The MSA Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship (or BCCC) may be one of the toughest motorsport arenas in the UK, but it’s still no match for the unstoppable traction and durability of Toyo’s Open Country All Terrain tyres. As fitted to the Jewson-Isuzu UK works rally truck driven by Jason Sharpe, the tyre proved to be a huge part of the team’s success in taking the overall production class title this year.

Commenting on the performance of the Toyo rubber, Jason said, “The Toyo Open Country All Terrain really has been an integral part of our success during this first season. Grip and control is everything in rallying and Toyo’s Open Country case really delivers both, 

In support of Road Safety Week, Michelin, has created a series of hard-hitting videos designed to show teenagers the importance of staying safe on the roads.

The collection of thought-provoking videos, which used life-like puppets to tell the stories of young drivers’ harrowing real-life experiences, was launched across its social media channels from Monday 17 November until Friday 21 November. Each video focused on a different theme centred around dangerous driving, such as speeding, drink driving and distractions on the road.

Corinne Li, road safety project manager at Michelin, said: “Young drivers are the most at-risk age group on the roads, so we feel it’s important we reach out to them to highlight the consequences of their actions as they begin to take to the roads. Educating young people about the importance of road safety is just one way we can help them to protect themselves, and others, while they are out and about.”

Blackcircles.com has received one of the highest Net Promoter Scores (NPS) of 2014, best-of-class against its industry peers and also ahead of well-known international brands like Amazon, Apple, Mercedes-Benz and Aldi. The company’s NPS of 84 is based on customers’ likelihood to recommend a brand to others and is calculated as the percentage of customers who are ‘Promoters’, rating the business 9 or 10 on a zero-to-ten point scale, minus the percentage who are ‘Detractors’, rating 6 or lower. It is viewed as the leading customer experience metric and provides a strong indication of a company’s relationship with its customers. The company has a good track record in this area, having scored 89 in the 2013 survey.

Mike Welch, CEO and founder of Blackcircles.com, said: “From the very beginning our goal was to create a clean, simple and trustworthy tyre retail business that put customers at the heart of its decision-making and strategy – setting us apart from the commonplace bad practice which epitomised the industry at the time. 

“It’s those customer referrals that have driven our growth from 200 customers in year one to almost 1 million today and we’re hugely grateful to them for choosing us over the competition."

Giti Tire has thanked its GT Radial Performance Centres (GTPCs) for going the extra mile during October’s TyreSafe Tyre Safety Month, with many undertaking an “exceptional level of activities”.

Among many examples Westgate Tyres in Morecambe and Ackworth Autoserv in Pontefract held ladies safety days while Tyrz in Macclesfield attended local schools to spread the message. In addition Craig Motors in Hawick, Roxburgshire held regular open days to promote safe car maintenance.

Brian McDermott, Managing Director UK for Giti Tire, said: “The engagement we receive from our GTPC network is second-to-none, and the exceptional level of activities that took place throughout the country is testament to their commitment and passion to customer service.

“While Tyre Safety Month gives us a focus as an industry these important messages need to be delivered to drivers every month of the year, and we are committed to working with all independent garages to really drive safety home.”

Investing in a second set of wheels and tyres for the colder months is an extra cost that UK motorists are reluctant to commit to according to new research undertaken by tyre manufacturer Falken. Despite the widely accepted safety benefits of winter tyres, over a quarter of male and female respondents stated the higher cost was a reason not to opt for the cold weather rubber. 20 percent of those questioned suggested the UK’s milder climate as a reason why they would not buy winter tyres this year.

This was closely followed by 20 percent of drivers saying they didn’t need them for their car and a similar percentage (19 percent) claiming it was ‘too much hassle to change’ to winter tyres. Of particular note was just eight percent of drivers hadn’t heard of winter tyres, suggesting the awareness of cold weather tyres was more widespread than just a few years ago.

“The results surprised us, particularly the belief that the UK climate was sufficiently mild enough not to need cold weather tyres,” says Falken’s UK director Matt Smith. “Exacta weather is predicting a very cold winter and consumers seem to have forgotten the conditions that caused travel disruption from just three or four years ago.”

Landsail tyres are reaching new heights with the production of their first ever aircraft tyre.

