All Michelin Tyres

All Michelin Tyres

So, the compound on the Michelin tyres, is generated from computers. Hence, to provide the tyres with tread pattern . Of course, with, high-void tread pattern with interlocking tread blocks. Naturally, 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. lastly, the Michelin tyres, with all their siping can now run much quieter, on normal tarmac roads, due to the computer design.

Michelin Alpin 5 winter tyres-Really Worth Considering for the Harsh Yorkshire Winters

Michelin Alpin 5 winter tyres

Michelin also makes Michelin Alpin 5 Winter tyres

I was thinking that it is a good time to write this post about winter tyres when the winter is just a few months away and we did not have much snow this time last year  (at least not in Yorkshire UK). But we are Michelin Alpin 5only two months from next winter? So, (what the heck).

We find that more and more of our regular customers are now buying these tyres.  So many in fact that we decided a few years ago when we had our first cold and snowy winter, that we would start a “tyre hotel”. This is where the customer buys a set of winters and we fit the   Winter Car Tyres  and store the summer ones until the spring and then change the tyres over again. We charge for this service, but the tyres will last then three or even four winters, depending on the make and quality.

Michelin Alpin 5 winter tyres

This has always been a grey area to me? Which make of tyre do you recommend do you go for best which in my opinion would be the Yokohama winter tyre range, the Bridgestone Blizzac or the Michelin Alpin series including the new Michelin Alpin 5

 Michelin Tyres UK is probably the Worlds most respected tyre makers and like most French companies always bring French flair into the design process. This new Michelin Alpin 5 is

Michelin Alpin 5

Michelin’s involvement in motorsport helped in the development of the Alpin winter tyres

no exception to the rules. France has many mountain ski resorts Snow Tyres and the Michelin winter tyres are well tested and designed to give the French tyre buying public a no choice option, the French love to buy home brand products, as any visitors to France will not fail to observe the amount of French made cars that they buy and it is the same with other products.

Going back to the Dark Age’s winter tyres were chunky things with loads of tread rubber and were very noisy. Only rich people could afford them because they had to have them fitted to go abroad (mainly France) on skiing holidays. Because of the heavy tread patterns, the tyres were very noisy and no good for travelling at speed on motorways. Tyre manufacturers began to refine these tyres as our cars became faster and more motorways were being built across the whole of Europe.

Drivers in Germany would set off skiing for a long weekend in their BMW’s and Mercedes.

travel down the Autobahn (German Motorway) at 100 mph+ and then go up the mountains of Austria and France for a weekends skiing. It was clear that a different type of winter tyre had to be developed to cope with this new type of driving experience. Michelin developed the Michelin Alpin 5 and other tyre makers followed. They used different compounds (silicas were added) and included thousands of small slits in the pattern design, known as (Sipes) .

These sipes did two things scattered the snow, mud and water and made the tyre much quieter to drive on and therefore a more comfortable drive at speed on the motorways in winter.

This is where Michelin winter tyres are the leaders.

The new Alpin 5, has been even more improved to give even more driver comforts when using their cars in the winter months whatever the weather throws at them.

 The studies conducted by the Traffic Accident Research Chair of Dresden University in Germany (VUFO)*, European motorists drive mainly on cold roads in winter, whether dry or wet, but do not have to deal with snow very often, although since the report we have experienced an increase in colder weather and more snowfall. The report showed that 92% of accidents occurred on dry or wet roads and the remaining 8% on icy or snow covered roads. This where the winter tyre gives the motorist protection in winter with winter tyres fitted to their cars, they are more protected even on wet roads with winter tyre fitted.

Michelin Star Awarded

This attached article has a special meaning for me. Not just because we sell Michelin Tyres, but we are regular visitors to the “Star Inn” a Michelin one star restaurant in North Yorkshire. Whenever I see an associated article then I tend to cover the story. As in this case?

As a result then the Michelin guide carries more listings than any other food guide. Depending upon its extensive scheme of symbols the guide will explain every establishment in just two lines. The best thing about Michelin guide . So, is that it claims to visit the listed establishments once in every 18 months. Hence, on an average to ensure that a restaurant maintains its standard and keeps the rating updated.

