The first wheel alignment and fitment centre in Despatch, S&R Automotive Suspension Specialists, recently opened its doors and invites vehicle owners of small cars to heavy duty trucks, trailers and buses to have their wheel alignment checked here!

Owners Shane and Reg Palframan are seasoned in the wheel and suspension industry and are also co-owners of Kouga Wheel Tech. Their father, Chris Palframan is a qualified petrol and diesel mechanic and has about 50 years of experience in the mechanical trade.

Reg Palframan, who has a MBA degree in business management said, “we can fix any suspension related mechanical problem. If a car or truck is pulling to the left or right, we can set the alignment or diagnose the problem area.

“If there is a noise coming from the front, we can do the diagnostics in terms of telling what exactly is wrong and give a quote. If the customer approves, we will fix the problem.”

Shane said, “Wheel alignment goes out without you even noticing it. It needs to be checked once every sixth months or once every 10 000km’s. Rather pay R150 for wheel alignment than spending a thousand Rand plus on a tyre.”

So if you are not sure whether your vehicle’s alignment is correct, take it to S&R, if no adjustment is required, the exercise will be for free. If its out, they will correct the alignment and save you money on tyre wear and fuel. Their slogan is: “We offer a smooth riding experience!”

S&R is fitted with high quality Snap On equipment, which is recognised worldwide in the wheel alignment and balancing industry. This equipment can carry quite a lot of weight and customers can feel at ease bringing their vehicles to S&R for professional service.

Services & tyres

S&R Automotive services include: wheel alignment, wheel balancing, rotation of tyres, suspension repairs, puncture repairs, tyres, shocks & brakes. Wheel alignment on trucks and trailers can also be done at S&R.

S&R’s shipment of tyres is coming in very soon. There will be new tyres as well as good quality used tyres. So, it is up to the customers to decide what tyres they would like to be fitted.

S&R is at 25 Main Street, Despatch, at the Top Up garage/ CDM Motors premises.
