Suttons Group has signed a four-year deal that will see it fit and run Goodyear’s KMax tyres on its fleet of 300 tractor units and 470 trailers.

The deal also sees Suttons take on Goodyear’s TruckForce tyre management package, which Goodyear said was an example of the tyre manufacturer “truly understanding” the needs of Suttons’ business.

Suttons Group procurement manager Chrisi Lloyd Roberts said: “TruckForce are experts in their field who offer a rigorous tyre management programme that will ensure our vehicles are fully maintained and perform to their optimum – minimising downtime and therefore decreasing the chance of disruption in our customers’ supply chains.”
