The compound on the Continental tyres, is generated from computers.So, to provide the tyres with tread pattern with, high-void all-terrain pattern with interlocking tread blocks. Of course, this is also backed by placing the sipes in a way that rejects and throws out pieces of grit and gravel. At one time tyres with many sipes would also be noisy when driving on normal tarmac roads. Naturally, the Conti tyres, with all their siping can now run much quieter, on normal tarmac roads, due to the computer design.

Continental tyres are experimenting by using the sap of the humble "dandelion" plants. Of course, this sap is also of the same molecular structure as latex rubber.

Of course that we now all know about the  growing awareness of the nutritional benefits of consuming foods made from soybeans. So, what are they? Soy beans, aka soya beans, are a species of legume and are often classified as an oil-seed. Naturally, soya beans are known to have been in existence in China some 5000 years ago. Having been consumed and including use, in medical preparations. Hence, for at least the last 2000 years.

It was many centuries later before soya beans are grown commercially in the western world. It took until 1906 in the USA and 1910 in Europe before there was deemed to be a sufficiently large enough market to encourage farmers to grow soya beans in significant enough quantities.

Now soya beans are used in millions of food products.

Of course Goodyear tyres like many other tyre manufacturers. have been looking for alternatives using rubber latex in their tyre products.

Soya beans have have become one of these natural ingredients that match the molecular structure of latex used in the production of rubber in tyres.

Other tyre companies that have come up with similar natural products are Continental tyres. So, Continental tyres are experimenting by using the sap of the humble “dandelion” plants. Of course, this sap is also of the same molecular structure as latex rubber.

Yokohama tyres are now using the oil extracted from orange peel skins. All these methods will give tyres a greener more sustainable tyre product in the years ahead.

Continental Tyres UK Ltd-Spies In Your Tyres? This Gizmo Will Help Your Car Drive Itself

Continental Tyres UK Ltd

Continental Tyres UK Ltd

A few years back, on a week long bus tour of Continental Tyres UK Ltd AG’s technology and engineering centers in Germany, one item attracted more attention from journalists than nearly any of the other whiz-bang connected-car stuff: A simple tire pressure monitor.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Continental Tyres UK Ltd new TPMS and more idea

This article written by Bob Gritzinger. Therefore, is all about the new ideas and inventions. Thrown about by the Auto industry at the moment. Consequently, this idea from Continental Tyres UK Ltd has now been tested on truck tyres. But at the moment I don’t know whether it has been a success or not. I suspect it will be effective. Because the concept of a monitor. Hence, vulcanised into the tyre. Relaying out information electronically about such things as tyre pressures and the inside temperature of the tyre is obviously of great benefit to the driver of the vehicle.

The device will be able to aid truckers. Because it will also be able to send the driver information. Thus, about the load that the tyre is carrying. Including  the traction details of the tyre, with this giving the driver the knowledge that the full load and road conditions can be checked as the truck is rolling along. I don’t know what sort of signals theIce road truckers would be getting from their in built TPMS tyres?

Continental Tyres UK Ltd

The new Continental Tyres UK Ltd valve sends out the information. Hence, out by wireless signals. Therefore, is picked up in the cab by the driver on an in-car system very similar to the ones now where the TPMS Valves signals are fitted to the wheels. Continental Tyres UK Ltd says that this is all part the future that may introduce the driverless vehicle to our towns and cities. If an object penetrates a

tyre the system will pick up the loss of pressure and stop the car in some sort of safe area and the problem reported and fixed.

Continental tyres keep on moving forward

Significantly, this is just one of the expansion plans . Including, a Continental tyres boost for the giant tyre company of Continental. Consequently, the Continental Car Tyres company and all its subsidiaries have leaped ahead of most of its

Continental Seal tyres protect the tyre from nail penetrations like this one competitors in recent years due to some innovative new products such as the “Seal Tyres” that contain a protective layer of sealant made of polymers, that stop the tyre from deflating when penetrated by a screw or a nail.

Continental tyre Sport Contacts

The protective layer is inside the Seal tyres,  just underneath the tread area. Other products to give a Continental tyres boost include “runflat technology” and new tyres that are greener and lighter to save on emissions for new EV and electric vehicles, altogether an impressive portfolio of products.

Continental tyres boost their market share by continuously adding new tyre products to their range. One of their latest tyre products is a new winter tyre the Vanco 4 season 2 tyres.

