Suttons Group has extended its tyre contract with Goodyear Tyres for another four years.

The agreement will see Goodyear supply tyres from its KMAX (pictured), RHT, TreadMax and Omnitrac ranges for Suttons’ UK fleet of 380 tractor units.

Goodyear will also provide Suttons with a UK-wide truck tyre servicing and breakdown assistance via its TruckForce network of Goodyear Dunlop hubs and independent service providers.

In addition, Suttons will receive on-site tyre inspections and random pressure checks at all its depots, carried out by a Truckforce engineer

Michael Cundy, MD of Suttons Group, said: “Suttons operates the largest network of chemicals, fuel and gas transportation in the UK.

"The reliability of our vehicles is paramount, not only to provide the best service for our customers, but also to ensure the safety of our drivers and other road users."
