Introduced recently in the United States, our customers include police departments from Miami to Medford (OR) and from Hartford (CT) to Los Angeles. LAPD uses Tyron on all SUV’s in their fleet. Los Angeles Sheriffs equip hundreds of patrol cars as well as the SWAT (SEB) Team. As our government ships hundreds of armored vehicles abroad such as Iraq for use in “theatre”, most all are fitted with Tyron. For vehicles involved in fighting fire, we have been approved for use and are fitted by Pierce and Wheeled Coach.
Tyron is the most tested primary safety product ever produced. To help protect you and your family from the dangers of tire failure, Tyron is now available for autos, SUV’s, light and heavy trucks, trailers, fifth wheels, towables, and campers.
The Tyron Safety Band was invented in 1977 and consisted of a special Aluminum wheel and Aluminum Tyron band. In the early 80’s due to a request from the British MoD, Tyron developed a range of steel bands for the Land Rover steel wheels, not only were they far stronger than the aluminum bands but also solved the problem of ‘catalytic’ reaction between the 2 different metals where the Aluminum bands were prone to welding onto the steel wheels preventing removal of tires when they needed to be changed.
In 2002 Tyron re-designed and patented a new Tyron MultiBand which is adjustable for height to accommodate the changing designs in wheel wells. The handling performance of the vehicle is improved due to the ‘plug in’ feet creating extra ‘grip’ between the Tyron band and the wheel outperforming all other Safety Band designs.
In 2008 Tyron invented the worlds first ever multi piece rubber runflat All Terrain Runflat (ATR) insert which can be fitted in the field to both military split rims and ordinary tubeless wheels, giving excellent off road capabilities with runflat capability of up to 100klm which far exceeds the Finabel standard.
In 2009 Tyron developed the unique R4 wheel for armored 4×4 and cash carrying vehicles. This super strong alloy wheel, with a load rating of 1600Kgs, incorporates an ingenious beadlock design. When fitted with our RSR-ATR they allow you to travel on or off road for over 50klm with all 4 tires deflated.
Tyron therefore continues to develop runflat technology for civilian and military wheel safety and security and offers support through its extensive world wide sales and service network.
You only fit Tyron once….. It could save your life!
