Nokian Winter Tyres

Nokian Winter Tyres

The compound on the Nokian Winter Tyres, is generated from computers to provide the tyres with tread pattern with, high-void all-terrain pattern with interlocking tread blocks. 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. The Nokian Winter Tyres, with all their siping can now run much quieter, on normal tarmac roads, due to the computer design.

This was great news for the tyre industry. But also great news for road safety. So at last the motorists have taken notice of the tyre experts and friends. Many garages and tyre dealers are beginning to increase stocks of snow tyres. But stocks are very low so telephone or go online to see what you can find. Remember this is only the beginning of winter and so snow or winter tyres will be a good investment.

Garages and tyre retailers began to see the motorists complimenting them. On how good these type of tyres really were in snow. Many garages and tyre dealers have some stocks of snow tyres. Hence, stocks are very low so telephone or go online to see what you can find.

Motorists from all over the country. Were bestowing the advantages of changing to winter tyres. From summer tyres for the winter months. Prices in the last few weeks have doubled. Indeed put the price out of reach for many motorists.

Especially with smaller cars, silly when safety is at stake, perhaps next winter people should start buying their tyres at the end of summer. Thus, when prices are not much different to summer tyres.

It looks like the penny may have dropped as regards the drivers of SUV and Crossover vehicles. Indeed many SUV owners are also thinking about a set of spare wheels with snow tyres fitted. This seems to me to make the most common sense thing to do. Of course, you could go to a breakers yard for a set or pair of used wheels to keep the cost down.

SUV drivers really suffered in the harsh snowy winters of a couple of years ago. We noticed that the BMW drivers were all over the road. Skidding on their summer tyres. I think that some of these drivers thought that they were invincible in bad weather. As a result they were far from safe? The large diameter wheels on this type of vehicle meant that in bad weather then they lost control very easily.

Many of these SUV drivers did eventually fit or buy a set of spare steel wheels. This is the most effective way for using winter tyres and you would probably make a set last three winters or more. So, by changing them from your summer tyres from say November to March. Some tyre dealers have started storing customers winter tyres or wheels over the Summer months. Known as “tyre hotels” some for a small fee others may do it for free. Therefore, it may be worth asking, especially for those living in flats or drivers without a garage.

As mentioned before I have had many customers telephoning me. Thanking me for the advice I have given them about fitting snow tyres. One lady customer was so pleased that she came back and wanted a set fitting to her mothers car she was so impressed. The sting in the tail is that suppliers started to inflate prices due to demand. Especially internet companies from the continent.

Nokians were in great demand. They were always number one in European tyre tests and so were much sought after.Now of course Nokian tyres have built up a UK tyre dealer network. Pellon Tyres are the Nokian dealers for the Calder valley area of the UK.

This winter 2010/ 2011 has proved to be worse than the winter before. Indeed November of that year had been breaking records for the coldest and the amount of snow fall. Indeed in South Yorkshire the snow reached depths of two feet in some areas. Of course, stranding many motorists, the only people who could move had either 4×4 s or were fitted with winter tyres.

Nokian Targets CUV-SUV Tyre Market

Garages and auto centres have noticed a massive increase in All-weather tyre sales this winter. However some motorists took the advice of some experts, who commented that, “motorists are becoming much more safety conscious” and “have bought new snow tyres this winter for the first time”. In fact there has been a rapid growth in the number of tyre companies. Hence, that are developing the all-weather tyres.

Nokian Targets CUV-SUV Tyre Market

Most notably Michelin tyres brought out the excellent CrossClimate tyres. This is a bit of an anomaly. because it is a summer tyre with winter tyre capabilities. This tyre carries the three peaks snow tyre sidewall emblem.

These Michelin CrossClimate have proved to be a great success. In fact many motorists are beginning to discover the great advantage of snow and winter tyres in bad weather situations. Garages and tyre dealer began to see the motorists complimenting them. of course, on how good these type of tyres really were in snow.

 Nokian Tyres Inc. is once again expanding its lineup of all-season tires designed specifically for the North American market. The eNtyre C/S targets the growing CUV and SUV tire segment.

