Our story

Kmart Tyre & Auto Service has long stood as one of Australia’s largest tyre, automotive service and repair businesses. Last year, we announced a nationwide rebrand to mycar in June of 2019. The Kmart Tyre & Auto Service stores adopted a fresh new look under the mycar name, with our locations rebranded by mid-September of that year.

Social responsibility

Environmental responsibility

We understand we have a responsibility to contribute to a sustainable environment. We’re working hard to be as environmentally friendly as possible and are involved in a number of green initiatives across Australia.


We run a recycling program in each of our stores across Australia. We use accredited recycling companies who collect the following waste materials:

  • Tyres
  • Oils, coolants and lubricants
  • Steel
  • Lead weights
  • Batteries
  • Paper
  • We also ensure all water used in our stores is treated, using oily water separators, before being expelled

Our commitment to responsible recycling of end-of-life tyres can be further demonstrated with the participation in the Tyre Stewardship Australia Scheme, and offer FREE tyre disposal with the purchase of any tyre. The aim of the scheme is to reduce the amount of end of life tyres damaging the environment, via landfill, illegal dumping and undesirable export, while increasing the recycling rate of end-of-life tyres. All of our tyres are recycled by Tyrecycle, Australia’s largest tyre collector, recycler and disposer.
