Feathering of a tyre

If you're finding your tyres are "feathering" (when the tread ribs are worn lower/smoother on one side and higher/sharper on the other) My Auto Shop can get it sorted with a General Inspection. Simply leave as many details about the issue as you can and we will contact local MTA approved mechanics that are qualified to fix the underlying issue. We'll email you quotes for an inspection within 2 working days, and where possible provide an indication as to the likely underlying issue(s) and cost to fix. You can book directly on the My Auto Shop platform in minutes.

How a General Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle using the information you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

When your finding your tyres are "feathering" (when the tread ribs are worn lower/smoother on one side and higher/sharper on the other) its often as a result of a:

  • Poorly aligned wheel
  • Faulty suspension

Popular services linked to a General Inspection:

Reverse Light Bulb Replacement

When you’re reversing out of your driveway, car park or parallel parking in general, it’s good to know what you’re doing. Better yet, it’s good for everyone else to have a clue too! Reversing lights let the world know that you’re having a go.

Fog Light Replacement

In New Zealand, we have plenty of hills, valleys and cool mornings. These are perfect conditions for fog and you need to see where you're going. Fog lights protect you and the drivers around you. There’s no such thing as too much visibility, rather than get into an early morning fender-bender, turn your fog lights on and be safer on the road.

Wiper Motor Replacement

When it’s raining and you’re driving, you want to be able to clear the windscreen of any water. If your wiper motor is broken or malfunctioning, it can lead to a potentially hazardous situation.

Wheel Alignment

Having your wheels aligned correctly is an important part of keeping your vehicle performing optimally. Properly aligned wheels ensure your car handles properly, and therefore increases the life of your tyres. Ever felt that irritating symptom of your car constantly pulling to one side? That’s the cause of misaligned wheels.
