Create new tyres manually

When not ordering tyres online from GroupTyre, you’ll want to add new tyres manually so you can track it’s stock and to know when you want to order more.

Please note

If you are ordering tyres from GroupTyre then you don’t need to do this, as tyre’s ordered from GroupTyre are automatically created as local stock.

Adding a tyre to your local tyre stock is simple. Once you create a tyre, you can then assign stock to it and it will appear when you search for tyres. To create a new tyre, simple head to ‘Parts / Tyres > Tyres’ and click ‘New’ at the top of the window, below the search.


Once you click ‘New’ the ‘Add new tyre’ form will appear.


Tyre information

As you can see, you can add all the information that is specific to that tyre including:

  • Stock code
    A stock code relevant to your business. We recommend prepending it with the tyre size without spaces or slashes. E.g. 2051555-YourStockCode
  • Barcode
    A barcode number if you have one available.
  • Description
    Free text. You can enter a description of the tyre here if you wish.
  • Width

  • Rim diameter

    Whether or not it’s a seasonal tyre. Options are Summer, Winter and All Season.

Tyre stock information

As well as the tyre info relating to the tyre, you can also add the following info, all of which should be fairly self explanatory:

  • Main supplier
  • Group
  • Minimum stock
  • Cost price
  • VAT code
  • Nominal code
  • Guarantee (in months)

Once you’ve completed filling in the tyre info, you can click print and VGM will generate a tyre label for you that’s based on the information that you’ve added. When you’re happy, you can click save and there is now a record of that tyre on your system, ready for you to create purchase orders in order to add stock.


The remember main supplier tick box will retain the selected supplier for when you next click ‘New’. This allows you to quickly add multiple parts to the same supplier.
