Like every other year then Winter comes around again. Here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax it is also a very exciting year. Because it is winter tyre season again. As a result, drivers still ask us about the need for winter tyres. Our answers are always the same.

These tyres are specially made to cope with all aspects of winter weather. Hence, from heavy rain or frosts to the possibility of a big snow storm. So we never really know what the weather can throw at us.

This winter has started out to be a cold one and already drivers are fitting their winter tyres in preparation for what may come our way. Thus the keyword is safety. With winter tyres fitted to your car then you will be ready for anything that winter throws at you. All our customers who fit winter tyres thank and praise us for our recommendations.

Winter Tyres Important-Whats the difference?

Winter tyres generally have deeper tread. Of course, with specifically designed patterns. Allowing snow and slush to be cleared as the car drives through the bad weather. Winters are made with a specific rubber compound that includes a silica compound. Hence, that stays softer and more flexible in the cold weather. As a result, that provides more contact to the road surface and thus more control.

Subsequently, winter tyres are absolutely essential for winter driving safety. If you are lucky enough to be going to the local mountains to ski. In fact some countries snow tyres are often mandatory. Consequently, winters have to be fitted from March to November.

This advice is also applicable to rental cars. Consider renting one with snow tyres in any mountain area. Including vans. Sometimes it will cost a little extra, but it is well worth paying.

When getting out of the city in any higher elevation it is likely you will encounter winter conditions and therefore will require snow tires to get you to where you have to go safely.

Winter Tyres Important-Especially for SUV and all-terrain vehicles

Our terrain here in Halifax is very hilly and rugged in places. Thus many of our customers do fit winter tyres. Especially, with the rise of the SUV vehicle. SUV’s are notoriously bad at gripping in bad weather conditions. As a result, these SUV tyres are the most popular tyres that we fit.

Before the start of the winter. So, you should consider a set of winter tyres. As a result, the best way to keep your vehicle moving and safe. Of course, on the roads during bad weather times. Especially in areas where it is difficult to get around in a vehicle fitted with regular summer tyres. Hence, once you leave the city into open country or a hilly area. Then your need for winter tyres will increase.

Here at pellon Tyres we recommend the award winning Nokian tyres.

Yokohama car Tyres

Yokohama car Tyres are probably one of the most forward thinking tyre companies in the World. One of the ways that the company will show of its prowess will be to exhibit through a stand at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Yokohama Advan F4 racing tyres

 

The company will demonstrate to car drivers. On how it strives to create a better tyre grip. So, on all its tyre products and all its tyre categories. Yokohama Japan have also been striving and succeeding in the development of lighter fuel efficient tyres. Subsequently, by the use of new compounds combined with new materials. Such as the addition of “orange oil”. Yes Yokohama car Tyresorange oil! Yokohama car Tyres has been using this as an alternative to petroleum based oils for over 20 years. The first Yokohama UK tyres to use this were in a compound used for racing car tyre slicks (these are tyres that have no tread, for use on dry race circuits to give more grip and for a softer compound), the orange oil helps the tyre to become sticky when they get heated up to give more traction.

Yokohama car Tyres is also developing a new tyre that will grip on ice, without the help of studs, very useful in the very cold countries that normally have to rely on studded tyres. The booth will be well worth visiting and will include a concept car that is an electric car, to show off some of the new technologies, including its own super light tyres known as “fin tyres” that reduce air drag and help control the cars air drag by reducing it.

Bridgestone Blizzak Winter Tyres- A good Winter Tyres choice to fit most car models

Bridgestone Blizzak Winter Tyres

These are great tyres the Bridgestone Blizzak winter tyres

Bridgestone Blizzak

Bridgestone Blizzak winter for run flats

I must admit that out of all the leading makes of tyres that are developed for winter use, then Bridgestone are not amongst them. I am not sure why this is, because Bridgestone are by sales volume, the largest tyre company in the world. However, we do not see that, in the volume of their Bridgestone Blizzak tyre sales, at least not here in Yorkshire UK.

