All Continental Tyres Stuff

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.

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.

Of course, this joint venture comes as no surprise to me? It is a well known partnership in Germany. By having your tyres fitted to new cars. Naturally, brings in new revenue . Hence, when the first tyres eventually start to be replaced. As expected, certain percentage of drivers will fit the same tyres as they have on their new cars.

Therefore, this gives Continental tyres a small foothold to add to its other sales in India. A natural move by these two German based companies.

305-30R23 Continental Tyres-Size 305 30R23 fitted to Mercedes ML Brabus Car.

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. 305-30R23 Continental TyresMost 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.

Continental tyres develop the sizes along side car makers.

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.

Many motorists decide that they would like to fit Continental tyres on to their vehicles. These tyres are a popular choice for those people who live in the wetter areas of the UK. This is because this is just one of the many good points that we bestow on the brand of tyre made by Continental  fitted to their vehicles as it has been proven to perform well in these weather conditions.

A large number of accidents that have resulted in personal injury. So. have  that happens when roads  are very wet and slippery. You’ll also find that road accidents are twice as likely to happen. Of course, on the wet road too . Including another important factor ! not to forget is that most of these vehicles will be running on bald tyres.

Because of these accidents. Drivers, tend to go for tyres that will keep them as safe as possible. Especially, during the bad weather. So, helping them to minimise the risk of being involved in an accident. It’s so important to make sure that you’re taking extra care. Especially, when driving in bad conditions Finding, that many people on the roads are driving. Consequently,without the correct tyres fitted to their vehicle.

Most people tend to think that the reason why driving in wet conditions

So, causes accidents. Because of the spray and through loss of visibility.Of course, the main danger is the risk of aquaplaning (Continental tyres are a great wet weather tyre). The cause for aquaplaning is a lair of water that forms between the tyre and the road and is then and this reduces your tyre’s grip and means that contact is lost with the road, the car could then go out of control causing an accident.

The way that Continental Tyres  have been designed. Of course, makes sure that they  perform to their best ability. Most importantly, when the weather outside is very wet. Tyres works is to disperse as much water away from the road as possible . So,by using centre drainage channels and having many water dispersing “sipes” therefore they will successful increase the grip on the wet road. You’ll find that aquaplaning with this brand  is at its minimal and dramatically decreased.

It still worth remembering though that your Continental Tyres must be in good condition with a good tread area, a bald tyre whatever the make will be dangerous on all road conditions.

Do not forget that the UK is traditionally a very wet country and also treats road safety as very important and although Continentals  are an excellent brand any new tyre will be a thousand times better in all driving conditions than a “bald” tyre. It is most important at all times of the year to have your tyres checked at regular intervals and always invest in a good make of tyres such as Continental tyres.

family saloons to the luxury end of the market.

Continental tyres are constantly improving their products, along with the other leading tyre manufacturers. This is to keep in step with the ever changing designs created by modern car makers, especially in Germany and Japan. The new premium Contact 5 is a few steps further on in development from the sports Contact 5. The new premium Contact 5 boasts much better braking distances in both wet and dry road conditions and has the same rolling resistance as the eco contact 5,making these tyres a whole lot better than there predecessors’.

The new tyres come with a few added benefits to add to better contact with the road during braking. They have what they call a 3D edge. The new design also includes a new type of shoulder zone, which reduces energy loss along the shoulder zone. All these extra features give the new tyres a lower fuel consumption, helping the motorist to reduce their fuel costs, it is expected that this could be as much as 12%, a good saving.

Continental tyres have also designed a more flexible side-wall to give increased comfort for the car drivers and with the addition of whisper bars the tyre is much quieter compared with the other tyres in Continentals extensive range.

Once again I must praise Continental for another wonderful tyre product, another step thanks keeps them in number one spot as the Worlds finest tyre maker. Please click the link a learn more on Continental tyres web site...www.continental-tyres.co.uk/passenger

Continental Van Eco Tyres-“New” Continental Tyres for Vans and Similar Vehicles

Post Updated 19th Dec 2013

Continental Van Eco Tyres;New Vanco Eco from Continental tyres improves fuel economy

Like most other tyre manufacturers Continental tyres are striving to improve their range to include much more economic and fuel saving tyres for the future. Continental Van Eco TyresIndeed Continental have just completed tests together with ford using the Continental Van Eco Tyres and achieved a much greater fuel efficiency by using this tyre , a great result for Continental tyres.

The new van tyre will have much less rolling resistance than previous van tyres , making this tyre about 4% more economical which means much less emissions. Continental tyres engineers have also designed the new tyre give car like handling by means of more comfort together with better handling on both wet and dry roads.

 Continental tyres first Vanco Eco tyre size

 The first Continental Van Eco Tyres to be made will be in the tyre size 215/75R16 com load rating 113/111 t/l. This size fits most of the popular vans around at the moment including Ford Transits,Mercedes Sprinters and VW T5 range.

