BKT, available from TRS Tyre and Wheel, have shaped an entire product range for loaders working in off-the-road applications. A tyre line-up conceived to face the challenges on the most differing of terrains – from snowy and icy surfaces to muddy and rocky ones at quarries and mines. BKT offer a comprehensive range featuring extraordinary traction performance, strength, safety for operators at work and to significantly enhance driving comfort.
Balkrishna Industries Ltd (BKT) has been awarded as the “Port Tyre Manufacturer of the Year” at the 2016 Terminal Operator Excellence Awards in Dubai. The award was for port and terminal cargo handling equipment and based on various parameters including technological innovation, product performance, durability, sustainable manufacturing and ease of recycling.
Five years ago, TRS Tyre & Wheel introduced the Roadlux truck tyre range to the New Zealand market, initially introducing 10 lines. The range in the country has now increased to 29 lines with 16 different tread patterns which have been carefully selected to reflect the local road conditions and diverse terrain.
Recent warm, wet spring weather has meant a lot of grass growth in public parks and sports grounds. The exceptional growth is a seasonal issue for open space contractors who rely on the ability to work all day every day, regardless of the weather.
Spraying is a crucial phase in farming and needs to be performed perfectly to achieve optimal results. During operations the soil must be preserved from compaction despite the weight of the equipment. BKT have specifically designed a range of tyres to ensure best performance and profitability specifically for spraying applications.
With technology ever evolving in farming, the demands on agricultural machinery keep growing. As machinery gets larger with increased capabilities, farmers are also more aware of the impact the correct tyre can have on farm productivity and profitability.
With this in mind, Michelin have released a new evolution of their CargoXBib agricultural trailer tyre designed to optimise performance across demanding applications. The CargoXBib Heavy Duty tyre has been developed for farmers using intensively loaded agricultural trailers both on the road and in the field while the High Flotation model incorporates Ultraflex technology harnessing the benefits of soil preservation.
Working on hard surfaces such as asphalt or concrete will wear tyres out quicker than soft or loose surfaces such as sand or grass. Advances in tyre technology use design and construction features to combat the issue of wear and increase tyre life.
Skid steer service is extremely demanding on tyres, the machinery and its operator. Michelin are targeting these issues head-on with the latest innovation to the skid steer tyre market – the Bibsteel All-Terrain radial range.
Tyres play a crucial role in the safety and productivity of port logistics. With the right tyre, machinery can operate at its optimum level guaranteeing the maximum stability in heavy load handling which improves the safety of its personnel.
With the National Fieldays at Mystery Creek only weeks away, TRS Tyre & Wheel will be showcasing new tyres to combat soil compaction from leading Tyre manufacturers BKT and Michelin, on site number B53.
Michelin has introduced its new YieldBib agricultural tyre for high horse powered tractors and rowcrop machinery. As machinery gets heavier and crops get tougher, Michelin as a company aims to reduce field compaction with help from a wide footprint on its YieldBib radial tyre range.
126 hectares of barren desert with a handful of withered and windswept shrubs. No water, no electricity. - This is how the area looked like, where BKT has created in a few years a real showpiece out of nothing thanks to a 500-million-US dollar investment: a self-contained production plant representing the state of the art for both industrial equipment and infrastructures and facilities for employees.
Michelin is offering farmers access to an easy-to-use mobile application that features a number of unique functionalities. With the MICHELIN Pressure Calculator, real-time agricultural tire pressure information is just a photo and a couple of clicks away.
Large mines are heavily reliant on a range of heavy wheeled equipment to extract and cart materials and every hour they are out of service adds hugely to the running costs. The severe conditions these large machines operate in take their toll on large and expensive earthmover tyres.
Skid Steer service is extremely demanding on tyres. Extra thick sidewalls, chip & tear resistant compounds and rim guard protection are just a few of the special features built into the new BKT Giant Trax range.
When it comes to working tractors on hill slopes and rugged terrain, the best option is Dual Wheels for the combination of extra flotation, traction and stability to get you places safely and with minimal soil damage.
They’re called all-terrain vehicles for a reason. ATVs are designed for all types of terrain, from rocks to mud to sand to snow and therefore need tyres that can handle the challenging & varied New Zealand conditions.
Farmers purchasing Michelin premium agricultural tyres are the winners in an aggressive move recently announced by the NZ distributor of Michelin agricultural Tyres TRS Tyre and Wheel. Under a new pricing structure effective 1 March, the recommended retail price on most Michelin lines has been reduced to meet growing demand for the brand. Already the most popular brand in NZ on new tractors sold in NZ, TRS have been able to leverage this demand and a strong market position in replacement tyre sales to deliver even better value to NZ farmers.
TRS Tyre and Wheel Ltd have expanded their range of specialty tyres with the introduction of the Garden Pro range from Galaxy. The Galaxy Garden Pro is a mixed-service radial tyre developed specifically for small tractors used in gardening, orchards, vineyards and utility maintenance.
Continental Presents the new Conti Hybrid range of tyres

In response to the diversity of the
regional transport segment, Continental is introducing a whole tyre family, in

Specially developed for city and regional
distribution, at 17.5 inch rim diameter, the Conti Hybrid LS3 for steer axles
and the Conti Hybrid LD3 for drive axles, are suitable for light trucks up to a
total weight of 12 tonnes.
The new Conti Hybrid HS3 and Conti Hybrid HD3 in 19.5 inch formats for steer
and drive axles are designed for vehicles of over 12 tonnes total weight. The
new Conti Hybrid tyres allow for the higher unladen weight of modern Euro 6
vehicles and are designed for varying load conditions, as is usual in regional
transportation. The steering axle tyre Conti Hybrid HS3 with a tyre dimension
of 22.5 inches is breaking new ground for applications in the heavy segment.
The Conti Hybrid tyres are scheduled for launch in the European market around
the middle of this year.