Ever since I became a manager for one of the large tyre retailers. Here in the UK, I have made an effort. So, to inform my customers about the safety features of this product. I really mean that from the bottom of my heart. Subsequently, it is not just to sell them something. To me it is the safety issues. When a customer comes in to buy summers  in say November. So, then I will make a huge effort to try selling the customer onto winters .

I will try to convince them to fit their winters. Hence, for the whole winter period. Most drivers still do not know. Of course,when the temperature drops to below 7*C. That the tyres rubber compound will become harder and much less flexible, than the winter tyres, primarily because modern winter season tyres have special chemicals added to the compound, including “silica”.

Bridgestone Blizzak Winter Tyres

Less flexible side walls make the summer ones  much stiffer and this makes your car harder to handle in cold weather steering and cornering, as well as braking can become very difficult. Winters  retain their flexibility in the cold climate and also give the driver more confidence, when they realise that the car handles much better in the snow and ice.

Bridgestone Blizzak winter tyres come into this bracket.

Bridgestone Blizzak will perform in all the bad weather that is thrown at you. They are specially engineered with deeper tread depth and a unique tread pattern to cope with the snow and ice. When Bridgestone blizzac winter, come across any snow, slush and ice, they have a  Multi-Cell compound that removes a thin layer water from the treads surface which improves the  grip using millions of microscopic pores.

This special compound also allows the tyre to stay flexible in icy and freezing temperatures. Making sure that the car sticks to the road. Also there are a large number of sipes in the Bridgestone Blizzak tread which is also another property of the tyre to retain the grip in winter conditions. of our snow tyres improves traction in the wet, snow, and ice by increasing the number of biting edges.

Bridgestone Blizzak Winter Tyres

 This is the time of year, just before winter bites to think about a new set of winters for your car. One of the tyre products that comes highly recommended is the  Bridgestone Blizzak WS70. I must admit that it was not familiar with me until I have read some good revues about the winters in some of the  press and skiing blogs.

The manufacturer, claim that new technology has gone into their  compound, that includes silica and an enhanced system of microscopic tubes and cells that are covering the normal tread compound which helps the tyre to grip better, even when the tyre wears down . These so called “Nano-tubes”, help the tyre grip into the ice and snow, making this tyre very efficient in all kinds of winter driving conditions.

I am pleased to say that the Bridgestone Blizzak has become very popular in the UK this winter and we at Pellon tyres have experienced an increase in the new tyres sale

Winter will soon be here, check out I am pleased to say that the Bridgestone Blizzak has become very popular in the UK this winter and we at Pellon tyres have experienced an increase in the new tyres sale

 

 Bridgestone Blizzac sales increase here in the UK.

I am pleased to say that the Bridgestone Blizzak has become very popular in the UK. Therefore, this winter we at Pellon tyres have experienced an increase in the new winter tyres sales. Bridge-stone are the World leader.So, we at Pellon are very proud to be a  stockists in Halifax the UK.

For a further review…

“The Bridgestone Blizzak line of winter tires has a long-established and well-deserved reputation for reliability and grip in all winter conditions, and the WS70 is no exception. The successor to the highly regarded Bridgestone Blizzak WS60, the WS70 is clearly an improvement. Although opinions vary somewhat as to its exact placement, the Blizzac WS70 definitely earns a place among the top tier of tires, although the dry-road performance does leave something to be desired”… http://tires.about.com/od/Tire_Reviews/fr/Review-Bridgestone-Blizzak-Ws-70.htm

SUV Safety Winter Tyres are a must for SUV cars

Winter tyres on this Porsche SUV in the Halifax Fitting station Yorkshire UK

When you been in the tyre trade as long as I have. Then we often get offered opportunities to help test new tyres. Hence, from the different tyre manufacturers. You may wonder what this has to do with SUV winter tyres. But a couple of years ago I was offered a chance to test drive some SUV vehicle. Thus, fitted with Vredestein SUV Winter Tyres. So to prove how different this type of car performed on winter tyres.

