Over the past 10 years farming has changed profoundly. It may seem like the stuff of science fiction, but autonomous vehicles, indoor farming and drone pollination are becoming more common throughout the sector.
Established in 2011, Australian-owned and operated Tyreright has seen it all. This year it celebrates its first decade in business, and has been acknowledged as the country's fastest-growing tyre retailer.
Tyreright general manager Nick Southon attributes Tyreright's success in an era of change to their support of communities.
"If the local economy is flourishing, we all do well, and that goes double for the farming sector," he said.
Even in these present difficult times, Tyreright is using its expertise to support farming communities across Australia.
"Farming may well be the most important job on earth," he said.
"We want to ensure our farmers have all they need to keep moving, regardless of prevailing circumstances."
Throughout the pandemic, Tyreright Service Centres have remained open in regional areas, operating safely, following government guidelines to keep both customers and employees as safe as possible.
"With Tyreright stores across all states and territories, we are nearby, ready to do everything in our power to ensure life on the farm continues to run smoothly," Mr Southon said.
Tyreright carries about $30 million of stock - Australia's largest selection of tyres. From budget to premium quality, it always has a tread pattern and a size readily available to suit every sort of vehicle and application. From cars and 4x4s, trucks, buses, and forklifts to OTR, tractors and heavy earthmoving equipment - all farm vehicles and implements are covered.
Tyreright takes the hassle out of buying tyres too. It was the first Australian tyre retailer to offer an e-commerce platform. Its website makes it easy for you to select, order, and pay without leaving the farm.
For on-farm field service, simply call and a Tyreright technician will respond in no time, delivering, fitting, and maintaining tyres at a time and place that is convenient to you, which saves you money by having less downtime on your farm.
It is critical to be able to access specialised agricultural tyres as farming equipment grows larger, heavier, more capable, and more highly engineered. No other tyres require as much expert know-how. There is so much to consider.
Tyres can have a direct impact on several key elements of farming: soil compaction, fuel efficiency, traction on and off the field, as well as the comfort of the farmer.
Dependent on the type of crop, different compounds may be needed to ensure your ultimate return on investment. What works well and improves the application in one area may cause problems and failures in another. As OTR and agricultural tyre specialists, Tyreright can suggest the best solution for every situation and offer a reliable supply of competitively priced tyres, including flotation, row crop and garden mower, forestry logger, harvesters and farm implements, tractor radials and BIAS tyres.
It is the exclusive import agent for the world's best tyres: Firestone from the USA and Europe; Alliance from Israel and India; Mitas from Europe; Advance Ag, Kenda ATV and turf tyres from Asia.
Tyreright's country-wide network of dealers also offer comprehensive advice based on years of knowledge and experience. Its regional operators are passionate about providing personalised customer service. Connection and community are important. That's why they take the time to get to know you and your requirements, and ensure you get the right tyres for your field-based needs.
In addition to tyre fitting, alignment, repair and maintenance, they offer mechanical servicing and battery replacement.
Its licensed, in-store mechanics are equipped with the latest tools and technology to service and repair your vehicle, quickly, efficiently, and at a great price. They also handle log-book servicing, rego checks, brakes, steering, suspensions and exhausts, and are licensed to perform a range of vehicle inspections and safety certificate inspections*.
Only Australian Standards-approved tyres are sold and every tyre comes with the best manufacture warranties, in some cases up to 10 years.
Tyreright will not be beaten on price. Its Price Match Guarantee** means you always get the best brands at the best prices. But if you do happen to find a better advertised price for an in-stock tyre, they guarantee to match it.
