Cheap New Tyres- are they false economy ? NO Not compared to Part Worn Tyres

Cheap New Tyres-Part Worn Tyres

Cheap New Tyres

Cheap New Tyres are better than part worn ones

Our customers will buy what they can afford to buy. Hence, in these times of tight recession and strict household budgets. (I myself do not blame them and sometimes will go for the cheap option).

I think that it may be worth pointing out that cheap part worn tyres “are what they really are”.Most of the cheaper brands are copies of tyres (many using inferior quality ingredients) that are made by the major tyre companies and usually made in the far East and China. There is nothing wrong with tyres made in China. Because all imported tyres into the European Union will shortly have to be tested for different qualities. Thus, due to the impending new labelling system. That comes into force later on this year. Therefore, and all imported tyres will have to have certain standards.

Cheap Tyres- are they false economy? that is classed as economy or budgets. Hence, are fine to buy.For this reason, they should not be any threat to road safety. In my opinion, are a much less threat than buying Part Worn Tyres UK or remoulds. The later being the safest of the two choices. Remember it is your own and your families safety.That should be considered when buying all types of car tyres.

Cheap New Tyres

I think it should also be pointed out that (in my opinion), the customers with the newer, larger and faster cars should consider the options when buying new ones. It may be worth remembering that you may be putting you and your family at risk by fitting inferior products with perhaps the wrong speed rating or load rating for your particular car. If you do own a larger car you may consider dropping to a mid-range tyre we at Pellon tyres recommend a make called General tyres, one of the differences is that car tyre makers, participate in motor sport events and use the information gained to develop a better product for the consumer, cheap tyres do not offer any of this, they are simply copied as I have stated earlier in this blog,

Cheap New Tyres- are they a false economy are a good option

As I have stated if you are financially stretched it may be worth considering a drop to a mid-range tyre. The Mid-Range Tyres are also much better in quality to cheap tyres imported from the far east.

Motorists who have normal family cars will be fine on economy new tyres whilst the guys who drive Mercedes and BMWs, should really stick to the original equipment standards of the tyres that were on their cars as original equipment , this type of car was developed in the design stage to work with the tyres that are fitted when the car was new, and the tyres should be fitted to the same standard as the old tyres.

To finish you are still better buying cheap tyres that are new and not any other tyre types, safety should always come first. In short, most people are sensible to choose the product for the price that suits them. Some motorists go for Part Worn Car Tyres, this is fine but they should remember that a law was brought out in 1995 that states that part worn tyres  should be pressure tested and inspected before labelling as safe to use, if the ones you are buying do not have this test label please do not buy them you simply do not know where they have been, opt for budget new ones instead.

In years gone by, then winter tyres were made to look like tough tyres that gripped in snow. However, these tyres were probably made from the same materials as summer tyres. Older drivers amongst us have many concerns about the effectiveness of winter tyres. Hence some consumers think that these type of tyres wear quicker and may degrade at a faster rate than that of a normal car tyres.

As a result, it depends on your priorities, winter tyres are actually more expensive too. In my opinion then it is far better to be safer and spend a little more money than If you were to go skidding off the road. Hence, we just cannot compromise when it comes to the safety of your family. Yes, these tyres are expensive but if you were to buy some at the very beginning of winter you can get some really good deals. For example, here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, Yorkshire, UK. So, we have a few last years stock for sale at reduced prices?

Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Nine-Winter tyres have special compounds

Nowadays, Winter tyres are made from special compounds. Consequently, that work best at temperatures of 7 degrees or less. Most of the UK experiences temperatures below this between November and March. In particularly cold years we can usually expect frost on almost half the days of winter. When you have winters fitted to your vehicle, your stopping distance can be shortened by up to 30 feet on icy roads. of course,your safety and vehicle’s handling will be greatly improved. So, reducing the risk of skidding, aquaplaning or sliding.

