Logistik re-treads are longer lasting than original equipment tyres

Jul 21, 2017
Vacu-Lug Traction Tyres in Grantham has claimed in a recent press release that its re-tread tyres outperform original equipment by up to 50%. The tyres also cost only 60-70% of the price of new tyres. The company says that it has not sacrificed any physical tyre characteristics, but instead has achieved the improved performance through technological advancements and the use of more sophisticated compounds during the manufacturing process.

“One way to reduce rolling resistance is to reduce both tyre width – crucial for footprint – and tread depth,” explained Dave Alsop, Vacu-Lug Sales Director. “At Vacu-Lug, we’re using advanced compounds which have been developed over a long period to combine good rolling resistance with excellent wear characteristics – simply put, the tyres last longer.”

Vacu-Lug uses the LD01 drive tyre (in size 295/80R22.5) on its own distribution fleet and claims that the tyres outperform original equipment by up to 50%. Dave Alsop told The Mover in a recent interview that customers could also expect the tyres to be around 60-70% of the cost of original equipment.

To cope with increased demand, Vacu-Lug has recently installed a fourth Logistik press at its Lincolnshire plant.
