New Gislaved Tyre Pattern

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) The Gislaved tyre range has been extended with the recent addition of the Speed 606 tyre, replacing the current Speed 506.

Exclusively available from Viking International, the new Speed 606 has a lot to offer the discerning driver.

The new tyre is said to safeguard enhanced handling and cornering stability. It features nuerous sipes with different angles, and block edges in the pattern combined with the fastest modern silica tread compound. As a result Viking representatives described the tyre’s performance by saying it had “short braking distances and outstanding handling.”

Dealer support includes consumer information leaflets, A2 glossy reception posters, superior outdoor signage in a range of sizes, high quality branded clothing and exclusive lifetime guarantee, which enables dealers to earn additional revenue. A dedicated Gislaved Tyres website features the full tyre range and specifications, POS support, dealer locator which enables the consumer to locate their nearest dealer and trade area accessible by account number.

John Caldwell, executive director for Viking International says: “Gislaved tyres have been sold through our network of dealers for many years and together with a great dealer support package are a popular tyre with our customers.  The introduction of the new Speed 606 pattern will provide our dealers with a further profit opportunity making Gislaved the perfect choice for dealers”.

The Speed 606 is available for next day delivery and can be bought online.
