Winter tyres all year round

 

This has always been my point of view. Here in the UK we have had a run of mild and wet winters. Summer tyres fitted to our cars did the job of coping with this.

Then we started to have colder weather from November onwards. Motorists in Scotland were the first to react positively. Thus, to this colder winter climate. Starting to fit winter tyres to their cars. Much the same as the other European countries. Most of Britain’s winter tyres were diverted to Scotland by the big wholesalers.

As the weather became worse as the years rolled on. Of course, then winter tyres became more popular in Northern England. We now have started tyre companies using winter tyre “hotels”. Including here at Pellon Tyres in the UK. Consequently, we will store and refit your winters each season, now very much the same as the rest of Europe.

This guy from Continental Tyres UK Ltd has said the opposite to me, by stating that in his opinion that Continental Winter Tyres should not be used all of the year, this is a complete turnaround by Continental, but I have the opposite view and think that they would be much for the motorist in all types of weather.

Continental Winter Tyres To update my thoughts,

As I have said on many occasions British drivers are coming to terms with the fact that fitting Continental Winter Tyres in November early December to increase safety for themselves and the other road users, in the bad winter weather.

It is also advisable to re-fit your summer tyres after the Continental Winter Tyres has finished around Easter time, or at least after March. This is because there are two differences between summer tyre and winter tyres that are easy to explain. The one that is most obvious is that the tread pattern of the winter tyre, is made up of millions of sipes, these are tiny slits in the tyres tread, that get rid of the water, snow and slush that you will encounter at some stage of the winter period.

The summer tyre tread pattern is of a simpler design and performs differently to the winter tyre, as drivers who get stuck in the snow know to their cost.

The tyre compound is the second main difference. The Continental Winter Tyres compound has additional chemicals in the mix, including “silica”; this keeps the tyre flexible in freezing weather. The summer tyre does not have this additive in the compound and so when the temperature drops below 7 degrees C then the tyre carcass becomes rigid and  they do not handle well on a nice hot sunny day.

And so to finalise, Continental are correct in saying that it is best practice to change back to summer tyres are to rotate summer and winters at the end of the relevant seasons.

Continental Tyre Advice- That Warn You Of Vehicle Overloading your car tyres.

Continental Tyre AdviceContinental Tyre Advice-Continental tyres make new gadgats

Continental Car Tyres has been stepping up its line of products as it already delivers tyres which are equipped with a sensor that tells the user just how much…

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

New Continental Tyre Advice just one of things to come?

Now that we will all be using TPMS systems in the future it comes as no surprise that other gadgets will be developed to aid the motorist in the constant drive for more road safety on our cars.

This new device from Continental Tyre Advice will be no exception, and will tell the driver if the car is overloaded or not. Overloading is one of the main dangers associated with the cars handling and can be very dangerous when cornering with an overloaded car.

No doubt there will be many more gadgets coming through in the years to come to aid drivers probably on German cars such as the BMW’s and Mercs, who work in conjunction with the German tyre giant Continental Tyre Advice professionals . These devices will also become more common on vehicles such as caravans and motor-homes, as they will warn the driver of any loss of air pressure, thus resulting in a safer journey.

305-30R23 Continental Tyres-Size 305 30R23 fitted to Mercedes ML Brabus Car.

305-30R23 Continental Tyres;SUV tyres are getting bigger and bigger?

Every week we are discovering new types of tyres and with it new tyre sizes. Here at Pellon Tyres in the small industrial town of Halifax we do not often see many exotic or unusual cars. 305-30R23 Continental TyresMost of the cars and tyre sizes that we see are pretty standard stuff. Our top selling size is pretty much the standard size for the whole country, which is 202/55×16.

However we do get the odd surprise and this Saturday was no exception. We were privileged to be able to sell and fit some tyres on a Mercedes ML “BRABUS, now these cars are probably very common in the big cities, but this is the first one I have ever seen in my life.

Merc on huge 305-30R23 Continental Tyres

Another first for me was that the cars tyre size was 305-30R23 Continental Tyres, and as you can see in my pictures they are huge tyres. This was another first for me as I have never seen this size of tyre before and did not even know that the tyre size existed, (very exciting to a tyre geek like myself). 305-30R23 Continental Tyres are one of our favourites here at Pellon tyres, and i can truthfully say that i have never seen a faulty Continental tyres  in my 35 years in the tyre trade.

Continental Tire Company now supply a massive part of the O.E. and after market with new tyres and their tyre range is second to none.

Continental tyres develop the sizes along side car makers.

These days the tyre manufacturers such as Continental Car Tyres can develop new tyre sizes and tyre types of tyre very quickly, with the use of computer technology and data from the close relationships they have with the car manufacturers, hence the development of such tyres on the Mercedes ML “BRABUS”,Continental tyres are of course one of Germany’s leading tyre companies and has on going relationships with all the leading German car companies, such as BMW and Mercedes.

Continental Tyres Winners- A Popular Choice for many motorists

 

Post Updated 27th Dec 2013

Continental Tyres Winners;Many motorists decide that they would like to fit Continental tyres on to their vehicles.

Continental Tyres Winners

Many motorists decide that they would like to fit Continental on to their vehicles. These tyres are a popular choice for those people who live in the wetter areas of the UK. This is because this is just one of the many good points that we bestow on the brand of tyre made by Continental  fitted to their vehicles as it has been proven to perform well in these weather conditions.

A large number of accidents that have resulted in personal injury that happens when roads the are very wet . You’ll also find that road accidents are twice as likely to happen on the wet road too (another factor not to forget is that most of these vehicles will be running on bald ones). Because of these accidents people tend to go for tyres that will keep them as safe as possible during the bad weather and help them to minimise the risk of being involved in an accident. It’s so important to make sure that you’re taking extra care when driving in bad conditions (Continental Tyres Winners) and you will find that many people on the roads are driving without the correct tyres fitted to their vehicle.

Most people tend to think that the reason why driving in wet conditions causes accidents is because of the spray and through loss of visibility, but the main danger is the risk of aquaplaning (Continental tyres are a great wet weather tyre). The cause for aquaplaning is a lair of water that forms between the tyre and the road and is then and this reduces your tyre’s grip and means that contact is lost with the road, the car could then go out of control causing an accident.

The way that Continental Tyres Winners have been designed makes sure that they  perform to their best ability when the weather outside is very wet. The way that the tyre works is to disperse as much water away from the road as possible by using centre drainage channels and having many water dispersing “sipes” therefore they will successful increase the grip on the wet road. You’ll find that aquaplaning with this brand  is at its minimal and dramatically decreased.

It still worth remembering though that your Continental Tyres Winners must be in good condition with a good tread area, a bald tyre whatever the make will be dangerous on all road conditions.

Do not forget that the UK is traditionally a very wet country and also treats road safety as very important and although Continentals  are an excellent brand any new tyre will be a thousand times better in all driving conditions than a “bald” tyre. It is most important at all times of the year to have your tyres checked at regular intervals and always invest in a good make of tyres such as Continental tyres.

The press from all the leading motoring journals met In  Barcelona for the launch of the New premium Contact 5 tyres.This new tyre is designed for all types of cars from small

Continental have and will always be one the Worlds front tyre companies, in tyre development the new Contisport 5 is no exception to this rule.

family saloons to the luxury end of the market.

Continental tyres are constantly improving their products, along with the other leading tyre manufacturers. This is to keep in step with the ever changing designs created by modern car makers, especially in Germany and Japan. The new premium Contact 5 is a few steps further on in development from the sports Contact 5. The new premium Contact 5 boasts much better braking distances in both wet and dry road conditions and has the same rolling resistance as the eco contact 5,making these tyres a whole lot better than there predecessors’.

The new tyres come with a few added benefits to add to better contact with the road during braking. They have what they call a 3D edge. The new design also includes a new type of shoulder zone, which reduces energy loss along the shoulder zone. All these extra features give the new tyres a lower fuel consumption, helping the motorist to reduce their fuel costs, it is expected that this could be as much as 12%, a good saving.

Continental tyres have also designed a more flexible side-wall to give increased comfort for the car drivers and with the addition of whisper bars the tyre is much quieter compared with the other tyres in Continentals extensive range.

Once again I must praise Continental for another wonderful tyre product, another step thanks keeps them in number one spot as the Worlds finest tyre maker. Please click the link a learn more on Continental tyres web site...www.continental-tyres.co.uk/passenger

Continental Van Eco Tyres-“New” Continental Tyres for Vans and Similar Vehicles

Post Updated 19th Dec 2013

Continental Van Eco Tyres;New Vanco Eco from Continental tyres improves fuel economy

Like most other tyre manufacturers Continental tyres are striving to improve their range to include much more economic and fuel saving tyres for the future. Continental Van Eco TyresIndeed Continental have just completed tests together with ford using the Continental Van Eco Tyres and achieved a much greater fuel efficiency by using this tyre , a great result for Continental tyres.

The new van tyre will have much less rolling resistance than previous van tyres , making this tyre about 4% more economical which means much less emissions. Continental tyres engineers have also designed the new tyre give car like handling by means of more comfort together with better handling on both wet and dry roads.

 Continental tyres first Vanco Eco tyre size

 The first Continental Van Eco Tyres to be made will be in the tyre size 215/75R16 com load rating 113/111 t/l. This size fits most of the popular vans around at the moment including Ford Transits,Mercedes Sprinters and VW T5 range.

Although 4% doesn’t seem a large amount of savings, you must multiply this by the total mileage that the van will do and the huge cost of the price of fuel and this will give the fleet or van owner significant savings. Here at Pellon tyres we have great respect and admiration for Continental tyres products and this new van tyre is no exception. We offer them online at www.pellonautocentre.com

Reduced fuel consumption and lower rolling resistance are the hallmarks of the new Continental Van Eco tyres for light commercial vehicles. Specially developed for vans such as the Mercedes Viano, Vito and Sprinter, Ford Transit and Volkswagen T5, Continental’s VancoEco boasts up to 30% less rolling resistance and a calculated four percent saving in fuel and emissions, than standard versions. At the same time engineers have managed to cut the braking distances on both wet and dry road surfaces making the tyre more car-like in its performance.

Uniroyal Winter Tyres- To Unveil (Two New 4X4 Tyres)-Plus the MS 77 SUV Winter Tyres

Uniroyal Winter Tyres;Pellon tyres in Halifax would like to introduce the new tyre from Uniroyal tyres,

A member of the Continental tyre group.Uniroyal  are introducing two new models to their 4×4  product range. The new tyres will be called the Rain Expert and the  Uniroyal Winter TyresUniroyal Rainsport 2 . Both these types are developed for the Uniroyal Winter Tyres SUV  market. These tyres are used for on -road use. Therefore, have been developed  to give extra grip to the SUV type vehicle.Especially, in heavy rain and more winter conditions.What Does SUV Stand For ?. Sport Utility Vehicles.
Historically this type of vehicle has been bad to handle in winter conditions and Uniroyal are one of a number of  manufacturers to develop products that will make the SUVs handle better in adverse weather conditions.The new Uniroyal Winter Tyres will be recognizable from the standard road tyres with the “SUV” mark on the  sidewall, and have a different product description on price lists etc.
This new one will be available in sizes from 17 to 20 inch diameter sizes, this covers most of the SUV models on sale today.

Uniroyal Winter Tyres

As a tyre dealer of many years.As a result, I can remember when Uniroyal first became established in Yorkshire. Uniroyal, set up a distribution centre in Seacroft an outer suburb of Leeds. Consequently,with easy access to the A1 motorway.  Becoming, part of the Continental  group. The Leeds depot was then closed. Then they re-located to Pontefract as were Semperit tyres. This was to make distribution easier for the whole group. But this was also to be closed down at a later date.

Uniroyal have also brought out the  MS plus 77 which is said to set a new standard for Uniroyal Winter Tyres. Tyre technology has been consistently designed to operate in  today’s winter conditions on our roads. This new tyre gives excellent grip and road handling features in anything that the weather can throw at them.

Naturally,with excellent performance on wet and cold surfaces and a high level of safety in snow. Of course, it is a new force in winter tyres.

Uniroyal will be well remembered by the excellent TV adverts that became very famous, because of the use of animals including chimps and other primates, which were swing in the jungle using a rope and a Uniroyal tyre. The idea I think, was that the animals did not slip in the rain using the Uniroyal tyres.

These Uniroyal tyres are available now from Pellon tyres

Continental Tyres UK Ltd-Spies In Your Tyres? This Gizmo Will Help Your Car Drive Itself

Continental Tyres UK Ltd

Continental Tyres UK Ltd

A few years back, on a week long bus tour of Continental Tyres UK Ltd AG’s technology and engineering centers in Germany, one item attracted more attention from journalists than nearly any of the other whiz-bang connected-car stuff: A simple tire pressure monitor.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Continental Tyres UK Ltd new TPMS and more idea

This article written by Bob Gritzinger.Therefore, is all about the new ideas and inventions. Thrown about by the Auto industry at the moment. Consequently, this idea from Continental Tyres UK Ltd has now been tested on truck tyres. But at the moment I don’t know whether it has been a success or not. I suspect it will be effective. Because the concept of a monitor. Hence, vulcanised into the tyre. Relaying out information electronically about such things as tyre pressures and the inside temperature of the tyre is obviously of great benefit to the driver of the vehicle.

The device will be able to aid truckers. Because it will also be able to send the driver information. Thus, about the load that the tyre is carrying. Including  the traction details of the tyre, with this giving the driver the knowledge that the full load and road conditions can be checked as the truck is rolling along. I don’t know what sort of signals theIce road truckers would be getting from their in built TPMS tyres?

Continental Tyres UK Ltd

The new Continental Tyres UK Ltd valve sends out the information. Hence, out by wireless signals. Therefore, is picked up in the cab by the driver on an in-car system very similar to the ones now where the TPMS Valves signals are fitted to the wheels. Continental Tyres UK Ltd says that this is all part the future that may introduce the driverless vehicle to our towns and cities. If an object penetrates a

tyre the system will pick up the loss of pressure and stop the car in some sort of safe area and the problem reported and fixed.
