We recognise that your fleet operating costs are constantly under the spotlight. That’s why Tructyre ATS always recommend the best tyre for every job – not just the lowest ticket price.
As the nation’s leading multi-brand commercial tyre specialist, Tructyre ATS benefit from an invaluable insight into real-world tyre service life. This unique hands-on experience enables us to offer truly impartial advice and specify the best value commercial tyres for your fleet business.
Which is why Tructyre ATS are committed to tyres engineered for multiple lives. At the end of their first life our tyre technicians will regroove them to extend service by a further 15%. Then, we give the tyre casing a new lease of life with our RE-TRAK retread solution – there are no compromises on performance or safety. And as you would expect, they are designed to be regrooved and given one more retread life. In service they will also deliver at least a 1% reduction in fuel consumption compared with budget single-life tyre.
We can illustrate this with a representative case study for the drive wheels on a 6x2 HGV tractor. A fleet operator requires each HGV tractor to cover around 106,000 kilometres per annum, for a total of six years. Using budget single-life tyres they would need to buy eight tyres per drive wheel to achieve the total distance of 636,000 kilometres. The price of tyres and fuel to achieve this distance totals £2.20 per 1,000 kilometres per wheel. With the Tructyre ATS best value recommendation, you would need just three tyres per drive wheel at a total cost of just £1.33 per 1,000 kilometres – a saving of 39%.
Our recommendation is good for the environment too. You will save the resources needed to manufacture 20 new tyres – saving 544 litres of oil, 352 kg of rubber and 1,458 kg of carbon dioxide in total. With the improved fuel efficiency reducing fuel consumption by 456 gallons.
* This operating cost illustration is based on a regional distribution business. The business owns their fleet of HGV tractor units and operates them for 6 years. The 6x2 HGV tractors have 480-500bhp, air suspension and run standard 295/80 22.5 tyres on their drive axles. They cover around 106,000km per annum pulling trailers with a gross weight of 44 tonnes, achieving an average of 9.4 mpg. This illustration is calculated on the full-life cost for four drive wheels including service on one HGV tractor.
