Tyre Industry Impacted by Coronavirus 

The tyre industry has been impacted by Coronavirus in Australia. Moreover, the impact of COVID-19 has made it extremely difficult for the Gold Coast community to source specific tyre specifications and brands. Faced with strict lockdowns on manufacturing from some of our suppliers, we ordered ahead. Therefore, we have a large range of hard to source stock in our Burleigh Heads warehouse ready for our eager customers. 

Ultimately, the industry slowdown has created a huge backlog of orders for suppliers who are located in a country that has been placed under lockdown laws. This means you probably have been waiting a long time for a certain tyre or will have difficulty in the coming months. 

At the beginning of the pandemic we got in first meaning we may have the tyre you are looking for. We have an abundance of limited tyre stock ready to be fitted to your vehicle. Our available and hard to source tyre stock includes, Nitto, Maxxis, BFGoodrich, Black Bear and Nexen. 

Future Availability 

We do not predict we will have any difficulty in 2021 in obtaining requested tyres. Most factories and automotive suppliers are back to business working through the backlog of orders. However, we do recommend to strike while the iron is hot and grab your specific tyre with limited availability over the next coming months. Keep an eye out for second hand tyres at Bud’s Tyres while the tyre industry is impacted by coronavirus. 

Give us a call on 0402666707 to put in an order or request stock availability. Our team can guide you on alternative options or give you an estimated arrival date. We currently have an oversupply of Nitto, Maxxis, BFGoodrich, Black Bear and Nexen. We have a selection some of the last few remaining tyres in Queensland and Australia.
