It’s been the most challenging year for the country’s tire industry.
The cost of building new tires and replacing old ones has been a major factor, as have the cost of repairing them.
But despite the cost, consumers in Ireland are still willing to pay the extra money to get a higher-quality tire.
“It’s not a one-off, it’s an everyday thing for us,” said Peter Fitzgerald, a tyre specialist at Cork-based Tiresmiths, which has a tyre plant in the village of Monrood and manufactures the tyres that run on the roads of Ireland.
“We have to pay for our labour every day, so if we can do that on a budget we can afford to do that.
We’re doing a lot of research into replacing the tyres and the tyres we sell are really good quality.”
Tires can cost as much as €2,000 and up to a million euros.
“In the last five years we’ve had to look at what other industries are doing,” said Mr Fitzgerald.
“In our industry we have to find a cheaper way to do it.”
He’s not the only one who thinks so.
“We’ve got people out there who are not sure what to do with their life,” he said.
If you’ve had a good career you can go back and buy one and spend that on other things. “
If you’ve got a good job you can afford a good pair of tyres.
When I buy a tyre for the first time I’ve got to make sure I’m getting the best possible price.” “
But there’s no money in your pocket if you’ve lost your job.
When I buy a tyre for the first time I’ve got to make sure I’m getting the best possible price.”
The company’s tyre supplier, Nissin, was established in 1999 and is based in the UK.
Nissins is one of the biggest tyre makers in the world and it’s the company that makes the tyres used by motorists on the Irish roads.
Tire prices are set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which determines which tires are suitable for use on the road.
Its annual inspection reports have revealed that in recent years, the number of tyre complaints has increased, partly due to more competition from the European Union and China.
In the past year, Nisse has also reported a 10 per cent increase in tyre thefts.
This year the Irish Government has been asked to introduce tougher rules on the sale of tyre replacement parts to the public.
The government’s report has suggested that the price of replacement parts should be set by an independent company that does not have the power to set prices.
But the Irish Department of Transport says there’s not enough regulation around tyre prices to ensure they are reasonable.
Nissins said its tyres are now cheaper than the alternatives.
It’s the kind of industry that has been in the works for years, said Mr Fitz.
If you can get a new set of tyre that’s going to last you longer than the one that was on sale before, you should be happy with it.””
What people are doing now is buying a brand new tyre and they’re buying them on credit, but they’re getting a brand-new set of tyres that they’ll be using for years to come.
