Your off highway tyres can be the fourth largest overhead in the running costs of your plant.
With 80% of a tyre’s manufacturing cost related to the casing, just 20% relates to the tread. That’s why we actively encourage our proactive tyre monitoring service to maximise the life of each tyre. Our technicians come to your site during scheduled downtime, to correct tyre pressure, monitor tyre wear and inspect for visible signs of damage.
Naturally, we perform tyre rotation to ensure even tread wear, and attend to any damage with our plant tyre repairs before the issue escalates. Always designed to prevent avoidable and unnecessary downtime. These plant tyre services also enable us to accurately predict replacement cycles.
You can also rely on us to service and maintain your off highway tyres on a pay as you go basis. The only difference is, you’ll need to ask us to perform the service, rather than it already being scheduled.
We’re always committed to extending the service life of your off highway tyres; reducing operating costs and critically maximising productivity.
The importance of Tyre Pressures
Tyre pressure has an extremely strong influence on service life, vehicle handling and fuel burn. This makes air the critical component in reducing your operating costs, working towards zero accidents, and doing your bit for the environment.
Driving with under-inflated tyres reduces stability and increases heat build-up, can cause irregular wear and internal damage, and could even lead to tyre break-up due to exaggerated rolling resistance. Dual tyres mounted side by side on an axle, when under-inflated, can rub together and chafe which causes side wall damage that is hard to see, until failure is imminent.
Over-inflation shortens service life as the tyre is more susceptible to impact damage and, in extreme cases, may result in a burst tyre or even rim deformation.
