Beaurepaires: Tyres are your car's shoes, 3

The right fit?

Traffic heightened women’s interest in tyre buying by creating a campaign featuring their favourite indulgence – shoes. The cut through campaign for Beaurepaires draws analogies between tyres and women’s shoes and is designed to make tyre buying easier to understand and more female friendly. The new campaign appeared in top female publications, including The Australian Women’s Weekly, Madison, Grazia and Woman’s Day and is supported by an integrated PR and social media campaign, as well as advertorial and point of sale material.

I guess you have to be a woman to appreciate this campaign. I'm not feeling it at all.

Get over yourselves folks, it's clearly explained up there - released in women's/fashion mags to try and get women more interested in the tires on their cars. I don't know whether the shoe analogy came from the consumer insight people or the creative guys - either way it's an excellent campaign! Could probably have been executed better, but does a good job nevertheless.

Classic "Think of it as..." cliché.

I think it can be effective with women - certainly a fresh way to market tyres to a new, unexplored target group.

An elegant tire ad. Yeah, something new. Don't have a problem with it.

If you don't get it, means the ad doesn't work for you or there's something wrong with it. The rating system has a meaning. You rated it 5 stars, which it is a good ad. Make up your minds.

Like the shoes, not the concept.
