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.

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.

Many motorists decide that they would like to fit Continental tyres 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. So. have  that happens when roads  are very wet and slippery. You’ll also find that road accidents are twice as likely to happen. Of course, on the wet road too . Including another important factor ! not to forget is that most of these vehicles will be running on bald tyres.

Because of these accidents. Drivers, tend to go for tyres that will keep them as safe as possible. Especially, during the bad weather. So, helping them to minimise the risk of being involved in an accident. It’s so important to make sure that you’re taking extra care. Especially, when driving in bad conditions Finding, that many people on the roads are driving. Consequently,without the correct tyres fitted to their vehicle.

Most people tend to think that the reason why driving in wet conditions

So, causes accidents. Because of the spray and through loss of visibility.Of course, 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  have been designed. Of course, makes sure that they  perform to their best ability. Most importantly, when the weather outside is very wet. Tyres works is to disperse as much water away from the road as possible . So,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 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.

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.
