KRT adds three sizes to Blacklion TBR range

Kings Road Tyres (KRT), one of Ireland’s leading distributors of TBR products, has added three sizes to its exclusive Blacklion range of products for the haulage sector.

Recent additions to the range are the BT165 and BD175 steer and drive axle tyres, available in popular sizes 295/80R22.5, 315/80R22.5 and 315/70R22.5.

They join another popular option in the form of the BT160 385/65R22.5 trailer tyre, for regional haulage applications. All products offer fleet owners a quality, branded budget tyre option and are backed by full after sales and warranty services.

Blacklion is an up-and-coming brand which is growing in popularity by offering a combination of quality, value-for-money budget products for high specification vehicles. All tyres are backed by a full after sales and warranty service managed by KRT, which has more than 40 years’ experience of the truck market.

It is one of a powerful collection of exclusive brands marketed by KRT in the Irish TBR sector, where it is also the solus distributor of the Fullrun and Antyre brands.

Tim Bader, KRT’s Group Operations Manager, comments: “We work closely with our manufacturing colleagues at Blacklion, which includes input to their new product development process. In practice, that means a regular pipeline of patterns and sizes that meet market opportunities, such as those for Euro 6 trucks and other commercial vehicles.”

With such major stockholdings, KRT supply a full range of products, not simply the faster moving lines. Its TBR offer includes Long & Regional haul, Mixed Service, On/Off road, Coach and Urban tyres.