The cars included many different models. Including the new Range Rover the new Porsche Cayenne and the BMW MX and Mercedes ML models. We were all flown to Austria and headed for the mountains.

SUV Tyres-Fear in my eyes

All the cars were fitted with the excellent Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme tyres. Which were designed by the great car designer Giugiari. of course, the cars were driven by professional test drivers (and boy did I know it). I was in the passenger seat and another couple of guys were in the back.

We climbed upwards until we reached the snow line. The drivers then let loose, they were that confident with the snow tyres fitted that they drove these SUVs like mad men. We were driven on ice and snow through forested areas and up and down steep ravines at high speed . I had never been as frightened in my life, my eyes were popping out with fear. I was ever so glad when the tyre tests were finished, but it proved to how good these cars were with SUV Winter Tyres fitted.

Most of these cars come fitted with summer tyres when new so it is well worth investing in a set of SUV Winter Tyres to give you full driver confidence when the Apollo suv Winter Tyreswinter weather comes along, as many drivers of these vehicles found to their cost when they got stuck in snow and ice in the last few winters.

Apollo winter tyres make excellent  Winter Tyres.

One of the top tyre manufacturers to make excellent SUV Winter Tyres for the SUVs are Apollo. They are world renowned at making great tyres for winter. The tyres are now made at the famous Vredestein winter tyre factory in Holland.

It is a modern SUV Winter Tyres with great steering precision, low noise production and low rolling resistance. The Wintrac Nextreme has been designed in close collaboration with Giugiaro Design. The innovative tread design, in which the tread is integrated into the sidewall design, gives the tyre a unique look. In addition, the tyre guarantees excellent performance even in the most extreme situations.

Runflat Tyres Safer

Type of Tyres- a Woman’s Guide to help increase tyre knowledge for safer driving

Type of Tyres

A Women’s guide about tyres and helpful tips

Not all Type of Tyres are created equal. Yes they are all round- at least they should be if they are in good condition. But there are a variety of Type of Tyres for a variety of uses, situations and road conditions. So before you buy just any tyre, buckle up and listen up and learn a little more  about tyres for your car and safety.

 Type of Tyres

This X section of a tyre helps people to understand how they are constructed(i think)

Summer  Tyres

These are the standard type of tyres that are supplied on most vehicles when we purchase them. They are all Type of Tyres that can handle well in both average wet and dry conditions. The water channels that you see in the tread area of the tyres allow for normal traction (meaning they grip the road in normal summer weather) during rainy weather they can cope with average type rain fall and the spray that is associated with this.They are the average Type of Tyres for normal weather conditions. This type of  tyres will be on the car when you buy a new one.

All Terrain and Off Road Type of Tyres

If you’re a woman who likes to use her vehicle for off road driving regularly. These would be the tyre for you. These are usually fitted onto mostly SUVs and light trucks. Of course, such as Land Rovers. About tyres explains the fact that sidewalls of these types of tyres are stronger than the summer tyres. Featuring large tread block patterns that deflects mud and slush from the contact patch. Improving grip on loose sand or gravel. Hence, when you go on your off road excursions. The best type of scenario for these type of tyres, would be one that the farmers wife may use.

 Type of Tyres

This is what can happen when you dont inflate your tyres at regular intervals. The tyre has deflated and the tyre is completely damaged.

Winter Tyres

If you are in an area with chilly climes with snow and ice and low temperatures. So, winter tyres would be your best friend. These will ensure more traction on snow and ice. The main difference between all season tyres and winter tyres is in the type of rubber that is used. Winter tyres would need to grip the ground more to keep the vehicle in control so the rubber that is used is mixed with silica. These type of tyres keep flexible at low temperatures enabling the tyre tread to grip in the cold conditions and are used during winter conditions. Type of Tyres

So when should I change my tyres?

