ERJ staff report (DS)
Stoke-on-trent, UK - Michelin has written to ATS Euromaster, Kwik Fit and National Tyres to ask how the three companies will deal with the introduction of Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS), following concern from members of Michelin's Fleet Panel.
Panel members expressed shock that valves could cost between Â£75 and Â£100 each to be replaced, and service and repair charges could be as much as Â£15 every time a tyre is removed. One member labelled it a 'flat tax on tyres'.
Dave Crinson, head of Fleet sales at Michelin UK has written to tyre distributors asking to explain how they will manage TPMS. He said: â€œIt became clear at our recent Michelin Fleet Panel meeting that all of our members would like more information about the system so they can fully understand the implications for their individual businesses, and the industry as a whole.
