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.

Motorhome Tyres-It is Very Important to fit the Correct Tyres?

Motorhome Tyres

This problem is nothing new. Back in the day, when vans were becoming more popular, we had a similar problem. People, who bought these small and medium vans, were unsure which type of tyres to use.

Vans used for small businesses could carry some real weight. They would load their van up with all sorts of equipment that were used to carry out their jobs with. Caravans were also becoming more popular but I will leave that for another article?

motorhome tyres

Adam removing a wheel to fit new Michelin motorhome tyres to this large camper van.

The popular van sizes in those days were from a 155×13 radial to a 185×14 radial. Each of these sizes was made as a van tyre or a car tyre. The van tyres were made with a heavier ply rating to enable the tyres to carry more (or the correct) weight.

Our customers would always go for a cheap car tyre option and did not worry about the consequences of having a tyre blowout because their van was overloaded. This also happened on caravans, overloaded caravans fitted with car tyres that had the incorrect load rating. With a little knowledge the owners of these vans started to fit the correct tyres for the job. Vans became faster and were able to carry heavier loads, so were fitted with low profile tyres and it became necessary for them to fit the correct tyres.

Enter the motorhome tyres?

The caravan people also had problems with fitting the wrong tyres. I would go straight to the motorhome problem, because it is a more current problem. Because of the massive increase in motorhome ownership then there will be more motorhome/camping tyres sold.

This is something that is happening as I write this article. The thing is though, that the same problem as with the early van tyres? Drivers of these vehicles want to scrimp when it comes to buying the correct tyres for the job. In my opinion there is two options for motorhome tyres. The first is to fit a van tyre. The van tyre should be the same size, speed and load rating as the original tyre that is being replaced.

If everything is the same then you are within the law. Whatever you do, not try to revert to fitting a car tyre, of the same size, because the load rating will not be the same. Lower load ratings are what cause a blowout. This is one of the main reasons that you will see a caravan rolled over onto its side, or in a ditch.

motorhome tyres

Large motorhome ready to roll ?

As motorhomes became more popular, then some of the leading tyre manufacturers introduced specific motorhome tyres, for the camper motorhome owners. Michelin tyres, Continental tyres and Pirelli tyres all brought out a specific niche market camper/motorhome tyre.

When entering the camper tyre market. Tyre makers were looking at the strong tyre casing with a high load rating the same as a van tyre. Strong casings enable the tyre to carry much more weight. They can also cope with cornering and different terrains. After all you can see motorhomes anywhere. Not just on tarmac roads. This rigidity from a stronger sidewall. As a result, also prevents the motorhome tyres from swaying. We have all seen this when following an overloaded caravan.

It also very good advice, to drive within the speed limit, and also to avoid swerving.

My understanding is that the correct motorhome tyres are made with a different tyre compound than the regular van tyre, and this could be one of the reasons that the correct motorhome tyres a little more expensive. Certainly do not be tempted to fit regular car tyres, this has been asked of us a few times, by the

owners of older motorhomes, but this is a no go area.

Here in Halifax at Pellon tyres, we find that Continental and Michelin are the two most popular brands of motorhome tyres that we fit and thoroughly recommend them for your camper van or motorhome.

I would recommend that you look at excellent advice about motorhome tyres from the tyre safety organisation that I fully support…http://www.tyresafe.org/

Michelin Tyres buy 40% stake in French Online Tyre store, starts a series of take-Overs.

Original Article by Eric Roberts on www.wintertyres-yorkshire.co.uk

Michelin Tyres Throw Down the Gauntlet with the 40% Acquisition of French Online Company ALLPNUES

Wow I have been saying for the past two years that we in the tyre trade are living in interesting times, but this announcement is one of the most interesting stories I have yet to come across?

Michelin are going online?

This will be done with a 40% acquisition of the French online tyre retailer “Allpnues”. The online tyre company sold 3 million tyres online last year, which accounts for 7% of the French tyre market.

