Total Tyre Shield allows you to drive with peace of mind

What is Total Tyre Shield? Well, think of it as an insurance plan for your tyres. Total Tyre Shield offers unlimited coverage on three important services to ensure the longevity of a set of tyres - puncture repair, rotation and wheel balancing, when you purchase a fresh set of tyres.

Encountering punctures on your tyres can be a frustrating experience. If you were to leave it be, and drive on low tyre pressure unknowingly, you will risk damaging your tyres and may even endanger your own life should the tyre fail catastrophically. That is why you should get punctures repaired as soon as possible.

While tyres are expected to last between 40,000km and 50,000km, or an average lifetime of three years in normal circumstances, this is only achievable with routine tyre rotation, each time you service your car, to ensure even tyre wear.

Do not slight the importance of wheel balancing. An unbalanced wheel can result in many problems, it can result in steering vibration, affecting the handling of your car, it can also cause uneven tyre wear, once again shortening the lifespan of your tyres.

When you purchase a fresh set of tyres for your Lexus, Toyota or Suzuki from Borneo Motors or Champion Motors, you won’t have to worry about paying for the maintenance of your car’s tyres - everything you need to stay safe on the road is included with your tyre purchase.

 

Tyres are important, don’t wait any longer. Contact BMS or CMS today to make an appointment for a set of fresh tyres!

Since when are AD mechanics better than tire shops, where all they do are tires all day long. 
but then some tire shops also FAIL  big time. Simple mounting of the red dot inline with the valve stem also cannot do.

I cannot be too sure if you will be paying more from the AD. Sometimes it depends on supply and demand. One thing good about AD is that they will have OE tyres if customers would still prefer OE tyres. 🙂

Sure there is a premium to pay compared to a neighbourhood tyre shop. But with a comprehensive tyre shield programme, I am sure you will drive out worry-free. 

When I just got my car(current car), I kenna 2 tyre puncture within the same year! And I am very particular about tyre patching and I only do mushroom patch which is more work and cost more.

Not until you go down and check it for yourself! 🤗

The pricing they gotten is set by the local tyre distributors, it cannot be far off from other workshops. If not how to be competitive! 😆

AD will have a better workshop system, there is always a store supervisor or service advisor to ensure the mechanic follow the manufacturer recommended steps. Plus. if your tyres fail you when you drive off, now with Total Tyre Shield protection, just drive back and enjoy a cuppa of coffee while they fix your problems away! 🙂

    Father and son almost get crushed by C-HR with p-plates

    TL;DR – A parked C-HR with p-plates suddenly accelerates and almost mauls a father and son at an open-air carpark. Things would have gotten ugly if they had been one second slower.     There can be miracles While some of us might not be believers, a recent video uploaded on Roads.sg might change your mind. The incident occurred on 10th September 2021. Here’s the 35-second video: A one-second difference between life and death In an open-air carpark, location unknown, a father and his son casually walk past a cam car. If you observe the video, you’ll notice a black Toyota C-HR directly opposite the cam car slowly inching forward as the father and son enter the frame. The C-HR then suddenly accelerates and crashes into the cam car just as the lucky duo clears the danger. If it had been a second earlier, the father and son would have been caught in the collision. Let’s address the elephant in the room I’m sure everyone noticed the p-plates on the C-HR. Could it be because of the driver’s inexperience?   Or it could have been a case of the driver talking on his phone? He was wearing his wireless earphones. And, if so, why wasn't his handbrake up? Online Chatter But, by 2040, no more manual car already. If everyone drives like this in 2040, scary eh! I’m just glad that by some miracle, a family did not lose a father and a son to a negligent driver.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Here's new video footage of the crash that just surfaced, via the perspective of a cam car witness: Driver lost control while trying to overtake The video footage here shows the white sports car which skidded from lane 3 to lane 1 while trying to overtake from the left side of the cam car.  Close shave with Cam Car The cam car was fortunate enough to drive away unscathed, as the cam car driver was just a few meters behind when the McLaren skidded and crashed. The million-dollar sports car was visibly damaged after it crashed into the potted plants alongside the road divider. Driver has been taken to hospital The driver has been reportedly been taken to Raffles Hospital after the crash. We're still awaiting updates about the status of the driver. We strongly advise all drivers to drive within the speed limit, and to take extra care when navigating turns, especially during the recent wet weather conditions. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Two disgruntled motorists exchanging profanities again and again and again

