Newly launched business Truck Tyres Australia is an online portal and one-stop shop for all things tyres, wheels and associated accessories.
Chris Nichols has taken the reins as new national manager, bringing over 20 years of experience in the truck tyre industry into the role.
Designed as a user friendly platform for all truck tyre users, the website features a simple two-click system for all your tyre needs.
Truck Tyres Australia is a stockist of all major tyre brands for trucks, ranging from light to heavy-duty. Brands include Austyre, Dunlop, Firestone, Goodyear, Hankook, Michelin, Sailun and Yokohama to name a few. The company also stocks aftermarket wheels from the likes of Alcoa, Superchrome, Supalite and Ogreens.
As Truck Tyres Australia purchases directly from the manufacturer, it can save customers a lot of time and money. Container prices are also available, with customers able to buy their own containers at discount prices.
“We have access to all of the major brands, competitive pricing and years of product and application knowledge. We are committed to making shopping for tyres simple and easy as we understand the transport and trucking industry can be quite demanding on our time and budgets,” said Nichols.
“We are excited to be launching a website that will be simple and easy to navigate and offer fantastic backup support with extremely experienced staff who have been in the industry for a long time. With the backing of some of the biggest manufacturers from around the world, we will have the right product and price to suit any requirement. We also can ship Australia wide at competitive rates if needed.”
Despite the company being new to the market, Truck Tyres Australia has already been making its mark on numerous truck fleets. Among them is Membrey’s Transport and Crane Hire, a family owned business started in 1962. Its large fleet of trucks and equipment covers supertilt trailers, crane hire, water tankers, heavy haulage and over dimensional loads.
Managing director Craig Membrey says he has used numerous tyres in the past including brands such as Michelin, Bridgestone and Hankook, just to mention a few. “I now proudly use the Sailun and Austyre range of tyres, and since the changeover I have never had a tyre claim; and these tyres out-perform all the other tyres in my application. I’m saving a lot of money and time by doing this,” he said.
Membrey’s tyre sizes include 295/80/22.5 steer, 11r22.5 trailer and drive, as well as 9.5/17.5, 265/70/19.5, 255/70/225 and 215/75/17.5.
Brad Pickering, managing director of Vic Low Loaders, is another happy customer.
Vic Low Loaders primarily functions in the heavy haulage space and runs a fleet of 12 trucks plus trailers. The tyre sizes the company uses are 265/70/19.5 and 9.5 x17.5.
Previously Vic Low Loaders used Hankook, BFG and numerous other Chinese brands, however Pickering claims that the Sailun range of steer 295/80/225, 702 drive and 637 trailer tyres have been performing far better than the previous tyres he has been running. He says they actually handle better and are more cost effective for his fleet of trucks, so Sailun will save you time and money.