Michelin to use ATS as the fitting stations

Michelin have also announced that they are going to use their network of ATS tyre depots to carry out their fitting work, across Europe.michelin tyres

When I first read the story I thought that Michelin Tyres were just going to supply France and use the French ATS depots, but they say that they will be using al the ATS depots across Europe. I did notice that some of the local ATS depots were not doing any truck work anymore and have been smartened up for retail, and so this has been a plan of theirs for some time.

One thing is for sure, this will kick off repercussions amongst tyre wholesalers and will there be a big rush from the other tyre manufacturers to compete on the same lines. This effectively means that Michelin are missing out the middle man, which at the moment, are the big tyre wholesalers.

I can remember years ago when Michelin decided to go into ASDA to sell tyres. This too caused a huge rumpus and I think that it was ATS who eventually stopped the process and Michelin closed down the tyre shops within the supermarket. This time ATS will be one of the main players and have no complaints.

I also wonder what Michelin Tyres will do with other brands that Allpnues also sell?. Will they be pushing out their own product. I think so. It is a big investment to make just to sell Dunlop’s and Continentals products.

Whatever happens. For this reason. Has certainly changed the game big style? But I can’t help feeling that this is the way to go, it makes good business sense and will cut out the middle man as I have

Michelin Stars Story-So How did a Company selling Rubber Tyres become the World’s Authority on Restaurants?

Michelin Stars Story

It actually makes a lot of sense. It’s also genius marketing. But really, how did the world’s most talented chefs and esteemed restaurants and come to be part of the Michelin Stars Story

Source: www.messynessychic.com

This is a great article about the reason that the Michelin brothers, famous for their tyres decided to go into “evaluating restaurants “business, a good Michelin story.

Michelin Guide was first introduced for motorists in 1900 (Michelin story)

We have all heard of the Michelin stars that are a sign of a top class restaurant, but I have always wondered where it all came from and just thought that the Michelin name was perhaps just a coincidence.

I know that they employ inspectors to visit restaurants without the owners knowing who they are. They then asses the restaurant for the highest quality of cuisine and this includes the products used in the meal, the flavours and cooking and whether or not the food is cooked in an individual style. The inspectors also check for value for money and also the number of times the customers visit the restaurant.

There is some concerns in the food industry thought that the Michelin stars mean NOTHING. They are after all judged by humans and so each individual will a certain opinion also depending what mood he may be in. The famous “Faulty Towers “sketch comes to mind, when a hotel inspector visits Basils Hotel, he was in for a shock.  I can imagine this happening to a Michelin inspector on a bad day?

How the Michelin guide was started?

The first Michelin motorist’s guides were not just aimed at restaurants, but were a wealth of information about where to find accommodation and meals for drivers touring France. The Brother responsible for the Michelin Stars Story was Andre Michelin. Who was also part of the Michelin tyre company and so the whole thing is related.

This was in 1900, but by 1920 the information in the guide about dining had become very popular and so to improve the quality of their references, Michelin decided to send out a team of inspectors to check out the restaurants outside of the Paris area where they had concentrated on most of the earlier dining reports. These out of Paris eateries, were give one to three stars according to the quality, an important part of the Michelin Stars Story.

This system was then introduced to Paris and by 1933, 23 restaurants were awarded the top prize of three stars. The system was then rolled out to other European countries, but the system was dropped for a while and then re-introduced in 1951, but very few would achieve the coveted three star rating.

Here in the UK we only have four restaurants that have achieved the three star rating they are; at

The Fat Duck – Bray

Waterside Inn – Bray

Gordon Ramsay – Chelsea

Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester – Mayfair

What do Michelin Star Ratings Mean?

Here is a list of the ratings that can be achieved by the chefs; there are three levels of star ratings which can be awarded by the inspectors of the Michelin Star Restaurants; from 1 star to 3

michelin

The star inn in Yorkshire has a Michelin star

stars.