    The video footage which is shown from the the perspective of the motorcyclist, shows the biker accelerating from a traffic junction and almost getting cut off by a red Mazda CX-5: This exchange between the motorists happened at the junction between Sumang Lane and Sumang Crescent. The motorcyclist was riding straight, albeit accelerating pretty quickly, when the Mazda CX-5 driver attempted to overtake him from the right.  Evidently, the CX-5 driver failed to form up correctly at the junction, and drove against road directions when he went straight ahead instead of turning right, as shown below: Source: Google Maps The exchange between them continued as they drove into the same multi-story carpark, even stopping for a moment to exchange profanities and showing the finger at each other: Here's a short transcript of their 5-sec verbal exchange: --- Driver: (gesturing and talking with a muffled voice) Motorcyclist: F*** you, don't know how to keep to your lane is it! F*** you! Driver: F*** you! --- Netizens made some comments on Youtube, with mentions that this is just a small issue, and that both of them had 'too much ego':

    Buying a Tesla is not worth the money. Or is it?

    Ever since its first showroom launch in Singapore, Tesla has received a lot of attention and hype from local drivers. Located at One Assembly in Raffles City, the sparkling mini-showroom proudly features two units of what Elon Musk calls an “affordable” electric car – the Model 3 sedan. Intending to bring clean energy solutions to individuals globally, the high-profile American brand has raised the standard through its vehicles and proved that one could achieve a powerful and fast car without fossil fuels. Tesla drivers not only save money overall but save the earth as well. With the government intending to switch to an all-electric vehicle Singapore by 2040, the American brand’s local release came at just the right time. However, the main question still stands – is buying a Tesla worth it?   Are Teslas too expensive? According to Tesla’s sales portal, the Standard Range Plus Model 3 will cost $113,245* while the Model 3 Performance will go for $155,283*. Images were taken from Tesla Both prices do not include the cost of additional features and interior/exterior options, as well as COE, which means you could pay an additional $50,000 - $60,000. With the additional features, expect to pay about $173,245* for the Standard Range Plus Model 3 and $215,283* for the Model 3 Performance. For those prices, you can undoubtedly purchase something similar or more luxurious like the Renault Zoe Electric ($159,999*) or the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Luxury ($190,888*) and the Audi A4 ($188,016*). Although, it is worth noting that the Model 3's performance figures (0 - 100 km/h in 5.6s) obliterate every other car in its price bracket, making it an especially good deal. Audi A4 40 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Luxury Audi A4 45 Tesla Model 3 Images were taken from The Car Guide The Model 3 enjoys the EV Early Adopter Incentive (EEAI), which includes a 45% rebate of the ARF, capped at $20,000, and an additional reimbursement of $45,000. This rebate is the highest for any car in Singapore and its attractive discounts make drivers eager to own a piece of Elon Musk’s technology.  * All prices were taken from Tesla and sgCarMart Will there be charging problems for HDB owners? After its soft launch in July, Tesla has set up three charging points on the ninth floor in Orchard Central carpark. While private estate owners can opt to install a home charger with the help of Tesla Certified Installers, consumers living in HDB estates cannot enjoy the same luxury. Given that most Singaporeans live in HDB apartments, does this mean that prospective owners are only limited to these three stations? Even though there is a limited number of Tesla V3 Superchargers in Singapore, the Model 3 is compatible with Type 2 AC and CCS2 DC fast-charging stations. This allows drivers living in HDB estates to charge their cars at various third-party charging stations by SP Group, Shell-Greenlots and BlueSG. Image was taken from Shell Greenlots If you’re afraid that there won’t be enough places to charge your vehicle, there is a wide variety of different charging stations powered by various companies across Singapore. With BlueSG having more than 1,000 points across the island, it is safe to say that finding a charging station for your shiny new Tesla will be the least of your worries. Is the cost of maintenance high? Contrary to widely held belief, the cost of maintaining a Model 3 is much more affordable than one thinks. Since Teslas are fully electric, many standard maintenance items do not apply. These include brake jobs, oil and filter changes, accessory belt replacements, engine air filter and fuel filter changes. Image was taken from AsiaOne The recommended routine maintenance includes tire rotation, brake fluid replacement, cabin air filter replacement, windscreen wipers replacement and air-conditioner servicing every two years. Overall, the cost of maintaining a Tesla is cheaper than fuel vehicles in the market. Is a Tesla still worth it? There are still a select few who believe that going electric brings more harm than good. While concerns regarding the cost of a Tesla are still circulating amongst the local driving community, the company has significant plans to expand its offerings and make its luxury sedans more affordable. Coupled with the extensive number of rebates from the government, drivers might find themselves owning a piece of extraordinary technology without paying excessively. At the end of the day, the benefit of owning a Tesla outweighs its cons. Sure, it is a lot of money to invest in a vehicle, but you can’t put a price tag on saving the environment.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
