New Aeolus ATR33 trailer tyre impresses Heuver Tyrewholesale customers

- PRESS RELEASE - During special events organised for European legs of the Volvo Ocean race, where the Aeolus-sponsored DongFeng boat claimed third place, Heuver Tyrewholesale customers were unanimous in their verdict: the new Aeolus ATR33 is a great addition to the market. As soon as the tyre was introduced ‘live’ to European customers, its effective technical properties, as well as its 'European' look, quickly caught people's attention. Heuver and its customers have high hopes for the tyre, which is now available directly from stock.

Technology for long life-span

“We have collaborated with Aeolus to develop a superb new addition to the trailer market”, states Bertus Heuver, director Heuver Tyrewholesale. “Cutting-edge technology and materials have been used to produce the ATR33, and the tyre also has a modern appearance. When the tyre was being developed, the aim was to create a strong carcase and profile so the life-span could be maximised. Thanks to its 4-layer strip technology, and its thick reinforced edges, the tyre is able to offer effective resistance against obstacles and uneven surfaces. In short, the tyre offers better protection against damage, and thus a longer life-span. And the special S-shaped profile has allowed us to create a stable and comfortable tyre with a low wear percentage.”

Extensive testing

The Aeolus ATR33 had to successfully overcome extensive practical testing at several transport companies before Heuver and Aeolus were prepared to launch it on the European market. Test results showed that the intended quality had been realised and that the tyre is very easy to mount. After the testing period, Mr Oegema - from the international transport company bearing the same name - thought the tyre could be great for his entire fleet of trailers.