Tyre manufacturers are always striving  to make better winter tyre products.So, go with the rule that the newer the type of tyre then the better it will be when you fit your new tyres. Tyre manufacturers are always working with the car makers to come up with a better tyre product. Therefore, year after year we are seeing better tyres. Including winter tyres. This is down to the fact that the technology that designs the tyres these days are constantly advancing and evolving. Meaning that the latest tyres will always be the safest and most road worthy.

Nokian Tyres are no exception to this rule. Constantly striving to make a better tyre product. new innovations include better tyre designs for newer types of vehicles. Including SUV’s and Crossover vehicles. hence, the tyres for these vehicle are designed to maximise traction on icy and snow covered roads.I can remember the first recent bad winter coincided with the advent of the SUV’s from BMW in particular. These cars were sliding all over the place and useless in the winter weather.

Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Nine-Best fitted in early November

People were really panicking ? Winter tyres were difficult to get hold of. Most of the allocations were taken up and tyre dealers wanted silly prices due to the panic. When you first start to use snow tyres, you should understand when the best time is to put these on your motor vehicle.So,the usual rule is to have them fitted to the car before the first predicted snow fall of the year.  I usually fit the winter car tyres in early November.

Safe driving is really important during winter, and in addition to fitting winter tyres to your car, there are other ways to improve your driving during the colder months:
Winter tyres are essential when preparing to drive in ice conditions. The winter tyre (also known as the snow tyre) can protect you in those unexpected times when you get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Indeed I can remember when I took my family to Chester zoo. It was a beautiful sunny winters day. later that afternoon we sat off back home to Yorkshire.

So, as we approached the Pennine hills on our way home, the sky became blacker and blacker.Never suspecting an imminent blizzard, I decided to take a short cut across some minor roads as we headed home. Of course, the snow began to fall? my kids were very excited at the thought of playing out in the horrible white stuff. Blizzard condition ensued. At the time we had a Toyota mini bus and the roads soon filled with snow. As a result I could feel the rear wheeled drive Toyota slipping on the packed snow.

Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Nine-Better designed tread pattern

Fortunately , I practice what I preach and had fitted a set of general winter tyres to the minibus, just a few weeks before. I knew that all I had to do was to drive carefully and the winter tyre would do the rest. Sure enough they helped me get home when many other vehicles became stranded in the snowy conditions.

In my eyes this was the “proof of the pudding” . Giving me even more enthusiasm when talking to my customers about the benefit of fitting winter tyres.

This experience proves that In winter, the condition and performance of your tyres is extremely important. Winter tyres have a specially designed tread and composition. So, in order to provide the most effective grip, handling and safety for drivers. It’s an excellent idea, therefore, to change to specialist tyres to improve your winter driving. Increase your fuel efficiency. Ensuring the safety of you and your passengers during the winter months.

Because of the fact that Nokian tyres are constant tyre test winners with their winter tyre products. Then we at Pellon Tyres can only endorse them as probably the best ones that you can buy to keep your family safe? just in case you get caught out in the wrong place. As me and my family did returning from a sunny Chester Zoo.

Difference between winter tyres-summer tyres-New and better materials now used in winter tyres.

Difference between winter tyres-summer tyres

Difference between winter tyres-summer tyres

Difference between winter tyres-summer tyres

Of course, winter tyres are made of different compounds and operate at much lower temperature. So, to rectify this,most tyre makers now include silica in their compounds. Thus enabling the winter tyres to operate at much lower temperatures. So retaining their suppleness in adverse conditions.

Consequently, even the Best Summer Tyres become hard like plastic, making the tyres loose their elasticity and therefore grip. Therefore, some tyre makers such as Toyo of Japan have tried adding grit to their compounds. Helping to create safer Snow Tyres.

Winter tyres have also different tread patterns these are usually more of a block pattern. Including, larger centre groves to dissipate the water and slush. On the positive side, the blocks give you more surface. Of course, they do not clog up with snow, due to the spaces between the blocks.

Most importantly, winter tyres also have many tiny slits known as sipes. Sipes also help to dissipate the slush and water that can clog up your tyres.Difference between winter tyres-summer tyres

Winter tyres have now become much more sophisticated .

