Carter's Tyre Service is an independent, family-owned-and-run business with 36 branches across the North Island and Upper South Island, and affiliated with six General Tyres branches in Otago and Southland.

This partnership arrangement enables every competing karter in the country to run a Carter's Tyre Service or GeneralGeneral-Tyres-logo.jpg Tyres (depending on the club they belong to) decal strip across the top of their helmet visor.  And, better yet, affiliated KartSport New Zealand club members get special deals on tyres and tyre related services at Carter's Tyre Service and General Tyres branches nationwide.

The partnership has been further boosted via the support of Goodyear & Dunlop Tyres (NZ) Ltd with an “exclusive offer"  only available to KartSport New Zealand members who purchase Dunlop or Goodyear branded tyres for their cars, commercial and agricultural vehicles too.  Quality branded tyres on and off the track has to be a winning combination, no matter what.

Retail Finance for Karts and Engines

Gilrose was established in 1992 in response to a need for specialised consumer finance for the customers of retail storesgilrosebanner ad.jpg throughout New Zealand. We noticed a lack of fixed term contracts allowing customers to simply pay off their loans for their purchase. As a privately owned and operated company we are not publicly funded so you can be sure we will be around when you need us.
We enjoy a close working relationship with both customers and retailers and in response to their requirements we have developed leading edge technology to improve our processes for their benefit. Our application process is quick and efficient resulting in high approval rates and a quick turnaround. Sales staff and customers appreciate the simplicity and speed of our system and the flexibility to implement changes when required.
Personal choice is paramount when applying for finance and we believe Gilrose allows you that freedom. Whether you are a customer wanting to finance your purchase or a retailer wanting to offer finance, Gilrose is the obvious choice.
Gilrose is the preferred finance supplier to The New Zealand Retailers Association and The Jewellers and Watchmakers Association of New Zealand Inc.