1-Three stars “Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey”

2-Two stars “Excellent cooking, worth a detour”

3-One star “A very good restaurant in its category”

Unfortunately none of these are in Yorkshire, so I have never had the pleasure of eating in one of these fine establishments? However six restaurants in Yorkshire do have Michelin stars, but not the top honor of  three stars. One day perhaps?

Michelin-CrossClimate Tyre for all Weather Conditions

 

CrossClimate TyreEuropean motorists will be able to purchase a Michelin summer tyre that has been certified for use in winter, the CrossClimate Tyre. Contact Pellon Tyres today for expert advice on this subject.

 

Of course, Michelin have always been on the front line when it comes to new tyre developments.

This new all-weather tyre is no exception. So, just like all other Michelin products over the years. Will, become a success due to Michelin’s vast army of tyre fans. Michelin have always been a premium brand and have always charged a premium price. However, they have resisted lowering their standards and their prices. Using only their quality to keep the number one spot in the world tyre industry.

There is a saying in the tyre world” once a Michelin man always a Michelin Man”.

 

CrossClimate; is it the new generation of winter tyres

In my opinion this new CrossClimate Tyre, from the excellent Michelin tyre company is part of the next generation of tyres that will eliminate the need to change from summer to winter tyres. It just depends on the sizes and availability for all types of car.

The new CrossClimate will give the motorists a similar experience as summer tyres with good wet and dry braking, with a better fuel efficiency. The new tyre will also have the tread and compound to be able to withstand winter driving conditions and so consumers will be able to have a one stop tyre for all year round driving.

The tyre is ideal for countries that experience a mixed climate all year round, hence the name”CrossClimate Tyre”, such as here in the UK and the Mediterranean countries where one day it could be sunny but also icy first thing in the morning, with spells of snowy weather in-between.

I am not sure of the noise levels on some road surfaces

Because this is the downside of having a heavier tread pattern. Primarily, to cope with snow or heavy rain. Many drivers with winter tyres fitted will notice different tones. Especially, in the road noise when driving on say a motorway. Some surfaces are extremely noisy when the car is fitted with winter tyres. Significantly, and you can notice the difference on say concrete and tarmac road surfaces. So I reckon that the CrossClimate will be a little noisier.

We have had what are called “All Season tyres” out now for a few years, that have been used in the same type of driving conditions, but have never replaced the winter tyres which have grown in popularity over the past few years. Other well-known brands with a similar product are Vredestein Apollo with their Quatrac tyres and of course Goodyear with their Vector 4 seasons tyres, all proving popular but not replacing the purpose built winter tyres.

The difference between the Michelin CrossClimate Tyre product and the other similar tyres is that the CrossClimate has been more finally tweaked, by modifying the compounds and tread design, giving the tyres a better braking performance than their counterparts.

Also I think that this is a good way of keeping the profit levels up by constantly bringing out new tyre products that will be more difficult to replicate by other tyre companies and keep ahead of the race to improve safety standards and not just a cheap price.

Tyre Safes New Campaign

Porsche 911 Michelin Pilot Sport Tyres-Great Looking Car-3.8 GT-3 for 4 Tyres

Porsche 911 Michelin Pilot Sport Tyres

Porsche 911 Michelin Pilot Sport Tyres

last Saturday saw another very busy day at Pellon Tyres, here in Halifax UK. Like most tyre centres we had the usual mix of every day type family cars for a variety of tyre and mechanical jobs doing. So, earlier in the month we had a phone call from a customer in Wakefield. Consequently, he had looked at our tyre website to price some Michelin tyres.

His car was a classy Porsche 911 3.8 GT 3 model. The tyres he wanted were 245R35x20 Michelin Pilot Sport tyres special to Porsche. Some times when we get people ringing fro a distance it means that the tyres they are looking at are probably not available. However Debbie Bastow took the guys number and actually found the tyres that he wanted.

