Meet your local tyre expert…

Loyal customers and dedicated staff are the driving force behind successful family-owned business Ryanie for Tyres.

Established in 2000 by owners Brendan and Sharon Ryan, what began as a small business with one mobile unit has now grown into a two-location operation with 16 staff, all with extraordinary skills and sales knowledge.

Warwick-based mobile service fitter Joe Ashton began his career with Ryanie for Tyres in 2018 and has quickly become an integral member of the team.

He spends his days servicing vehicles across the Southern Downs, including in Warwick, Clifton, Allora, Killarney and Stanthorpe, as well as in Aratula and Kalbar.

“I assist people roadside, or I’ll go to a person’s place and check their vehicle over… I check pressures and I do a lot of farm stuff,” said Joe.

“My favourite part of the job is the whole tractor side of things.

“And getting out and meeting different people and seeing new sceneries every day.”

Joe, an arborist by trade, learned tyre fitting from scratch when he joined the business. He is known by customers and colleagues for his hardworking nature, his industriousness and his ability to mend and repair things around the workshop.

“I work outside of the workshop probably five of six days a week,” he said.

“And I’ve made a lot of new contacts over the years, doing four or five jobs a day.”

“Things have expanded a bit here and I’ve taken on more responsibility.”

Like the rest of the staff at Ryanie for Tyres, Joe is committed to listening to and identifying his customers’ needs so that he can provide them with the best advice and service possible.

It is exactly this commitment that has seen the business thrive for more than 20 years.

Ryanie for Tyres offers a wide range of products and services at both its Clifton and Warwick locations, including: wheelbarrow, passenger, 4WD, light truck, truck, trailer, tractor and farm implement tyres; trailers, batteries and rubber matting; inspections, installations, balancing, repairs, rotation and wheel alignments; emergency services, free consultations, free local pick up, free local delivery, free quotes, mobile services, onsite services and roadside services.