Continental Winter Tyres- Some Good Advise against driving on winter tyres all the year round

eric roberts‘s insight:

Winter tyres all year round

 

This has always been my point of view. Here in the UK we have had a run of mild and wet winters. Summer tyres fitted to our cars did the job of coping with this.

Then we started to have colder weather from November onwards. Motorists in Scotland were the first to react positively. Thus, to this colder winter climate. Starting to fit winter tyres to their cars. Much the same as the other European countries. Most of Britain’s winter tyres were diverted to Scotland by the big wholesalers.

As the weather became worse as the years rolled on. Of course, then winter tyres became more popular in Northern England. We now have started tyre companies using winter tyre “hotels”. Including here at Pellon Tyres in the UK. Consequently, we will store and refit your winters each season, now very much the same as the rest of Europe.

This guy from Continental Tyres UK Ltd has said the opposite to me, by stating that in his opinion that Continental Winter Tyres should not be used all of the year, this is a complete turnaround by Continental, but I have the opposite view and think that they would be much for the motorist in all types of weather.

Continental Winter Tyres To update my thoughts,

As I have said on many occasions British drivers are coming to terms with the fact that fitting Continental Winter Tyres in November early December to increase safety for themselves and the other road users, in the bad winter weather.

It is also advisable to re-fit your summer tyres after the Continental Winter Tyres has finished around Easter time, or at least after March. This is because there are two differences between summer tyre and winter tyres that are easy to explain. The one that is most obvious is that the tread pattern of the winter tyre, is made up of millions of sipes, these are tiny slits in the tyres tread, that get rid of the water, snow and slush that you will encounter at some stage of the winter period.

The summer tyre tread pattern is of a simpler design and performs differently to the winter tyre, as drivers who get stuck in the snow know to their cost.

The tyre compound is the second main difference. The Continental Winter Tyres compound has additional chemicals in the mix, including “silica”; this keeps the tyre flexible in freezing weather. The summer tyre does not have this additive in the compound and so when the temperature drops below 7 degrees C then the tyre carcass becomes rigid and  they do not handle well on a nice hot sunny day.

And so to finalise, Continental are correct in saying that it is best practice to change back to summer tyres are to rotate summer and winters at the end of the relevant seasons.

Continental Tyres Earnings Down-Raw materials costs eat into Conti’s earnings -The Tire Dealer’s No. 1 News Source

Continental Tyres Earnings Down

Continental Tyres Earnings Down

Continental Tyres Earnings Down

Conti have always been a well respected and forward thinking tyre manufacturer. In 1892 Continental became the first German company to manufacture bicycle tyres. As a result, that where solely manufactured from rubber. In 1901, one the very first models of Mercedes equipped with Continental Tyres  . Won the prestigious Nice – Salon – Nice motor race. Then, in 1904 Continental became the first company to release a tyre with tread cementing its legacy.

Continental tyres celebrated their 50th anniversary. They were to be the first German tyre company to add textiles to the tyre product with the addition of cord casing onto the market. Linen was the material that was used before this new method. This discovery was now to be replaced with a more workable cord fibre fabric. At the same time, they started to make large pneumatic tyres fit trucks.

Continental Tyres Earnings Down due to raw material costs

One of their latest innovations to take tyres into a greener future. Has been the introduction of “dandelions” into the compound mix. These dandelion plant saps are very similar to the molecular structure of rubber latex. Of course, these tyres are still on trial but things are looking very favourable.

Continental tyres then bought a large share of Czech tyre company Barum, another famous budget tyre brand, along with 50 tyre dealer outlets. They had amassed more than 2000 tyre retailers across 18 European countries and were now becoming contenders for the largest tyre company in the World, a feat that they later achieved.

Raw materials are eating away at some of Continentals profits. These increases are eventually going to affect all their tyre products. However I think that all the major tyre companies are suffering in the same way.

Pot-holes are an ever increasing nightmare for British road users. Continental Tyres Engineers discuss tyre construction, and explain the implications for tyres.

This Continental tyre came to an end when hitting a hole

As a result, we have the same problem here in Halifax GB. Hence, as the rest of the World. Concerning the “POT-HOLE” problems. Consequently, it now looks like Continental Tyres Engineers are taking a look at the effect these

holes have on their products.