Jake re-fitting the centre nut that holds on the wheel.

So, a month went by and the guy finally turned up for the tyre that we had got in for him. Of course the car was a beauty? so we fitted the Michelin’s the guy paid and went back to Wakefield a few pounds the poorer. The only snag we had was that our torque wrench was not strong enough to torque the wheel centre up to 600 newton/meters. However we managed to borrow one from a heavy goods garage and complete the job. A goods day work?

Michelin Pilot Sports For BMW
michelin pilot sports

Official tyre supplier for BMW’s new M3 and M4, marking the latest stage in a long and fruitful relationship

 

The French tyre makers are becoming the dominant force to contend with in the best tyre company in the world, and are constantly coming up with more and more accolades in the motoring world including the announcement that BMW are to use Michelin’s on their new M3 and M4 ranges.

Michelin Pilot Super Sports tyres for the new BMW M3 and M4

I seem to doing lots of writing about the Michelin tyres products of late, but they do seem to be the tyre world’s most active manufacturers of late. The giant French tyre company are attacking all sides of the car industry with their involvement in motorsport on the rise and them the development of their Michelin Pilot Sports series of tyres that are aimed at the very fast and sporty cars, such as these BMW’s.

The BMW logo is that their cars are the “ultimate driving machines” and in their opinion by fitting the Michelin Pilot Super Sports tyres they will indeed be fitting the ultimate tyre for the new BMW range.

This is nothing new as the two giants of the auto industry have worked together for over 30 years

So,starting in the 1980’s when Michelin tyres were fitted to the M5 range, and have developed tyre products to match the handling and performance of the M range of cars right up to the point of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, that will be used on the new M3 and M4 range.

As I have written on many occasions, I was brought up in the tyre trade as a Goodyear man, but over the years I have begun to realise that Michelin tyres were always a bit more Michelin Pilot Sports expensive to buy for a reason and that reason was the quality of their products, I can honestly say that I have only ever seen one suspected faulty tyre in my whole 40 years as a tyre retailer, which is a great endorsement for Michelin tyres.

Michelin are also at the forefront of developing new types of organic chemicals to add to their compounds. This is known as “Bi-Compound “ technology, similar to the “dandelion latex” that Continental tyres are developing, a kind of latex that has the same molecular construction as rubber latex, that has been used to make rubber tyre compounds for over a century.

Special materials for BMW s

These different materials that are used have helped the tyre companies develop tyres will give better control and handling when used on the motorsport circuits or when fitted to the very fast sport saloons and coupes that are produced today and the Michelin Pilot Sport tyres are no exception, offering BMW with all these qualities, whether they are driving on normal roads or on a race circuit, where speed is of the essence.

The new tyres are to be brought out on both 18 inch and 19 inch tyre sizes as BMW original equipment. Here in Halifax Yorkshire UK we do have a customer who no doubt will be buying one of these BMW cars, as he is a BMW fanatic and loves going on race days to prove his driving skills. The guy is also an avid fan of Michelin tyres and so I cannot wait to see what he does and so that I can take some pictures for my articles.

"Michelin Pilot Sports tyresSo, the very latest tyre in the Pilot range is the Pilot Sport EV. Of course, a tyre that I covered in an earlier article. Unsurprisingly, This is the official tyre of the Formula E Championship. Each race in this all-electric series takes place in a capital city around the world. All these cars are battery powered. Unlike their cousins the F1 cars with their gasoline engines.

Latest tyre developments

Michelin have been working  in harmony with automotive manufacturers for many years now. So, to develop products that are tailored to the characteristics of particular cars. Especially high performance cars.  When it came to the tyres development. Experimenting with many new compounds and tread patterns. Importantly, the Michelin Pilot Sports tyres. Were, going to be the one used on the brand new BMW M 3 and M 4 models. This process involved making and testing thousands of prototypes. Which were gradually refined to finally achieve the optimum performance. Of course, on both the race track tests and the normal roads.

