All Pirelli Tyres Stuff

All Pirelli Tyres Stuff

Pirelli design leads to the creation of the Pirelli Cinturato. Naturally, this tyre was created in the 1950s. Therefore, and was originally made from a textile belted construction. So, this tyre gave great comfort and road holding qualities.But as for all textile construction tyres was a little low on mileage. Of course, and could not compete with some of its rivals. Namely Michelin who were streets ahead with their steel belted X range of tyres.

Sometimes, you can read a headline, and think wow, surely that can’t be true.Consequently, this headline hit me straight in the face. Specifically, 3500 tyres is a lot of tyres. Of course, it would enough stock to start two or three medium size tyre depots. These tyres as I understand are just allocated for the F1 car testing. Therefore, not even for the actual racing.

Pirelli, along with the other major tyre companies. Regard this huge amount of investment as a necessary cost.In other words to sell tyres, to us the general public. Indeed, Pirelli would also take hundreds of tyre technical staff. Hence, to evaluate the different effects of their tyre compounds.Because, I do believe that the number of compounds could be moved from three to five.

Of course, it is true that over the past years that Pirelli have sponsored F1 tyres.Then other products have evolved. Without doubt, thes must include the Pirelli P Zero range of tyres. Including, the “supercar tyres”.

 

Pirelli will take more than 3500 tyres to Barcelona for the first eight days of testing with the latest-generation F1 cars. – Pitpass.com

Pirelli Winter Tyres- Pirelli recommend that UK motorists to fit “WINTER TYRES”

SUV owners are especially vulnerable to snow and do need Pirelli Winter Tyres

Of course, I am convinced that the tyre trade are not targeting the young drivers. Especially when it comes to teaching about tyre safety. As the owner of Pellon Tyre in Halifax UK. I am finding it more common for young drivers, to be making tyre related mistakes. Naturally, that only slight observations would correct.
Including running on tyres that are completely bald and well over the legal limit. Many young drivers including married and single people. Consequently, do not appear to or just do not want know anything about the car. Especially the tyres?

This brings me back to winter tyres.

Any driver who fits winter tyres on a regular basis, knows how much safer it is to drive about in winter weather. Even in heavy rain, the driver will feel much safer, with a good set of winter tyre fitted to their car. You can handle anything that an British winter can throw at you.
Some of these young drivers are driving about without any tread on their summer tyre, never mind winter tyres. These drivers are also the ones that take the risks on bends and speeding on our roads. This combined with bald tyres is a recipe for a disaster. Unfortunately this is what happens. How often do we see a car on its roof in a ditch? too often, many would say.

So lets target the young drivers with more education about tyre safety and the use of winter tyres.

Pirelli Winter Tyres

SUVs like this Mercedes ML are much safer driven on Pirelli Winter Tyres

Here at Pellon tyres. We have noticed that the vehicles that are most affected by bad weather. Hence, in winter are the SUV vehicles. As a result, these cars have been fitted with very large and wide tyres. Thus, by the car manufacturers. Because these cars are at the luxury end of the car market. Requiring them to be a quiet and comfortable ride.

This is why they are fitted with summer tyres. In my opinion the job of giving these cars a much safer ride. Especially in winter. Therefore, has been solely laid upon the car owners. SUV cars perform very badly in winter conditions.As a result, should either be parked up in winter time. Hence, or fitted with a set of winter tyres. Because of the very large tyre sizes, these tyres are usually only made by premium tyre manufacturers, such as Pirelli Winter Tyres. They produce an excellent winter tyre for the SUVs called the “Scorpion Winter SUV tyres”, the new saloon winter tyre from Pirelli tyres is called the “Snowcontrol 3”.. Pellon tyres UK

Pirelli tyres are not known for their winter tyre products here in the UK, but it is a growing market all across Europe and it is a market that they would like to be part of. This Snow patrol 3 tyre will definitely help them achieve this in the winters to come in my opinion.

Pirelli Snowcontrol 3

Pirelli tyres have brought out this new winter tyre the Pirelli Snowcontrol 3 to try boost its standing in the winter tyre market. The giant tyre company has good standing in the home market in Italy, but slips behind in the UK and the rest of Europe.