There are several things to note that would indicate that it is time to replace your tyres. Here are the most easily observed ones:

  Tyre tread- The pattern that you see on your wheels is called the tread. Its primary function is to divert water from beneath the tyre to improve traction and maintain smooth handling. If your tyre tread has been worn down to 1.6 mm or less, it can no longer perform this function effectively and this could cause the car to skid on wet surfaces and cause hydroplaning, where your  car loses and control and can cause a crash. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you change your tires at a tread depth of 3 mm.

             Tread wear- Observe how the wear on your Type of Tyres look. The pattern of the tread wears can also indicate other problems which may have caused them such as under inflation, which can cause wear on the outer edges of the tread and leave the central tread area less worn.

While knowing when to replace a tyre is good stock knowledge to have at your disposal, the best authority to determine whether your tyres need replacing would be an expert tyre dealer. A dealer who would have the experience of the use of a variety of tyres across a variety of brands on a variety of car models. Point-S happens to be the leading independent tyre dealing network. They can assess your requirements and give you product neutral advice in order to arrive at a careful and sound decision for your tyre choice. With over 160 independently owned centres in the UK, finding a Point-S centre near you should be a piece of cake.

Yokohama Winters are a proven Winter safety advantage from Pellon Tyre Shop Yorkshire UK

Tyres are arguably the most important part of your car. (Yokohama Winters)

Of course winter tyres fill a variety of roles in improving your cars performance. Most importantly making sure that the car can roll! Without strong, adequate tyres at the correct pressures . Naturally, you can run the risk of getting a blowout on the motorway. Importantly, not being able to control your car in extreme winter weather conditions. Your total fuel mileage is also lower with poor tyres. So, you want tyres that are strong, durable, and quiet. You also want them to last a long time. If you live in a northern or hilly snowy area, such as Halifax here in west Yorkshire ,you probably want even more specialized tyres that perform well in snowy or icy winter conditions. Yokohama Winters are one of the best in their class for such a job.Yokohama Winters

Now there is no overall “best tyre”. Some tyres enable fast driving. Others function better with wear and are more durable. However if you live in a cold northern city such as Halifax, Huddersfield, or Bradford, Yokohama Winters are your best bet.

Yokohama Winters 

are designed to give you complete control over your car and maximum traction in icy conditions. They use specialized technology and tread designs are designed to give you complete control over your car and maximum traction in icy conditions. They use specialized technology and tread designs to ensure that icy driving is no problem. Just driving slowly and carefully isn’t a valid option, especially if you live in a city that receives tons of ice and snow. You need the control, grip, and precision that winter tyres offer.

There are several false ideas that people have concerning winter tyres. First, many people believe you only need two winter tyres or that you don’t need winter tires at all. Regular summer tyres or even all-season tyres don’t offer the same level of control or safety as Yokohama Winters, especially in extreme conditions. Also, contrary to popular belief, you want to have four winter tyres. If your car uses a winter pair in the front, then a regular set of tyres in the back, then each end of your car will react differently. This can be extremely detrimental if you are sliding on ice or driving in extreme weather. Investing four Pirelli tyres is much safer for accelerating, braking, and handling car.

Traction control and ABS brakes offer only limited benefits to actually winter tyres.

Traction control does not change the traction of your tyres in any way, but rather controls the acceleration of your tyre. Winter tyres give the grip you need in winter conditions.

Yokohama Winters

Yokohama tyres are undoubtedly one of the leading tyre companies in the World to embark in research and development. They are continually investing in motorsport events to enable better designed products in their domestic regular tyre brands.

Similarly, while ABS brakes will only ensure that car tyres (wheels) will not lock up, they also don’t improve the actual tyres traction.

I hope you enjoyed this article about Yokohama Winters.

