4-6 March 2014, Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg

The most advanced tyre service equipment delivering better workshop efficiency and improved business profitability, will be a major draw for visitors to Tyrexpo Africa 2014 in Johannesburg.


The three-day show will bring together big-brand domestic and international suppliers of the latest digital tyre changers, balancers, wheel alignment and other under-body service equipment.

Among them will be show regular Leaderquip Auto Services, the franchised supplier of HUNTER wheel alignment equipment in Southern Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean islands. On display at Tyrexpo Africa will be the award-winning Hunter HawkEye Elite® Alignment System; the Hunter Road Force Touch® GSP9700 Diagnostic Balancer; and the Hunter Quick Check™ Alignment Audit System.

With an estimated 60% of vehicles in need of an alignment, Hunter developed the new Quick Check™ System to help workshops quickly identify these vehicles and drive more traffic to the alignment bay.

Quick Check™ captures toe and camber measurements and produces printed results in under a minute. Service writers can then use the easy-to-understand, color-coded printouts to alert customers of misalignment issues, helping generate increased business for alignment service.

Also on show will be the SICE S300 top-of-range tyre changer from Italy and equipment from Leaderquip’s new range of CARLEO lifting equipment from Taiwan.
