About Us

34 Years in the Automotive Industry

Manukau Auto & Tyre Centre was started in 1986 by Nigel Stickland, doing mechanical repairs and car servicing, branching into tyres and mag wheels in 1988. Within a short time, we were the market leaders in wheels and tyre sales in Auckland.

As a qualified engineer by trade, Nigel soon recognised the need for specialist alloy wheel repairs and branched into that field in 1990. A full machine shop with specialist wheel repair equipment was set up in a separate workshop.

Through his extensive experience with Mag Wheel Sales and Mag Wheel Repairs Nigel became known as the Mag Wheel Guru.

In 2018; recognising that consumer habits were changing and many people prefer to do their shopping online, Manukau Auto & Tyre Centre launched an online tyre shop called Guru Tyres.


We are selective in what appears on this website.

Tyres must pass a simple test...

Would we want our Family Driving on these?


No one buys tyres for fun, you buy tyres because you need tyres

So we don't do tacky fake discount marketing, our prices are the same consistent low price everyday.
