The cover story in this month’s issue features a profile of Tayarlo, the Ultra-High Performance (UHP) tyre wholesaler that provides on-demand delivery services to tyre dealers in the Klang Valley. The company invites dealers to use their buying power to be more competitive in handling a complex product mix.
This is followed with Kitar Teliti’s exclusive interview, where Executive Director Wingson Cher shared with us their development and market strategies in East Malaysia. He also revealed that the company will be launching the Roadone QA919, a new truck and bus radial tyre for on-road and off-road use.
There are also product related updates on Toyo’s Proxes CR1 – the OE tyre for the all-new Perodua Alza, and Yokohama Rubber’s latest OE fitments on the new Mazda CX-60, whilst for the commercial side, we have a feature on Apollo Tyres revamped mining tyre range. For the retreading side, we have news on Vipal Rubber’s latest innovation in envelopes.
We also have a special report on the various tyre brands that took part in the recently concluded IAA Transportation 2022.
