Tyre Selection – Keep it simple.


Selecting the proper tyre size, load range and design is very important to ensure satisfactory performance. The best guide is to follow past experience and use the advice of professionals who are familiar with the types of tyres used in service conditions similar to yours. TyreZim representatives are ready to aid you in this important decision.


The Process

The process of determining which tyre to select for a job or operation may sometimes seem difficult or complex. Indeed, the proper selection involves a myriad of decisions concerning the size, the type, and the tread design of the tyre based upon the intended application. Other considerations are the manufacturer of the tyre, the tyre dealer, price, availability, and the warranty coverage which comes with the product. However, there is a logical method for selecting which kind of tyre would be most appropriate depending upon an assessment of the many considerations surrounding the fleet operation.

Be aware that all tyre use selections will have advantages and disadvantages depending upon vehicle design and vocation. Make certain your choices are in line with your perceived fleet needs and contact TyreZim for expert assistance in making your selection.


Rims And Wheels

The selection of rims or disc wheels goes hand-in-hand with the selection of tyres. When ordering new equipment, specifying the recommended rim for the tyre size selected will ensure optimum performance. Rims are identified by a diameter and width and, in the case of tube-type rims, also with a type code. The type code designations are used on tube-type products to help identify rings and rims for

It is important that the rim size be approved for the tyre being used. This assures proper fit and performance of the tyre and rim. Specify approved rims for each tyre size. When selecting the correct wheel or rim type, it is important to determine the operating conditions to which the wheel or rim will be subjected. Conditions to consider are loads, speeds, road surfaces, use of bias or radial tyres, tyre pressure, tyre size, and the use of tube-type or tubeless tyres. Caution is necessary in selecting wheel/rim offsets to ensure proper tyre spacing, body and chassis
clearance, and overall vehicle width.

Take precautions to ensure that the rim and wheel not only have the approved contour, but also have the load and inflation ratings sufficient for the tyre in the intended application.