The new tyre will be used on Boeing 737-600, 737-700, 737-800 and 737-900 aircrafts that have a maximum take-off speed of 362km/h. The tyres four wide vertical grooves provide optimum all weather performance, effectively preventing lateral water slide on wet runways. The unique tread formulation is reinforced with high abrasion resistance carbon black, for superior take off and landing efficiency.

The new aircraft tyre caps a hugely successful year for Landsail and further demonstrates the brand’s growth. The accelerated investment in engineering, production capabaility, and R&D has led to continuous improvement in the quality of their tyres across the whole range. By the end of 2015 annual capacity will increase from 15 million pieces per year to 25 million.

From November 2014, all new models of passenger vehicles will be required by law to have a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) installed. TPMS has become a legal requirement after a high rate of accidents were discovered to relate to tyre malfunction - with around 1,200 road casualties reported in 2011 alone. 

TPMS was conceived to reduce the number of traffic accidents caused by under-inflated tyres by identifying early on when the performance of the tyre is failing. Working in close accordance with the vehicle, the TPMS monitors the air pressure of tyres, reporting real-time tyre pressure information to the vehicle driver.

Leigh Stote, Sales and Marketing Director at Tyre Bay Direct said, “The number of cars that have a TPMS system has risen steadily since 2002 but with the new law coming into force as of January 2015, a car fitted with a faulty TPMS system will automatically be failed at MOT inspection."

The growing importance of correct wheel alignment was highlighted at the recent Skills Show with competitors in the SkillAuto competition tackling a series of vehicle repair tasks, including a component change and subsequent full four wheel alignment check.

The competition was eventually won by Callum Byrne who among other tasks, successfully completed the wheel alignment check, using the latest Hunter HawkEye Elite TD aligner, supplied by wheel servicing equipment supplier Pro-Align.

Preparing for the SkillsAuto challenge was no mean feat for the competitors. In addition to attending a familiarisation session at Pro-Align’s Northamptonshire training facility, they also had to prepare themselves for other tests such as gearbox repairs, electrical repairs and vehicle diagnostics.

Prominent tyre age legislator  Frances Molloy has moved significantly closer to achieving her determined quest to outlaw the use of tyres over the age of ten years old on all Public Service Vehicles.

The visit to Westminster for Frances follows her strong presentation at the Brityrex Show and her support from local Liverpool Walton MP Steve Rotherham who presented a Ten Minute Rule Bill (Bill 77) to the UK Parliament back in July calling for the age of a tyre to join tread depth and external condition as part of an annual vehicle check.

Bill 77 will receive a second reading in the House on the 23rd January 2015 plus Steve Robinson has organised a meeting with MEP's on the 18th November in Brussels to support the Bill.

The UK’s first deferred finance offer on new tyres has been launched by Blackcircles.com.

Mike Welch – Founder and Managing Director of Blackcircles.com, said: “We have launched this finance offer as we understand how expensive this time of year can be and for many of our customers an unexpected bill can make or break their Christmas celebrations."

 

After carrying aero engines and airfreight over 400,000 km across Europe on a set of Semperit M470 truck tyres, County Kildare-based haulier, GK Kelly Transport Limited says the tyres have delivered exceptional value for money plus great traction during extreme winter conditions.

With a fleet of 11 trucks, owner, Gary Kelly, completed the 400,000 km himself in just over two and a half years in his Volvo F80 tractor unit, which itself has travelled over 4.5 million km. The tyres undertake a typical journey such as an 8,000km roundtrip from Ireland to Eastern Europe usually carrying spare parts for aeroplanes being maintained there.

“I’m extremely impressed with the durability of Semperit tyres, and can particularly recommend them for their traction during winter. They’ve often kept me going through deep snow in Poland and Bulgaria, when other trucks have been stuck without enough grip,” said Gary Kelly.

TIP Trailer Services has extended its existing truck tyre contract with Goodyear until the end of 2016, when the two companies will celebrate 10 years of working together.

The contract, which covers the supply, service and management of tyres for TIP Trailer Services commenced in 2006. Its further renewal underlines the confidence that the company places in the quality products, services and solutions provided to them by Goodyear for nearly a decade.

Tyre Bay Direct's team are always brainstorming fresh ideas to keep their customers happy by not only providing the best quality products and service but offering that little bit more than other suppliers.

