BILSTEIN Armoured Suspension Solutions has two core objectives:
- To provide the armoured vehicle manufacturer with complete bespoke suspension solutions, tailored to their specific needs, from prototype design to full production supply and all from a single source. Reducing design, test and procurement times.
- To collaboratively design full suspension kits that operate in total harmony, producing armoured vehicles that have ‘excellent’ handling characteristics and to include design features that enhance service life.
In order to achieve these objectives, BILSTEIN chose a globally renowned premium spring and anti-roll bar manufacturer to be its supplier.
RV Case Study: Keep safe with Tyron MultiBands
Tyron Multibands allow you to stay in control of your vehicle and get to a place of safety after a tyre blow out.
We recently received feedback from a customer in the US following an incident that could have had a very different outcome. He was driving a 42ft recreational vehicle and towing a Jeep on the highway when one of the RV’s tyres exploded. Thanks to having Tyron MultiBands fitted, he was able to steer the vehicle to safety without losing control, avoiding potential injury to himself, his passengers and other drivers.
“I want to thank you for providing this system that I truly believe saved my and my wife’s lives. I was driving my 42’ RV and towing my jeep, traveling north on I-75 just before the Georgia state line. I was in the middle lane doing 70 mph and surrounded by trucks when one of the RV tyres blew-up.
“I was able to keep the RV and Jeep straight, and avoided what could have been a disaster. The tyres were five years old with no cracks, and had done 27,000 miles. After this experience I wouldn’t drive without the Tyron – the best money I’ve spent!” – Jose Cuesta.
Whatever kind of vehicle you are driving – be it RV, Blue Light, security or personnel transport – the function and safety provided by Tyron MultiBands are vital in helping to maintain control of your vehicle following a tyre blow-out.

MILITARY ARMOURED VEHICLES
Military vehicles are designed and manufactured to a standard, not a price.
These vehicles operate in hostile environments and are designed to attack a threat rather than ‘run-away’, for these reasons mobility is crucial and the runflats must be able to guarantee beadlock, absorb impacts when off road and be impervious to ballistic attack.
Runflats must give a minimum guarantee of 50km and it is desirable that they can keep going for 100km without the tyre slipping on the rim.
All Terrain Rubber (ATR) runflats are designed for off road and military vehicles. The Tyron ATR-MP range are the only rubber runflats that do not require special equipment and hydraulic presses to change the tyres.
Only rubber can guarantee Beadlock which is necessary for guaranteed performance, composite runflats are up to 50km! the ATR range is 50km PLUS.

SECURITY & VIP VEHICLES
By their very nature security and VIP, vehicles must keep moving and get their occupants out of danger.
These vehicles frequently need to look no different to the standard one but tyres, wheels and brakes must be able to manage the extra weight that comes from the armouring and other elements of the vehicle which have increased in comparison to a standard vehicle.
In the event of a puncture or blow-out the Tyron MultiBand is guaranteed to “lock” the tyre on the wheel rim allowing the driver to retain control of the vehicle reducing the risk of an accident and to continue to a safe place to change the wheel or seek assistance, reducing the risk of personal injury.
Lightweight, so as not to affect fuel consumption, acceleration and braking and with no moving parts it does not affect the balancing of the wheels, maintenance free and fitted once for the life of the vehicle and its occupants.
he Multipart All Terrain Rubber Runflat (ATR)
Tyron has developed and patented a multi part rubber runflat suitable for fitting to a wide range of military, security and VIP off road vehicles. Made out of rubber the Tyron ATR absorbs the shocks from bumps and kerb strikes much better than a hard composite solution and reduces the damage to both the wheel and the tyre, so that both have the potential of being re-used when repairs have been carried out. Using rubber also gives the passengers inside the vehicle a more comfortable ride in the case of a tyre burst, which enables them to be in better shape to carry out their task.
The patented multi part design allows the fitter to change a tyre even at the side of the road without special tools.
Tyron’s rubber runflats incorporate a beadlock which is over manufactured to guarantee the wheel will not rotate and slip inside the tyre, this allows the vehicle to continue on its mission and get back to base which is not possible using other materials.
COMPLETE WHEEL ASSEMBLIES:
Tyron in partnership with Global Wheels in South Africa and Michelin, Pirelli and Continental tyres in the UK are able to supply complete assemblies.
We manufacture 2-piece bolt-together wheels from 16” to 22.5” in steel and aluminium able to carry loads from 1600kg – 5,800kg per wheel.
