Tyrepower Mullumbimby

Tyrepower Mullumbimby is an independent store, locally owned, but part of Australia’s largest independent tyre retail chain. What does that mean? Great deals for you on you next tyres!

'Let’s face it', says owner Paul, 'the roads around here are punishing on tyres so it’s important that our customers know they can come to us for the right advice and a good deal.'

Tyrepower as a group has also just joined the Tyre Stewardship Australia group as part of an industry wide push to address the huge problem of 48 million end-of-life tyres per year.  Their efforts, along with the other members of the group,  aim to turn end-of-life tyres into a valuable feedstock for new products that generate new ‘green jobs’, establish transparent and sustainable management of recycling and deliver industry education, research and development.
