Pellon Tyres in Halifax UK are a member of a tyre buying group that go by the name of “Point-S”.

Every year we are invited to a conference. Usually held at the same time every year, February. This year was no exception.

As a result, we attended the beautiful “Belfry” Golf and leisure centre for the two day get together. The Belfry is North of Birmingham. Although not a golfer myself it is set in beautiful country side and is a most pleasurable experience to visit.

Hence, the conference starts the day with a “market place” of suppliers showing off their latest products and anything else to do with tyres and batteries.

It is a great place to meet up with old and new friends and acquaintances. The morning is followed by a Point-S presentation talking about last years figures and thing for the new 2018 year to come.

The talk is always interesting and gives us chance to compare ourselves with the performance of others in similar businesses to our own in Halifax.

The market place event was very interesting with good information about new TPMS (Tyre pressure monitoring systems) equipment coming on stream. We also visited the stand of Nankang tyres. of course this is when i spotted the largest car tyre that I have seen in my forty years as a tyre depot owner. Next to a small normal ever day tyre was a 30/25zr32 Tyre made by a company from Thailand “Lexani

This Lexani was by far the largest car tyre that I have ever seen in the UK. The tyre was fitted to a type of “Chevy” in America. However I did notice that on an American website called “Donk” that Yokohama make a 40 ins car tyre. For drivers who would like to increase  their tyre size. Thus I would like them to go to an excellent tyre size calculator website to the calculate the desired tyre size for their cars.

Upgrading Your Tyre Size  Upgrading Your Tyre Size

This is a great article from Pirelli tyres.Hence, explains in short, what happens if you change your tyre size. Naturally, most drivers keep exactly the same tyres as were supplied with e new car. Wheels and tyres are designed by the tyre manufacturers and the car manufacturers. Of course, some tyre dealers also sell wheels. Therefore, these people become experts at fitting other tyre sizes. Thus also recommending fitting other sizes of wheels and tyres.

Usually, it is the younger driver that wants to upgrade his car onto different wheels and tyres. I must admit that this is a market that we at Pellon Tyres struggle with? People do not want the wheels that we keep in stock. Accordingly, they only want the wheels that you can’t get. However ,if the driver does fit new tyres and wheels it is important that the correct ones are fitted.

Wider wheels are usually wanted. Because of this it is important that the correct height is kept. This is known as “overall diameter”. There is an amount of tolerance involved. Thus, this is about 15%. You can get official tyre company charts that give you the correct change of tyre and wheel size. It is also worth remembering that your tyre size affects your speedo reading.

TO double check your speedo. Then you can check the reading against your SAT Nav.