Michelin, of course continue to develop and manufacture great tyre products. This includes the development of the summer tyre. Hence, that can be used in winter as an all-weather tyres. Named as the CrossClimate + tyres.

Safety in every weather condition for added peace of mind
  • In summer, brakes on dry roads like a summer tyre.
  • Provides excellent grip on wet roads in every weather condition, in summer and winter.
  • In winter, is approved for use in snow.
Mileage at a high level to benefit from safety & mobility until the last kilometer
  • Lasts even longer than Michelin Energy Saver+, best-in-class in its Summer Category.

Runflat Tyres Safer

Michelin Zero Pressure Tyres-Run-Flat tyres will get you out of Trouble in an Emergency

Michelin Zero Pressure Tyres

For high standard of equipment and In all fairness Michelin are not the only company to make a run-flat product. Most tyre companies including some budget tyre brands make a run-flat tyre.

Michelin’s call their tyre the ZP or Michelin Zero Pressure.

This of course refers to the fact that when the run-flat tyre deflates, it will carry on running with zero air in the tyre. This is exactly what the run-flat does. Because of the much stronger

Michelin Zero Pressure

Michelin run-flat tyres

side walls the tyre will not deviate from its course. The driver is warned about the deflation from inside the car by the TPMS system (tyre pressure monitoring system).

Let’s face it our roads are probably the busiest in Europe and nobody enjoys having to change a wheel at the side of the road, in fact they now warn us to stay well away from the car, at the top of the embankment, while the recovery truck turns up, because of the many accidents caused by broken down vehicles being hit from behind by other vehicles who lose concentration and smash into them.

With the Michelin Zero Pressure run-flat technology fitted to your car this will be avoided. These tyres will lose pressure from a nail or a screw penetration but your car will keep a straight line and you will be able to drive home, albeit at the reduced speed of 50 mph, but the tyre will let you travel 50 mile which should be enough to get you out of trouble and have the tyre changed

Michelin Zero Pressure Tyres-Can you mix run-flat tyres with normal radial tyres?

Michelin recommend that you should never mix a Michelin Zero Pressure run-flat with a non-run-flat normal radial tyres. The only exception to this rule is if you were stranded in the middle of nowhere and the only tyre depot for miles around could only get you a normal tyre then this would be acceptable as a last resort, get you home step and the tyre must be changed back to a run-flat as soon as possible.

The Michelin Zero Pressure run-flats have completely different sidewalls; they are made of much thicker materials and are known as “Self-supporting tyres” or SST’s. They have two other identification markings on the sidewalls.
1: ZP allows you to drive at 50 mph for speeds up 50 mph (most of the M1 motorway at the moment)
2: ZP SR allows you to drive for 20 miles at 50 mph

Michelin Zero Pressure offer the same ride capabilities as a normal radial tyre

The first time I drove a BMW Mini that was equipped with run-flat tyres I thought I was in an old truck going down a cobble road. The ride was horrendous, and my staff, who regularly test drive cars say that this is a common thing, the ride is very hard, because the sidewalls are so thick and re-enforced. Michelin claim that their Zero pressure tyres are not the same and give just as good a ride as their normal radial tyre range.

Although I have not tried out as car fitted with Michelin Zero Pressure, this has got to be a step in the right direction and I will try out these tyres as soon as possible to quantify their claims.
However some fleet companies are now looking at the Michelin Zero Pressure, because of the more comfortable ride and also improved fuel consumption. These tyres have been tested by fleet company Alphabet’s Operational Services Manager, Andy Williams,
He explained: “The comfort compromise everyone used to associate with run-flats has disappeared with the latest technology of tyres.

I have tried Michelin’s new Zero Pressure (ZP) range

Trust me, you can’t tell the difference from standard tyres. Yes, there have been critics of run-flat tyres in the past, but Michelin has answered all of them. It is high time fleet managers start to embrace the new technology as it has so much to offer.

