PTS Marketing became the sole distributor of Petlas tyres in Malaysia since 2014.
Providing quality products and superior service to customers is the mission of PTS Marketing Sdn Bhd, which the company says is in line with Turkey based tyre manufacturer, Petlas, who initiated a ‘Voyage to Quality’ programme in 1998 stressing the importance of quality. Commitment in providing quality products is the value that both companies share in common, and that is what probably tied the two companies together. PTS Marketing became the sole distributor of Petlas tyres in Malaysia since 2014.
Starting off in 1976 as a state manufacturer of fighter aircraft tyres for the Turkish Air Force, Petlas Tire was acquired by Abdulkadir Ozcan Anonim Sirketi, a leading Turkish tyre company. The company began its production of radial tractor tyres in 2007, manufacturing 85 per cent of their product based on its own knowhow. Today, the company manufactures almost all types of tyre, ranging from passenger cars, SUVs/4X4, light truck and truck, off-highway equipment used in agricultural, industrial, earthmoving/construction vehicles, military vehicles to aircraft. Petlas Tire has operations in 98 countries and has a large and stable distribution network throughout the world tyre market.
Leveraging on its own research and development centre, Petlas Tire keeps up with the latest technologies, and has obtained several certifications such as the ISO 9001 Quality System Assurance Certification, AQAP-10 Industrial Quality and ISO/TS 16949. According to PTS Marketing, Petlas tyres are safe, deliver less emissions and noise, making them an environmentally friendly product.
The patterns that PTS Marketing has brought into Malaysia are Velox Sport PT741, Velox Sport PT741 Run-Flat, Explero PT431 H/T and Progreen PT525.
According to the company, Velox Sport PT741 is produced for drivers who desire ultimate handling and grip performance without compromising comfort while driving at high speed. The tyre utilises a full silica tread compound developed through FST technology, providing superb handling on dry and wet road conditions. Rolling resistance is reduced significantly, resulting in lower fuel consumption. It is available in 74 sizes, starting from 15-inch all the way up to 20-inch in diameter. There are 17 sizes ranging from 16 to 19-inch in the Petlas PT741 range, with the tyre also offering a run-flat feature, which means that these tyres can continue supporting the vehicle’s movement even when the pressure is lost. It is claimed these tyres are capable of reaching a distance up to 200km without having any integrity problems.
Specially developed for luxury SUVs, the Explero PT431 H/T combines quality and high performance with its specially developed tread design and compound. The company claims that the tyre’s block array maximises grip performance in every driving condition with short braking distances on wet surfaces. The tyre is available in a total of 20 sizes, ranging from 17 to 20-inch rim size, including Explero PT431 H/T 255/50R19 run-flat.
Meanwhile, the Progreen PT525 is a passenger car tyre designed to be more fuel efficient with high mileage performance. Featuring an asymmetrical pattern design that enables high performance on both dry and wet conditions with enhanced safety, the tyre offers fast and effective water discharge through its three wide grooves. The tyre also offers low rolling resistance according to PTS Marketing, thanks to its specially developed tread compound. Road noise has been minimised through the tyre’s special tread block design. The Progreen PT525 is available in 11 sizes, from 14 to 16 inch in diameter.
