
They know people of all ages are not always empowered with the information they need to understand the tyre fitting process.
And some lack the basics in tyre maintenance all-together.
So in a bid to educate motorists, particularly those who may have just received their licence, they aim to myth-bust common tyre misconceptions.
They will be hosting the workshop from 1pm on Saturday October 20 to ensure tyre changing is no longer a daunting task for many people.
It will involve easy-to-digest modules that will give those present theoretical and practical takeaways.
As well as tips and tricks on how to get the most out of a mechanic.
And what the most important questions motorists can ask to get the best value for themselves and their vehicles.
The workshops will include:
- Where to locate important info on your tyre and what does it all mean
- A 101 in best practice tyre maintenance
- What causes day-to-day tyre wear and tear
- Practical tyre changing session
