The rise in winter rubber

Hunter tyre changer from Pro-Align

Published:  02 March, 2015

The fully automated Hunter Revolution tyre changer is said to effortlessly change tyres, regardless of size or type, in the same way and in the same amount of time - helping to minimise damage to tyres, rims and TPMS sensors. The unit is exclusively available through Pro-Align and can help workshops protect motorists' tyres this spring when they switch back from winter to summer tyres. "Historically, there has been little appetite for winter tyres in the UK which meant that when workshops were removing tyres, they were normally being scrapped so it didn't matter if the tyres were damaged in the process." explains MD Paul Beaurain. "However, now that there's been quite a sizeable growth in the winter tyre market, workshops need to ensure that they do not cause any damage when removing and refitting tyres. With its fully automated process, the Revolution can help greatly with this."
