The 2011 Brisbane Truck Show from 5-8 May will host the launch of Goodyear’s latest commercial tyre innovations for the Australian market, the UrbanMax MCA and Omnitrac MSS II and MSD II.

Taking place at the Brisbane Exhibition & Convention Centre, the CVIAQ event will showcase a huge range of trucks, trailers, transport equipment and technology, including the exclusive unveiling of the UrbanMax and Omnitrac tyres at the Beaurepaires stand throughout the weekend.

David Hamilton, Goodyear Commercial Product Manager, explains that the innovative new products are significant introductions for the industry. “The Goodyear UrbanMax MCA, an all position tyre, is specifically designed for use by municipal vehicles operating in tough urban environments and offers high mileage, enhanced damage resistance and superb braking, particular on wet roads,” Mr. Hamilton said.

“While the Goodyear Omnitrac MSS 2 for steer axles and Omnitrac MSD 2 for drive axles offers mixed service vehicles the latest in Goodyear’s Max Technology platform packed with benefits including enhanced mileage and traction.” “We believe that these tyres set a new benchmark in the municipal and mixed service markets.”

Goodyear UrbanMax MCA

New UrbanMax Municipal Tyre Gives More Mileage

The UrbanMax MCA is a member of Goodyear’s innovative family of Max Technologies, which use latest technology materials, dedicated tread patterns and durable carcass construction for the new range of city buses, garbage trucks and other municipal vehicles. “The Goodyear UrbanMax MCA is a significant new product for our customers and the industry. The biggest improvement is in the mileage these tyres offer,” Mr. Hamilton said. “Tyres in municipal operation suffer from rapid wear rates caused by frequent stopping and starting, tight turning circles and casing damage from grinding against curbs.

“To address these common tyre issues, in addition to significantly higher mileage, the UrbanMax MCA features reinforced sidewalls, which provide increased protection against curb damage, and sidewall wear indicators to identify worn sidewalls. Low noise emission is a further advantage for passengers and the environment.”

The tread of the UrbanMax has a wide five-rib pattern for high mileage, low noise and good handling. Edge blading gives excellent wet performance as well as even wear. The hi-amplitude centreline gives the MCA its all position capability as it provides traction. Finally the shoulders are non-intrusive for damage resistance.

Omnitrac MSD II

Goodyear Omnitrac ‘Next Generation’ Mixed Service Tyres
Goodyear’s latest truck tyres for mixed service applications, the Omnitrac MSS II and Omnitrac MSD II, are the newest Max Technology products from the tyre manufacturer, and offer a wide range of benefits for operators of tippers, concrete mixers, mining vehicles and other vehicles in the construction world. “Enhanced mileage and traction with greater damage protection are the main benefits of the Goodyear’s Omnitrac MSS II tyre for steer axles and Omnitrac MSD II for drive axles,” Mr. Hamilton said.

The UrbanMax MCA and Omnitrac MSS II and MSD II will be unveiled at the 2011 Brisbane Truck Show from 5-8 May

Fifi Box on Sunrise

Fifi Box on Sunrise

American Team Jets In
For National TV Truck Make-Over!
The award-winning RealWheels Corporation of Chicago will fly in to Brisbane to team up with Western Star Trucks and Queensland based national accessory distributor TRADE ONLY to put on an amazing display of truck make-over magic!
This spectacular event aimed at promoting the forthcoming May 14 -17 Queensland Truck & Machinery Show will take place in the city centre at Brisbane’s Reddacliffe Place on Monday May 11 in front of a national audience broadcast live by Channel 7’s ‘sunrise’ breakfast show, hosted by the effervescent and irrepressible Fifi Box.
In a matter of hours a brand new truck will be transformed into a sparkling chrome and bodywork masterpiece that will enthrall the crowds.
The vehicle… aptly named the ‘Sunrise Express’ in honour of the TV show will then be transported to the Brisbane RNA Showgrounds to remain on display throughout the Queensland Truck & Machinery Show, now the largest event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

The ‘Sunrise Express’ will start the day as a stock standard Western Star 4800 prime mover, it will then be outfitted with many aftermarket accessories and trim parts with the entire build process captured during Australia’s number one national breakfast show.
Following a year of extensive road-testing, research & development a new line of commercial truck products are about to be unveiled to the Australian market by the USA based manufacturer. RealWheels recently named Trade Only as their exclusive Australian Distributor and will combine efforts during the Truck & Machinery Show this year.
“We are so excited to have Trade Only as the exclusive distributor of our products in Australia.” said RealWheels Vice President, Jhan R. Dolphin “and we are thrilled to visit Australia and work side-by-side with them on the Sunrise project, and the upcoming Truck & Machinery Show.”
Jhan added; “We have always received a great deal of interest from customers in Australia, and so we are really pleased to finally provide them with easy access to our products.”

