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. This service is a fundamental stage of the prototypical design and final production processes of truck and agricultural machinery, equipment and component manufacturing. 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. Kirkby Tyres is the only wholesaler in the UK to offer every aspect of custom wheel fabrication. Our OE tyre & wheel business has developed to such an extent that Kirkby Tyres is now known as the leading supplier of truck and agricultural tyre & wheel assemblies in the UK.
Our key 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.
