Second vintage truck in the same garage when delivering some leisure batteries.

the week we sold twenty to thirty batteries in an area of Southern England. So I decided to do the delivery myself. Because these leisure batteries are very heavy weighing 23 kilos each.Sometimes get broken by the couriers if there is more than one.

I loaded the Online Battery Sales. Of course, with my sat-nav. I set off South at 4.30 am the next morning. Hence, the first six deliveries went well. But I got stuck on the seventh. The customer had bought two 100 amp Lucas leisure batteries. I went up and down the road in a town called Bordon, but could not find the address for the delivery of the batteries. I looked up and down the road, asked people in the local, but to no avail. Finally, I noticed a large house at the side of the road and decided to call in and ask. This was going to my final attempt, if I couldn’t find it now I would return back to Yorkshire and send it by courier, but I hate to give in.

I called in at the house and found that the back garden opened up into a huge parking area, with some tipper trucks parked up. The company were called Williams of Bordon Ltd, I got out of my van and poked my nose into a large garage (looking for a person) where they repaired their trucks and to my surprise saw some wonderful vintage trucks parked up in a line. A gentleman came out of an office building and I explained my position to him,(I also ran out of credits on my antiquated mobile phone). The people were very kind and helpful and the lady in the office rang my customer for the directions and

a very kind guy then showed me where the customer who wanted the Online Battery Sales, leisure batteries lived (I was only 200 yards away). They also allowed me to take a few pictures of their vintage car and trucks, that I have put on this blog.

I would like to thank the very kind people for their help it was most refreshing to see them helping a total stranger.

This new tyre is no exception. The new tyre. Naturally, has been developed to give much-improved road holding. Especially, for the driver who likes to live close to the edge. Therefore, with much-improved road holding due to the addition of racing technology.Plus, 120 years of racing experience built into the new Dunlop Sports Maxx Tyres

This tyre gives much-improved grip. As a result, in both wet and dry road surfaces. This is due to the increased contact area of the road. Because of the tyres huge outer shoulder block area. The new Dunlop Sports Maxx Tyres. Also, boasts two large centre grooves. So, that enable the tyres to dissipate water quickly. Thus, and resist aquaplaning. Keeping the tyre firmly in touch with the road surface in very wet weather. The water is pushed away from the centre grooves via through a set of lateral grooves and away from the tyre.

This is the difference that I always talk about when explaining the difference between cheap tyres and the leading tyre companies, research and development costs a lot of money, this is why companies such as Dunlop tyres are able to command best prices for Dunlop tyres online at Pellon tyres Halifax

Try Different General 4×4 Tyres-On your 4×4 vehicle and you may enjoy a new experience.

Post Updated 20th Dec 2013/27th March 2016

There’s probably nothing wrong with the normal tyres on your 4×4 vehicle? Try Try Different General 4×4 Tyres

Try Different General 4×4 Tyres-The tyre manufacturers have worked closely with the vehicle manufacturer to ensure that the best level of performance and comfort can be achieved in the tyres that they provide.

Most motorist spends most of their time on the normal tarmac roads, the tyres fitted to a vehicle at the factory are also made to provide a certain amount of off-road capability, but the main priorities will be for stability at speed, good steering control and very low noise on the road.

Many off-road 4×4 tyres will perform very well on the normal tarmac roads, but they have a very heavy tread and can be much noisier and the ride can be bumpier and less comfortable. This varies according to the specific 4×4 tyre and the patterns used in the 4×4 tyres tread design.

So these good road tyres are not the correct product for the 4×4 tyres drivers who have more individual needs and bigger aspirations. This includes the owners of ultra-high-performance vehicles who require the highest grip possible or 4×4 owners that need to venture off the road for more fun ?

Whether you are going off road to enjoy wide open spaces, across lanes and streams or scrambling across the specific terrain, for work or sport, correct tyre selection becomes very important and a whole host of new things has to be considered. Remember that road surfaces are tarmac. Off-road surfaces can be hugely different, from muddy fields, peat bogs to rocky ridges, they all offer a more challenging experience if you fit the correct 4×4 tyres on your vehicle.

MAKE SURE YOU GET the RIGHT 4×4 tyres

Choosing the incorrectly sized tyre with a less aggressive tread pattern can mean danger as well as being costly to your pocket and will reduce your tyre performance. For example fitting a mud terrain 4×4 tyre to your vehicle will give excellent levels of grip in the extreme “off road” conditions, but will cause a huge increase in your braking distances and will reduce steering responsiveness. An all round bad experience for you and your vehicle.

You may not always be able to fit a more aggressive tyre in your size it is not always possible to fit the most appropriate tyre for your needs by using the original tyre size recommended for the vehicle. You can buy a wheel and tyre package that fit you 4×4 there are certain conversions for 4×4 vehicles that our experienced 4×4 adviser’s can advise you on.
