A study published by car website Honest John yesterday confirmed that 9 in 10 new vehicles are sold without a full blown spare wheel. While many are fitted with a “Run-Flat” or “Space Saver” alternative, almost half merely contain a tyre repair kit (tyre sealant plus air pump). As a consequence, tyre-related call outs have increased by almost 20% since 2010. One in three motorists have experienced a tyre-related breakdown over the past 24 months.
To avoid the inconvenience, cost and time wastage associated with tyre failures, we encourage our customers to make sure they check their tyres and make sure they are aware of what solution they have in place in case of a tyre failure – especially over the coming winter months. Call us now on 0800 810 0951 to discuss your requirements.
Event Tyres are pleased to launch our new “Fitment Only” service to both new and existing customers.
“Tyre Fitment Only” is aimed at customers who switch between winter tyres and summer tyres as the seasons change and driving conditions become more or less challenging. The service is also aimed at customers who already have their own tyres and are looking for a fitment only solution.
Whenever we refit tyres, we always replace the valve and balance the wheel as well as checking the overall condition of the tyre to ensure it’s still safe to use.
Manchester United Branded Tyre Launched By Apollo & Available Exclusively From Event Tyres
Apollo, Manchester United’s Official Tyre Partner, has launched a new branded tyre that is sure to be a big hit with fans of the Old Trafford club.
To keep the deal very much a Manchester affair, locally based mobile tyre fitment specialist, Event Tyres, has secured the exclusive UK supply deal for the all-new Apollo Manchester United branded tyre.
Set up by former Kwik-Fit Mobile directors (Mark Shankland and Garry Moloney), Event Tyres boasts a national customer database of more than 85,000, and specialises in fitting tyres at home or work addresses across the UK, freeing up valuable time for its consumer and business customers.
Sales and Marketing director for Event Tyres, Jianni Geras (previously with Michelin), said: “With tyres, as it is with football, we know that every corner counts. We hope that this new product, with its excellent performance, longevity and affordability, will help fans join Louis van Gaal’s team on their road to success this season. Initial stocks are in limited supply, so I would encourage fans to register their interest through our website as soon as they can.”
The new tyre is available immediately and exclusively from Event Tyres, via the company’s Old Trafford (17-19 Talbot Road) tyre centre, call centre (0800 810 0972) or website www.event-tyres.co.uk, and is priced from £59.95 per tyre. Manchester United tyres are available in limited sizes at launch, with the range being expanded over the coming months.
A key element of the partnership between Apollo and Manchester United will be a joint community commitment to encourage healthy lifestyles and develop sporting skills in young people. Apollo will build ‘Go The Distance” football pitches made from recycled tyres in communities across the UK and India, with the first being at Old Trafford.
Manchester United group managing director, Richard Arnold, commented: “Apollo is a leading player in the tyre industry, and its rate of growth and development in new territories make it an attractive partner for the Club. The partnership also allows the Club to continue its on-going commitment to investment in and development of young people.”
