[Johannesburg, 2 February 2017] -
RunFlat International broke company records by shipping over 1 000 complete wheel systems within the first month of 2017. With an increasing business emphasis on complete wheel solutions, RunFlat International has invested in additional wheel/tyre fitting equipment, increasing its capacity and responsiveness to customers' requests.
Working with its sister company, Wheels International, which designs and manufactures a wide range of lightweight, high load capacity aluminium and steel wheels, RunFlat International has assembled complete wheel solutions (wheel, tyre, RunFlat systems), allowing a bolt-on wheel solution to the end-customer.
This service is available for all wheels and tyre sizes using the state-of-the-art wheel fitting and balancing machines, greatly increasing their existing capacity and enabling a more complete offering to customers for all their RunFlats.