From regular introductory offers and special discounts to fun competitions and giveaways Tyre Bay Direct are always keen to add an element of fun to the daily 'chores'. With Christmas around the corner they wanted to introduce something a little different from the regular offers and there couldn't have been a more perfect time to do so.

Bandvulc and its tyre management arm, Bandvulc Plus+, have enjoyed a successful period of contract re-negotiations and extensions with its existing clients and is also pleased to report significant success in its new customer portfolio for 2014.

“We’ve seen a very successful retention and continuation on our key contracts,” comments Phil West, Commercial Director for the Bandvulc Group adding, “our product range continues to grow which, combined with the delivery of services across the Group, means we have an industry-leading offering which I believe the clients value."

“Our plans for 2015 are expansive and will see the business grow into other tyre and non-tyre areas of the delivery supply chain. Our independence also allows us to consider and benchmark all new tyre manufacturers so that we achieve the best and most cost-effective solution for our clients. This flexibility is invaluable as it allows flexibility across a range of products,” concluded Phil.

Giti Tire has released full details of its new GT Radial Champiro FE1 all-round comfort passenger car tyre, which has just come to market throughout Europe.

The tyre, which was officially unveiled at Reifen Essen (May 2014), is available in 18 sizes from 15” to 17” and speed indexes T to W.

The Champiro FE1, which will become one of the biggest sellers within the brand’s portfolio, has been designed to deliver superior lifetime and advanced wet performance, and features optimal water dispersion and a new compound to reduce heat generation and improve tyre rolling resistance.

GT Radial is exclusively distributed throughout the UK by Micheldever Tyre Services, who have sole supply rights for passenger car, 4x4 and light truck tyres.

If music be the food of love, then Firestone hopes that motorists will dine out on a new rock and roll based sales promotion, which has been launched for the first time.

The historic brand has been brought back to life in style in 2014 with new iconic marketing material, a Firestone Destination HP product launch in Valencia and an innovative Indy500 themed retail competition. 

And now, Firestone has created a ‘Rock On Then Roll Out’ sales campaign until November 30, where more than £100,000 worth of iTunes will be up for grabs, along with a chance to win a trip to The Brit Awards or a separate VIP gig.

The melody making theme offers a sneak insight into the journey that Firestone will be embarking upon in 2015, with a number of exciting announcements to be made shortly.

To amplify the rocking new promotion, Firestone has also purchased a fleet of Fiat500 cars for participating dealers to utilise, all boasting eye-catching branding.

Centre managers can offer them as courtesy cars or to incentivise staff, with Firestone’s aim being to spread the word amongst motorists.

Listening closely to the demands of customers all over the world, specialists at Alliance Tire Group’s own Research and Development Centres have developed yet another innovative approach to increasing agricultural efficiency: The 396 MPT and 382 MPT high-speed flotation radial tyres with speeds of up to 100kph for agricultural trucks. “These high-speed low pressure flotation tyres offer the best-in-class solution because they allow for efficient work, both in the field and on the road. These tires show a lower rate of tread wear on the road: That ensures longer tire life and is one important purchase criterion for our customers,” says Dr. George Ronai, Head of Development Department, ATG.

“In addition to high speeds on the road for sustained periods, the new flotation radial tyres offer low rolling resistance and accordingly reduced fuel use during all transport tasks. And, equally important for operators who look for flexible all-round solutions, these tyres are versatile enough to be also used for all kinds of agricultural applications such as spreading, spraying etc.," said Angelo Noronha, Head  – After Market, Europe.

Bridgestone believes that its flexible tyre service, combined with consistency of supply, were two underlying reasons behind its successful showing at the Euro Bus Expo 2014, where significant new fleet business was secured.

The world’s largest tyre manufacturer kept its messages simple at the NEC over the three day event, which resonated with a number of bus and coach operators, some of whom will now be embarking on their own journeys with the brand.

Instead of talking solely about tyres, Bridgestone majored on its bespoke, personal service where its operations managers work as closely as possible with each and every fleet.

Bridgestone’s fleet operations manager Matt Millington said that the Euro Bus Expo presence could mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the bus and coach team.