Pirelli tyres  have brought out a next generation of winter tyres. Thus, the Pirelli Snowcontrol 3. So to follow in the footsteps of the of the snow control 2.

This new tyre. Therefore, has the advantage of having a greener credential than its predecessor. Most of the leading tyre makers. Consequently, are now going down this line. Most tyres are made of large amounts of oil based materials. For this reason, the shift is now to use materials that are not petroleum based. As expected, use other types of oils. That are much more environmentally friendly.

This Pirelli Snowcontrol 3  winter tyres. Naturally, from Pirelli are classed as Eco-compatible. Therefore, will have a minimal impact on the environment. Thus, without effecting the  performance.

These Pirelli Snowcontrol 3 tyres. Have a special directional tread pattern. Hence, with wide central grooves that to optimise pitch sequence. Of course, that enables them  to be much quieter and reduce much of the road noise that were once synonymous with winter tyres that were once a stumbling block for many motorists. In fact this tyre already complies with the new 2012 EU directive on the lowering of road noise it I also perfect for use in mild and extreme weather conditions, anything that the European winter can throw at us.

Pirelli Truck Tyres for Bedfords of Batley

The Bedfords trucking empire was started in 1927 by Mr Nelson Bedford. As a result, who started his business off the back of the heavy woolen districts booming textile and clothing industry. Of course, in the early days ! Nelson wanted to be a single operator. But his son Ronald joined forces with his father in 1952. Consequently, by the end of the 1950s the business had grown four fold. Nelson sadly passed away during retirement in 1957.

Ronald was now the top man and by 1968 the fleet grew to over 20 lorries. Ronald did not want his sons to join the business ! Surprisingly, David joined the trucking company in 1972. Specifically, the company were now trucking for the printing industry . Because of this the fleet had now reached 40 vehicles.

In 1991 Davids brother Robert also joined the company and Bedfords continued to expand until the sad deaths of the brothers in 2007 and 2008.

The company is now run by a trust together with directors and managers and has now reached significant growth due to excellent customer service and diversification.

One of the main concern regarding the trucking business was to try a reduce the number of tyre related breakdowns, the fleet these days is over 85 trucks and more than 135 trailers.

The contract with Pirelli Truck Tyres ensured that the tyres were correctly fitted to the right applications and correctly twinned with tyre pressure monitoring systems in place, so that problems such as low pressure can easily be spotted and rectified. The results were excellent and after a nine month period Pirelli Truck Tyres had reduced the companies tyre breakdown rate thus reducing the tyre related costs.

Pirelli Tyre Engineering-how to design a tyre tread a Pirelli article

Pirelli Tyre Engineering

This is another Pirelli article. Hence, about the engineering techniques involved in designing their tyres. As a result, of their expertise and involvement in the motorsport scene. Strangely enough, we do not have much of a call for Pirelli tyres here in Halifax UK. Of course, many of the Pirelli tyre these days are fitted to what I call the “upper class” supercars. Naturally, from Porsches to Aston Martins.

Our customer base, although strong drive about in lesser cars. Of course, we do get some of the more expensive cars, but not that many?

Because of their involvement in the F1 race scene. Then Pirelli have developed tyres for the new development of supercars, that are on the luxury car market. Therefore, we do not get much input and sales for the new input of Pirelli P Zero tyres. This article is interesting and worth a read.

A milestone in the development of the Pirelli range, Pirelli P ZERO™ has been chosen as original equipment for the most performance orientated and powerful models on the market. Its asymmetric tread pattern improves braking performance and enhances handling and control. Excellent in wet conditions with improved safety in potential aquaplaning situations.

Pirelli Know-How

This is another great article from Pirelli tyre. Hence, about the sometimes complicated decision. Thus for the motorist, when buying different types of tyres. In my opinion Michelin complicated matters. Claiming that their CrossClimate tyres were”summer tyres” that could also handle some winter weather. Previous to this we only had winter tyres summer tyres and all-weather tyres. All-weather tyres were winter tyre, that could be also used in summer.