Companies like Vredestein and Nokian produce some of the Best Cheap Winter Car Tyres a Dutch tyre company now owned by Apollo tyres from India, have made winter tyres to a very high standard . This was necessary to comply with other European countries that witnessed snow every winter and the need for say a German motorist to be able to drive his BMW at great speed down the Autobahn to go skiing in Austria or Switzerland on the same tyre.

Difference between winter tyres-summer tyres Winter Tyres  technology advanced in leaps and bounds.

Silica was added to able the rubber compounds to become much more flexible at lower temperatures. This advance is now used by most of the leading tyre companies.  This combined with computer enhanced tread design has enabled manufacturers to produce a winter tyre. The tyres are now silent on motorways yet very effective in heavy rain, snow and ice. Snow tyres, in my opinion are one of the greatest advances for the motorist of our time. They are a great contribution to road safety. All vehicle owners should consider buying them. This is especially when buying them at the right time. This is  before the price doubles again or indeed before supplies run out. Winter tyres are available online at www.pellonautocentre.com at internet prices.

Tyre Labels Regulations- Drivers are now taking more Notice of Them

Tyre Labels Regulations

Tyre Labels Regulations; New European tyre labels yet another cost to business forced onto us by Brussels

As if wasn’t enough David Cameron was telling all of us small businesses that he was going to “cut red tape”, he has imposed a new EU law onto us called a standardised consumer label so

Tyre Labels Regulations

Tyre Labels Regulations; consumersThis Michelin car tyre has a highly rated B and B ratio users. That can choose for themselves which product is for their car. “I don’t think so”. Most of my customers here at Pellon tyres in Halifax. Come to us because they trust us. How could you trust a Tyre Labels Regulations on a tyre made in China?. I suspect not. As an update, we are finding that to my surprise.

Hence, our customers are taking some notice of what the new labels are telling them. Tyre manufacturers are also trying to improve their products. Even some Cheap Car Tyre makers are bringing out products with better standards. Thus, according to the labels. In general, though it is the big tyre manufacturers that are winning. Customers look up the ratings before they buy a tyre.Therefore, it is the big boys. Such as Michelin and Continental that are having the most success.

Tyre Labels Regulations

Tyre Labels Regulations; new label (easy)

The new system is supposed to be in place for November this year(2012). As a result is intended to help the motorist to choose a rating. Naturally, that has got low emissions and dare I say it better road safety. The same Europe that allows people to sell possible killers. As a result, called “Part worn tyres”, these don’t even have to have Tyre Labels Regulations. Surprise surprise !!!.

WE will now have to have an efficiency label on tyres that display three main points, Rolling resistance, Wet grip and Fuel efficiency. The new tyre label will value from A-G, but not D.I will try to explain what each group means.

 What the new Tyre Labels Regulations means (hope you can take it in)

 ROLLING RESISTANCE

This covers A to G Dis not used, rolling resistance of the tyre and contributes most to fuel efficiency and therefore reduces CO2 emissions and also driving costs. Each letter has a difference plus or minus of 0.42 to 0.56 miles per gallon(mpg) for a car that will do 36 mpg. (I hope you are still paying attention)

WET GRIP

“Wet grip is what it says on the tin” how good is the car at stopping in wet driving conditions and is expressed as the “stopping distance”. The letters used for this are A to G not using D or G, (are you still awake), the stopping distance between 3 and 7 feet when you brake hard at 50 mph. We have had this measured on our forecourt now for five years and no one has ever tried it out yet.

NOISE

The noise that the tyre makes,(nothing to do with our lousy road surfaces its the tyres fault) and is measured in decibels. The more black bars on your Tyre Labels Regulations, the noisier the tyre tread is.

In my opinion, this is more red tape from Brussels, and I will stress that the customer should take advice from his local dealer.

As an update to the tyre label introduction, i must say that I am pleasantly surprised to see that the motoring public is now showing lots of interest in these names and they are influencing the purchasing decisions of the tyre buying public, I hold my hands up, and I was WRONG?

