About

We’ve got you covered.

Doherty & Clark Tyre Service was established in September 1973 by Frank Doherty and Mick Clark on Hertford Street, Sebastopol. Both partners had experience in the industry before joining forces to become a local Ballarat independent tyre dealer.

Early Days

Over the next ten years the business grew significantly through its range of heavy and domestic vehicle tyres to the stage where  an expansion of the business was necessary.

Moving just next door to their Sebastopol location, Doherty & Clark had a building twice the size and were able to handle the additional load of work coming in from the expanding client base.

Mair St Opens

In 1992, following the great success of the Herford Street store, a city branch was opened on Mair Street, which also became a Bridgestone franchise dealership. The city branch was established to cater for domestic and four-wheel-drive tyres and included a mechanical workshop for additional services such as wheel-alignments and brake repairs.

In the early 2000’s, Doherty & Clark once again expanded its Sebastopol store to the corner block of Hertford Street. This new expansion welcomed the new drive-through feature which could be utilised by vehicles as big as a B-Double, allowing the business to cater to vehicles of all sizes.

Both stores stock high quality products, for vehicles of all sizes, from all the major brands and are fitted with the latest well-maintained equipment. The experienced staff go through regular training to ensure tyres are fitted efficiently and safely.

Several new services have been introduced over the years, including the on-site, pick-up and delivery services. On-site services have been achievable through the introduction of several mobile service vehicles, operated by qualified and experienced staff members.

These vehicles make it possible to fit tyres and complete repairs on your premises rather than going to one of the two service centres. The pick-up/delivery services have minimised the interference to the customer’s day.

Today, Doherty & Clark are proud to boast they remain a locally owned and operated business.

The reputation for the high standards of service and quality of workmanship has been forged over almost 50 years of serving Ballarat and district families and industry
