Michelin’s free-to-download MyTechXpert app offers all the latest tyre info and cost-saving tips for HGV and PSV fleets
Michelin Offers Free Technical Info to Tyre Dealers, Bus, Coach, Truck and Trailer Fleets Via New Application
Fusing technical info for over 200 of Michelin’s bus, coach, truck and trailer tyres, plus selected van fitments, MyTechXpert, available on iOS and Android, has Michelin’s technical data book included to offer commercial vehicle tyre info, free of charge.
Launching the new app, Steve Chadwick, Brand Manager B2B for Michelin Tyre, says: “This has been a long-term project, driven by customer demand. We wanted this to be more than just an electronic copy of the previous data book. So, from the outset, the app had to add real value for customers. One huge advantage is that it will always be up-to-date – there’s no more waiting for next year’s book to get the latest info.
“Plus, we’ve packed Michelin MyTechXpert with hundreds of high-quality reference images allowing users to zoom in and study particular details – incredibly useful when matching examples of damage or irregular wear against our extensive database of images.”
On the app, fleets can gain the relevant technical information and fitments, from small trailer tyres to heavy truck tyres. Available information includes detailed sizing, inflation pressure suggestions, EU tyre labelling data, and, where applicable, regrooving information.
The app also provides a handy step-by-step guide to performing a detailed tyre inspection, helping users to identify wear and damage to the tread, sidewall, inner liner and bead – and understand the probable causes.
Users also have full access to extensive advice and support around safe tyre-fitting, winter regulations and local tyre legislation. The app also includes a handy tyre selector, to help dealers and fleets identify the optimum tyre for every application – with detailed descriptions and images of every product.