General Winter Tyres-A must for Scotland and Northern England this Coming Week January 2019

General Winter Tyres

General Winter Tyres;Scotland a Winter tyres Haven

It is not rocket science to know that the further North we go in the British Isles then the colder it gets. Winters  have become a second nature to people living in Scotland and this is the time of year that the Scots get ready for the Inclement weather that will be heading their way. I have visited this beautiful country in all the seasons of the year and you can guarantee that if you travel in late Autumn  through early spring, that you will encounter Snow.

Scotland has recently enjoyed very good snow falls in their mountain ranges, especially the one that I am most familiar with, the “Cairngorms” you must visit their web-site to appreciate the winter wonderland and the great skiing conditions that you can enjoy there.

General Winter Tyres

General Winter Tyres;Thick snow with winter tyres

Apart from all your skiing equipment, there is one thing you must not forget ? General Winter Tyres are a must to be fitted to your car, before setting off to Scotland or if you live in Scotland you must fit a set on your car. Even if you are visiting the lower mountain ranges of Scotland you are advised to buy a set of snows. You could be caught out at any time during the colder weather after the late Autumn frosts.

Winter tyres are now becoming a necessity for Northern England

Motorists living in Northern England are now starting to become familiar with the same climate problems that they experience in Scotland. Anyone can now get caught out in a snow storm during late Autumn and the whole of Winter.

Most of Northern England are in hilly districts including the Pennines and peaks of Derbyshire to the North Yorkshire moors and the mountains of the lake District. This means that motorists in these areas require better gripping on their cars. The minimum that car owners require is a good normal summer tread pattern, when what they really need is one with plenty of tread on the tyres, but this will be rendered useless when the snow gets here and unless you have General Winter Tyres fitted you will be stranded even in flat districts.

General Winter Tyres will last for about three winters

Of course, providing that in Spring you change back to your summer tyres. Naturally, this service is carried out by many local tyre companies such as Pellon Tyre Centre in Halifax West Yorkshire. Consequently, when you buy your winters  they will store them for you and re-fit the summer ones. Of course,when the threat of any more bad weather has receded. Nonetheless,the first time you need them fitting is done free of charge. Followed by a small charge for re-fitting the following spring.

Nevertheless, this has been a large success in the past three years. Moreover,we are looking forward to seen our repeat business in the years to come. Many of our past customers tell us about many stories when people were getting stuck in snow. While they were able to get out of trouble because they have chosen the correct product for their car.

APOLLO WINTER TYRES-Get to Work On Time by Fitting Them when the snow arrives in 2016

APOLLO WINTER TYRES

APOLLO WINTER TYRES; will impress your Boss

Although I am sitting here.Hence, writing this post in relatively good weather and the Sun is shining. Then it won’t be long before we get our first Winter blast of 2016.Many motorists will be panicking.Because they will be stuck in their driveways.As a result, their cars will not be able to get out of the snow.

APOLLO WINTER TYRES

APOLLO WINTER TYRES;This picture was taken in Yorkshire and reminds us what it could be like?

In the olden days.It would be easy to just phone the boss.In fact, and take a day off.Accordingly, or pretend to be sick.But now in these times of recession.When jobs are hard to come bye.Therefore, you need to get to work.Whatever the weather has to throw at us.

It is a fact now that we also start work at an earlier times.Hence, and have shorter lunch breaks.In fact, I personally go to work an hour earlier.Moreover, and take a ten minute break to eat my sandwich. This has come about because none of us want to miss any business.Thus, at all in these hard times.Also, this rubs off on our staff.In fact, they too want to get to work on time. These days do not want to take sick days.Because, of the pressure that we are all under.Hence, to keep our businesses running.Especially, in the car auto trade.To make sure that they’re not the ones that get stranded in any bad weather. Therefore late for work, or even worse miss work altogether.

