Many motorists decide that they would like to fit Continental tyres on to their vehicles. These tyres are a popular choice for those people who live in the wetter areas of the UK. This is because this is just one of the many good points that we bestow on the brand of tyre made by Continental  fitted to their vehicles as it has been proven to perform well in these weather conditions.

A large number of accidents that have resulted in personal injury. So, have  that happens when roads  are very wet and slippery. You’ll also find that road accidents are twice as likely to happen. Of course, on the wet road too . Including another important factor ! not to forget is that most of these vehicles will be running on bald tyres.

Because of these accidents. Drivers, tend to go for tyres that will keep them as safe as possible. Especially, during the bad weather. So, helping them to minimise the risk of being involved in an accident. It’s so important to make sure that you’re taking extra care. Especially, when driving in bad conditions Finding, that many people on the roads are driving. Consequently, without the correct tyres fitted to their vehicle.

Most people tend to think that the reason why driving in wet conditions

So, causes accidents. Because of the spray and through loss of visibility. Of course, the main danger is the risk of aquaplaning (Continental tyres are a great wet weather tyre). The cause for aquaplaning is a lair of water that forms between the tyre and the road and is then and this reduces your tyre’s grip and means that contact is lost with the road, the car could then go out of control causing an accident.

The way that Continental Tyres  have been designed. Of course, makes sure that they  perform to their best ability. Most importantly, when the weather outside is very wet. Tyres works is to disperse as much water away from the road as possible . So,  by using centre drainage channels and having many water dispersing “sipes” therefore they will successful increase the grip on the wet road. You’ll find that aquaplaning with this brand  is at its minimal and dramatically decreased.

It still worth remembering though that your Continental Tyres must be in good condition with a good tread area, a bald tyre whatever the make will be dangerous on all road conditions.

Do not forget that the UK is traditionally a very wet country and also treats road safety as very important and although Continentals  are an excellent brand any new tyre will be a thousand times better in all driving conditions than a “bald” tyre. It is most important at all times of the year to have your tyres checked at regular intervals and always invest in a good make of tyres such as Continental tyres.

4×4 Tyres-Which are the right ones for you ? Consider the excellent General 4×4 Range

 Customers are still not sure which 4×4 tyres to choose

4x4 Tyres

This article is a follow up from one that I did a few years ago. One of the problems that we have at Pellon tyres, comes from the owners of 4×4 vehicles who are not sure which or what tyres to fit to their vehicles.

In our area of Halifax in the Pennine foothills, we have several types of different terrains to cope with. Choosing the right tyre can be difficult.

Every tyre a manufacturer makes is designed with specific strengths in mind. How well it performs to these strengths depends on the construction methods, materials used and the technologies applied in the design and testing process. 4×4 tyres by definition introduce even more variables than these into the mixing pot. For our area we recommend a 50/50 or a 40/60 tread ratio between a normal type summer tyre and a rugged off road tyre. To make it a little easier to select the right one, a good place to start is to think about what you intend to use your 4×4 for. Many people used to say the Land rover as just a status car, where others such as farmers need Land-rovers for more practical uses, so a different tyre application is needed.

If you are intending to use your vehicle off road then you need to determine just how extreme the terrain is likely to be and how much time you are likely to spend on it. Farmers would be doing far more off road work and therefore would require a much heavier tread pattern on the tyres.

Off Road Grading Index for 4×4 tyres selection

To help our customers we use a very good visual guide called an (off road Grading Index) or ORGI for short, and then grade all the 4×4 tyres accordingly on our stock compute so that we can tell customers exactly which tyre is the best for them. The ORGI guide assigns every 4X4 Off Road tyres we feature with an off-road competency rating between 1 & 10. From here it is possible to disregard certain tyres as unsuitable and narrow the field of selection down. It works of an easy to understand scale from 1 to 10 depending on how tough you want your tyre to be, an excellent grading system. I hope this will be of help to all my customers who own 4×4 and SUV vehicles and want General 4×4 tyres.

Bald Car Tyres- Bald tyres are lethal and also dangerous to ALL road users.

Bald Car Tyres

Bald Car Tyres can be killers

So, Pellon tyres in Halifax West Yorkshire. Incredibly, so have never seen so many bad tyres. Removed from customers wheels. Hence, in 40 years of trading as a tyre business. These bald tyres are a danger. Hence, to all other road users. Of course, and the people who drive about with them on. Car tyre prices have escalated threefold. In the past two years. Consequently, due to the cost increase in the raw materials. Hence, that go on to making tyres. Also, cheap tyres are flooding the European tyre dealers. So, causing a battle for cheap car tyres. Therefore, between all the tyre manufacturers, This is helping to stabilise the price increases. But only very slowly.

