Choosing the right tyres and adopting the best wheel maintenance regime can make a huge difference to a fleet operator’s bottom line.
Indeed, according to EU tyre labelling standards, fuel consumption can be affected up to 30% by the choice of tyre used on a vehicle.
And with the average 44-tonner travelling 80,000 miles per year costing an operator
£48,952 in diesel/AdBlue (around one-third of total operating costs)*, fuel-efficient, high-mileage tyres are a no-brainer for fleet managers.
Then there is the decision on how best to procure the tyres, such as whether to adopt a pay-as-you-go approach or the certainty of a pence-per-kilometre contract.
And once purchased, an effective maintenance regime is essential to keep vehicles safe and compliant as well as maximise the lifecycle of the product.