Nokian Safety Winter Tyres-Worth Thinking About the Winter Ahead? Look At Winter Tyres For Family Safety

Nokian Safety Winter Tyres

Nokian Safety Winter Tyres

Nokian Safety Winter Tyres

It seems crazy to me? here I am In the middle of August. Writing about winter tyres. This is something that I have done for years now. Unfortunately, I just cant get out of the habit.

I think it may be that the days are already getting shorter. Of course, I am an early riser. Consequently,the mornings are now in darkness at 5 am when I get up and see to my dogs.

So this is when I start to think about the winter and of course, winter tyres. As a result, I always order my first load of logs for the winter fires at this time of year.

Nokian Safety Winter Tyres this winter at Pellon Tyres

Of course winter tyres are the ultimate safety companion for your car. Therefore, a number of separate tests. Have shown that winter tyres are the only tyre that reduces braking distances. Thus, when driving in winter. Winter tyres have a far less stopping distance when braking in snow than the regular summer tyres. Hence that are fitted as original equipment by car manufacturers.

Of course, in many parts of Europe motorists are required by law to fit their car with winter tyres. From November onwards, vehicles that are not fitted with approved winter tyres. Hence, are not allowed to use the roads. According to a number of separate tyre tests. Winter tyres are the only tyre that reduces braking distances when driving in winter.

The countries with winter tyre laws do have a harsher winter than the UK. However as we all know then bad weather can strike at any time. Drivers in say Finland will drive on snow throughout the winter. The UK is different with our climate of mixed weather. it is though a more dangerous scenario. When the snow does arrive, then we are not ready for it. As a result, we get into all sorts of trouble. Trying to drive on snow covered roads with summer tyres fitted to their cars.

Nokian Safety Winter Tyres Whats the difference?

When you look at a winter tyre compared to a summer tyre. Then you will see the main difference? Winter tyres are designed with very small slits called sipes. Down the edges of the main tread blocks. On top of helping with grip, they displace the slush and snow a lot better than other seasonal tyres. In my opinion including all-weather tyres. Summer tyres for example, when going over snow, compact it, making it extremely slippery and solid.

Also winters are made out of a different compound than summer tyres. This includes a silica based material that allows the tyres to flex better. Especially when the temperature drops below 7 degrees C. This allows the tyre sidewall to become more flexible. Thus, giving the tread with all the sipes a better footprint in bad weather. We have nothing but praise from our regular customers. When they have fitted winters and therefore have had no safety issues in any types of weather.

For us the past couple of years our winters have been mild, wet, slushy at worst.So there is now almost an entire generation of drivers. That may have to start learning the skills of snow and ice driving. So, during those late autumn months it would be a good choice to take those summers off and slap on the winters. As I have emphasized . Winter tyres will pay for themselves in terms of control and safety before you know it.

Nokian Safety Winter Tyres a massive safety feature

For a long time, we in the tyre trade have had to dispel a wide spread and out dated belief. Hence,that winter tyres can only be used in icy or snow covered surfaces. Perhaps at one time this was true, but with the advances in rubber compound technology by adding “silica“. Including, tread pattern design. Then these tyres today can be used in many other inclement weather circumstances.

A recent survey in Canada. Reported that those who drive with winter tyres on their cars. As a result suffer less accidents. In fact most of Canada make winter tyres compulsory in the winter months. British Columbia have very stringent tyre laws relating to winter driving. Including a 3.5 mm tread depth on winter tyres. Of all the accidents that happened in Prince Edward Island, only 6% were fitted with winter tyres.

What is the reason behind such laws? Well, it’s pretty obvious – winter tyres significantly help you maintain control during times when perhaps other tyres, not designed for driving in ice, snow or heavy rain would let you down. This includes the drivers here in the UK. For this reason, I have chosen Nokian winter tyres together with General winter tyres as my main tyre lines this winter. Both these tyre brands have world wide recognition for their quality a durability in the toughest of winter weather conditions.

Nokian Winter Tyres-Are still one of the top winter tyre performers in recent tyre tests

Yorkshires latest Nokian winter tyres dealer.

