Our new Tyre Saver partner!



When it comes to Luxury Car Storage, we looked into the best way to preserve tyres whilst our clients vehicles are in our new state of the art storage facility here in Yorkshire. We spoke with TyreDox and learned more about their product, clearly finding out they are the best on the market in the world for this solution.

Tyre cushions are a fantastic car storage product, that when used correctly can increase the life of vehicle tyres and erase the need for future financial outlay.


 

Created by 2 self-proclaimed petrol heads, Sam Ellis, and Ben Ashton, the TyreDox concept was developed whilst working as Aston Martin specialists at one of the country’s leading dealerships.

“We saw that customers were regularly replacing expensive tyres, despite little use and often with really modest mileage,” said Sam Ellis, who at 24, is the youngest ever Concours Judge for The Aston Martins Owners Club.

With less than optimum vehicle storage and a lack of regular movement, tyres can misshapen, with the potential of ovalisation, flat spots, and a perishing of their structure leading to early replacement.


With performance and specialist tyres now upwards of £250 a piece, and specialists often preferring to replace in pairs, it can get very expensive very quickly!


In addition to the potential for tyre damage, leaving the handbrake on during long term storage can potentially risk fusing the brake pads to the discs, clearly far from ideal.

‘Having researched the existing solutions, we were surprised to learn that they were sometimes expensive, often poorly designed and occasionally just plain ineffective,” says Sam, “so we decided a fresh approach was needed”.


Made in the UK from 93% recycled crumb rubber, TyreDox’s clever shape integrates a grooved ramp for maximum grip, leading to a carefully designed concave cushion.

It’s the surface of this cushion which follows the contour of the tyre, significantly increasing the contact area to spread the load.


“We wanted to deliver a positive feel when the vehicle is correctly located’ says Ben.

“Enabling it to be stored without engaging the handbrake to avoid stretched cables, linkages and sticking brake pads was a key part of our design considerations”.


You can expect a set of TyreDox to cost less than a single premium tyre. Weighing in at over 7kg each they’re going to last too! They have integrated handles to hang out of the way when not in use.


TyreDox helps optimise car storage, so you can enjoy their use at any time without the worry of additional and unnecessary costs.

In fact, they are ideal for use with most single axel vehicles in storage for medium or long periods.


• TyreDox’s carefully designed rubber surface increases the tyre contact area, significantly spreading the load to minimise flat spotting and ovalisation.


• With 93% recycled tyre composition, TyreDox is the epitome of a smart material application.

This first in sector, rubber-on-rubber concept, reduces the risk of cracking whilst delivering excellent environmental credentials.


• The recycled rubber compound and grooved design provides enhanced grip performance with clean dry surfaces. Suitable for wheels up to 23 inch diameter


All vehicles on our Gold package will have a set of TyreDox for the duration of the stay. These are also available as an upgrade for other packages or to purchase outright. Please speak with a member of our team for more details.
