Tyres and Tubes for Today’s Market
Through almost 60 years of trading, the company, a major player in the UK Tyre Wholesale sector, has experienced many changes in this ever-evolving industry, from the early days of crossply tyres, to the now, commonplace radial tyre. Coupled with this the extensive development of the varying aspect ratios now required to meet the many needs and applications of not only road transport, but for all pneumatic tyre equipped vehicles, such as agricultural, industrial, construction, earthmover, open space management, plant & machinery and much more. In meeting the present day requirements R H Claydon offers tyres for all these requirements and being solely a wholesaler, with no retail outlets, there is no conflict with its customer base.
The exclusive brand, BKT, manufactured in India, forms the greater part of this supply for all products outside Car, Van, 4X4 & Truck, The range could be stated as meeting all needs pneumatic, indeed this is signified in BKT’s own advertising strapline “Off-Highway Tyre Solutions”. In this year, there have been many additions to the BKT Range including, 70/65/90&95 Agrimax Radial Tractor, Tele Handler sizes in 460/70R24 (17.5R24) and 19.5R24. BKT Armaturf KV Tyres for the professional ride-on mower, now offer an estimated 90 per cent protection from punctures. The year has also seen the growth in earthmover units; in this sector sizes such as 1800-25 40pr & 1800-33 40pr Rock Grip E4, both sizes also produced for Port & Terminal operations. The BKT range fully justifies Claydon’s own slogan “All- Season All- Reason Agricultural & Industrial Tyres”.
In the Passenger sector, the introduction of Kenda Car, Van & the Trailer Tyre KR16 Kargo PRO along with Accelera Passenger range from 13” to 19”, has enjoyed steady growth through their acceptance from the existing and a new customer base. Truck offerings have been enhanced by the introduction of brand Pace, which is exclusive to RHC in the UK; the brand has added to the continued and pleasing growth in Matador & Kumho.
The Claydon range continues to offer its other successful solus agricultural tyre, Semperit Radial Tractor. The brand continues to meet the demanding market need with encouraging growth. This stocking range is further added to by brands Bridgestone, Continental, Dunlop, Duro, Mitas, Titan, Trelleborg and much more.