Subsequently, the tyre on the wheel in my picture . Was the victim of an Audi . Driven by one of my customers hitting a pot-hole. As a result, on a major road at speed. Resulting in  a very bad experience. Unfortunately, for the Lady. By the way the make of tyre was a  Continental. Of course, she did not blame the tyre . Especially, when I explained to her . What had caused the tyre to blowout,

Here are some facts about potholes from  the http://www.potholes.co.uk/facts

  • Pot-holes are a major factor in causing axle & suspension failure, which counts for a third of mechanical issues on UK roads and costs British motorists an estimated £2.8 billion every year.
  • Authorities currently pay out more than £30 million in compensation claims due to poor roads
  • Road maintenance in England and Wales is underfunded by around 55%, or £1 billion every year.
  • At current maintenance levels, the average frequency for a road to be resurfaced in England is once every 54 years. In Wales it is once every 107 years.
  • If all authorities were given the budgets they need to fix their roads, it would take English authorities 12 years to catch up with the current backlog, and Welsh authorities 14 years.

Conti Car Tyres has been stepping up its line of products as it already delivers tyres which are equipped with a sensor that tells the user just how much…

 

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

New Tyre Advice just one of things to come?

Now that we will all be using TPMS systems in the future . So, it comes as no surprise that other gadgets will be developed.Naturally, to aid the motorist. Hence, in the constant drive for more road safety on our cars.

This new device from Conti will be no exception. Significantly, will tell the driver if the car is overloaded or not. Overloading is one of the main dangers associated with the cars handling. Of course, this can be very dangerous when cornering with an overloaded car.

No doubt there will be many more gadgets coming through in the years to come. Thus, to aid drivers probably on German cars such as the BMW’s and Mercs. Working in conjunction with the German tyre giant  Tyre Advice professionals . These devices will also become more common on vehicles such as caravans and motor-homes. So, as they will warn the driver of any loss of air pressure, thus resulting in a safer journey.

Uniroyal Tyres- Now under the same banner as Continental and General Tyres

Uniroyal Tyres

Uniroyal tyres in Leeds , UK

 My first dealings with the Uniroyal and General tyres brand was in the late sixties. Hence, Uniroyal Tyres had joined into a partnership with Englebert tyres. Of Liege in Belgium. Belgium seemed like a million miles away in the sixties.Of course, we had seen some experience with the Englebert brand.Because of the singer Englebert Humperdinck.Who was always in the music charts in those days.So, we used to call these tyres after the singer.uniroyal tyres

After the amalgamation. The brand became Uniroyal Englebert Deutschland AG. Thus, this came about in 1963. After a few years using that name. Then the brand became just Uniroyal in 1966.Hence, the year when England won the World cup at soccer.Naturally, well remembered by us oldies.

Uniroyal tyres carried on trading well into the 1970’s.Consequently, when they were sold to Continental tyres in 1979. Who began to make the tyres in its different European factories.As a result, including Scotland here in the UK.

One of the most advertised tyre products. Was in fact Uniroyal.We probably all remember the TV adds with an Orangutan.Thus, holding up an umbrella in the rain.For this reason, naming the tyre “The rain tyre”. Because, it was good in the wet weather. This name has still stuck.Hence, with the Uniroyal tyre brand. Naturally, and indeed we at Pellon tyres in Halifax UK are still selling this famous tyre. Which is still remaining a popular tyre brand for our customers.

 The tyre brand that helped Uniroyal tyres to become a household name was the “Rally 180”

 Also known as the rain tyre.Because of the umbrella symbol on the side wall. In 1991 Uniroyal tyres were the first company to bring out a directional tread design . The RTT-1 tyre. This design was copied by many other tyre companies. Therefore, proved to be very successful for motorists .

Winter tyres were also becoming more popular, with more and more European motorists driving to the ski slopes and Uniroyal did not miss out on an opportunity, bringing out the MS plus 44 winter tyre. This winter tyre became a test winner in many of the motoring magazine tyre tests, and consequently became very popular in the main ski countries such as France and Germany.

In 2007 Uniroyal brought out the “Rally 550” tyre which became a “Best buy”in many of the consumer magazines of the time and in 2008 Uniroyal tyres introduced the very good “Uniroyal Rainsport 2” updated by the Uniroyal Rain Sport 3 that we sell today.