Both the all-weather and CrossClimate tyres are aimed at countries that do not have extremes of weather. Hence these include countries in southern europe, such as Spain and Portugal. Although this winter has been very extreme in these areas, with snow falling in the Costa blanca. Here in Halifax UK, we have had a cold but only a few snowy periods. However, drivers in the area of my tyre depot, tend to go for the proper winter tyres and not the “inbetweenies”. Of course, we do have many hills with high elevations. Making it important to have the correct tyres fitted. So not to get caught out and stuck in the snow.

The supercar tyres are the end product of many hours of tyre testing from the major tyre companies. Hence, Pirelli are a fine example of this. naturally, Pirelli are well involved in the motorsport field. Thus, they are the sole suppliers of tyres to the F1 scene and have been for the past four years. Michelin tyres are also deeply involved in motorsport. Of course, both these tyre companies are involved in many motorsport events. Including, the French Le Mans 24 hour racing scene.

Therefore, it is not rocket science to see why these tyre companies are top of their game. Pirelli are developing tyres with much experience in different compounds and tread designs. Especially, for this new class of supercars. As expected, these cars can reach high speeds in race track situations and also run on regular roads.

The end result for this is the Pirelli P Zero tyres .

Eric Roberts

What Pirelli say-

A reference point for the Ultra High Performance segment, it is characterised by an asymmetric tread pattern. Ideal for all top of the range sports and high-powered cars, it can also be considered for powerful mid-range vehicles.

A milestone in the development of the Pirelli range, Pirelli P ZERO™ has been chosen as original equipment for the most performance orientated and powerful models on the market. Its asymmetric tread pattern improves braking performance and enhances handling and control. Excellent in wet conditions with improved safety in potential aquaplaning situations.

Its new nano-composite compound ensures maximum grip and stability. The structural integrity of the tyre improves steering response, which is essential in sports driving, and also ensures uniform tread wear.

The special “S-shaped” grooves in the tread area deliver lower cabin noise levels, enhancing driver comfort.

The reason that I decided to put the image of this Pirelli P Zero tyre. Hence, is because in my opinion there is a link between the Fi racing tyre article and the development of tyres for regular passenger vehicles. Pirelli have spent billions of dollars. For the reason, of supplying F1 with their race tyres.

The information that Pirelli can get from taking part in motorsport, is invaluable. Especially, when you discover the number of compound changes that have been made. Thus, over the past few years. These compounds are all recorded and checked out in real life situations.

When a new type of tyre is required. As expected, in recent times. For the new breed of supercars, then Pirelli will and have come up with the new compound and tread design for this speedy class of car.

Pirelli Tyres Cables- The giant Italian tyre company also make Electric Cables

 One of the founders and the best Pirelli Tyres Cables

Pirelli Tyres are one of the founders of the manufacture of both tyres and for underground electrical cables the famous Pirelli Tyres Cables company, were founded in Millano in Italy in 1872

Pirelli Tyres Cables

by Giovanni  Battista  Pirelli.

Pirelli as a company have been manufacturing  for over well over 100 years. Pellon Tyres in Halifax has not been around for that long, but in all there experience in the tyre trade Pirelli tyres have always given car owners a good service and a good mileage, and are a top brand name that commands much respect and much loyalty amongst the Pirelli Tyres Cables . This is indeed valuable praise from such an established tyre dealers who to this day stills sells Pirelli  at their Halifax based tyre depot.

Pirelli radial tyres were generated from the need of Lancia rally, who wanted to make a stronger lower riding radial tyre for their Lancia Stratos rally car, this need lead the   designers to develop a much stronger tyre construction, both with a wider tread area and with a much lower side walls. This design became very successful and became a boost to the lancia racing team, indeed Porsche began to copy Lancia and also started to use this Pirelli tyres for its racing division.

This new tyre design lead to the creation and introduction of the Pirelli Cinturato.

This tyre was developed in the 1950s and was originally made from a textile belted construction. This tyre gave great comfort and road holding qualities but as for all textile construction tyres was a little low on mileage and could not compete with some of its main rival, Michelin tyres, who were streets ahead with their steel belted X range of tyres.