Of course, as an excellent chef you must strive to know the recipes of a variety of dishes. The sign of a quality chef, if you wish to make a mark in the culinary world. Then you must aim to win a Michelin Star awarded by The Michelin Guide. Indeed the Star In has never let us down. I am no food expert but the flavours are out of this world. All the food is sourced locally in the area of North Yorkshire including sea food from the Yorkshire coast.

Michelin Star Awarded

Star Inn Harome near Helmsley in North Yorkshire

As a result this lady selling “street food” must have to adhere to the same rules and regulations as the Star Inn. The Michelin Red Guide is a series of the annual guidebooks that is among the oldest and most popular European and worldwide restaurant and hotel guides. They also publish green guides for tourism and travel.

The Michelin star awards are honored to the restaurants that offer finest food without considering the cuisine style. Michelin stars account only for the food served on the plate. Other attributes including the ambiance and look of the restaurant do not play much importance in deciding the final ranking . Although in my opinion one usually follows the other.

Wherever you are in the world you must try and seek out a Michelin star restaurant. It is a great experience and not much more expensive for the quality of food and drinks.

Performance Car Tyres? are they any Different to the Rest?

So as you can see Michelin Performance Car Tyres have a tyre specific to Mercedes cars with a sidewall marking of MO. This car should be replaced with the exact same tyre (Are they different)

Performance Car Tyres are becoming a category on their own. The reason I say this is because more and more of the top tyre manufacturers are teaming up with the car producers, to develop a tyre that is specific to that car. These tyres have even got markings that specify which car the tyre should fit. Here is a example list of the current tyre markings courtesy of Michelin Tyres UK.

E.g. MICHELIN Primacy HP MO      MO is a Mercedes specific marking
E.g. MICHELIN Pilot Sport PS2 N3  N is a Porsche specific marking
E.g. MICHELIN TM ENERGY Saver *        * (star) is a BMW specific marking

The rest can be seen on http://www.michelin.co.uk/tyres/learn-share/tyre-basics/how-to-read-a-tyre-side-wallPerformance Car Tyres

So as you can see Michelin Performance Car Tyres have a tyre specific to Mercedes cars with a sidewall marking of MO. This car should be replaced with the exact same tyre as the one that comes off, and it is important that the drivers of these performance cars are aware of this.

The tyres are designed around the characteristics of certain cars and the tyres will complement the cars attributes. For instance performance cars are usually heavy vehicles that can

accelerate and in general go very fast. The Performance Car Tyres on these cars have usually been developed with a softer compound that your standard road use. The tyres are also lighter in weight and this combined with alloy wheels, help make the car more fuel efficient.Performance Car Tyres

If you are the owner of this type of car you should be aware that these Performance Car Tyres do have a part to play in the general performance and handling of your car, so when you are buying your tyres make sure that you are buying tyres that are like for like. The tyre manufacturer will have other tyres in their range that are just the same size and name, but they do not have the car makers sidewall marking on them and so are not the same tyre.

Tyres for performance cars are made to help the car perform better on cornering and steering,

also aiding the cars noise levels on different road surfaces. Other leading brands of tyres that make tyres for performance cars are include Pirelli, Continental and Yokohama tyres, so drivers have a good choice of brands on the replacement market.

Michelin EverGrip

Michelin EverGrip

We know that wine gets better with age, but tyres? Well, that’s what Michelin tyres promises. The French company claims to have developed a new technology called Michelin EverGrip that allows tires to not only maintain, but also improve …

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Michelin tyres that grip better when they wear down.

This new tyre from Michelin Tyres UK, ( who are no doubt in my mind a great innovative tyre company and have always been at the forefront of tyre development over the years),will be called the Michelin EverGrip, because that’s what the tyre will do. Normally as tyres wear down they eventually become bald, without any tread left. In motor racing bald tyres or slicks as they are known are used on dry weather tracks because of their ability to grip better and hold the road better, but once they are subjected to any bad weather ,even a rain shower they become useless and slide all over the place.

Michelin EverGrip

The new Michelin EverGrip work the opposite way. The sipes or rain grooves get bigger as the tyres wear down and also have another set of grooves that can only be seen when the tread wears down to a certain thickness, these are on the shoulder of the tyres. The compound of the Michelin EverGrip tyres is also made of different products and not just petro-chemical based. The new products used are in fact sunflower oil and different silica’s. This is also in line with Yokohama tyres who now use orange oil as part of their compound materials and is a general trend of tyre companies to look for more natural and greener products to reduce the reliance of using petro-chemical products when manufacturing the tyres.