Winter Tyres Safety Benefits

Nokian Northern Winter Tyres-Nokian Tyres’ 120th Anniversary – FleetPointFleetPoint

Nokian Northern Winter Tyres

Nokian Northern Winter Tyres

Nokian Northern Winter Tyres

Of course Nokian are one of the world leaders in tyres. Especially winter tyres. So, manufacturing an excellent range of tyre products. In my opinion though, their winter tyres are second to none. offering different types of tyres for climates with different winter conditions.

For instance, here in Halifax in Northern England we have a mixed winter climate. So, in many winters we do have snowy conditions and certainly icy roads. Therefore it would be prudent to fit at least all-weather tyres for winter driving. However, I do believe that because of the the hilly terrain. Then full blown winter tyres are the answer for complete safety.

Nokian winter tyres fit the safety standards criteria

Dont get me wrong ? most tyre manufacturers make a very good winter tyre product. Fortunately for us, we are able to source almost any make of tyre within the same day. Up to the present time, Nokian have had a pricing structure on the expensive side. however, in recent years the famous tyre brand has become more and more competitive.

This brings the award winning tyres in line with other tyre manufacturers. So, making Nokian more competitive and easier obtainable. Sooner or later a better distribution system had to become a priority for the Finnish tyre company. After all they do claim to be the first tyre company to bring out a winter tyre. Specially for countries that have snow fall. Including us here in the UK.

So, a new distributor system was rolled out. Nokian offered this to Point-S members across the UK . Including here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK. As a result, we now keep a reasonable stock of popular winter tyre and all-season tyres stock of popular sizes. All things considered , we can also get a next day delivery of the massive diversity of other tyre sizes. of course from Nokians warehouse in Scotland UK.

Brake Servicing Halifax UK-A Look into How Important It Is To You and Your Car.

Brake Servicing Halifax UK

Brake Servicing Halifax UK-We all should a regular brakes service carried out on our cars

"<yoastmark

Along with tyres, the most important thing to look after on your cars are the brakes. We should all have our brakes checked at regular intervals, either on the cars routine service schedule or a stand alone Brake Servicing Halifax UK.

Most motorists though ignore my advice and do not know that they have a problem with their brakes until they hear the dreaded grinding of metal to metal as their pads wear out and touch the metal brake discs, making the all too familiar horrible grinding noise.

One of the other problems that the motorist has is that your brakes wear out very gradually. I am talking in particular about things like brake hoses and brake cylinder rubbers. Both these items are made of a rubber based material and eventually they will be eaten away by the brake fluid. This eating away would notice by our mechanics on a routine service as the leaking of the fluid is readily detectable.

Brake Servicing Halifax UK

If the brakes including the metal pipes. Therefore, that carry the brake fluid round. Thus, are not checked out. Therefore, there is a possibility that they may leak causing brake failure. Luckily for us in the UK. We have a MOT test on an annual basis. As expected, the test does pick up many faults.

But it is a sagacious person that have their Brake Servicing Halifax UK at regular intervals. Motorists were particularly wise if they have a Disc Brakes service carried out after Winter time. Winter is the time that you will use the brakes twice as much as in Summertime, because of motoring on ice and snow. Another reason to have a brakes service is if you live in a hilly or mountainous area, apparently you will be using the brakes much more when going down steep inclines and taking sharp bends, probably using the Car Brakes twice as much as on regular flat roads such as in Norfolk.

We only use quality Unipart replacement part on our brakes servicing

Brake pads usually need changing when there is about 25% of the Car Brake Pads left on, and callipers have a system of measurements to determine how thin they are and whether or not they may need changing

We here at Pellonautocentre offer a free brake check or can carry out a brake service for £29.90. If any brake work is required, we can provide our customers with a courtesy car, or give them a lift and back.

We only use Unipart quality parts with a warranty that covers all the mainland UK.

Bridgestone Air Free Tyres-Excellent for Puncture free Plant Hire vehicles.

