On 22 November 2017, Welkom joined the growing list of places that are home to the national automotive fitment centre brand that is taking service delivery to the next level. This took place with the opening of a brand new Tyres & More at 202 Jan Hofmeyr Road, the site of the old Phakisa BestDrive.

Tyres & More Welkom is owned by franchisees Jannie and Chané Booyens, who have extensive experience in the automotive industry. Jannie began his 18-year career as an exhaust fitter and then became a wheel alignment technician, before qualifying as a Diesel Mechanic. Chané has been in the business for 12 years. Together they owned a variety of auto fitment stores. Now, the entrepreneurial Booyens have thrown their lot in with Tyres & More, one of South Africa’s fastest growing automotive fitment centre brands.

“We are excited to be part of the Tyres & More family. This brand is such a great fit for us, our customers and all of Welkom,” said Chané Booyens, Store Manager. “We now have an expanded product and service offering, and our customers are going to love that as much as they will love our new look and feel.”

Tyres & More Welkom has eleven fitment and one alignment bays, and sells and fits tyres, wheels, automotive batteries, brakes, shocks, exhausts, wiper blades, towbars, bullbars and more. It also offers vehicle servicing, nitrogen tyre inflation, wheel alignment and balancing, and shock absorber testing. According to Chané, Jannie is also the only technician in Welkom who can perform wheel alignment on vintage cars.

The Booyens invite all their customers, old and new, to come check out their freshly minted Tyres & More store, or to call them on 057-355-3185 with any questions.

Customers can also visit the website www.tyresandmore.com for information or to purchase tyres, wheels, automotive batteries and eVouchers online. The website also offers customers the ability to Book A Bay to have their new products fitted at the Tyres & More location of their choosing at a specified time.