The new Michelin EverGrip will be available to buy in the USA after April and will be available in 32 popular sizes. The rest of the World should see this new tyre shortly afterword’s.

Michelin Bikes radial tyres-have been developed for superbikes

Michelin Bikes radial tyres

NEW DELHI: Michelin Bikes radial tyres-French tyre major Michelin tyres is looking to have a bigger play in the Indian two-wheeler market for which it is expanding its product portfolio.

 

 

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Michelin tyres are always at the frontier of tyre development now the Michelin Bikes radial tyres.

The development of these Michelin Bikes radial tyres. So, event does not surprise me in the least. In all my years in the tyre trade.   Michelin tyres have been at the forefront of tyre development. The main goal of the tyre manufacturers at the moment. Of course, is to produce tyres that are much lighter and at the same time use new materials that make the products more environmentally friendly.

The main goal is to reduce the rolling resistance of tyres in general. This means that energy needed to move a car forward is reduced, this makes the car more fuel efficient,

Michelin Bikes radial tyres

Michelin Tyres UK vintage poster

due to the design and construction of the tyres and this together with other  factors in a cars design makes the car far more fuel efficient and there for greener in the eyes of the consumer.

Developing new tyres

All this new development is carried out by working together with car manufacturers to develop a tyre that is best suited to the car that is been designed. This is one of the reasons that of late cars a coming onto the market with different sizes and aspect ratios than ever before, in my opinion making the job for us as tyre retailers much more interesting.

The giant French company has also being busy developing other tyre products such as a new run-flat tyre for cars. This is known as the zero pressure tyre or the ZP. It is different to the other makes of run-flat tyres because it drives with the same characteristics as a normal radial tyre. The other makes of run-flat tyres are a very hard ride, due to the very stiff re-enforced sidewalls, but the new Michelin Bikes radial tyres have used different compounds and are a normal ride compared to other makes of tyres.

MICHELIN WINTER TYRES – BMW M5 Calls in at Pellon Tyres for a new set


BMW M5 Comes In For a New Set of MICHELIN WINTER TYRES

As the owner of a Tyre centre here in Halifax Yorkshire UK, I am always pleased to see what I would call a special car call in for some servicing or repairs and also for some new tyres. This particular car was a BMW M5 in silver, the guy had heard about how good Michelin winter tyres were,especially Michelin Alpin Winter tyres were and so called into the depot and spoke to my son Aaron.

MICHELIN WINTER TYRES

BMW M5 with its new MICHELIN WINTER TYRES fitted

Apparently these tyres were like gold to get hold of so the guy thought that he would give us a try after he was let down by one of the larger tyre companies, who said that they could get the tyres but after a few weeks. Eventually they admitted that the tyres were unavailable and so he came to us to give us a chance to find the tyres for his M5.

The tyres he wanted were 295/30R20 and 265/35R20 Michelin Alpin winter tyres. One of the problems was the fact that this M5 was fitted with 20inch wheels and not 18 or 19 inch wheels. However we knew that the Michelin winter tyres were available in Germany and because we are a member of a tyre dealer group known as Point-S tyres, we were able to contact a German tyre company who were able to supply us with the Michelin Tyres.

The guy was very pleased with our detective work and Aaron promptly ordered the tyres. They arrived in four days and the guy brought his car in to us for the Michelin winter tyres fitting. The guy is a business man who often travels to Europe and was recommended to buy the Michelin winter tyres for his BMW, as Michelin had put many hours of research and development into the building of these tyres to compliment the BMW M5.

If you own such a car as an M5 only use the recommended winter tyres for that car

In my opinion tyres play a great importance to the car, especially when it comes to high performance cars like this BMW M5. Companies like Michelin Tyres put many hours into developing the right tyres for the right car. Michelin use their great expertise into their racing tyre division and into supplying tyres in massive racing events such as Le -Mans 24 hour’s race in France. All the expertise and development that Michelin gain in these events will be used in developing tyre products for companies like BMW and Mercedes, to be used on their premium cars.

