Kirkby Tyres wheel portfolio provides OEM support
In addition to its tyre business, Kirkby Tyres’ ISO 9002 compliant services also include the supply of commercial wheels. The Speke-based wholesaler supplies the brands Jantsa, Pronar, Mefro, GKN, Protector, Alpro, Maxion, and Accuride, with more than 24,000 wheels currently in stock.
Kirkby’s original equipment (OE) division supplies tyre and wheel assemblies to large OEM’s and smaller OE2s, including key blue chip manufacturing companies, such as JCB and Terex, and can supply bespoke assemblies for specialist requirements including wheel re-engineering and colour finishes. In order to achieve this, the company has a dedicated wheel department, with product-specific technical expertise. This department includes on-site fabrication facilities for bespoke fabrications, manufacturing, and colour finishes for row crop, tractor, implement, trailer, industrial, earthmover, and truck applications.
