The Tumbi Tyres story

After many years of industry experience Steve ‘Tumbi’ Corney decided to open Tumbi Tyres in 1987. His aim was to provide an alternative to the “big chain” style stores for the motorists of the Central Coast.

Motorists Of the Central Coast in NSW

The original store was in Bon Mace Close, Tumbi Umbi, and after only a year of trading the success of the business saw the need to move to bigger premises in another building on the same street. Steve grew the business and continually diversified the range of products and services.

In 2000, the opportunity arose to purchase land near Mingara and the time was right to build a bigger and better purpose built workshop. The new building was designed specifically to the needs of a tyre & mechanical workshop with four tyre service bays, three mechanical service bays, a truck fitting bay, showroom and air-conditioned customer lounge as well as ample storage on a mezzanine level. This location on Mingara Drive is where the business still trades today.

Steve has a great level of knowledge and experience in the automotive industry having now owned and operated Tumbi Tyres almost four decades. With experience in all aspects of mechanical work, wheel alignments, tyre fitting and sales, he still oversees the day to day running of the workshop. More recently, he has also incorporated Trek & Bash car preparation into his busy schedule.

After experimenting with expanding and opening other stores in Long Jetty and Sydney, Steve realised the importance of the one shop, one owner theory. All resources and efforts are now focused on the one store in Tumbi Umbi. Having all energy focussed on the one shop, ensures that our staff can give our customers the fastest and best service possible.

Tumbi Tyres has built a great team of mechanics and tyre technicians who are experienced in a broad range of areas including: truck tyre fitting, 4WD specialist & trip preparation, mechanical repairs and wheel alignments.

Absolutely incredible service, speed and customer service.We were coming home from a surfing trip and blew a boat tyre in the middle of nowhere.This was on a sunday afternoon and we tried every 24hr service, tire or mechanic and even 24hr towing companies with no one willing to help on a sunday until someone meantioned Tumbi tyres.Not only were they quick and did an awsome job but the tyres were cheaper than if i had purchased off the shelf in sydney.Brad our mechanic that showed up should be doing F1 pits, Crazy fast, super helpfuland also happily answered our amateur questions.Cheers Brad your a bloody legend owe you a beer mate.p.s I nearly never leave reviews good or bad but These guys absolutely deserve 6 stars.regardskris
Woke to a flat tyre this week, in the rain, no way to get to work or change the tyre. Spoke to the guys at Tumbi Tyres, even though they had a full day they had someone at my house and tyre changed within the hour (NRMA couldn't get there till late afternoon). Very grateful, thank you guys !!!I was at work before 9.20am and their service and professionalism was 5 star.Went in today to get the repaired puncture tyre refitted and a pink slip. Had me on my way within half hour, didn't charge me for unnessacry things like so many companies do. The staff are lovely, they went out of their way to help me when I was stranded and so friendly and efficient today. I'll definitely be using them in future, highly rexommend !
Good tyres service & great customer service!
Has my tyres filled with nitrogen, staff were friendly and efficient. Highly recommend
Had a tire blowout in Tumbi Umbi last week. After changing the tire, I drove here to have it fixed up. Quick and efficient they had me fixed up in 20 minutes.Shout out to Mark and Allan. Good service 👍
Tumbi Tyres is an amazing service. I got a flat tyre, they were so helpful on the phone. Made a stressful situation, a lot less stressful. Came and sorted out my car within the hour. Then fitted me in for a wheel alignment at short notice. Very friend staff in the office as well as the guy that fixed my tyre. So professional and willing to help. Amazing service. Will only use these guys on the coast going forward.
I’ve had Dan fit tyres on a vehicle and camper trailer. Great communication and service. Highly recommended.
Excellent customer service this morning. From the reception desk to the staff member that did the rego check the courtesy and professional friendly attitude was amazing!!Couldn't recommend Tumbi tyres more I would give a 10 star rating if I could.
Visited Tumbi Tyres this morning for advice on a leaking tyre. I was attended to immediately and the tyre was repaired in less than 30 minutes. I was so impressed by their service and professionalism. Thank you!
Had a tyre go on my truck 1.50pm on a Saturday had a new tyre on the truck by 3 even though they said it would be 2 hours before they got there great job highly recommended 👍 and the jingle on triple m was why I remembered them thanks again guys👍
Always easy! Love the fact they can come to you.
Great service. Great prices...
I required three new tyres for my caravan, prior to us taking off on a long journey. From initial contact with Mark through to fitting by Jackson, the whole process was seamless. Mark immediately identified the correct tyre for our needs and with in three days of initial contact the tyres were expertly fitted by Jackson. No fuss, no towing to a tyre dealer. Pleasing thing was how quiet Jackson worked. No noisey rattle guns etc. Will be using these guys again when I need new tyres for my tow vehicle.Competitive tyre pricing too!
I called up last minute to see if I could get a pink slip done. They were very accommodating and fit me in. Their customer service is fantastic. I would recommend these guys for sure. 🙂
Hi was in last Saturday for tyre repair on my MG the service was fantasticThank youChris
Had Dan come out to my house, replaced all 4 tyres, promptly and professionally and in swift timing.Compared to big brands they were competitive, that of which I couldn’t wait the 2 weeks for a booking and gladly paid the premium call out fee which was extremely great when dealing with young children: I’ve tried to be booked in to 3 other super store *** quickfits and they left me for 3 hours for 4 tyres.This was by far my best experience, those in the reviews complaining are just self centred, self entitled noisy goats.100 percent satisfied, quick, easy and exactly what I needed at a competitive price.Definitely will use again!Keep it up guys, didn’t just save time and money but potentially the lives of my family.You’re a blessing in disguise, hope you all have a wonderful life.100% recommend.

