Target Tyres has become the first independent retailer in Guernsey to join TyreSafe, the UK’s not-for-profit organisation campaigning to raise tyre safety awareness. Target Tyres is a specialist in tyres, exhausts, brakes and batteries, and is one of the largest tyre outlets on the island.

By joining TyreSafe, Target Tyres has access to TyreSafe’s resources to support its tyre safety campaigns, and materials for customers and staff.

“Safety is our top priority and the entire Target team uses its combined expertise to help keep our islander customers as risk-free as possible on the roads,” said Target Tyres Managing Director David Whalley. “Tyres are an essential safety component and we back that up with no obligation, free safety checks that have helped build our reputation as providing excellent customer service.

Goodyear is re-launching its commercial vehicle website across all countries in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in local languages to help fleet operators select the truck tyres and truck tyre-related services to suit their operations and reduce operating costs.  The new designed website truck.goodyear.eu, which is available now, also gives useful advice to help vehicle operators obtain an optimum return in investment from their tyres.

The new site is a mine of information about Goodyear as premium truck tyre manufacturer and beyond.  For example, the Quality section gives valuable insight into the unique technologies and innovations that Goodyear has introduced.  It explains the benefits of these technologies and further helps explain how to understand the many important technical aspects of commercial vehicle tyres such as, for example, load and speed indices.

Under the heading of ‘On the Pulse of Tyre Technology’, Falken Tyre will present its extensive portfolio of tyres for cars, SUVs, vans and trucks at Reifen, the international trade show held in Essen from 24th– 27th May 2016.

Highlights at the Falken stand will include the brand’s flagship model, AZENIS FK510. This ultra-high performance tyre was launched in the spring of 2016 and has already received ‘Highly Recommended’ test ratings from German car magazine Autozeitung. The stand will also feature the AZENIS FK453CC SUV tyre, which received a ‘Good’ test rating from AutoBild Allrad magazine for its ultra-short braking distances, low drive-by noise and competitive pricing.

The Falken stand is located in Hall 3, No. 3B10. While Falken presents the latest products and technologies, the Falken Motorsports team will be preparing for the highlight of the motorsports season. On 28th– 29th May the Falken Porsche will take part in the legendary 24-hour race, held at one of the world’s toughest racetracks, the Nürburgring.

It can’t be argued against that the growth of Chinese brands, in the UK market over the last few years, has been impressive and those who chose to ignore it, were left behind a quickly developing new trend in the market.

The desire of Drivers to have value based alternatives to the standard norm was met by an opportunity seen by Wholesalers and Retailers, to offer more and more Chinese products and consequently, an influx of new brands/ manufacturers entered the market.

What followed was a rise in the Chinese brands with some entering the Top Ten manufacturers stats or, in the case of Pirelli, buying Premium labels to further establish themselves and create a new Chinese empire within the Tyre Industry.

The growth of the Chinese segment was fuelled, at a time when the economy and financial outlook of many households drove Drivers to downgrade their needs or be influenced by cheaper product that had seemingly very comparable tyre labelling scores and were offered in abundance.

Two new product ranges from Motor Wheel Service Distribution (MWSD) will make their show debut at Truckfest Peterborough – the forged aluminium weight saving axle wheels and the accessories collection.

Visitors to the stand will also be able to pick-up a free, comprehensive technical guide as well as information on the company’s lauded commercial vehicle wheel safety campaign, key elements of which are included in the impending EU Roadworthiness Act.

Location: East of England Showground, Peterborough,  Dates: May 1-2, 2016

Stand: R19

TyreWORK is the first commercial vehicle and tyre management service provider to go ‘live’ with the new UniSerV platform which has been extended with e-jobsheet, improving its operational agility, and increasing its administrative efficiency in data processing from the field.

Dan Cooper, operations manager at TyreWORK, says, “We’ve been a CAM UniSerV user for two years so the next logical step in our process development was to integrate with e-jobsheet to achieve greater efficiencies, particularly with third party contract holders, and continue speeding up data processing by essentially connecting our technicians to our customers.”

