Protyre, the retail sister company of trade suppier Micheldever Tyre Services, has announced a network of 21 bike tyre centres which may well prove popular with retail customers, but less so for motorcycle dealers in the same area....

Protyre press release:

. 21 dedicated bike tyre centres created by ProTyre
. Money off voucher available via a new dedicated website
. Website pub style quiz tests biker's knowledge

The growth in interest and use of motorcycles and scooters has led Protyre, the UK's leading independent tyre dealer network, to invest in establishing 21 state-of-the-art, dedicated Two-Wheel Centres in the UK to cater specifically for the unique requirements of owners and riders of bikes and scooters. The new centres offer a "ride in and ride out service" and to further underline the company's commitment to this important market, Protyre has created a motorcycle tyre website

The new website is now live and will be progressively developed to provide in-depth sales information and advice and safety tips for bike riders. To mark the launch, Protyre is teaming up with Bridgestone to offer a £10 discount on the purchase of two Bridgestone tyres or free fitting as an alternative - a voucher can be downloaded from the website up to the end of June and it is valid to the end of June 2009. As an added incentive to visit the new website the company has created a 2-Wheel Challenge with 20 bike related questions - all the things you wanted to know about motorcycles but were afraid to ask!

The Protyre Two-Wheel Centres (location details attached) have specially bike trained staff with the latest tyre changing equipment ensuring that customers receive the best possible advice and service. Each centre has access to a stock of 20,000 motorcycle tyres from all major tyre companies including Bridgestone, Pirelli, Dunlop and Michelin.

Commenting on the launch of the Protyre Two Wheel Centres retail director Simon Hiorns said, "Most tyre dealers focus on car tyres and we felt that bikers were getting a raw deal hence the creation of our Two-Wheel Centres and our new website. We guarantee that our specially trained staff will provide the best possible levels of service and advice. Once again Protyre is leading the retail tyre industry and providing a first class service."
