Pirelli Van Tyres-New Tyre Range for Camper Van Tyres from Pirelli Tyres

Famous Italian tyre-makers Pirelli Van Tyres have brought out a new range of tyres

Meeting the needs of the modern van and the new van driver. Vans can now do much faster speeds with higher payloads and so need the van tyres to cope with these conditions. Some vans can now carry payloads of up to 3.5 tonnes and require tyres with the capacity to carry these higher loads at faster speeds.

Pirelli Van Tyres “Chrono” van tyre

The new Chrono tyre has been developed by Pirelli Van Tyres .To cope with the demands of the smaller type delivery vans such as the Ford Transit Connect. These smaller types of vans have to deal with increased robustness. While driving at higher speeds. These vans have higher comfort levels for the drivers. In fact, modern vans are not far behind cars in the comfort stakes. Therefore the tyres have to be more flexible. They contain the correct compound for when the vans are loaded and unloaded. At the same time, the tyre must be able to carry loads at speed while also keeping a good mileage record; these vans are working vans, and tyre economy comes into the equation.

The new  Chrono Pirelli Van Tyres lives up to all these standards and is available in wheel sizes from 14inch to 17inch.

Pirelli Van Tyres “Chrono” Camper Van Tyre.
This next tyre in the Italian tyre maker’s range is created for the camper van type vehicle. Camper van tyres are also a must for the Motor Home sector. These tyres have a reinforced structure specially designed for these cars. This structure increases the tyre life from the risk of so-called “flat spots”, which happen when the camper is parked, and then proceeds on its journey at speed.
This tyre also gives improved stability during cornering with higher levels of grip. All in all an excellent product to buy for your tourer and motorhome. The Pirelli Van Tyres come in sizes for 15 inches and 16-inch wheels.

Pirelli “Chrono”4 seasons and “Chrono” Winter tyres

They have also developed the “4 seasons” tyre for use in a regular winter a little of all kinds of weather as in a typical winter. The winter tyre is made to cope with more severe conditions.
