Of course, Nokian Winter Tyres have become a world wide product name. because of their outstanding ability in winter weather conditions.

Countries with all winter round snow and ice have felt the benefits of fitting Nokian winters for a long time now.

Here in countries like the UK, then we dont get the same snow affected winters as our more Northern counter parts. However Nokian winters will help protect you family in all winter conditions.

In my opinion then safety is paramount. Any driver that finds themselves in a skidding car fitted out with summer tyres will vouch for that.

So there is nothing worse than loosing your car on a wet or snow covered road. Millions of drivers have experienced this, but it can be avoided. Cars are now getting larger and so are the tyres. Ladies love to sit high up with good all round vision of the road. In actual fact so do I ! This is because when we are in a higher up seat position we all feel safer (ask truck drivers!!)

One of the slighter down sides of the SUV’s and Crossover cars is that the tyres are larger and in many cases narrower. This is how they have been developed with the car manufacturers. Of course, these cars are fitted with summer tyres. Nothing wrong with that! until winter comes along. I will never forget the first winter when the BMW and Mercedes SUV’s were on the roads for the first time.

Nokian Winter Tyre Test Winners Again-SUV vehicles were useless in the first snow fall that we had.

Here in Halifax UK where it is very hilly, SUV’s were getting stuck everywhere. As a result our phones never stopped ringing. People were hunting around for winter tyres, they were getting hopelessly stuck. Since then drivers have learned their lesson.

Hence, many drivers are now fitting winter tyres every year. So, just as a safety precaution. These tyres are superb in winter conditions and will enhance your families safety when having to travel in snowy winter conditions.

We at Pellon Tyres recommend any brand of winter tyres. Because, I have personally tested and tried the Nokian Winter tyre brand. These tyres are superb. Not only do they give extra protection when driving in snow and ice, but also heavy rain. Especially on motorways. Another Nokian bonus is that these tyres are really quiet. My family car is a large SUV and the winter tyres do not make any difference to road noise.

Of course these Nokian Winter Tyre Test Winners Again are well worth recommending. Check your tyre size online

Of course, it is always good to see accreditation’s given to quality products. Nokian tyres are no exception to this. gaining an approval to fit certain Nokian tyres as original equipment to some BMW models.

The tyre that Nokian are to supply BMW with is the excellent WR D4 winter tyre. Consequently, the tyre will be fitted as original equipment to BMW’s latest “Sports Activity Vehicle” or SAV. Yet another abbreviation to remember?

The tyre size to be used is the 225/55R17 in a “H” rated tyre. As a Nokian tyre dealer this is great news.

My wife and I decided to buy an up market car last year and went for the Jaguar F Sport. We were sick of turning up to meetings in a van?

Anyhow, I decided to fit a set of Nokian winters to the car. So, just to try them out so to speak. I firmly believe that any brand of winter tyres should be fitted before the onset of winter.

My main worry was to be noise the Jaguar F Sport is a very quiet car even on some of our concrete motorways. We went on to fit a set of 255/55V19 XL  Nokian WR SUV 3 tyres. Wow, the results were excellent. Remarkably, we found that there was no difference in road noise at all. In fact we have now had three snowfalls in the area and many freezing nights resulting in “black ice”. The car has never lost traction once. I always feel more confident when selling a product with my own personnel experience. My new Nokians did not disappoint me ?

Nokian Tyres Approved-BMW

When SUV’s first came out then it soon became noticeable that they were useless when driving in snow. Especially here in hilly Halifax. So, BMW and Mercedes owners were soon looking for winter tyres to give their vehicles some traction in the snow, ice and wet roads. As a result SUV owners are now more street wise and the Nokian and vredestein winter tyres are among their favorite choices.

Get Snow Tyres Fitted-UK faces MONTHS of SNOW: Sinking polar vortex to trigger COLDEST winter since GREAT FREEZE

Scenes like this are becoming more frequent throughout the Halifax area this winter of 2018

Get Snow Tyres Fitted

This winter (2017-2018) is becoming one of the most unpredictable winters in recent years. Snow and blizzards one day heavy rain the next and so on. Especially here in the Halifax UK area. Earlier this week I delivered a battery order to a customer in Suffolk. Once out of Yorkshire there was nothing but a clear blue sky and a low in the sky winter sun.

It was like this all day. I could not believe it when on my return I was listening to radio Leeds. The reporter was saying that cars were getting stuck in heavy snow all over the West Yorkshire area. Living in the lower area of Mirfield, then we only had gale force winds and heavy rain showers.

This brings me back to the preparation of your cars before winter arrives. We have been spoiled in recent winters with very little snow and mild weather. However this year has brought us down to earth. As I am  sat here writing this article we are having heavy snow forecast for later on this evening.

Get Snow Tyres Fitted

Mothers will be worrying about getting the kids to school and dads worrying about getting to work. Here at Pellon Tyres we never worry about bad weather. Because, we fit winter tyres to all our vehicles. So, we can confidently travel to work and back and not have to worry about the snow. Subsequently, we do have to watch out for the other drivers, skidding and getting stuck down Pellon lane.

The good thing about it is that drivers come flooding in the following day wanting winter tyres or just new tyres in general. A little bit of thought before winter would have prevented all the stress and worry about getting stuck or skidding in the snow.