Although 4% doesn’t seem a large amount of savings, you must multiply this by the total mileage that the van will do and the huge cost of the price of fuel and this will give the fleet or van owner significant savings. Here at Pellon tyres we have great respect and admiration for Continental tyres products and this new van tyre is no exception. We offer them online at www.pellonautocentre.com

Reduced fuel consumption and lower rolling resistance are the hallmarks of the new Continental Van Eco tyres for light commercial vehicles. Specially developed for vans such as the Mercedes Viano, Vito and Sprinter, Ford Transit and Volkswagen T5, Continental’s VancoEco boasts up to 30% less rolling resistance and a calculated four percent saving in fuel and emissions, than standard versions. At the same time engineers have managed to cut the braking distances on both wet and dry road surfaces making the tyre more car-like in its performance.

Uniroyal Winter Tyres- To Unveil (Two New 4X4 Tyres)-Plus the MS 77 SUV Winter Tyres

Uniroyal Winter Tyres;Pellon tyres in Halifax would like to introduce the new tyre from Uniroyal tyres,

A member of the Continental tyre group.Uniroyal  are introducing two new models to their 4×4  product range. The new tyres will be called the Rain Expert and the  Uniroyal Winter TyresUniroyal Rainsport 2 . Both these types are developed for the Uniroyal Winter Tyres SUV  market. These tyres are used for on -road use. Therefore, have been developed  to give extra grip to the SUV type vehicle.Especially, in heavy rain and more winter conditions.What Does SUV Stand For ?. Sport Utility Vehicles.
Historically this type of vehicle has been bad to handle in winter conditions and Uniroyal are one of a number of  manufacturers to develop products that will make the SUVs handle better in adverse weather conditions.The new Uniroyal Winter Tyres will be recognizable from the standard road tyres with the “SUV” mark on the  sidewall, and have a different product description on price lists etc.
This new one will be available in sizes from 17 to 20 inch diameter sizes, this covers most of the SUV models on sale today.

Uniroyal Winter Tyres

As a tyre dealer of many years.As a result, I can remember when Uniroyal first became established in Yorkshire. Uniroyal, set up a distribution centre in Seacroft an outer suburb of Leeds. Consequently,with easy access to the A1 motorway.  Becoming, part of the Continental  group. The Leeds depot was then closed. Then they re-located to Pontefract as were Semperit tyres. This was to make distribution easier for the whole group. But this was also to be closed down at a later date.

Uniroyal have also brought out the  MS plus 77 which is said to set a new standard for Uniroyal Winter Tyres. Tyre technology has been consistently designed to operate in  today’s winter conditions on our roads. This new tyre gives excellent grip and road handling features in anything that the weather can throw at them.

Naturally,with excellent performance on wet and cold surfaces and a high level of safety in snow. Of course, it is a new force in winter tyres.

Uniroyal will be well remembered by the excellent TV adverts that became very famous, because of the use of animals including chimps and other primates, which were swing in the jungle using a rope and a Uniroyal tyre. The idea I think, was that the animals did not slip in the rain using the Uniroyal tyres.

These Uniroyal tyres are available now from Pellon tyres

Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre offer car and van servicing and repairs to all makes of vehicles.

 

ContiSilent Tyres are made with black Chilli added to the tyre compound?

ContiSilent Tyres

contisilent tyres

ContiSilent tyres

Continental tyres are one of the world leaders. In using natural products to cut back on the use of petro-chemicals when making tyre compounds.

Continental engineers say that,” the Black Chili rubber compound is designed to mesh with the roughness of the road. At the same time, temporary atomic connections between the tyre compound and the road surface ensure high adhesion. Acting like small suction pads. Both factors make for the greatest possible adhesion in all directions. During braking, cornering, and acceleration on both wet and dry roads”.

These new tyres will be on sale for the use on high performance cars. The ContiSilent tyres were shown off and tested on the roads of Southern Spain, near Marbella. The event was attended by top motorsport journalists on a 300 mile stretch of roads, using cars like the Jaguar F-Type, Mercedes CLA AMG, BMW M4, Porsche Macan S, Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray and Tesla Model S.

The new design and compound mix is known as the ContiSilent Tyres. Therefore, this was included in the tyres used on these prestigious cars. Were the SportContact 6 and the ContiSport tyres. The SportContact 6 tyre with the ContiSilent technology. Were fitted to the all-electric Tesla Model S car.

ContiSilent Tyres

The tyre tests were carried out in tough conditions using the bendy mountain roads that are well known to Spanish visitors. Although I was not one of the lucky ones that attended, I have been to similar events over time as a tyre shop owner. This event was enjoyed by all who attended, as the cars with their ContiSilent

ContiSilent tyres

ContiSilent tyres showing the inner foam that includes black chilli

Tyres fitted were put through their paces.

One of the secret of ContiSilent is a special coating that is bonded to the inside of the tread area after the tyre production process. Because, this special layer of foam like material has a strong damping effect on the sound waves caused by the rotating tyre on different road surfaces. No matter what surface the vehicle is driving on, then there is much less road noise coming through to the car’s interior, making much less sound.

Finally, a great experience was had by all who attended, to witness yet another great innovation from the Continental tyre company.
