Michelin Sports Tyres; New pilot sports three tyres will become another winner from Michelin tyres

As a Michelin Sports Tyres dealer. Hence, for the past 40 years. Therefore, I have always admired the tyre products that Michelin tyres have produced. Michelin Sports Tyres have in my opinion been at the forefront. Thus, of car tyre technology and tyre innovation.

As the tyre buying public will know. Michelin tyres have never been famous for selling cheap car tyres. In fact, they are often the most expensive. But in my opinion. For this reason, you have to pay for a top quality product.  Michelin tyres are a top product.

If its cheap tyres that you are after. Thus, you won’t get Michelin tyres. So, when it comes to cheap car tyres. Then you will be looking at other brands. Hence, not Michelin.

Michelin Sports Tyres. hence, have devoted hours of time and money in their commitment to the motor sport. Hence, and they have used all their knowledge in making better and better car tyres. Michelin tyres have always been the company to follow by their competitors; this is why they have maintained the higher price range compared to the other top tyre manufacturers.

 New pilot 3 Michelin Sports Tyres no exception

the new pilot sport 3 tyre

This latest tyre from Michelin is no exception. The all new pilot 3 comes with a new “anti-surf system”, this gives optimum tyre grip in all wet conditions including deep standing water, the type of conditions that you may get when heavy rain has flooded the road due to a blocked drain. The pilot 3 just cuts straight through without any deviation in the driving, as you know when this happens the car tends to pull towards the kerb, but not the new Michelin sport3.

This new tyre also comes a new rubber compound which gives fuel savings and higher mileage keeping its excellent wet grip capabilities, as stated above. Michelin Sports Tyres are committed to lowering the CO2 emissions as low as possible on all its tyre products and this will be shown by putting the “GREEN X” marking on the sports 3 tyres. This emblem will prove that Michelin Sports Tyres are aiming to cut fuel consumption on its newest tyre products including the new Sports 3 tyre.

 

 

About Eric Roberts

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the
Garage and tyre industry now for 40 years.

 

Pirelli Cinturato Radial Tyres-“Born”from Lancia Cars

Pirelli radial tyres were born from the need of Lancia Rally division. Hence, who wanted a stronger lower riding radial tyre for their “Lancia Stratos” rally car. Accordingly, this leads the designers to create a much more durable tyre construction. As a result, both wider and with a much lower side wall. Hence, this Pirelli Cinturato design became very successful. Of course, giving a significant boost toLancia racing”. Indeed Porsche also started to use the Pirelli Cinturato tyre in its racing division.

The new Pirelli design leads to the creation of the Pirelli Cinturato. This tyre was created in the 1950s.Therefore, and was originally made from a textile belted construction. This tyre gave great comfort and road holding qualities but as for all textile construction tyres was a little low on mileage and could not compete with some of its rivals namely Michelin who were streets ahead with their steel belted X range of tyres.

Eric Roberts remembers fitting these Pirelli Cinturato tyres in the 1960 s. Eric, was a tyre fitter in Dewsbury. These tyres were mounted on Lancias and for some strange reason were fitted to some MGBs.

The earlier Pirelli Cinturato were used as original equipment on most Italian-made production cars such as the Alfas;

Eric remembers the first time he saw these tyres. They were very unusual at the time.Hence, but things were changing fast in the world of tyres. and we were not that surprised at what came along next”. Thus, the most common size been the 165×14. Pirelli now competes on the World stage with the steel belted radial fitted to modern cars.
