The business case for using RE-TRAK tyres
At Tructyre, we understand that your fleet operating costs are constantly under the spotlight. For this reason, we never promote the use of single life budget tyres. You can be assured that our recommendations deliver the best value possible – not just the lowest ticket price.
With over 20 years in the business, Tructyre has fitted a wide range of tyres to an even wider range of fleets. This experience, combined with our policy of proactive incident prevention, provides valuable information that we use to maximise tyre life and reduce your costs.
The conclusion – the best value tyres are those designed and manufactured to more exacting standards, by the larger, internationally renowned brands. Whilst these carry a higher ticket price, they last for six life cycles and therefore deliver the best value for money.
Firstly, these tyres are regroovable to extend life by up to 15%. Then, at the end of their first life, we remould the casing with our RE-TRAK retread solution. RE-TRAK is a safe and reliable tyre, manufactured to exceed EU legislation in a state-of-the-art UK factory. Within Europe, over a third of replacement tyres on commercial fleets are retreads. These OEM and RE-TRAK tyres could also deliver at least a 1% reduction in fuel burn over their budget counterparts, due to their more efficient classification under the EU Tyre Labelling Directive.
By choosing RE-TRAK tyres, you’re also saving:
