Car Tyres Online-your car tyres are life savers?

Many motorists. Do not understand the importance of buying the rightCar Tyres Online. Therefore, they and do not link road safety and accidents. Hence, caused by the fitting of the wrong Car Tyres Online. Thus, many motorists are risking their lives. As a result, of leaving their tyres on the cars for too long. Consequently, after the legal limit has been reached. Indeed, many cars that have had an MOT. Naturally, have been failed with car tyres down to the steel belt.

Of course, this is not acceptable. Because it will be an innocent motorist in another car that will be injured. Therefore, by such disregard for their vehicles and car tyres. It is a good job that we are going to keep the one year DVLA MOT Rules now, to think the Government wanted to make the test every two years (hard to believe when you see the bald tyres that we take off)

So what do we do to improve? In my opinion, we should check (or have checked) our car tyres every week. You should check them for lumps and bumps on the side walls, and check the pressures; this is crucial. If you are elderly or cant manage this task. Therefore, you should go to your local garage or Auto-centre. Of course, to ask the staff to check the car tyres for you, we at Pellon tyres are only too willing the people in Halifax, and check their tyres, you have no excuse if you neglect your tyres going down the motorway at 90 miles an hour anything could happen?.

Part Worn Tyres Expensive – “You DO NOT SAVE YOU MONEY in the long run”

Post Updated 19th Dec 2013

Part Worn Tyres Expensive-Proof that part worn tyres work out more expensive in the long run

Most tyre experts and motoring organisations are very concerned about the amount of part worn tyres are now fitted here in the UK. The latest motoring organisation to voice their opinion is the very respectful Motorcodes, of which we at Pellon tyres are members (and proud to be so).

 

These Part Worn Tyres Expensive are generally imported from countries such as Germany, where tyres are generally removed at 3 mil. These Part Worn Tyres Expensive look fine from the outside but there is no saying what Part Worn Tyres Expensivedamage lies under the surface of the tread and could be very dangerous indeed. We are effectively buying old tyres from Germany, the tyres that the Germans throw away as no good any more, I cant believe that we would do such a thing. Part Worn Tyres Expensive also offer a danger to other motorists on the road, they put other drivers at risk because people think they are saving money.

In 1994 part worn tyres came under a law called the “Motor Vehicle Tyres Safety Regulations”, these regulations were to ensure that part worn tyres were properly tested and labelled as such, if people buy tyres that have been tested then this is deemed as ok and suitable for the use on roads, but the Part Worn Tyres Expensive we have come across do not appear to have any checks on them and no label. All part worn tyres must be labelled as such. They must have the words ‘PART- WORN’ marked in capital letters. This must be permanent and legible. (I think this is to give other road users the chance to get out of the way

Many more part worn tyres are now sold because of the economic recession. A recent excellent survey regarding how cheap a part worn tyre really is has been studied and written by a tyre industry expert Stuart Carr. I have posted a link to Stuarts blog and I hope you will click to see that

 part worn tyres cost “MORE” than new tyres in the long run in real terms

To finalise any garage that are in Motorcodes will not endorse the sale of part worn tyres.

Firestone Multihawk tyres that offer great comfort to the modern driver?

Firestone Multihawk tyres

Firestone Multihawk tyres-Firestone tyres started in 1900 and chosen by Henry Ford

 Firestone tyres were one of the Worlds earliest mass produced tyres. Therefore, they first used the Ford model “T” mass produced cars still popular today. Since them, Firestone tyres have gone from strength to strength. Now producing some of the best tyres on the planet.

Here at Pellon tyres in Halifax. Therefore, we offer an excellent range of the Firestone tyres. For this reason, we source our stock from Britain’s leading wholesaler. Thus, and offer it online across the country.

New tyres are flooding into the UK from China and the far East. For this reason, Firestone tyres are holding out the opposition. Because of their quality and staying power. Due to the many years of manufacturing experience. Of course, in tyre manufacturing throughout the World.

I have worked on Firestone tyres for many years

and have even worked on fitting the Giant tyres that you see on Earthmoving machines, they have always been a good product. The great Firestone also makes tyres for racing cars, and that is where the development comes from to make the Firestone  that we are now driving about on in our cars.

Firestone, as most people know, are now owned by Bridgestone tyres of Japan but because of the reputation that goes before them, Firestone has kept the original name.

 Firestone tyres are available online from www.pellonautocentre.com

Tractor Tyres-fall off a truck-Causing fatal injury to a Lady Driver.

Tractor Tyres

Tractor Tyres

Police in Ontario, Canada are looking for the driver of a truck that lost its load of a “tractor tyres”.

