About Magowan Tyres

Magowan Tyres is a local family business with over 50 years experience in the tyre and motor servicing industry.

Our premises are state of the art, incorporating all of the latest technologies to ensure business is conducted efficiently and to a high level of customer satisfaction. Our retail depots are based in Carrickfergus and Mallusk, the latter also being the home of the head office and the wholesale division.

Motoring Services

MOT Inspection
We have dedicated specialists who can pre-MOT test your car using the latest MAHA technology in accordance with current DVLA standards and regulations.
We offer two different types of service:

    This involves running your car over the rolling road to find any potential faults, with headlight alignment, shocks and brakes. The slip test is also carried out, determining the vehicles general wheel alignment.

    This includes the MAHA test lane plus a mechanic will visually inspect your vehicle to find any potential faults.

Please note MOT inspection is only available in our Mallusk depot.

Exhaust Replacement
We supply and fit high-quality exhaust systems to cars and light commercial vehicles. We stock a huge range of OEM specific and after market exhausts as a direct replacement for the majority of today's cars and light commercial vehicles.

Exhaust problems are not always visible from the outside, it can be that the inside has become damaged or simply reached the end of its life. To check what the problem may be with your vehicle call into either of our depots and our trained technicians will examine your system and offer free advice.

Brake Replacement
Your brakes are the most important safety-critical system fitted to your vehicle and it's essential that they are inspected regularly to ensure they remain in good working order.

We offer a free professional brake check on all cars and vans and are able to offer replacement for over 90% of vehicles. All parts supplied are specified to O.E. Equipment standard and are fully guaranteed for one year.

Wheel Alignment
When wheel alignment is professionally conducted on your vehicle it helps it from pulling to one side or the other. Tyre life is also extended and braking performance is enhanced. You will also save money on fuel by making your car more efficient.

Our highly qualified staff ensure that your vehicle handles and performs exactly as the manufacturer intended. We also offer a bespoke adjustment service. If you have specific requirements then we can set the system to adjust your car accordingly.

Air Con Recharge
An efficient air conditioning system is important all year round. It will keep your car cool in the summer, and your windows de-misted in the winter. Car manufacturers recommend your Air-Con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. Air conditioning is not part of routine vehicle servicing.

We can check your air conditioning system's components and top up the vital liquids which are gradually lost over time. Our air conditioning anti-bacterial deep clean removes harmful bacteria for a safe, pleasant and odour-free environment. Please note we only offer this service in our Carrickfergus depot.

TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)
At Magowan Tyres we replace faulty, damaged or aged TPMS sensors. When the sensor is required our systems allow for cost-effective cloning and reprogramming of premium quality schrader sensors with either a solid or rubber stem.

Blue Light Corghi Wheel Balancing
When a tyre is fitted to a wheel, the completed & inflated assembly will require 'balancing'. This ensures that any imbalances of mass are checked and weights applied to even this out. Failure to balance will often result in a steering wheel vibration at speed and can, over a longer period of time, cause premature wearing of not only the tyre, but other components too!

Commercial Vehicle Maintenance
With over 40 years experience in the tyre industry, we have the knowledge and expertise your business or organisation requires. Our service is geared towards giving today’s modern transport operator a quality service, peace of mind, reduced downtime and most importantly value for money.

Our range of services can be built around your business to give you the complete tyre management package which will help to control and reduce your tyre spend by ensuring that you get the most out of your investment in rubber right across your fleet.

Vehicle services we offer

Corghi Balancing
The main advantages of the Off Vehicle Wheel Balancer are that you are able to static and dynamically balance a truck wheel and rim. We also have a closer inspection of the tyre and rim to look for any problems that may be causing the out of balance. We can generally handle tyres up to 46” and rims up to 26” diameter and from 4.5” to 18” wide.
  • Computerised Alignment
  • Puncture Repair
  • Tyre Regrooving

Fleet Maintenance
Here at Magowan Tyres we work with you to maximise mileage per tyre and fuel economy, as close monitoring of your tyre spend saves your business money in the long-term. We believe our responsibility begins, not ends, when a tyre is fitted and that is why we do all that we can to prolong the life of every tyre we fit. This is achieved through the implementation of a range of commercial tyre services, including; re-grooves, turn-on-rims, pressure checks and much more, all with the ultimate aim of reducing the long-term operating costs of every vehicle.

I had four new tyres fitted this morning, in-and-out in no time. As always the service was fantastic. I no longer look around at other companies prices as Magowans have always kept me right in terms of spec/price.

Just back from here for the second time in three weeks. Keeping two toddlers amused whilst getting tyres changed is no fun, but the play area is a great idea and they love it, to the extent that Evan wasn't for going home! Staff are always very friendly, thank you!

Wow, wasn't expecting them to install a anti-sway/roll bar on my GTI without hesitation. Mine snapped, Don't know how, lol but it did.
FYI, they spotted the break in the bar, not me! Keen eyes as well!
Went to Magowans in Carrick as I thought the noise was coming from one of the brake pads (noise only came about since getting brakes changed).
Guy took under an hour to switch out the broken one with the new one. Charged pennies for labour (I supplied the part). My hat off to the entire Carrickfergus crew, they were courteous, honest and just got the job done! Keep up the hard work lads

My 18 year old son went in last week asking if he needed new tyres for the car as it was going for mot (I'd told him he needed 2 front ones) the fella looked at it and told him no he'd about 6 months left on them. Totally delighted how truthful they were instead of trying to flog him new tyres. He'll defo be going back to get them when they're needed ??

I've used magowans for new tyres before and they were great .. I thought I needed 3 tyres but the guy told me I only needed 1 at that time and I could hold off for a while.
My car failed the mot tonight on the handbrake and I used the Facebook messenger to see if they did handbrakes. Considering it's Saturday night, facebook said they respond within the hour. I wasn't expecting a response until the next day but within 2 mins I got a response and the guy (Barry) booked me in to check if I need it tightened or a new one.
This place is great. I would totally recommend it ... You even get free tea, coffee and biscuits while you wait!!
