About Us

Manukau Auto & Tyre Centre

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 Stickland 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.

Mag Wheel Guru

Manukau Auto and Tyre Centre is home to the Mag Wheel Guru aka Nigel Stickland. The Guru started the business in 1986, it has undergone many changes to become market leaders in the automotive industry.

You may have heard the Guru’s sometimes hilarious, sometimes strange ads on radio stations such as The Rock and The Sound.

The Guru recommends you check out the Wheel Repairs and Rim Repair sections of our website for some interesting info on what to do if you damage your car’s wheels. He recommends American Made Cooper Tyres if you’re after quality or high-performance tyres without paying inflated European tyre prices.

The Guru is one of the longest serving members of the Mag Wheel and Tyre industry putting him at a distinct advantage at helping you select the right wheels for your classic car. Check out the Photo Gallery for some styles he can do deals on for you.