 The Tractor Tyres came off the truck and bounced straight into the front of a car driven by a lady

consequently,the driver was called Miroslawa Chmielewski, she was the only person in the car and died at the scene. Firs,t of all, the accident took place in Burlington on the Queen Elizabeth way where the 54-year-old female lost her life. This incident reminds me of a former time when I was an earthmover tyre fitter. We regularly went to Quarries in North Yorkshire to fit the huge tyres that fit Monster Trucks and dumper trucks.The route we took was up the A1 trunk road; we would load the tyres to be fitted onto our trucks and then set off to fit them (about a 2-hour drive) the tyres were massive, so the trucks were up to the maximum weight limit.

One very beautiful sunny day I set off up the A1 about six in the morning, I got about halfway there when I noticed that my truck was starting to go a bit faster, not thinking why, I carried on the journey, only to be pulled up by a police car with flashing lights.He shouted at me in a very grumpy voice that “I had lost half my load of tyres,” when I returned to where they were, I realized how lucky is was that there were no causalities, in fact, the tyres had bounced straight into the field . 

I recovered the tyres and carried on my journey.

 What happened in the accident in Canada, was that the driver went missing, but he would have continued the journey, not realizing that he had lost the tyre off the back of the truck, so far he has not been detected.

Dunlop Tyres-A Brief History of one of the companies that i worked for.

Dunlop Tyres

Dunlop Tyres

Bicycles the first for Dunlop

In the days of Queen Victoria Britain was going full steam ahead in the industrialized nation that we had become. Inventions were arising thick and fast.

In the year of 1889 patent from John B Dunlop. His company was founded in Dublin and called the Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Co Ltd.This company manufactures his very own patent the Pneumatic tyre, in those days just for the bicycle.Dunlop Tyres

The bike was getting very popular in those days, and people were starting to form clubs for racing. A famous racer in those days was called Willie Hume who won seven races on the new Dunlops. Word soon spread, and full production started in 1890 in Belfast Northern Ireland. Dunlop were able to open up similar businesses in Europe and North America and opened a factory in Australia.They then began having financial difficulties and indeed had to sell off the overseas operations. Furthermore, to this day The company had to split and in Australia they have been a separate company, both making different brands using the same name.

Dunlop UK then opened a large factory in Birmingham the UK, and in a short time they started the production of car tyres, and the Birmingham plant became known as “Fort Dunlop” a very famous part of the Birmingham Brummy landscape. I visited the fort many times in the past and was always made to feel very welcome. consequently, they became a very rich company and had Worldwide operations in distribution, manufacturing including owning their rubber plantations in Ceylon and Malaya.

In the 1930s Dunlop  went into making other products

In the 1930s Dunlop Began diversifying into other rubber products, these were latex, golf balls, and other sporting equipment. They also started making rubber boots and “O” rings. In 1950 they then started making and supplying tyres for Formula 1 cars.

In 1971 Dunlop merged with Italian tyre giants Pirelli to form the biggest companies in the world. By 1984 they once again started with financial difficulties and the company was sold to Sumitomo Rubber Industries of Japan. The tyre brand name was split up over three groups and also all the other products that Dunlop made such as sports goods were sold off to various other companies. That just about brings us up to date,  Dunlop and Goodyear now trade under the same brand names with the same parent company and made in different factories around the World.

The original holding company were facing financial difficulties.The bank called in the companies overdraft.Thus, calling for an immediate seizure of the companies assets.

560×13 X-ply tyres-Vintage cross ply tyres fitted to these great looking MG cars

Old cars fitted with 560×13 x-ply tyres (takes me back)

560×13 X-ply tyres; On a recent trip to France, I came across some fantastic vintage cars and thought that they would be perfect for one of my blogs.

560x13 X-ply tyres

MG fitted with 560×13 X-ply tyres

The cars were fitted with 560×13 X-ply tyres and reminded me of the time when I was an apprentice mechanic. My first employment as a young mechanic was in a small industrial town in West Yorkshire called Batley. Batley in those days was a very busy mill town and was the home to some famous companies. The best-known company still trades in Batley and is called Fox,s biscuits.

The garage that I worked for was called Phillips Brothers, a small British Leyland garage that repaired most British cars such as MG, and other Leyland marques. As the new lad, I had to fix punctures and fit new tyres; this included the very popular 560×13 X-ply tyres. The tyre service in those days was pretty necessary. Indeed we had to use tyre levers as tyre machines were not available then.

The most standard tyres in those days were 560×13 X-ply tyres

and most were fitted to early M Gs and early Minis . Minis were on 520×10 tyres and then moved onto radial tyres. Foxs biscuits family lived nearby and were one of our best clients, they always bought the latest models out, but would often keep special cars, such as the MG s spotted on my travels which were MG TA and TB. These cars have now become classic vintage sports cars. They were first released in 1936, with a top speed of 78mph and 0-60 in 23 seconds, they could do 28 mile to the gallon and only 3000 were made. In 1939 the TB came out with a new 1250cc engine giving 54 brake horse power, but this model was affected by the breakout of war, leaving only 379 models made. Eric Roberts