To finalise I would totally recommend that if you are the owner of such a car, then you should stick to the tyres that are on the car from new and when buying winter tyres only use tyres that have been proven for your model, as our customer did on his BMW M5.Michelin winter tyres

This  will undoubtedly help the car reduce emissions. The new Michelin EV Tyres will be coming out as original equipment on the new Renault ZOE EV car. The new tyre from Michelin is not a cheap car tyre, but will be cost effective when it comes to lower emissions and savings on fuel, due the help from the Michelin EV Tyres lightness in weight. It will be fitted on many other cars including the other Renault range of cars such as the Renault Megane and many other brands of EV’s. I have noticed recently that some of the Continental brands are very light indeed weighing a third lighter than their predecessors.

Michelin Race Tyres may have Tested F1 Tyres in Le-Mans during the testing time?

 

Could Michelin Race Tyres Return to the F1 big boys ?

Michelin Race Tyres

Michelin Race Tyres famous racing brand

Michelin Race Tyres are probably the most active tyre company to participate in Motor sport. Michelin tyres have also been dominant in the famous French 24hr race at the Le Mans racing circuit. One of the highlights of travelling through France was when we were diverted on a family holiday, and found ourselves driving along the race circuit, I did not realise that the circuit was run on ordinary roads , which were closed when the racing took place, it was in the middle of the night and I thought that I had taken the wrong turning, but I felt better when I saw other cars on the road coming towards us. Michelin Race Tyres show their class and tyre expertise not only when making standard car tyres (if there is such a thing these day’s) but also in the field of motor sport. Michelin have been the most successful on the Le Mans circuit over the past 16 years they have been the tyre supplier and partner to the winning car a great achievement. This is due to the fact that Michelin Race Tyres produce a tyre that can complete the 50 laps without having to be changed.

For more information at…http://www.mymichelin.co.uk/race-series/24-Hours-of-Le-Mans
There are strong rumors from inside the racing fraternity, that Michelin Race Tyres will be competing for a bid to take over in F1 racing from Pirelli tyres, and that some negotiations have taken place. But these are only rumors. It is well known that the F1 bosses want to return
to the 13 inch wheel with high profile wide tread and that Michelin Race Tyres have said that they are prepared to produce this tyre if necessary.
Michelin is thought to have tested tyres that would give them data to build tyres that would be suitable for the heavier F1 cars that
produce heavier down-force and faster cornering speeds. The tyres were tested on the track using an Audi.

 

Michelin tyres don’t want to go alone

According to the online magazine www.racecar-engineering .com…

Michelin Race Tyres

Michelin Race Tyres in action at a race meeting

“There are still obstacles – Michelin tyres has always said that it does not want to be a sole tyre supplier, and the comments from Korean management suggest that a prospective deal with Hankook tyres is off. And it would have to be a partnership, or there would be a tyre war, although how that would pan out would be interesting – what’s the criteria? Who can build the best tyres over a ten-lap run? The prospect of Michelin Race Tyres going to F1 could have ramifications for Le Mans – Michelin is the tyre of choice for Audi, Toyota and Porsche in LMP1 alone. In the GTE classes, Michelin Race Tyres supplies all the teams and only Dunlop competes against them in LMP2. A Formula 1 contract could stretch Michelin beyond capacity. Lest we forget, Pirelli still has a number of promotional contracts in place in Formula 1 in 2014. Regardless of the listed rumors (and they are only rumors), are these contracts that they would easily give up?”…

Michelin tyre tactics

In my opinion Michelin tyres are still the Worlds leading tyre maker. Thus, offering tyre product excellence.

Michelin have in my experience . Always been the most expensive of car tyres to buy. Of course, the old saying of “you get what you pay for”, springs to mind . Therefore,we always find that it is the same type of well educated customers that ask for Michelin by name. Opposite to the “how much are they” brigade.

Michelin have always put expertise into the research and development of their tyres. Hence, making them hard to beat for quality.

Michelin tyre tactics

The Michelin premier AS tyre is the latest development to come from this renowned Michelin tyre tactics company. The tyre is an all-weather tyre and keeps the grip as the tyre wears down, making it one of the safest on the market.

