TyreMarks of Tavistock are a General Tire dealer and local specialist of 4×4 and SUV tyres. The retailer works with the volunteer-led Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team to supply their emergency response vehicles with 4×4 tyres for lifesaving work.
Due to the importance of the service they provide, General Tire and TyreMarks have provided a set of Grabber AT3 all-terrain tyres to the search and rescue team to ensure they can carry out their work on any terrain without being hampered by tyre performance.
The donation from General Tire will not only enable the rescue team to continue to respond to emergencies on the wild and remote uplands of Dartmoor safely, but it has also saved the team hundreds of pounds in charitable donations that are used to fund the service.
Mark Tillyer, owner of TyreMarks Tavistock said: “When the Search and Rescue team approached us, we wanted to help them beyond just giving them advice. The service they provide for the area is incredibly valuable, and we are delighted that we could get involved and to give the volunteers something back in return for all their hard work.”
Dave Dineen, General Tire Sales and Technical Manager adds: “We were aware of the great work that Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team do for the area, so we wanted to show our support through this donation. The response vehicle is vital to them, and the Grabber AT3 tyres will help their vehicle deal with whatever conditions are thrown at it – allowing the team to carry out their crucial role in the community.”
General Tire, a brand of Continental, celebrates over 100 years in the tyre industry and offer a wide range of tyre patterns and sizes for car, van and 4×4 and SUV vehicles – remaining at the forefront of consumer choice when it comes to performance and quality.