I am very proud to become the newest Winter Tyres dealer in Yorkshire. Nokian tyres are an excellent product. Especially, in the form of winters .Hence,when the mad rush for winters is on. Thus, we can normally only get them from Germany. As the winter progresses the price of these tyres goes up and up.

Nokian  Tyres have been around for a long time.Consequently, are produced in Finland and Russia. Two of the coldest and snowiest countries in the World. If they do not know how to make tyres then nobody does. For tyre companies to prove their products it is important that they enter their tyres in tests that are held independently by motor sport magazines. One of the most influential magazines in the world is the “Auto Bild” magazine , who hold regular tyre testing events on summer and winter tyres, these test are carried out with complete impartiality and the results can be completely trusted. The tyres were tested earlier this year and were tested with top ratings coming in as the top winter tyre in that size.

The tyre tested was the 205/55×16 tyres , the most common tyres in use today, and was described as with exceptional performance in snow with well balanced handling properties.

In years gone by, then winter tyres were made to look like tough tyres that gripped in snow. However, these tyres were probably made from the same materials as summer tyres. Older drivers amongst us have many concerns about the effectiveness of winter tyres. Hence some consumers think that these type of tyres wear quicker and may degrade at a faster rate than that of a normal car tyres.

As a result, it depends on your priorities, winter tyres are actually more expensive too. In my opinion then it is far better to be safer and spend a little more money than If you were to go skidding off the road. Hence, we just cannot compromise when it comes to the safety of your family. Yes, these tyres are expensive but if you were to buy some at the very beginning of winter you can get some really good deals. For example, here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, Yorkshire, UK. So, we have a few last years stock for sale at reduced prices?

Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Nine-Winter tyres have special compounds

Nowadays, Winter tyres are made from special compounds. Consequently, that work best at temperatures of 7 degrees or less. Most of the UK experiences temperatures below this between November and March. In particularly cold years we can usually expect frost on almost half the days of winter. When you have winters fitted to your vehicle, your stopping distance can be shortened by up to 30 feet on icy roads. of course,your safety and vehicle’s handling will be greatly improved. So, reducing the risk of skidding, aquaplaning or sliding.

Tyre manufacturers are always striving  to make better winter tyre products.So, go with the rule that the newer the type of tyre then the better it will be when you fit your new tyres. Tyre manufacturers are always working with the car makers to come up with a better tyre product. Therefore, year after year we are seeing better tyres. Including winter tyres. This is down to the fact that the technology that designs the tyres these days are constantly advancing and evolving. Meaning that the latest tyres will always be the safest and most road worthy.

Nokian Tyres are no exception to this rule. Constantly striving to make a better tyre product. new innovations include better tyre designs for newer types of vehicles. Including SUV’s and Crossover vehicles. hence, the tyres for these vehicle are designed to maximise traction on icy and snow covered roads.I can remember the first recent bad winter coincided with the advent of the SUV’s from BMW in particular. These cars were sliding all over the place and useless in the winter weather.

Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Nine-Best fitted in early November

People were really panicking ? Winter tyres were difficult to get hold of. Most of the allocations were taken up and tyre dealers wanted silly prices due to the panic. When you first start to use snow tyres, you should understand when the best time is to put these on your motor vehicle.So,the usual rule is to have them fitted to the car before the first predicted snow fall of the year.  I usually fit the winter car tyres in early November.

Safe driving is really important during winter, and in addition to fitting winter tyres to your car, there are other ways to improve your driving during the colder months:
Winter tyres are essential when preparing to drive in ice conditions. The winter tyre (also known as the snow tyre) can protect you in those unexpected times when you get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Indeed I can remember when I took my family to Chester zoo. It was a beautiful sunny winters day. later that afternoon we sat off back home to Yorkshire.

So, as we approached the Pennine hills on our way home, the sky became darker and darker. Never suspecting an imminent blizzard, I decided to take a short cut across some minor roads as we headed home. Of course, the snow began to fall? my kids were very excited at the thought of playing out in the horrible white stuff. Blizzard condition ensued. At the time we had a Toyota mini bus and the roads soon filled with snow. As a result I could feel the rear wheeled drive Toyota slipping on the packed snow.

Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Nine-Better designed tread pattern

Fortunately , I practice what I preach and had fitted a set of general winter tyres to the minibus, just a few weeks before. I knew that all I had to do was to drive carefully and the winter tyre would do the rest. Sure enough they helped me get home when many other vehicles became stranded in the snowy conditions.

In my eyes this was the “proof of the pudding” . Giving me even more enthusiasm when talking to my customers about the benefit of fitting Nokian winter tyres.

This experience proves that In winter, the condition and performance of your Nokian tyres is extremely important. Winter tyres have a specially designed tread and composition. So, in order to provide the most effective grip, handling and safety for drivers. It’s an excellent idea, therefore, to change to specialist tyres to improve your winter driving. Increase your fuel efficiency. Ensuring the safety of you and your passengers during the winter months.

Because of the fact that Nokian tyres are constant tyre test winners with their winter tyre products. Then we at Pellon Tyres can only endorse them as probably the best ones that you can buy to keep your family safe? just in case you get caught out in the wrong place. As me and my family did returning from a sunny Chester Zoo.

Of course, Nokian Winter Tyres have become a world wide product name. because of their outstanding ability in winter weather conditions.

Countries with all winter round snow and ice have felt the benefits of fitting Nokian winters for a long time now.

Here in countries like the UK, then we dont get the same snow affected winters as our more Northern counter parts. However Nokian winters will help protect you family in all winter conditions.

In my opinion then safety is paramount. Any driver that finds themselves in a skidding car fitted out with summer tyres will vouch for that.

So there is nothing worse than loosing your car on a wet or snow covered road. Millions of drivers have experienced this, but it can be avoided. Cars are now getting larger and so are the tyres. Ladies love to sit high up with good all round vision of the road. In actual fact so do I ! This is because when we are in a higher up seat position we all feel safer (ask truck drivers!!)

One of the slighter down sides of the SUV’s and Crossover cars is that the tyres are larger and in many cases narrower. This is how they have been developed with the car manufacturers. Of course, these cars are fitted with summer tyres. Nothing wrong with that! until winter comes along. I will never forget the first winter when the BMW and Mercedes SUV’s were on the roads for the first time.

Nokian Winter Tyre Test Winners Again-SUV vehicles were useless in the first snow fall that we had.

Here in Halifax UK where it is very hilly, SUV’s were getting stuck everywhere. As a result our phones never stopped ringing. People were hunting around for winter tyres, they were getting hopelessly stuck. Since then drivers have learned their lesson.

Hence, many drivers are now fitting Nokian winter tyres every year. So, just as a safety precaution. These tyres are superb in winter conditions and will enhance your families safety when having to travel in snowy winter conditions.

We at Pellon Tyres recommend any brand of winter tyres. Because, I have personally tested and tried the Nokian Winter tyre brand. These tyres are superb. Not only do they give extra protection when driving in snow and ice, but also heavy rain. Especially on motorways. Another Nokian bonus is that these tyres are really quiet. My family car is a large SUV and the winter tyres do not make any difference to road noise.

Of course these Nokian Winter Tyre Test Winners Again are well worth recommending. Check your tyre size online

This winter is becoming one of the best years for our customers buying their first set of winter tyres.(Nokian Winter Tyres Winners)

It is probably due to the fact that we have had a run of cold snowy winters. Over the past three or four years and the need for winter tyres are slowly sinking in. We also have a large Polish community in the Halifax area. Of course this is where where my tyre-centre is situated.Polish people are familiar with the need for winter tyres. In fact I think it may now be compulsory in Poland to fit winter tyres from November to march. Hence, the same as some other European countries.

Which winter tyres ?

We have found over the years that as an independent tyre retailer, most customers think in two ways. Either they know exactly what they want, or they will take our recommendations. Of course, as to which brand and at what price to pay for their tyres.

