If I was looking for a tyre, mechanical and accessory shop to look after my vehicle, what would they require to satisfy my needs? I think there are a few qualities that come into consideration. The first being honesty. By this I mean that if you do not know, say so, if you cannot supply the product asked for, say so, and if parts are border line in requiring replacement, explain the condition so that they can make the decision. Another requirement is understanding. They would need to know and understand how the vehicle is being driven, what conditions it will encounter, what load is being added, if I am towing, how long I will be travelling and roughly how many kilometres, and even where I was going. Then of course nothing beats experience. The team at Fourbys oozes experience. Combined the sales team has over 120 years of employment in the tyre, mechanical and accessory industry. More importantly between them they have travelled to most of the sort after 4wd destinations in Australia. Their other business – Mangali 4WD - leads Tag-a-long tours all over Australia and has been in operation for 11 years. The one thing the vehicle owner has to understand is that most aftermarket products will require the decision of compromise. What tyre, suspension system, UHF, Bull Bar, Winch, Dual Battery System, Roof Rack etc will require a decision relating to price, load, ride comfort, quality of product, cost per kilometre, fuel efficiency which all depends on application and what the priority is for the vehicles set up. This means there will be a compromise in ride comfort if you need heavy duty springs or light truck tyres, there will be a compromise in distance if the UHF and antenna are of a lesser rating, compromise on information and accuracy with the different quality GPS products available – and the list goes on. So make it easy on yourself by asking the experienced team at Fourbys.

Then in the 80,s Terry and Suzanne Smith operated Discount Tyre Service from the site and introduced Australia to the Cooper Tyre.