The combination of a smooth ride and the increased safety is something they just can’t afford to ignore. The fact Michelin Zero Pressurethat a tyre keeps its shape when it loses pressure could be life-saving in the event of a tyre blow-out.”
As I have stated earlier this means that the fleet car user can now safely drive the vehicle to a tyre centre or garage and have the tyre replaced.

This will help to reduce down time caused in the past by the driver calling out the emergency services because they are not able to change the wheel themselves, or the car is stranded in a dangerous place.

For the private drivers who are fitted out with run-flat tyres it would be well worth trying out these new Michelin Zero Pressure, because of the better and less harsh ride, that is associated with the other run-flat makes of tyres.

CAR TYRES-technical developments to create a Greener tyre.

Like any other product that is man made car tyres develop and change over the years.

 

The tyres that were made say thirty years ago would not be suitable for today’s cars. The tyre has developed into part of the evolution of greener cars, especially in recent times when

vehicle emissions have become a very important part of new car development.

Tyre companies are trying all sorts of new techniques to develop car tyres that will give a better “rolling resistance”. Better rolling resistance makes it for a car to move forward easier, whilst at the same time enabling the car to give a smooth ride and stick to the road when cornering and in bad weather conditions.

Tyre companies are using new and much lighter materials, including new materials that go into the compounds that make the materials that are used for the outer layers of the car tyres, for making the sidewalls and tread area. One of the main products used is still latex of course but tyres companies are now trying other materials to try lesson the use of petrol-chemicals derived from oil.

One of these leading the charge is Yokohama tyres. Yokohama is experimenting with many materials and one of the more successful ones has been “orange peel oil”.  Another tyre company that are trying new materials is Goodyear tyres. Goodyear has teamed up with a biotechnology company called DuPont. The two companies are working together to produce molecules to try to match the molecules that are found in tyre compounds. Rubber is a molecule and by replicating similar molecules from sugar molecules they will be able to manufacture a product that could be used to make tyre with and replace the dependency of latex, the natural material that tyres are made of at the moment. For more reading… http://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/education/resources/highschool/chemmatters/news/making-tires-green.html

Continental tyres are also one of the Worlds car tyres development innovators. Over the years they have formed what they call their “green kitchen” to enable them to develop more CAR TYRES,michelin tyresenvironmentally friendly compounds, by replacing the more dangerous chemicals used in tyre making with new more eco-friendly products, similar to what Goodyear and other tyre companies are experimenting with. More information…http://www.continental-corporation.com/www/csr_com_en/themes/news/reifenmischung_en.html 

Michelin Tyres UK are going down the same road. Michelin have always been at the front of car tyres development, ever since the invention of the “steel belted radial” and are now looking at all possible ways of future tyre development, including the use of old tyres…

“Terry Getty’s, Michelin’s research and development director stated that the tyre giant’s innovation strategy continues to focus on exploiting raw materials to the maximum. He further said that TREC is a perfect illustration of eco-design and will help them creating latest high-performance tyres using high-quality raw materials derived from old car tyres”.

 This includes Michelin’s latest tyre, which will not lose any grip all the way down to the tyre tread wear bars, due to the different compound depths within the tyres.

Now more important to switch your Michelin tyres round

Tyre rotation has become just as important as ever, because of the new developments and the need gain every bit of wear that you can out of your tyres. In my opinion there is also a need to match the tyres that are fitted to the car, especially if your car has the latest tyre specs that have been developed between the car and the tyre manufacturers.

We are pleasantly surprised though, how many of our customers do indeed practice this now. They are up to date with the fact that car tyres from different tyre manufacturers are now CAR TYRES,michelin tyres advertdifferent and that they should be matched up for a better performance, that will give the car the same handling qualities when braking and cornering, in any type of weather conditions.
