All General Tyres Stuff

Tyre makers have done many different experiments.Especially, with rubber compound mixes. Thus, to try and improve the rolling resistance of tyres. These compounds reduce the friction between the road surface and the tyres. Whilst at the same time retain the tyres grip. These compounds have been produced by companies.hence, such as General tyres, sold here in the UK. The new compounds also reduce the tyres weight. Naturally, and help in the total weight of the car.

General Winter Tyres-A must for Scotland and Northern England this Coming Week January 2019

General Winter Tyres

General Winter Tyres;Scotland a Winter tyres Haven

It is not rocket science to know that the further North we go in the British Isles then the colder it gets. Winters  have become a second nature to people living in Scotland and this is the time of year that the Scots get ready for the Inclement weather that will be heading their way. I have visited this beautiful country in all the seasons of the year and you can guarantee that if you travel in late Autumn  through early spring, that you will encounter Snow.

Scotland has recently enjoyed very good snow falls in their mountain ranges, especially the one that I am most familiar with, the “Cairngorms” you must visit their web-site to appreciate the winter wonderland and the great skiing conditions that you can enjoy there.

Apart from all your skiing equipment, there is one thing you must not forget ? General Winter Tyres are a must to be fitted to your car, before setting off to Scotland or if you live in Scotland you must fit a set on your car. Even if you are visiting the lower mountain ranges of Scotland you are advised to buy a set of snows. You could be caught out at any time during the colder weather after the late Autumn frosts.

Winter tyres are now becoming a necessity for Northern England

Motorists living in Northern England are now starting to become familiar with the same climate problems that they experience in Scotland. Anyone can now get caught out in a snow storm during late Autumn and the whole of Winter.

Most of Northern England are in hilly districts including the Pennines and peaks of Derbyshire to the North Yorkshire moors and the mountains of the lake District. This means that motorists in these areas require better gripping on their cars. The minimum that car owners require is a good normal summer tread pattern, when what they really need is one with plenty of tread on the tyres, but this will be rendered useless when the snow gets here and unless you have General Winter Tyres fitted you will be stranded even in flat districts.

General Winter Tyres will last for about three winters

Of course, providing that in Spring you change back to your summer tyres. Naturally, this service is carried out by many local tyre companies such as Pellon Tyre Centre in Halifax West Yorkshire. Consequently, when you buy your winters  they will store them for you and re-fit the summer ones. Of course,when the threat of any more bad weather has receded. Nonetheless,the first time you need them fitting is done free of charge. Followed by a small charge for re-fitting the following spring.

Nevertheless, this has been a large success in the past three years. Moreover,we are looking forward to seen our repeat business in the years to come. Many of our past customers tell us about many stories when people were getting stuck in snow. While they were able to get out of trouble because they have chosen the correct product for their car.

4×4 Tyres-Which are the right ones for you ? Consider the excellent General 4×4 Range

 Customers are still not sure which 4×4 tyres to choose

This article is a follow up from one that I did a few years ago. One of the problems that we have at Pellon tyres, comes from the owners of 4×4 vehicles who are not sure which or what tyres to fit to their vehicles.

In our area of Halifax in the Pennine foothills, we have several types of different terrains to cope with. Choosing the right tyre can be difficult.

Every tyre a manufacturer makes is designed with specific strengths in mind. How well it performs to these strengths depends on the construction methods, materials used and the technologies applied in the design and testing process. 4×4 tyres by definition introduce even more variables than these into the mixing pot. For our area we recommend a 50/50 or a 40/60 tread ratio between a normal type summer tyre and a rugged off road tyre. To make it a little easier to select the right one, a good place to start is to think about what you intend to use your 4×4 for. Many people used to say the Land rover as just a status car, where others such as farmers need Land-rovers for more practical uses, so a different tyre application is needed.

If you are intending to use your vehicle off road then you need to determine just how extreme the terrain is likely to be and how much time you are likely to spend on it. Farmers would be doing far more off road work and therefore would require a much heavier tread pattern on the tyres.

Off Road Grading Index for 4×4 tyres selection

To help our customers we use a very good visual guide called an (off road Grading Index) or ORGI for short, and then grade all the 4×4 tyres accordingly on our stock compute so that we can tell customers exactly which tyre is the best for them. The ORGI guide assigns every 4X4 Off Road tyres we feature with an off-road competency rating between 1 & 10. From here it is possible to disregard certain tyres as unsuitable and narrow the field of selection down. It works of an easy to understand scale from 1 to 10 depending on how tough you want your tyre to be, an excellent grading system. I hope this will be of help to all my customers who own 4×4 and SUV vehicles and want General 4×4 tyres.

General Van Tyres

Euro Van 2 new tyre from General Van Tyres

General tyres (part of the Continental tyre group) are keeping up in the lucrative van tyre market with a splendid new tyre, the Euro Van 2 tyre. The market for this product is huge, with the massive increase in the modern van market surging ahead.

Tyre manufacturers. Have now to make heavy duty versions of new car tyres. Because of the speed and comfort, that the new vans are capable of doing. Therefore, gone are the days of the smoky old diesel vans. Chugging along, holding the rest of the traffic up. For this, reason, these days vans can out perform, many cars and the tyres need to be of higher speed.Thus and load ratings. To cope with the extra performance that these modern vans can supply. General Van Tyres have taken all this into consideration.

The new General tyres Euro van is no exception. The newly developed tread pattern helps give the tyre higher mileage and better traction giving the tyre excellent handling on dry roads and a more improved braking performance.

General Van Tyres

For better comfort. General Van Tyres have developed the tyre with staggered tread grooves. Thus, on the shoulder reducing the noise. Giving a better comfort level to the driver. Noise reduction is also important for the green credibility of the tyre. In particular. With the new tyre labels coming out soon. Hence, that gives all tyres noise pollution levels. naturally, to help verify how green the tyre is.

As far as van tyres go this General Van Tyres product is one of the best van tyres that I have come across. People think that there is not much difference performance wise in van tyres, but they would be wrong in thinking that. The most important thing is to look at whatever make of tyres that you have on your van. The van tyre market is one of the most neglected of all the tyre markets. Van drivers usually work for other people, and they do not look after their tyres. So having a good brand of General Van Tyres in the first place is critical, because they are going to get abused, running at low and high pressures at high speeds are usually the norm for the van, only coming to garages when the need replacing due to lack of care.

The new General tyres van tyre will cover almost 90% of van tyre sizes