Nokian Winter Tyres

Scenes like this will be common in the UK the first week of March 2018

The majority of our customers come to us on word of mouth recommendations. Because they have received good advice and service in the past. Subsequently, we know this because we do not advertise as such. Perhaps, only through social media sites and internet directories.

In the past when our profit margins were higher we would regularly take out full page ads in the local papers, costing us an arm and a leg, we never really knew if the ads paid off or not.Yokohama Winter Tyres

We have and still do sell many different brands of tyres including winter tyres. In the past two years we have been able to buy our tyres from the major tyre companies because we are a member of a buying group known as Point-S tyres.

Nokian Winter Tyres Winners

We were very happy to open an account with Nokian Winter Tyres . Because we knew from experience that this company made excellent tyres, including winter tyres. This will be our third year selling Nokian Winter Tyres Winners and we are pleased with the very good response we had from the drivers who have experienced these tyres in winter conditions. The Halifax area is very hilly, we are in the foothills of the Pennine mountain range and therefore we have very tricky roads. Especially in winter snowy conditions.

The latest car to arrive for a set of four Nokian Winter Tyres was a Land Rover-Freelander 2-GS-TD4. This nice looking car had a set of four 235/65R17 108H  Winter tyres. It’s great when you love the job that you are doing and can write about it in our company blog.

Of course Nokian are one of the world leaders in tyres. Especially winter tyres. So, manufacturing an excellent range of tyre products. In my opinion though, their winter tyres are second to none. offering different types of tyres for climates with different winter conditions.

For instance, here in Halifax in Northern England we have a mixed winter climate. So, in many winters we do have snowy conditions and certainly icy roads. Therefore it would be prudent to fit at least all-weather tyres for winter driving. However, I do believe that because of the the hilly terrain. Then full blown winter tyres are the answer for complete safety.

Nokian winter tyres fit the safety standards criteria

Dont get me wrong ? most tyre manufacturers make a very good winter tyre product. Fortunately for us, we are able to source almost any make of tyre within the same day. Up to the present time, Nokian have had a pricing structure on the expensive side. however, in recent years the famous tyre brand has become more and more competitive.

This brings the award winning tyres in line with other tyre manufacturers. So, making Nokian more competitive and easier obtainable. Sooner or later a better distribution system had to become a priority for the Finnish tyre company. After all they do claim to be the first tyre company to bring out a winter tyre. Specially for countries that have snow fall. Including us here in the UK.

So, a new distributor system was rolled out. Nokian offered this to Point-S members across the UK . Including here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK. As a result, we now keep a reasonable stock of popular winter tyre and all-season tyres stock of popular sizes. All things considered , we can also get a next day delivery of the massive diversity of other tyre sizes. of course from Nokians warehouse in Scotland UK.

Of course, I write about this subject on a regular basis! Especially as winter time approaches. Although winters have been very mid in recent times! Then I can still remind drivers that it was not too long ago that we indeed had some bad snow falls.

Including the so called “Beast from the East” phenomena. So, many millions of drivers were caught out by the cold blast of air coming out of Russia. Vehicle drivers were in fact caught out with all sorts of easily rectified problems.

Screen bottles frozen?

So, apart from drivers being caught out with trying to drive through snow with summer tyres fitted. Another main problem was cars with frozen wind screen washer  bottles a their associated pipes. To prevent this all that was needed was to fill the washer bottles with the correct strength of washer solution? I must confess that our total commitment for advising drivers about fitting wintertyres is now starting to pay off.

November is the start for many of our customers to fit winter tyres on their vehicle. Drivers are now aware of the vast safety features that winter tyres offer the motorist. Our advice is that all winter tyres are better that driving on summer tyres. Significantly, in winter driving conditions. However we do recommend that you consider looking at the award winning Nokian Winter Tyre range.

In recent times we also recommend the fitting of all-weather tyres for all year round safer driving. Much more winter car protection advice is given in the attached article from the Metro Newspaper.winter tyre add

Because of the so called “Beast of the East” then we were all caught out by the massive snow falls and cold temperature of the past week or so. In fact the whole of Europe was swept over by freezing “Siberian” air carried by easterly winds from Russia.

