Advice from ATS Euromaster on choosing commercial vehicle tyres has been included in the new Road Haulage Association (RHA) manual.
The information has been included as part of a new chapter added to the guide in 2012, with the RHA keen to provide advice to haulage firms on tyre use.
Included in the ATS Euromaster sponsored chapter is practical advice and information on choosing the right tyres for your haulage vehicle.
The chapter will also look at how fleet vehicles can maximise tyre life and how to control any business' costs incurred through compound use.
In addition to this, the new section will focus on how to deal with severe weather conditions and in particular the use of winter tyres on UK roads.
The addition comes following the recent years of severe weather conditions on UK roads, with an increasing number of experts calling for more winter tyre use.
Mondial Assistance automotive director Lee Taylor recently hit out at many drivers’ refusal to purchase winter tyres in a bid to cut costs.
"Winter tyres offer increased performance and safety, helping to keep you on the road and reduce the risk of an accident for several winters to come," he said.
