About the TDAFA

Tyre Dealers' And Fitment Centre Association

TDAFA represents the importers and distributors of major tyre brands both locally manufactured and imported, in compliance with SABS standards and motor manufacturer specifications.

TDAFA also represents the leading tyre retreaders in South Africa. Strict compliance with the TDAFA's accreditation criteria and applicable legislation ensures the production of quality and safe retreaded tyres.

TDAFA draws your attention to refrain from conducting business with unscrupulous hawkers trading on the roadside as these hawkers in the main sell badly worn passenger tyres which have been illegally re-grooved to give an appearance of sufficient tread depth whereas, re-grooving cuts into the carcass of a passenger tyre converting it into a death trap, which practice is illegal.

In the interests of your own safety and that of your family, look for an RMI accredited tyre dealer and fitment centre to ensure that you acquire the best product and service money can buy.

TDAFA members in addition to selling new and quality retreaded tyres, offer professional wheel alignment, balancing, puncture repair and other tyre related services such as mag wheel sales, shock absorber- and tow-bar fitment.

Your tyres are your vehicles only contact with the road - don't risk it! You cannot afford to do anything else but settle for the best!
