Dave Smith of Pellon Tyres in Halifax West Yorkshire. Enjoyed a great day out at the Silverstone race track on Sunday. So, Dave took along his two children. Because although the car racing was good, there was also a funfair. Including, plenty of good eating places. Of course, Dave also took a few pictures for the Pellonautocentre blog, (a splendid idea, ).I thought.

Michelin takes a significant part in the Renault event.  Mainly I think because they are both French companies. It still shows though that the most well-known tyre company in the World. Consequently,  still take part in many events. In the past this has made them one of the best tyre products on today’s cars. Including, both production cars and racing cars tyres. I still can not praise them enough. So, in my early days of been a tyre dealer I hated Michelin tyres because their business plans never included the small guys.

Michelin Tyres Dominant; The parents of the modern tyre

All their efforts went to selling the tyre products to larger companies, however over the years I have slowly grown to like and indeed admire the enormous effort and resources that they have put in to help develop today’s modern tyres. We at Pellon sell Michelin tyres at competitive prices online at www.pellontyres.co.uk

Michelin racing tyres are dipping their feet in the world of motorsport again, by supplying tyres to other types of racing, including the FE Championships, which are, of course, the F1 version using electric cars.

“Michelin is back as the official tyre supplier in the STCC. Four classes will compete on the deck from the French manufacturer Michelin 2015 and will supply four levels in the STCC package. Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia goes alongside the sister class Swedish GT formula car class Formula Renault 1.6 and the main class STCC”, said a spokesman for the Scandinavian championship.

Yokohama Tyres investment-to give Pellon Tyres a 25 years Celebrations Facelift

Yokohama Tyres investment

Yokohama tyres are also interested in promoting the small tyre dealer with some Yokohama Tyres investment , they believe as I do that the local independent tyre dealer

Yes that’s right in 2014 (not far off now!) I have been the proud owner of Pellon Tyre and Autocentre here in Halifax, West Yorkshire in the UK.I just can not believe where the time has gone, my kids are all grown up and we have been here for almost 25 years and loved every minute. As an independent tyre business and garage it has been a great time in the tyre industry, with many changes taking place.

Yokohama Tyres investment facelift in Halifax uk

In my opinion. Computerization of the business and the internet have had the greatest impact. So on the way that modern garages are run. It has been fascinating see the massive changes. In climate change that has entered into the world of auto’s.

Yokohama Tyres investment

Changing and re-shaping the way we think and the massive drive towards lower emissions. Now the development of the electric car. Consequently, and all the implications that will go with that.

I am pleased to say that as a small independent garage. We have taken the right roads. Still able to confirm that we are very busy. Despite all the competition from the huge national companies . So that are able to expand (and are able to get cash to enable them to do so). We as a small business can not get cash from the banks. Thus, a terrible state of affairs.

Car Tyre Prices have plummeted in recent times. So due to internet competition. Subsequently, we are still able to compete. One of the positives for me has been the formation of Point-S, here in the UK. Point-S has been very strong in Europe for over 30 years. Recently been introduced in the UK. Point-S gives us many things. Because it makes us feel as if we part of a large group (which we are) and not isolated as one depot in Halifax.

Enter Yokohama tyres

Being a member of Point-S enabled us to buy from the tyre manufacturers direct, and not through the wholesalers, this gave us better prices and also target rebates. This has enabled us to retain some of the margins that have been eroded by the internet competition and also makes me feel more secure going into the future.Another important part of dealing with the tyre manufacturers, is that they are willing to help with other aspects of the business, such as promotional work and display materials.

This is where Yokohama tyres online come into the picture. Apart from a great range of tyre products, Yokohama tyres are also interested in promoting the small tyre dealer with some Yokohama Tyres investment , they believe as I do that the local independent tyre dealer has a part to play in the big picture. So I was taken a back when they offered to re-design my depot frontage and reception.

This would also coincide with our 25 years anniversary next year ,only a few months away in 2014. Yokohama tyres are a top class product and we at Pellon tyres feel honoured to sell their tyres and work in partnership along with the guys at Point-S. I have included some images of what the depot will look like when the work is completed.

This Yokohama Tyres investment facelift has added a great new facial look to our tyre shop. The Yokohama Tyres investment also included our reception area, which is now a much brighter place for our customers to relax in.

Use tyres of the same size.

As a very keen gardener and the owner of a garage business, I am always looking for legal ways of using my old scrap. Tyres are now costing me £1 each for disposal and when you fit as many as we do in Halifax, West Yorkshire you can see that any other way of using the old ones will help the environment and also my bottom line.

There are several ways to use old ones for the garden, but this blog will be a “compost heap”.You can visit any Auto center near your location, and they will only be too willing to sort you out with the same size tyres that you will need to stack up for a compost heap.

Recycling an old tyre for a bath for the kids

 

I experimented with a couple of sizes, my garden is quiet large, so I used a size 225/45/17, or you could go for 205/55/16, it all depends on your ability and state of health, but your dealer will only be too glad to give you the old tyres that you need. What I did then, was to lay down the first two one on the top of the other and then started filling them with your garden and house- hold waste,(excluding meat and animal waste). It is best using garden waste such as old veg leaves and other mature greenery, keep it organic.

If you live in Halifax, West Yorkshire Pellon Tyres will only is glad to sort you out with old tyres. Free of charge.

As the tyres fill up, you can just add another tyre on top and carry on to the desired height. When you have reached your limit you can cover the top to keep the rain out if you live in a wet part of your country or leave the top off, remember a compost heap built from old tyres must be kept moist to allow the composting to take place. The old tyres are made of the perfect material to retain the moisture you require for complete composting.

This is an interesting point; I suppose that regular car maintenance has an effect on all your car parts in the end. Your Catalytic Converter care, (CAT) is a crucial part of your vehicle. Therefore, is fitted with your engine and the rest of the exhaust system.Thus, some are attached to the manifold, onto the engine, these are known as manifold cats, and some are fitted at the end of a short front pipe on the rest of the exhaust system.

Bigger models of cars sometimes require two cats, cars such as BMWs and MERCs usually have two cats fitted, (very expensive to replace).Catalytic Converter care

Your cat’s primary job is to clean the engine particles that the engine omits. Catalytic converters are made out of ceramic. Thus, with added precious metals (another reason why Catalytic Converter care is critical). Naturally to filter the dirty particles from your engine. Thus reducing the pollutants from entering the atmosphere, this helps us to clean the environment and is part of the UK MOT test.

Catalytic Converter Care

Your cat will only work correctly if the engine operates with the correct ratio of air to fuel. Naturally, this was your car servicing comes in. aged.