APOLLO WINTER TYRES and Check out your car battery

The first thing to do.Indeed, before the winter arrives. Is to check out your car’s battery. Any good Car Batteries service centre.Will carryApollo winter tyres out a free battery test and alternator test . Most companies are run by trustworthy people.Therefore, if the battery is fine.Then they will tell you so.Subsequently, the whole test only takes about five minutes.So an appointment is usually not required.So that you can just pop in at lunchtime (if you have one)A free test will be carried out. This is more important than it used to be.Because a 12 Volt Battery (car battery) has much more electrics to contend with.Especially, on modern cars.Than the older cars.Such things as air-con ,electric windows, the on board electronic management systems.Thus, and many more things for the battery to cope with.

APOLLO WINTER TYRES

The second most important thing.Is to make sure that you have good  WINTER TYRES on the car. Braking distances (stopping distances) are far worse if your car is struggling with bald tyres. Even on rainy days in wet weather. In snowy conditions they are of no use at all. Yet motorists are driving around with bald tyres on their cars. a danger to us all.WINTER TYRES-For the best results 

Winter tyres are also a must for SUVs and larger cars

Over the past four years. We have fitted thousands of these winter tyres in Halifax alone.Therefore, the customers that have used them are now spreading the word.Hence, to their friends and neighbors.About the virtues of this great product. They are also available for the top end car market. Such as BMWs and Mercedes. Including the SUVs and people carriers, so invest in winter tyres for better safety for yourselves and your family.

2016 WINTER TYRES-With all the rain and floods and now Snow? Winter Tyres are a NO BRAINER !

2016 WINTER TYRES;Please buy Winter tyres you know it makes sense

September to October is a busy time of year for all us tyre retailers and this year in 2014 has been no different. We are at the front line because we are the ones that sell, advise, and fit the

products on to the customers cars. This is the time of year that we start to think about fitting new ones to our cars, because we know that bad weather will be upon us like a flash , without much warning, (although this year we have had a Months rainfall, in just two days and it feels like winter already).

2016 WINTER TYRES

2016 WINTER TYRES;winter tyres ready to go

Much safer in all kind of weather

Many of our roads have been flooded.Hence, due to torrential rain falls.Thus, making driving our cars more of a hazard than ever. The special designs of tread patterns on winter tyres.Therefore, make them much safer than the ones we use in  summer . In fact we at Pellon tyres keep winter tyres on our vehicles.For this reason, all the year round. Because it looks to me that all the seasons are blending into one.

2016 WINTER TYRES

Winters, will give you more confidence.Especially, in all kinds of weather,(unless you live in a desert). I know I keep harping on about this subject. But I truly believe this product is the best thing to buy.Of course, if you need to buy tyres this time of year. You must think about you and your families safety.Especially when driving your car in bad weather.

Not much difference in cost

In my opinion the biggest stumbling block to buying winters was the price. Here in the UK motorists were reluctant to pay out for tyres that were almost twice the price as summers . In my earlier days in the industry winters  were only bought by rich people who went to the Alps to enjoy a skiing holiday, but then our winters were much milder, and a hard frost was rarely heard of. But as time has gone by we all know that the Global warming that we were told about is coming true and our summers are becoming wetter and our winters are becoming much colder.

2016 WINTER TYRES

These days we are increasingly sourcing winters.Hence, at more competitive prices. Tyres have now become a World market.So, like most other things tyres are now produced in places like China.

2016 WINTER TYRES

A vintage General winter tyre advert

Consequently, we are able to buy cheap tyres. Including ones that are now produced in vast numbers. This has now brought down the winter tyre prices. Therefore, we at Pellon tyres. Market a brand called Jinyu tyres, who produce a low cost winter tyre, we also recommend Avon winter tyres, but in general all winter tyres have come down in price because of the demand across the whole of Europe

Winter tyres are becoming a necessity

2016 WINTER TYRES

Snow will soon be with us be prepared ?

Now we must start preparing for an expected hard winter. Because, it is now odds on that we will get one.Perhaps, due to Global warming. I am one of those people who used to laugh at the experts, when they used to spout off about climate change, but now we are seen it with our own eyes. Just like having to buy warmer clothing we should start to get used to fitting winter tyres and this is the time to fit them.
