At Megatyre, our core tyre brands are Hankook, Kingstar, Linglong (including Green Max and Crosswind) and Sunny Wanli; they give us a balanced, quality, highly competitive product range which we are loathe to stray from.
But over the last 15 years we have also sold the Triangle Tyres brand from time to time. It has never been one of our core products and we have never been particularly serious about stocking it. Its just that we keep getting random product offerings from Triangle that are too good to ignore. And for a cheap Chinese tyre, they are quite good, especially their non directional and asymmetric tyres. Actually, we have had very good customer feedback about Triangle Asymmetric tyres. Megatyre makes no attempt to stock the entire range, we just cherry pick the best deals for the benefit of our customers. Sometimes we might have say 12 Triangle tyre sizes in stock, sometimes we may have none.
So just who are Triangle? Well the Triangle Group of tyre companies was formed back in 1976 by the Weihai Government in China to make tyres for street sweeping machines. Obviously Triangle has grown hugely since then and now ranks as the worlds 10th biggest tyre company with over 1100 tyre patterns for everything from small cars to large 4wds, tractors, buses, heavy earth moving equipment and motorbikes. The operation was privatised about 12 years ago and is now a very significant private company.
Basically we have no intention of ever making Triangle one of our core products, we will just keep on buying their super low priced deals when they are available.