Scenes like this image were common place all across the British Isles. No one escaped it. I think we were caught out by the fact that in the last few winters we have had relatively little or no snow.

Before that we have had spells of cold weather including snow falls in the winter period.

So were drivers ready for the bad weather?

To be fair, many motorists do fit winter tyres in November. In fact we did have some really bad winters and so we at Pellon Tyres in Halifax UK, decided to start a winter tyre hotel. For those new to bad winters, this is where people store the set of tyres that they are not using.

In summer we store the winter tyres and in winter the summer tyres. The only charge we make is for the actual fitting and balancing of the tyres. This has worked very well and keeps our customer base very happy. Unfortunately, we have no more vacancies at the moment our winter tyre hotel is full to the rafters.

However we do sell loads of winter tyre products. Our latest growth area is the addition of Nokian tyres as one of our suppliers of winter tyres. Nokian are building up a UK network of tyre suppliers in the UK. Of course pellon Tyres are honoured to become one of the Nokian tyre centres. Nokian also do a excellent range of Summer tyres including the X line range of “Aramid” reinforced SUV summer tyres.

As a result this article goes through some of the other ideas to help drivers in difficult snowy conditions.

Nokian E-Line 2 Summer Tyres-A Tyre with An AA Rating due to Tough Aramid Protection Technology

Nokian E-Line 2 Summer Tyres

Nokian E-Line 2 Summer Tyres

In my early days of blogging. Then I used to write about almost every new tyre that was introduced by the manufactures. Eventually this began to grind me down. Most new tyres were similar to the last one, or claimed to be the tyre that was greener than the rest. As a result, I have been selling tyres for about forty years now. In the long run, tyres are just a consumer product.

This is certainly true to an extent. Tyre companies have had to come out with different solutions in recent years mainly due to the pressure from car manufacturers. In turn car manufacturers have also been under pressure from governments to bring down the emissions produced by their cars. This pressure has effected every part of the car. Including the tyres.

Tyre were beginning to become smaller and fatter. The 50 and 55 series tyres were introduced to fit some of the sportier cars in the market place. Looks were the thing. If a car looked good on fat tyres then that was kool ?

Things had to change for cars to become more eco friendly. Tyres were being made from unusual materials to make them lighter in weight. Continental are developing the white sticky liquid from “dandelions” Strange but dandelions have the same molecular build up as latex rubber. Yokohama tyres are using “orange skin oils” in their tyre compound mix.

Therefore a tyre that is lighter in weight and is built with a taller overall diameter is much greener.

These tyres will go further. using less of the vehicles fuel. Because they are carrying less weight than there predecessors.  The European Union brought out a guide line to show which tyres were the best in each department. The “A” is for fuel efficiency  the “B” is fore wet cornering and the “C” is in decibels for tyre noise. When the SUV market began to take off then there was a need to improve “Rolling Resistance” This was done by hardening the tyres compound.

Consequently this had the effect of the tyres having poor cornering. Especially in wet weather. Experiments were carried out with the new materials and “silica” would become the answer. Now most tyres contain silica. This gives the tyres a better rolling resistance and also helps the grip in wet weather situations. Companies were coming out with AA rated tyres the first were the Goodyear Efficient Grips, Pirelli Cinturato P7 Blue and the Bridgestone Ecopia EP001S tyres.

The latest addition to this group is the Nokian E-Line 2 tyres.

As a result Nokian have added an excellent safety feature to the tyre an “Aramid” reinforcement is fitted to the range of SUV summer tyres .This new reinforcement is fitted to the range of SUV summer tyres. Extremely durable Aramid staple fibres, which are also successfully used in bulletproof vests, stiffen and reinforce the sidewall to make it exceptionally resistant to wear and cuts. This is a major safety feature. Especially with the growing amount of potholes that are appearing all over the place.

These sidewalls are so tough that Nokian Tyres Aramid Guarantee covers accidentally on sidewall damaged tyres and provides you with a new, corresponding product free of charge.

You can check out if Nokian E-Line 2 Summer Tyres make an Aramid tyre for your car by clicking and putting your car details in.
