With the ever increasing costs associated with the haulage industry, we at A One Tyres want to ensure our customers are receiving value for money and maximizing the value of their tyre investment by regularly checking and maintaining fleets. This operation is carried out by our Michelin MBA trained staff. Our depot has two truck bays ensuring an efficient turnaround, facilitating customers to get back on the road as soon as possible. The truck bay utilizes the latest technology to maintain a first class standard of service.
A One carries out fleet checks either on-site or at our depot. We check pressures, ensure even wear & take tread depth while monitoring how well the tyres are performing. Our findings can then be sent to our customer in their preferred format.
A thorough fleet check ensures that any problems can be corrected as soon as possible.
A wheel is said to be correctly aligned when its plane of rotation coincides with its direction of travel. When a wheel is incorrectly aligned the tyre will scrub on the road surface, causing rapid irregular wear.
Tests have shown that just a 1mm of misalignment can lead to a 7% loss in tyre life & fuel efficiency is reduced by 3%.
Correct tyre inflation is the most vital single factor in getting the best from your tyres. When a tyre is correctly inflated it sits with the correct area of tread fully in contact with the road. It is in this condition that the tyre can provide its best performance in terms of grip and flexibility. Running your tyres, even slightly under-inflated will increase rolling resistance, thereby significantly increasing fuel consumption and reducing tyre mileage.
Regrooving is recutting a tread pattern once the tread depth has worn down to 3-4 mm.
Benefits of regrooving:
- It is cost effective
- It improves performance & safety
- Maximises tyre life
By re-grooving your tyres, not only will you be prolonging the life of your tyres but you will almost double the phase of the tyre’s life when it is in it’s most fuel efficient state.
By correctly balancing your wheels it helps to eliminate vibration and avoid premature tyre, suspension and steering components wear.
