The evolving UK vehicle parc brings consequential changes to the tyre servicing sector that need to be addressed for various reasons, not least the effects upon those who work in the industry. It wasn’t that many years ago that larger wheel and tyre combinations were limited to 4×4 off-road vehicles. Still, with the increasing number of 4x4s, trucks and SUVs, these larger, heavier wheels and tyres are increasingly prevalent.
For tyre centres, dealing with these larger wheel and tyre configurations can present the challenges of handling combinations weighing up to 40 kg. The Tecalemit range of Tyre Changers and Wheel Balancers has been designed to make handling more manageable and efficient.
In the February edition of Tyre Trade News, we explore how the Tecalemit equipment range can handle larger, heavier wheels and tyres safely and efficiently.