The inaugural Automechanika Birmingham exhibition, to be staged at the NEC from the 7th to the 9th June, has become a truly international automotive event with 38% of exhibitors representing 30 key automotive countries around the globe. Major supply chain and aftermarket manufacturers are represented.

“The motor industry in Britain is proving to be one of the most successful and innovative globally,” said event director, Simon Albert. “It is, therefore, no wonder that major automotive supply companies are anxious to develop working relationships with UK vehicle manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers. By the same token, the number of global companies attracted by the successful aftermarket in the UK is again proof of the buoyancy of the UK economy."

Maxxis has announced the launch of its first ever run flat tyre, the M36+ into the European market. The official unveiling of the innovative new M36+ to the European aftermarket is due to take place at next month’s world leading tyre industry event, Reifen, and will affirm the manufacturers commitment to continuous innovation for mid-range buyers. 

The M36+ run flat tyre delivers outstanding performance in wet and dry weather conditions due to its world leading technology and design. Its advanced bead filler rubber compound has been designed to minimise heat generation and tyre area deformation to secure the tyre and wheel assembly, helping to improve durability under zero inflation pressure, ultimately offering drivers a comfortable ride. Its construction design and rubber compound forms the foundation of the Maxxis Run-Flat System (MRS), providing drivers with optimal safety when driving. It has been developed with Maxxis’ latest rayon body ply material which delivers increased heat resistance, maintains tyre integrity and durability, delivering extra safety and peace of mind to drivers whilst on the road.

The Association for tyre retailers, wholesalers and associated tyre aftermarket suppliers has divulged that at its regional meeting in Northern Ireland on 7th April, three members shared the results of a local tyre tread depth on replacement survey, which showed that in the month of March they had removed more than 3000 tyres from cars and light commercial vans that were below the legal tread depth limited of 1.6mm.

NTDA Director Stefan Hay said “Although these results represent only a small sample of those our members in Northern Ireland are compiling, they are an early indicator of the scale of the problem and support, further, the results of the excellent 2015 survey conducted by TyreSafe, which showed that more than a quarter of motorists were replacing their tyres when they were already illegal. Poor tyre management and maintenance by the consumer combined with a lack of enforcement means that the problem appears to be getting worse which is truly alarming!”

Wheel alignment equipment specialist Pro-Align has opened the doors to its new and inaugural facility in Ireland, giving workshops across the country access to even better levels of service and support.

Located in Plato Park, Dublin (just off the M50), the facility provides a new base for its sales, servicing and installation teams, and includes demonstration and training areas which allow workshops to see and experience the powerful capabilities of the Hunter range of complete wheel servicing equipment.

Workshops, tyreshops and bodyshops keen to see the powerful capabilities of the Hunter range at Pro-Align’s new facility can call 015060699 or 01327 323007 to arrange an appointment.

At an Extraordinary General Meeting, the Tyre Recovery Association (TRA) has elected a new President, John Bramwell, following the retirement of the previous incumbent, Mike Wilson.

Peter Taylor OBE, Secretary General of the TRA, said: “We are pleased with John’s appointment and the TRA hopes to continue making further progress with regard to the auditing and certification of regulated garages. The TRA would like to place on record it’s thanks to Mike Wilson for the six-year period he served as President and wish him well in his retirement.

“Looking to the future, the TRA will continue to ensure that our regulated businesses are treated fairly and will continue to encourage the authorities to enforce the strict regulations on those who are less compliant with the laws.”

Avon Tyres has added an all-new SUV tyre to their high performance range, the Avon ZX7.

Designed for medium and large SUV fitments, the ZX7 – Avon’s first ultra-high performance SUV tyre – offers outstanding grip (‘A’ grade wet grip) and handling.

Avon’s ZX7 has been developed with a unique asymmetric tread pattern, which is specifically designed to cope with the weight of large SUVs. Large circumferential grooves in the tread clear water efficiently from the contact patch to reduce the risk of aquaplaning in wet conditions, while a large central rib increases feel and driving response.