Brad did a great job replacing 5 tyres for me. 4 tyres on my Corolla & 1 tyre on my caravan. Some clown/ clowns slashed tyres on both vehicles on the night of 12 Jan 2024!! Thanks Brad & the Tumbi Tyre crew. Great prices too!!!

Response from the owner: Hi there, we are sorry that you had a bad experience and if our company policy wasn’t accurately explained. Unfortunately we are unable to fit Tyres that aren’t purchased through our business or affiliated online stores.
Got a flat on the F3 without a Jack. Tumbi came to the rescue in no time at all and had us on our way within the hour. Top service.
Response from the owner: Thank you for your 5 star review! We really appreciate your support. We were more than happy to assist you with your tyre. Glad to hear you were content with the service! Looking forward to seeing you next time.
Had 6 tyres fitted to 2 vehicles yesterday. Sales, quoting, ordering, delivery and on-site fitting was great! Excellent price as well.Difference for me was, Danny torqued the wheel nuts by hand. Tyre fitters normally just use rattle guns, over tightening to the point where you can't get them undone by yourself.

Tumbi Tyres were excellent throughout the whole process. I had a flat tyre and on very short notice Brad arrived and replaced the tyres with fresh ones. Done within 2 hours of phone call and at a reasonable price imo. Efficient and no damage on rims during the process. He should try out for pit crew sometime 🙂 In all seriousness thanks very much for getting me out of a stressful situation.

I am very happy with the prompt and professional service I received today (Sunday 13/8/2023) after a flat tire needed to be replaced- mobile van travelled from Newcastle to Ourimbah within 90 minutes and the tyre was replaced and the pleasant chap check the pressure on the other 3 - I felt very comforted that I would be travelling safely back to Sydney- I would recommend. Thank you all very much 😊. Friendly, polite and professional.

Tumbi Tyres are such a trustworthy and friendly company. Kaz, Joel and the team always over deliver.Yesterday I needed to drop my van off a day earlier than I had booked it in and they unexpectedly serviced it on that day to save me having to shuffle around car seats for daycare pickup!Service was also only a few dollars more than quoted on the phone.Thank you Tumbi Tyres!

Went there and they hooked me up with new tyres on the spot, no drama.
Response from the owner: Hi Sarah, thanks for your positive review! We appreciate the support.
Thank you Brad and Tumbi Tyres for the amazing after hours mobile service you provided on Saturday night! Got a flat tyre at 5pm on a Saturday night (with no spare) in Cessnock on the way home to Sydney. Roadside assistance was not able to do anything - only able to offer towing to a tyre centre (which was obviously closed and likely not to reopen until Monday). Was fortunate enough to find Tumbi Tyres after hours mobile service on Google and avoided being stranded over the weekend. Absolutely amazing service!! Can’t recommend it enough. Thank you Brad, you were an absolute lifesaver!!!
Response from the owner: Hi Nina, thank you for the 5-star review! We are so happy to hear that we helped you in your time of need. We appreciate the support and are glad you had a good experience with us!
11/10 would get a screw in my tyre again just for their amazing service and prices!
Response from the owner: Thanks for the great review Kieran, we are so happy to have assisted you and appreciate you supporting us. Hope to see you again next time.
Had issues with other mechanics recently. These guys really went out of their way for me and fixed the other mechanic's errors as well as sorting out new issues without a fuss. Will definitely be making them my new mechanic. Thanks team