The early Michelin tyre products were always lasting longer than their competitors. However, they had to combine comfort with high mileage. In my opinion Michelin achieved this by the knowledge that they gained from supplying motorsport. As a result, such as their inclusion in the track racing in Le-Mans South-West France. Of course,this endurance race (24 hrs) gives Michelin the platform to improve their tyre products. Consequently from on the track experience.

Michelin tyre tactics tested with motorsport in mind

It has been my opinion for many years. That a large percentage of car drivers. Simply, do not have any type of opinion. Thus, regarding the hard working consistent performer. Because many tyre buyers simply want cheap car tyres.

But the simple tyre is full of technical qualities. A close inspection will reveal that a tyre is a complex and sophisticated part of your car. Naturally, the humble tyre, has been developed over the years .To become the modern and safer product. Hence, for the faster and more energy efficient cars. That are being produced today.

Many of these new Michelin tyre tactics innovations . Have been developed with the aid of motorsport. Michelin are particularly strong at the moment supporting the Le-Man’s racing teams. But over the years have been the world’s leading Tyre Company. Hence, to support and develop the motorsport events. This experience has helped Michelin to make sure that their products will help to connect to the road much better.  Especially, when cornering and accelerating . Also just as important for when the car is braking.

What many drivers do not realize is that the humble car tyre is made up of 200 components and some of these play a vital part in road safety and the fuel efficiency of your car, in fact they say that a tyre is responsible for 20% of your cars fuel consumption and a glance at the new tyre labeling system, will show which come out the best.

Michelin tyre tactics-Michelin Energy Saver

In the these days of costly fuel prices then most drivers will want to  use less fuel and also have a safe tyre that lasts much longer, then the MICHELIN Energy Saver is made for you. Its modern and up to date technology is made to decrease your  rolling resistance, which also leads to reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions(1).

Michelin tyre tactics

Michelin tyre tactics to make a greener tyre

This is helped by using a 100% silica-based rubber compound during the manufacturing process. The part substitution of replacing some of the carbon black with silica in 1992 has helped MICHELIN to present its first generation of lower fuel consumption “green tyres”. Since these  were launched, Michelin has sold 570 million greens across the world.

Michelin versus Budget Tyres- Planned obsolescence is ‘quite developed’ in the European tyre market

Michelin versus Budget Tyres

Michelin versus Budget Tyres Michelin versus Budget Tyres

Michelin versus Budget Tyres

As a result ,of reading this along with other similar articles. Then I could not believe what came out from the giant french tyre company. Michelin of course. Consequently, many of the large tyre companies are now manufacturing tyres. That have a tread area that finishes at 3 mm. Of course, when I say finishes. Then I am talking about the fact that when the tyres get down to the 3 mm limit then the tyre sipes stop.

Therefore, this means that at 3 mm then the tyre is virtually “bald”. There are no sipes to drain away the water . Especially, on the Continental tyre range.

To me it is a no brainer. As a result, cars are getting bigger with the advent of the SUV and Crossover ranges of vehicles. Tyre sizes are also getting bigger and more technical tread variations are added all the time. So when it comes to premium versus budget tyres what should we expect?

Michelin versus Budget Tyres


Firstly, Michelin are of course a premium brand of tyres. Secondly, the budget tyres are primarily made in China. Premium tyre makers strive to make the best tyre products that they can . Inevitably, making the best products, using the latest developments and technology. Including sustained quality throughout the world tyre market.

Budget tyres are made for price alone. product manufacturing materials are usually pretty basic.Although I have no personnel experience, as I have never visited a Chinese tyre plant. However , I must say that we do sell budget tyres and they do a good job for the price . perhaps they do a bit less mileage . In general though we do not get many complaints.

Another consideration , is that premium tyres are also developed for different styles of vehicles . Some tyres are specific to a certain make of car. Budget tyres are however all made the same for whatever vehicles has that particular tyre size or of make of vehicle.

Many people may think they are saving money by buying budget tyres, and maybe they are in the short-term but in some cases any savings made by purchasing a budget tyre can be lost with lower fuel economy over the life of the tyre, or the loss of mileage, and that’s before you consider safety.

Michelin further re-affirmed its opposition to increasing minimum tyre tread depths (and of those that recommend changing tyres at 3mm) on 11 May when the company held a “The truth about worn tyres…
