Nokian Winter Tyre benefits
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.
Find out how to drive safely in the winter weather. Before winter arrives, make sure your vehicle is serviced and properly maintained check tyres have the correct tread, are in good condition and inflated correctly.
