DSEI Japan: Tyron Introduces Custom ATR Runflat System

Viable Alternative for Users Seeking Multi-Part Runflats Without Multi-Part Wheels

Tyron Runflat is introducing a new All-Terrain Runflat multi-piece tyre solution to its product portfolio at DSEI Japan, 18-21 November.

Called the ATR-Custom, the new system is designed for vehicles fitted with standard single-piece wheels as an alternative to Tyron Multibands or third-party plastic-type runflats. The two-piece runflat solution does not require a hydraulic press to squeeze the runflat in and out of the tyre, making it field-mountable and -demountable and minimising the logistics footprint of armoured vehicles.

The ATR-Custom is made of rubber, which gives extra protection to off-road 4×4 and military vehicles. Unlike plastic or composite materials, rubber absorbs the shocks encountered in kerb strikes and pot-holes and in the off-road environment, drastically reducing vibration and stresses that can transmit through the runflat to the wheels, suspension, axles and drive-shafts. Rubber is far superior, offering a much smoother ride for driver and occupants and a lower degree of wear and tear on the vehicle. Additionally, as rubber is a compliant material, it prevents damage to the tyre itself caused by impingement between the runflat and the inside of the tyre.

“The ATR-Custom is a new alternative for users seeking a multi-part runflat for military vehicles that do not have multi-piece wheels,” said Richard Glazebrook, Chief Executive of Tyron Runflat Ltd. “We are pleased to introduce this new solution at DSEI Japan, which is a market in which we see great opportunities for growth for our company.”
