Truck driver backs Michelin all the way

Stuart Nicol Transport's first driver, Stewart Peoples, continues long-standing support for Michelin as company nears 20 years.

News

The first truck driver ever employed by Stuart Nicol Transport is promising to continue his decades-long support for Michelin as the Lanarkshire transport and logistics firm prepares to mark its 20th year in business.

Stewart Peoples has proudly displayed Michelin branding on his vehicles and regularly painted his tyres with the manufacturer’s name ever since the haulier’s founder, Stuart Nicol, gave him a job as a truck driver in 2004.

Peoples said:

Michelin tyres have always been good to me. I love the brand. Simply put, they make the best tyres, especially in terms of grip and longevity. That’s why all the trucks I’ve driven since 1980 have had the Michelin sun strip. It still has pride of place on the windscreen of my Scania S730, and I take great pleasure in painting my Michelin tyres to keep them looking smart

His truck, specially customised for him by Stuart Nicol Transport, features Michelin XFN2 tyres on the front axle, with products from the X Multi range fitted on the middle axles and X Multi Remix on the drive axle.

Peoples says he can comfortably run the same Michelin tyres for up to two years, clocking up about 650km a day.

The truck is definitely a talking point. Wherever I go, other drivers often comment that it’s absolutely stunning. When I went to Gran Canaria for a job, the truck was like a pop star, everyone was taking photos

he adds.
