With the launch of this fast, light and highly portable web widget, Australian drivers will be able to instantly search and compare tyre models online anywhere on the web.

This is in line with our strategy to gain a significant presence in the auto service space this year

said’s Sales development manager, Nigel McBride.

CarbonBlack is already discussing white labeling options with several parties, as other service / parts providers realize how they too can provide unique information with a new revenue stream in mind

he added.

The tyre widget is currently in beta version, but CarbonBlack has made it available for anyone to use at

In the month of April, over a million tyre models were viewed on CarbonBlack.
Now, the technology can be incorporated into other automotive trade businesses with minimal effort.
