Initially available in seven dimensions for 15- and 16-inch rim diameters, the Z Tyre Vantastic is designed in and for Europe.

As sports utility (SUV) and crossover (CUV) vehicle growth continues to outpace that of the traditional family car, the demand for high quality tyres for these latest SUV/CUV models also increases.

The announcement follows the launch of Z’s ‘flat rate’ dealer programme in the market.

Z Tyre has launched a new concept in car tyre retail, which it believes “could represent an exciting and substantial commercial shift for the tyre trade.” The Z Tyre Flat Rate subscription, available from 4.99 euros per month, is designed to cover all new tyre related costs, allowing the customer to fit or upgrade tyres using a small monthly subscription. The initiative aims to answer common complaints of motorists purchasing tyres – a high initial one-off cost for a distress purchase, which can often mean reduced opportunities to sell based on aesthetics, performance or expert recommendation – and the unpredictability of cash-flow for the retailer.
