Tyrenet launched on 9 January 2004. Initially located in Sutton Business Park in St Helens, Tyrenet’s journey began from humble beginnings. Founded by Mike Riley 20 years ago, the fleet service support business now handles 300 calls daily and delivers over 200 jobs both emergency and routine fleet maintenance, throughout the UK. After an impressive 57 years in the tyre business, managing director Mike Riley retired in July 2023.
After more than 57 years in the tyre business including two decades as Tyrenet managing director, Mike Riley has announced his retirement effective 30 June 2023. Announcing the news, Tyrenet representatives highlighted how Riley’s contributions have been “integral to the success of Tyrenet”, adding: “Mike will continue to play a strategic role in the company as chairman, moving from the daily operations to overseeing and influencing the future growth of Tyrenet.”
Tyrenet its pitched as the “’go to’ tyre emergency service” for many tyre dealers and fleets all over the UK and increasingly in Europe. In 2021, the introduction of Tyrenet’s on-line tyre ordering solution meant it could provide a service for the public as well as commercial fleets that didn’t have an account or contract with a local tyre dealer.
Tyrenet has launched an on-line solution designed to enable stricken truck and van drivers to “quickly place an enquiry to repair or replace a tyre 24/7”. According to the company, Tyrenet.net will enable a driver to get back on the road in 90 minutes, halving experience of three-hour downtime.
Fleet maintenance and breakdown specialist Tyrenet is the first dealer network to implement CAM’s UniSerV V7.2 platform. The platform will connect Tyrenet to other UniSerV users that are fully integrated with e-jobsheet as well as standalone e-jobsheet subscribers via the TiDaeX online hub.
Fleet maintenance and breakdown specialist Tyrenet will provide its services to Airdrie-based TOM Vehicle Rental’s 11,000-plus fleet.

CAM has scheduled the second UniSerV User Group (UUG) meeting for April, coinciding with The CV Show at the Birmingham NEC.

Tyrenet has become the first truck tyre dealer network to sign on with CAM International’s e-jobsheet.
