With its Hybrilug pattern that caused a stir when released in 2019, the King tractor tyre looks set to make an impact on both soft field and fast road transport.

Drivers and fleet managers are being urged to pay close attention when selecting replacement tyres for their cars and vans, with Michelin warning that inappropriate or incorrect fitments could negatively impact vehicle handling and performance characteristics – and in some cases risk invalidating the vehicle manufacturer’s warranty.

Goodyear launches an advanced version of its automated fleet inspection tool eJob. This smart application partly automates and streamlines the total truck and bus fleet inspection process from registration to maintenance, roadside assistance, retreading and warranty for service providers. From a fleet perspective, eJob offers full transparency of all maintenance and fleet inspections carried out, visible within seconds of job submission, from anywhere in Europe. 

Goodyear announced today a strategic relationship with TuSimple, a global autonomous trucking technology company, to provide tyres and tyre management solutions to TuSimple’s Autonomous Freight Network (AFN). 

Goodyear is announcing its exclusive partnership with Globaltruck, one of the largest Full Truck Load road freight carriers in Russia and the leading FTL carrier in the Urals and Siberia markets.The fleet includes 1,305  long-haul trucks plus 1,457 trailers and all vehicles will be equipped with the latest FUELMAX Gen-2 steering, drive and trailer tyres. 

Michelin has introduced two new sizes of its multi-purpose, all-season CrossGrip tyres for operators of backhoe loaders, skid steer loaders, telehandlers and small tractors. 

PCL continues to bring its connector range into the 21st century with the release of the CH3A01 Twin Swivel Clip-on Tyre Valve Connector and CH3A02 Single Swivel Clip-on Tyre Valve Connector. The two new models complement the recently launched CH2 air connectors, which have received positive feedback since their launch last year, and run alongside the popular CO3 range. 

This is the result of a joint development between Continental and the bus manufacturer VDL Bus & Coach. The prototypes offer impressive wet handling on the Contidrom test track and face complex technical trade-offs and new requirements. 

Speedline Truck complements its range of forged light alloy wheels, presenting the SLT 3698 – the first forged light alloy wheel for trucks in 22,5x9,75” to better meet the more “extreme” needs of megatrailers. 

The Nokian E-Truck range of truck tyres strike a balance between economical, care-free kilometers and effective all-weather properties. The latest addition to the range is sizes for medium-sized trucks. The new 19.5 size complements the tyre range, enabling medium-duty trucks in the 12–16-ton range for every season.