We have all had to cut back in these difficult times, but to cut back on buying car tyres will put the vehicle owner and other motorists in great danger. Everybody should change their tyres before they become bald tyres. There is nothing worse. Then coming across a heavy shower, after a beautiful sunny day. Hence, a car with bald tyres. Will start to skid on the wet surface. Thus, and could cause an accident through aquaplaning. For this reason, this is when the tyre is separated. Thus, From the road surface on a wet road, sometimes due to a bald tyre on a wet road, this causes the tyre to lose grip and then the loss of the cars steering causing an accident tom happen.

Bald Car Tyres

When your bald tyres are separated from the road surface by a thin layer of water. So, your tyre does not grip because of the absence of tread on the tyre and the car can go in any direction when the brakes are applied, according to R.O.S.P.A this is the cause of many motorway crashes.

Also, you may have seen F1 cars during a race, in dry weather the racing cars are fitted with bald tyres (called slicks), but when the weather turns wet, the cars are changed to tyres that have a tread pattern. This is the same for an average car; it is highly dangerous to drive on “bald” tyres and also illegal.

 Use your sense and buy new tyres, even cheap tyres are better than having “bald tyres.”

A large section of the public car drivers do obey the law when it comes to replacing their tyres, we have been very busy since last November, and it is not all the people that run about on bald tyres, far from it. Many of our customers are looking for, car tyre prices, only to find that we can compete with our top internet competitors.   

Insurance !

Importantly, it is wise to know that bald tyres invalidate insurance. Also if you are stopped by police for bald tyres you will eventually be fined and be penalized with three point s per bald tyre. Incredibly, this could mean 12 points for all 4 bald tyres (should you have any).

Nokian Winter Tyres Winners

This winter is becoming one of the best years for our customers buying their first set of winter tyres.(Nokian Winter Tyres Winners)

It is probably due to the fact that we have had a run of cold snowy winters. Over the past three or four years and the need for winter tyres are slowly sinking in. We also have a large Polish community in the Halifax area. Of course this is where where my tyre-centre is situated. Polish people are familiar with the need for winter tyres. In fact I think it may now be compulsory in Poland to fit winter tyres from November to march. Hence, the same as some other European countries.

Which winter tyres ?

We have found over the years that as an independent tyre retailer, most customers think in two ways. Either they know exactly what they want, or they will take our recommendations. Of course, as to which brand and at what price to pay for their tyres.

The majority of our customers come to us on word of mouth recommendations. Because they have received good advice and service in the past. Subsequently, we know this because we do not advertise as such. Perhaps, only through social media sites and internet directories.

In the past when our profit margins were higher we would regularly take out full page ads in the local papers, costing us an arm and a leg, we never really knew if the ads paid off or not.

We have and still do sell many different brands of tyres including winter tyres. In the past two years we have been able to buy our tyres from the major tyre companies because we are a member of a buying group known as Micheldever tyres.

Nokian Winter Tyres Winners

We were very happy to open an account with Nokian Winter Tyres . Because we knew from experience that this company made excellent tyres, including winter tyres. This will be our third year selling Nokian Winter Tyres Winners and we are pleased with the very good response we had from the drivers who have experienced these tyres in winter conditions. The Halifax area is very hilly, we are in the foothills of the Pennine mountain range and therefore we have very tricky roads. Especially in winter snowy conditions.

The latest car to arrive for a set of four Nokian Winter Tyres was a Land Rover-Freelander 2-GS-TD4. This nice looking car had a set of four 235/65R17 108H  Winter tyres. It’s great when you love the job that you are doing and can write about it in our company blog.

Dunlop Tyres-One the founder and therefore earliest tyre companies and still a great tyre company.

Dunlop Tyres

It was back in 1888 in Scotland. Thus, when the pneumatic tyres were invented by John Boyd Dunlop. Yet, another great British invention. He was working on his son’s bicycle at the time. Hence, he came up an inflated rubber tube filled with air. Of course, it was fitted around a metal rim for comfort. Hence, the rubber tyre was born. This invention paved the way for the future of the great company we now know as Dunlop tyres.

In 1985 Dunlop were bought by BTR plc and later a Japanese company Sumitomo were given the rights to make tyres under the Dunlop tyres road brand, it then started producing tyres in its UK subsidiary under the Dunlop Tyres Ltd name.

In 1999, the Sumitomo group began talks with Goodyear tyres and Goodyear bought a 75% stake in the company. Sumitomo carried on making Dunlop products in Japan and Goodyear made Dunlop in North America.

Motorsport tyre introduced

In 2006, The new tyre company stopped making tyres here in the UK. Motorsport tyres are still produced out of their Birmingham UK factory, turning out about 300,000 specialist tyres a year.

The old factory can still be seen from the M6 motorway as you travel through Birmingham but it is a shadow of its former self, joining in with the rest of the decline of British manufacturing in the UK, very sad, I have had many visits to the old tyre factory in its former glory days but now the tyre products are produced in China, Poland and Slovenia, not a British product anymore.

 Goodyear Dunlop tyres also own two smaller tyre companies,

 Fulda and Sava both brands that we used to sell in past and are good quality tyres. Goodyear tyres now operate from offices in Luxembourg and Brussels, who report to the main head office which is still in Akron USA.