Young Drivers-Winter Driving

Every Car Needs Winter tyres in the Winter. This is something that I have been ranting on about for years. Of course this includes young drivers?

The problem is when you are young is what your priorities are. Most people in the young age bracket have other things to spend their money on than their cars.

Admittedly though their are some young drivers who spend thousands of well earned cash, on their cars. Upgrading the suspension and tyres and doing as much as their knowledge will allow to make them go faster.

We have all seen them flying about town or overtaking in silly places?

As a garage business owner, then I see all driver types. As far as tyres are concerned, then I think that it is the younger drivers that are supporting the part worn tyre industry.

In the area of the UK where I live and have my garage then hundreds of these small bucket shops have opened selling part worn tyres. As a result I have to pass some of these places on a daily basis. It has not escaped my attention that many of the customers buying these tyres are in the younger driver bracket.

Over the past years I have gone out of my way to ask young people about this trend. Normally it is at a family gathering where my children’s friends are attending. Of course my kids are adults now and so I ask their friends about buying part worn tyres. To my horror many of them do not know anything about them? In fact they thought that these tyres were a legitimate choice.

Young Drivers-Winter Driving-Do not buy part worn tyres

One girl recently told me that she had bought two part worn tyres for £20. So she could now afford to buy some more expensive perfume. Another frightening fact is that many of the younger drivers did not know anything about tyre pressures. Including any affects that low and high tyre pressure may have on their driving skills.

Young Drivers-Winter Driving

Scenes like this are lovely to look at but young drivers should take extra care and slow down.

To my surprise the one area of expertise concerning knowledge about their cars, was in fact insurance. They know all about the little black boxes that insurance companies fit in young drivers cars. Hence, to help reduce their insurance premium if they drive more carefully.

In general they should take notice of older more experienced drivers. When winter arrives take things steady when driving in bad weather. Carry extra clothing and a plastic snow shovel, just in case. however the best safety advice that I could give would be to fit winter tyres at the beginning of winter. Winter tyres will give the driver a safer journey and indeed more confidence when negotiating driving on snow and ice covered roads.

Make sure that you have the correct tyre pressures. This boosts ride comfort along with performance and durability of your tyres. Winter tyres are best for drivers that may have to face snowy and water drenched roads. Of course during the winter months.

Young Drivers-Winter Driving-Winter challenges all ages but careful driving will prevail

Consequently, winter driving is challenging for most motorists. Whether you live in the hills and mountains that sees a lot of snow and ice every winter. Or you live further south where you may only have a few weeks of nasty weather. Winter driving can be hazardous.

Whether you are young or old (like me) then weather conditions can be unpredictable. Subsequently, placing extra demands on your vehicle and your driving skills. To ensure your driving safety this winter season, you must be prepared. As in so many circumstances in life a little preparation before hand can make all the difference later on.

Apollo Winter Tyres to the Rescue in Yorkshire Crematorium for Halifax Funeral Company

Apollo Winter Tyres

Apollo Winter Tyres to the RescueApollo Winter Tyres


In early November we received a phone call from a local undertaker. Melia Funeral Services,here in Halifax, West Yorkshire in England UK.

winter tyres

Hearses with their new winter tyres  fitted

No problem there. Because throughout the year the company normally just have a puncture fixed now and then. This is due to the fact. Hence, that their hearses do not do much mileage. Usually drive at a snail’s pace, when driving to the cemetery or crematorium.

However this call was different. Melias wanted to buy two sets of Apollo Winter Tyres for their hearses. The reason for this was that the hearses were getting stuck on the incline to the chapel in Elland crematorium, and were getting a little embarrassed when getting stuck.

We thought it was a bit funny at first but they had obviously given the problem some thought and were not prepared to get stuck this coming winter. I actually visited this crematorium  to take a look for myself, but the incline is not that steep. I think it is because the hearse drives really slowly. In a normal car you could probably take a run at this and clear it easily, even without special Apollo Winter Tyres fitted.

Apollo Winter tyres fitted

The strange thing is that last winter was the mildest for twenty years and the snowfall was minimalistic. The funeral company have kept the tyres on all year round and now that we are approaching the new cold spell, they will be keeping their fingers crossed that they did not waste their money and we have a couple of spells of snow to try out their new Apollo Winter Tyres

Here in Halifax we are in a very hilly area and sell many sets of these wheels but this is the most unusual reason that I have heard of, the hearses came in and we fitted 2 sets of 22560R16 Apollo Winter Tyres and the hearses won’t get stuck again.(we hope?) .

Hi I would like to introduce myself. Having worked in the Garage and Winter Tyres Business and Battery business now for 40 years. So, I worked for a couple of national tyre companies.

Winter Tyres Important-Safety is the first priority by fitting these tyres in Winter

Winter Tyres Important

Winter Tyres Important

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.

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

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

 Type of Tyres

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

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.

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, such as Land Rovers. About tyres explains the fact that sidewalls of these types of tyres are stronger than the summer tyres and feature large tread block patterns that deflects mud and slush from the contact patch and improve grip on loose sand or gravel 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.

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, 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 1.6mm 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 3mm.

             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 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 tyres

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”…

SUV Safety Winter Tyres- Take better control over your SUV in bad weather by fitting winter tyres

SUV Safety Winter Tyres

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. The Wintrac Nextreme already complies with the European regulations for wet grip and noise, which will come into force in 2012”…
