OTR/Earthmover tyres

It seems the market can’t get enough of these products, and new projects to boost capacity or establish new manufacturing facilities are announced on a regular basis. The dark days of 2008 and production cuts are now, for the time being, just an unpleasant memory. 


Minimising rolling resistance is all well and good, but sometimes you actually want – and need – to stop. This is the point at which a good set of brakes becomes your best friend. The team at Tyres & Accessories realises this, and therefore from time to time we prise our focus away from tyres. 

Reifen 2012 – show review part 2

Europe’s largest tyre exhibition, Reifen 2012 had record numbers of exhibitors – 653 to be precise, with Messe Essen claiming the show represented a new level of internationality, with two-thirds of exhibitors attending the show from 44 countries outside Germany. The largest delegation other than the 212 from Germany comes from China, from where 139 exhibitors come. An additional 30 come from Taiwan, a number only exceeded by Italy (40) and Netherlands (33). British exhibitors account for 21 spaces in the approximately 60,000 square metre exhibition space. All of the 30 largest tyre manufacturers in the world will be involved.
