305-30R23 Continental Tyres;SUV tyres are getting bigger and bigger?
Every week we are discovering new types of tyres and with it new tyre sizes. Here at Pellon Tyres in the small industrial town of Halifax we do not often see many exotic or unusual cars. Most of the cars and tyre sizes that we see are pretty standard stuff. Our top selling size is pretty much the standard size for the whole country, which is 202/55×16.
However we do get the odd surprise and this Saturday was no exception. We were privileged to be able to sell and fit some tyres on a Mercedes ML “BRABUS,” now these cars are probably very common in the big cities, but this is the first one I have ever seen in my life.
Merc on huge 305-30R23 Continental Tyres
Another first for me was that the cars tyre size was 305-30R23 Continental Tyres, and as you can see in my pictures they are huge tyres. This was another first for me as I have never seen this size of tyre before and did not even know that the tyre size existed, (very exciting to a tyre geek like myself). 305-30R23 Continental Tyres are one of our favourites here at Pellon tyres, and i can truthfully say that i have never seen a faulty Continental tyres in my 35 years in the tyre trade.
Continental Tire Company now supply a massive part of the O.E. and after market with new tyres and their tyre range is second to none.

These days the tyre manufacturers such as Continental Car Tyres can develop new tyre sizes and tyre types of tyre very quickly, with the use of computer technology and data from the close relationships they have with the car manufacturers, hence the development of such tyres on the Mercedes ML “BRABUS”,Continental tyres are of course one of Germany’s leading tyre companies and has on going relationships with all the leading German car companies, such as BMW and Mercedes.