Tokyo Motorshow unveils the new Bridgestone Air Free Tyres

Bridgestone Air Free Tyres-A brand new concept. Has appeared at the Toyota Motor  Show, Thus, a brand new tyre that does not need any air the Airless Tyre . The new tyre is made of totally different materials.Especially, to the  conventional tyres made of rubber compounds.

Bridgestone Air Free Tyres

Bridgestone Air Free Tyres-new Bridgestone concept tyre and wheel in one

For this reason, they are  made up of Thermo- plastic resins.Hence, this material is very flexible with great durability and is 100% recyclable.

The tyre (if we should call it that) will be free of punctures.Naturally, the run flat concept could be a thing of the past .

Although at this stage I am not sure. Therefore, to the extent that this product has been tested. My own theory. Is that it will be used for tripping around towns on little “green” energy saving cars. Michelin has also developed a similar concept tyres. Thus, called the Tweel as shown in the image.

Bridgestone tyres claim that the new resin that makes the tyres can be melted down and made into new tyres, therefore making the new product much less wasteful than the standard rubber tyres . Another great advantage is that the vehicle that has the tyres fitted will not have to carry a spare, the design means that the tyre can not be punctured,

another great feature by Bridgestone tyres.

Bridgestone tyres are a great innovative tyre company and I admire their attempts to make a better World.  Eric Roberts.

I think that this new design fits well into the need for change that allows this product to fit into a greener and environmental friendly World, but I don’t think it will be the end all of all our problems produced by the rubber tyre, but it is a good start, it will also put people out of work in the service industry, but we will have a cleaner Planet.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems- TPMS systems will be fitted to most makes of cars in the future.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems

Tyre pressure monitoring systems will be the “Norm” for all cars

Electric Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems are fitted to many car models now. They warn the car driver when a tyre is deflating or flat.Thus, through a warning light on the cars dashboard. Check this link for further informationhttp://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Shoppers/Tires/Tires+Rating/TPMS

Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems

Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems; typical TPMS display

 

These devices are excellent and  save you money in the long run. The system ensures the driver that the tyres are correctly inflated . Thus, then you will find that they will wear much better.Therefore, many cars on our roads are driving about with ones that are very much under pressure, this causes them to wear badly and the car not to handle correctly in cornering and braking.

Also, a partly pressurised tyre is more subset able to picking up a nail or other object and causing a puncture or even a blow-out. On the other hand, yours may be over inflated causing the vehicle to roll about when travelling and also creating premature tyre wear due to the over inflation. Picked up with a Wireless Tyre Pressure Monitoring System fitted to your car.

Correctly inflated tyres.Hence, will also save you costs on your fuel bill. Thus, called “rolling resistance”. Because when your wheels are correct. Then you can save as much as 25% on your fuel bills. So any gadget such as a Tyre Pressure Monitors a tyre monitoring device is well worth it.

Tyre pressure monitoring systems can save your life

To sum this up. The system also ensures that you get better mileage out of your tyres and the vehicle uses less fuel and is, therefore, more economical to run.

This car was originally owned by a family of mill owners.Hence, from the Halifax area of West Yorkshire. The car was bought for the Lady of the house.For this reason, was restored by a West Yorkshire restoration company.Run by the owner and his son John Horsfield http://www.horsfieldsofhalifax.co.uk/projects.htm.

The “LANCHESTER” was designed by Mr George Lanchester. Who created an upmarket version of the” BSA ten” from around 1933. They also developed a model of car known as theRoadrider”. Before the beginning of the second World War. Lanchester was later bought out by “BSA”. Hence, the owners of Daimler and the Lanchesters were made to take second place to the new Daimler models. Sadly in 1956. Because the last model of the Lanchester known as the sprite was phased out.

DUNLOP VINTAGE TYRES

The original holding company were facing financial difficulties.The bank called in the companies overdraft.Thus, calling for an immediate seizure of the companies assets. Lanchester cars were then produced at the BSA factory in Sparkbrook a (suburb of Birmingham), and because of this deal was struck to sell the Lanchester business to “BSA”. A deal was made in 1931 and Lanchester cars were bought out by BSA for £26,000 a significant amount of money in those days.