Queensland based TRADE ONLY Managing Director Lance Gillies, added his support by stating;
”The award-winning RealWheels Corporation has been producing vehicle enhancement products for over 30 years and have created some unbelievable custom vehicles so it’s great to have them visit Australia and participate in the ‘Sunrise Express’ project.”
The team at RealWheels Corporation (RWC) have been responsible for the design of some of the coolest customized, themed vehicles in the world. They built that amazing Hummer that rolled on tank treads instead of wheels, custom sports cars and even modified big rigs.
Another high-profile vehicle project was built by RealWheels Corporation for Illusionist, Criss Angel and his American television series Mindfreak and last year they customized vehicles for an HBO television series promotion. Currently touring the U.S. is an extremely customized project vehicle they built for legendary rock band Cheap Trick as a tribute to the band, cool cars, and the history of rock music.

“Many Australian customers are bored with what is available for their trucks.” Says Trade Only’s Lance Gillies. “The designers at RealWheels create extremely innovative products and now we can offer customers unique wheel accessory products that completely enhance a trucks appearance. In an effort to streamline the way a truck moves through air, we can also provide an aero-dynamic innovation, promoting better fuel economy.”
Come along to the CBD on Monday 11 May and visit for more details of the show.

Earth Cruiser at Brisbane Truck Show

Monday, May 4th, 2009

The world’s first unveiling of ‘Earth Cruiser’ and it’s made in Australia !
Regular readers could be forgiven for thinking the Queensland Truck & Machinery Show being held at Brisbane’s RNA Showgrounds this coming May 14 -17 will be an event just for the heavy vehicle and mining industry, but they would be pleasantly surprised!

For at the 2009 show there will be plenty to see and do for the whole family, with some amazing big rigs, trailers, diggers and earthmoving equipment to thrill the youngsters and some amazing creative and visually stunning concept vehicles to attract and satisfy any audience.
Amongst those who should consider a trip to the show would also be the adventurous holiday makers or the budding grey nomads and thrill seeking cross country and across the globe explorers who want to do it in luxury surroundings. Because on exclusive display at this year’s show will be the world’s first unveiling of ‘Earth Cruiser’ an all terrain 4×4 motor home that offers extended and comfortable travel to places that most people only read about in adventure magazines, while still benefiting from luxurious accommodation.

More than just a mobile home for driving around coastline and countryside ‘Earth Cruiser’ delivers the opportunity to adventure to exotic parts of the world that extend beyond the map where a standard mobile home could never venture! Extensive market research has shown that a medium sized 4×4 motor home with luxury and energy saving appointments that can simply be driven into a shipping container for international touring, is missing from the world stage.
Earth Cruiser is purpose built by ‘All Terrain Motorhomes’ a Queensland company owned and operated by two talented individuals, Kym Bolton and Lance Gillies, each with over 25 years experience in their respective fields.

The first ever EarthCruiser will be on the Mitsubishi Fuso stand at the Queensland Truck & Machinery Show RNA Showgrounds 14 – 17 May 2009.

Brisbane Truck Show Space Filled

Friday, May 1st, 2009

All Australian truckies should mark 14th to 17th May as a must visit day for the 2009 Brisbane Truck Show as the Brisbane Truck Show steams ahead.

The heavy vehicle industry and its peak body – the Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Q’ld (CVIAQ) is not letting the global economic crisis stand in its way!
Commenting on preparations for the 2009 Queensland Truck and Machinery Show to be held from the 14 – 17 May at the Brisbane RNA Showground’s,
CEO Brett Wright said;
“The 2009 event is destined to be a record breaker on all fronts. Despite the economic uncertainty we are expanding! We are already in the position to announce that all previous show exhibition space has been filled and all the big truck and equipment manufacturers are locked in, ready and raring to go!

Our waiting list of additional exhibitors now stands at well over 200 applications, all of whom are keen to get a spot at the show for the first time. So with the recent approval of our Traffic Management Plan allowing the closure of Gregory Terrace, we have been busy re-planning the show site and doing everything in our power to accommodate as many of these prospective exhibitors as possible.
Our forecast is that the 2009 Queensland Truck and Machinery Show will deliver a marked increase in exhibitor and visitor numbers, which is great news on the back of announcements of show closures among other motoring industry groups. Add to that the recent announcement of the 30% Government Investment Allowance which must be taken up by June 30 and all things point to a much needed boost for our industry.”
Brett concluded by stating;
“The Queensland show is the only industry owned and run event of its type in Australia where all proceeds are invested back into serving and supporting the commercial vehicle industry. As the premier event in Australia our aim now is to position the Queensland event as unquestionably one of the worlds’ premier truck shows, located in one of the very best destinations in the world for show attendees to do business, relax and enjoy!”

In further good news for the Queensland event, the 2009 show has been endorsed by new major industry sponsors such as Fleet Partners, BP Australia and Brisbane’s RiverCity Motorway Group, the people responsible for the new tunnel system running underneath the city.
