Truck tyres are the lifeblood of your vehicle. Without them, you would be stuck at home, unable to get your goods to their destination. Truck tyres need to fulfil a lot of requirements. They have to be able to handle long-distance travel, carry heavy loads, and stay safe in all types of driving conditions. From decades of experience in the tyre industry, we know that truck tyres are some of the toughest tyres available.
We stock a wide range of truck tyres from our trusted brands like, Continental, Bridgestone, Toyo, and Falken. These brands are respected in the industry for their precise engineering and testing processes that ensure quality products every time.
Truck tyres are bigger and wider, but why? All tyres need to be strong enough to perform their function. For trucks and buses, that function is to haul heavy loads over long distances. The weight of these vehicles requires tyres with a great deal of strength.
Truck tyre manufacturers use tougher materials in their products. A typical truck tyre made for highway use might have 20/32nds of an inch (10 millimetres) of tread depth, while a passenger car might only have 6/32nds of an inch (4 millimetres). An old truck tire will likely still have some useful tread left, while an old passenger car might already be bald.
Handling is another important factor that differentiates truck from passenger car tyres. To give the driver better control while negotiating sharp turns and sudden accelerations, the shoulder blocks of truck tyres are much less rounded than those of passenger car tyres. As a result, a truck tyre is more stable when negotiating turns at high speeds or when driving on rough terrain.
Our brands of choice for truck tyres are Continental, Bridgestone, Toyo, and Falken—some of the most respected names in the business. These companies back up their products with high-precision design, engineering, and testing to ensure that you get the highest quality product available.
