YOUR TRUSTED PARTNER
As well as servicing the replacement market, Kirkby Tyres Original Equipment (OE) division supplies agricultural, truck & bus radial (TBR), earthmover & off-the-road (OTR) tyre & wheel assemblies to key blue-chip manufacturing companies (OE1) and smaller trailer manufacturers (OE2) throughout the UK and Ireland.
Our sales staff and engineers within the OE division are highly regarded for their experience and knowledge. With our large stock holding in both TBR and agricultural tyres and wheels, our on–site manufacturing facilities, shot blasting facilities, paint booths and fitting equipment, we are able to offer bespoke wheel manufacturing and a complete solution to customers requiring just-in-time (JIT) deliveries of TBR and agricultural product. Many of the major wheel manufacturers are represented in both steel and aluminium options where available and with all product segments of the market covered.
SPECIALISTS IN COMPLETE WHEEL ASSEMBLIES TO OEM SPECIFICATION
As well as supplying a vast range of off-the-shelf wheels, we offer OEM customers a full technical service. Kirkby Tyres advises, supplies and manufactures tyre and wheel assemblies for brand-new and current machinery models. Calculations are typically based on vehicle/trailer weight, load carrying capacity, speed of the vehicle and intended road surface characteristics. Sometimes you may need a tyre that provides good flotation characteristics or a higher specification of weight carrying capacity for more demanding jobs. If you provide your requirement we will find a solution that works, no matter how unique your enquiry might be. Standard conversions such as 385/65R22.5 to 560/45R22.5 flotation and many others are available ex-stock for immediate delivery.
Our core tyre brands and most other brands can be fitted to wheels and shipped directly to you. Tyres and wheels of all types and sizes are assembled in our own workshops on our site in Liverpool. We pride ourselves on having very good stock availability of one of the largest ranges of speciality tyres and wheels in the UK. This enables us to support our OE clients with excellent levels of back-up stocks, vital in these days of ever lengthening lead-times from the manufacturers.
CUSTOM WHEEL MANUFACTURE TO COVER EVERY APPLICATION
Most sizes of custom wheels for agricultural, industrial and earthmover applications can be manufactured in-house in our state-of-the-art workshops. This is supported by our new state-of-the-art shot blasting and high-quality heat and pressure controlled 2 pack painting facilities. We stock the most comprehensive range of agricultural trailer, tractor, row crop & implement tyres and wheels throughout the whole industry, including a full range of flotation radial and bias tyres (in both steel and fabric belts), implement, tractor, row crop, slurry tanker, trailer, sprayer (both trailed and self-propelled) tyres and wheels. We also have available all sizes of agricultural and industrial tyres & wheels in new and re-mould (tyres) in patterns such as block, road and cargo for agricultural use. Complimenting this agricultural product we also service earthmover/OTR wheel requirements. Completing our product offering are commercial truck, trailer and tractor unit tyres in premium and value brands, available ex stock fitted on wheels from 17.5” up to 22.5” diameter.