The Swansea Harris Brothers Tyres centres have worked tirelessly by developing a number of successful money raising schemes which has reached the £330,000 total in just over 10 years. ”We are so grateful for the support of the team at Harris Brothers," said Helen Bowden, station director at The Wave and Swansea Sound. “The money raised has not only been so valuable in helping a variety of local children’s charities, the fact that the company has maintained its support for over a decade is extraordinary."

More than 62 per cent of the UK’s drivers are unaware of the legal minimum tyre tread depth and one in ten (12 per cent) haven’t checked their tyres in the last year, according to new research carried out by leading used car website NFDA Trusted Dealers.

Despite the success of October’s fifth annual Tyre Safety Month, the research, which surveyed 1,000 motorists on how regularly they undertake essential tyre maintenance, showed little more than a third of the road users know that the minimum tyre tread depth should be 1.6mm.  When equated to the 30m motorists on British roads this means more than 18m drivers have no idea if their tyres are roadworthy.

The survey also revealed a shocking 12.4 per cent of drivers last checked their tyre tread depth more than a year ago - even though fortnightly checks are advised to ensure safety and avoid potential fines of up to £2,500 plus three penalty points for illegal tyres.  

At the inaugural Irish Auto Trade Awards, which were announced at a gala dinner in the Citywest Hotel in Dublin last Sunday night, local company, Modern Tyres, was awarded one of the top accolades.

Toyo Tire  launched a brand promotional video featuring prominent footballers Montolivo, Ménez, Rami and Honda from A.C. Milan competing in a city street race against an Audi R8. The two-and-a-half-minute video, complete with a surprise ending, went live on YouTube on November 12, 2014.

The four famous footballers dribble and pass a soccer ball to each other through the streets and rooftops of Milan with masterful skill. The Audi R8, equipped with “Proxes T1 Sport” high-performance tyres, drives through the same streets with a soccer ball buckled in at shotgun. Racing in style, it heads for the same goal as the footballers. Who will win?  Milan holds its collective breath.

Giti Tire has described its Euro Bus Expo debut a success, generating several European-wide sales leads and citing significant interest in both the GT Radial GSR225 Combi Road and GAU861 all-position urban city-bus tyres.

Peter Foulkes, Marketing Director Europe - Commercial Tires at Giti Tire, said: “The decision to present definitely paid dividends, not only has it opened several doors, we have secured a number of tests and cemented our position as a true partner and supporter of the coach and bus sector.

“Several attendees commented on the breadth and depth of what is a comprehensive passenger transport portfolio, and with our mid-market position and value-added support services, such as GT Assist, we have created a compelling argument for GT Radial for operators across Europe.”

Carlisle United may have lost a seven-goal thriller with Burton Albion at Brunton Park last week in the League Two encounter, but the city’s Pirelli site became the penalty kings!

Andrew Marshall, Chris Tibbetts, Chris Maleney and Martin Moore slotted home their spot kicks against Tom Fowler, Carlisle United’s YTS goalkeeper. Their heroics saw Pirelli Carlisle come out victorious against Pirelli Burton and Denton Tyre Centre.

Luca Negri, industrial director of Pirelli UK, said: “Hats off to our Pirelli team from Carlisle - they held their nerve to claim the glory! I think everyone will agree that the penalty challenge was so much fun.”

The fun and frolics were all in the name of a good cause. Money raised through donations on the day of the game went to benefit a local Carlisle charity Eden Valley Hospice. Pirelli and Denton Tyre Centre also kindly donated signed footballs from both Burton Albion and Carlisle United to the charity.

2014 sees the arrival of Z – a tyre which stands apart from the crowded tyre market by delivering an unbeatable combination of performance, visual appeal and value for money.  A tyre whose focus is set firm on the ‘high-performance’ European stage and whose capabilities rank amongst the best – not only in terms of value, but in terms of construction quality and road handling.

With an initial ‘Phase 1’ programme of over 40 dimensions, Z has been designed to offer an unbeatable combination of precise handling and fuel economy for the driving enthusiast. 

Not only is wet performance enhanced by the latest breakthroughs in silica tread technology, but with Z, this will not to be at the expense of fuel economy since European labels will also feature a ‘B’ or ‘C’ grade, ensuring that the Z tyre range offers an optimum performance/fuel economy combination.
