Stapleton’s exclusive brands maximise buoyant 4×4 sector in otherwise rocky terrain

8th October 2018 | 0 Comments

The largest UK tyre wholesaler, Stapleton’s has long acknowledged the SUV/4x4 sector’s ability to transcend other segments with steady upward performance against a particularly volatile background. While a global rise in raw materials prices and post-referendum inflation are taking a toll on the UK, Stapleton’s notes the internationalism of the industry means the impact will be considerable, because where the car industry goes the tyre industry must inevitably follow.

Stapleton’s: With SUVs driving sales, more opportunities to sell exclusive brand tyres

5th March 2018 | 0 Comments

Over the last year or so it has been broadly noted that the SUV/4x4 sector of the tyre market has been impressively resilient. Not just from the relatively local impact of the UK’s Brexit vote and resulting inflation and slump in certain motor vehicle sectors (in the UK at least).

More worrying was the report that there’s an upward trend in the percentage of tyres with illegal tread depths on replacement (66% percent in 2015 and 70% in 2016). TyreSafe’s alarming prediction was that ‘higher numbers of dangerous and illegal tyres will be driven on the UK’s road’s in 2017’.