Jeff Schumaker, Vice President of European Operations / Managing Director, Avon Tyres, said, “All of our products in this segment are produced in Melksham, in the UK, and increasing our range strengthens even further Avon’s brand positioning in Britain. Our research has shown there is the demand among consumers for an ultra-high performance SUV tyre and the Avon ZX7 will be launched this spring.”

For more information on the new Avon ZX7 and pricing, visit www.avon-tyres.co.uk.  

Avon Tyres has launched its latest high performance passenger car tyre, the Avon ZV7 – which offers exceptional ‘A’ grade wet grip, fuel efficiency and handling – as an evolution of the highly-popular ZV5.

Melksham-based Avon Tyres is renowned for manufacturing high-performance tyres, as well as supplying ultra-high performance products across numerous championships in European motorsport.

Replacing the acclaimed Avon ZV5, the newly-developed ZV7 incorporates a range of advanced technologies that mean it offers a host of added features and benefits.

Jeff Schumaker, Vice President of European Operations / Managing Director, Avon Tyres, said, “Our high performance product range is continually updated to incorporate all the latest technologies on offer to consumers. Avon’s typical design and development cycle is two years.

“As one of our latest products to be launched, the ZV7 is the next-generation ZV5. We have increased how responsive the tyre is to small driver inputs, while keeping the car stable at all speeds. This new addition to the Avon range is launched at the perfect time to provide drivers with peace of mind on the roads during the April showers with its ‘A’ rating for wet grip.”

Greenergy Flexigrid, the fuel haulage service company within the Greenergy Group, will fit more than 100 of its vehicles with Goodyear’s FUELMAX fuel efficient tyre. 

Greenergy Flexigrid delivers around 5 billion litres of fuel a year to both Retail and Commercial customers, travelling over 11.5 million miles a year in the process.

Commenting on the decision to switch to a 100% Goodyear FUELMAX tyre fitment policy, Andy Darling, Business Development Manager at Greenergy Flexigrid, said: “Goodyear already operate within our sector, which means that they understand the challenges and nature of our business.

Goodyear has highlighted the fuel efficiency performance of its FUELMAX tyres through a number of recent tests, including an internal test carried out by German fleet Spedition Bartkowiak.  Their results confirmed a fuel saving potential of up to 1.6 litres per 100 kilometres per truck with Goodyear FUELMAX tyres.  

Specially developed versions of the MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres will be the sole original equipment fitment on the new limited special model BMW M4 GTS.

As a track car that is approved for road use, the job of Michelin’s engineers was to design an ultra-high-performance tyre which is able to operate safely in a variety of road and track conditions around the world. To this end, the MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres for the BMW M4 GTS were produced using not only Bi-Compound asymmetric tread patterns but also an asymmetric casing design. This offers the optimum balance between handling, grip and tyre life.

In addition to Michelin’s Bi-Compound technology, the MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres also incorporate the motorsport-developed Track Variable Contact Patch 3.0. This optimises pressure in the tyre's contact patch so the same amount of rubber is always in contact with the road or track, whether driving in a straight line or cornering.

With India emerging as one of the most competitive market and emergence of new technologies and raw materials, growth opportunities for the tyre industry abound. Riding on this growth, an additional Tyrexpo India in New Delhi was added to the Series which covers 5 cities in 4 countries, making traditionally biennial Tyrexpo India exhibition to an annualised one. Tyrexpo India will be held at Pragati Maidan from 14 – 16 June 2016 and will bring together a global audience of over 3,500 from 30 countries with close to 100 international exhibitors.

Tyrexpo India 2016 is also pleased to announce our two Gold Sponsors: BKT and Linglong Tire. Having participated in the previous shows, both BKT and Linglong Tire have continued to be part of the upcoming Tyrexpo India 2016 as a vote of confidence with the show. More information on the event is available on www.tyrexposeries.com/india.
