Two-year tyre trial convinces UK fleet to swap

UK-based road transport and warehousing firm PF Booth & Son has announced will convert its entire fleet to Michelin 315/70 R 22.5 X MultiWay 3D tyres.

According to Dave Booth, Partner at PF Booth & Son, the move comes after a two year test revealed improved mileage performance.

“Seeing the statistics in black and white made the switch to Michelin 315/70 tyres an easy one. We simply get more mileage for our money.”

PF Booth & Son reportedly recorded run-out mileages of 216,662 km for its Michelin steer tyres, compared with 167,345km for the competitor tyres – an improvement of 29 per cent.

The X MultiWay 3D XDE drive axle tyres reached 279,744km before removal, compared with 159,324km for competitor tyres – an additional 76 per cent tyre life.

According to Michelin, PF Booth & Son plans to swap its entire fleet to Michelin 315/70 R 22.5 X MultiWay 3D tyres as wear dictates, and has already specified them as original equipment for all new trucks.

Booth said, “We’re a small company [but] we’ve found that Michelin is a large company with a small company ethos.”
