Bridgestone tyres bring out Bridgestone Blizzard Winters

 

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Contrary to this article we find that UK customers DO buy winter tyres

Bridgestone tyres have indeed brought out  new Bridgestone Blizzard Winters. In my opinion this is a step that the other leading tyre makers are making, a more varied amount of winter products.

One of our biggest sellers here in Halifax was Yokohama “W” winter tyres they were very popular sellers.

Another reason that I do not agree with this article is because we are now much more conscious about changing our summers  with winters  because of the colder winters that we are now experiencing.

We have now been operating a “winter tyre hotel” for the past three years,not only does it work for us but it keeps in touch with our customers at least twice a year when they come in for theirs changing.

Bridgestone Tyres introduce a new SUV Winter Tyre

Blizzak SUV winter tyre LM-80

Bridgestone have upgraded their SUV winter tyres range to include the Blizzak LM-80 EVO. Although these tyres have been out a couple of years now, they have proved to be a leader in the SUV winter tyre market.

The old words when describing Bridgestone Blizzard Winters certainly flow when introducing this wonderful tyre product. In line with most other tyre manufacturers, Bridgestone Blizzard Winters have designed

Bridgestone Blizzard Winters

Bridgestone Blizzard Winters an excellent product

these with many sipe patterns to help get rid of the slush and wet that we associate with bad winter driving conditions. They have also added silica to the tyre compound to enable them  to remain flexible when driving in freezing temperatures.

The design is topped up with by adding  a centre rib and extra shoulder  blocks to the  tread area, for extra strength when cornering, giving these larger vehicles better handling and wet braking when driving in winter conditions. Here is some advice about driving in  winter conditions.

Damaged Alloy Wheels Repaired- This damage could have spread and shattered the wheel very lucky Driver ?

Relaxing. last week I was sat in my small office . Day dreaming and  just looking out of the window. So. I noticed a breakdown recovery truck with a blue car on the back. I never thought more a do about it as we have these broken down cars brought into us all of the time, as most busy auto centres do.

About ten minutes later a member of my staff came in shouting for me to have a look at this wheel..The Damaged Alloy Wheel had come off the car that was brought in on the back of a transporter, a Ford Focus with a sport conversion, up-rated brakes and over size Cheap Alloy Wheels, you know the thing I mean this was a young guys car and a bit sporty.

However the guy had been going at speed and hit a massive pot hole in the road. The impact had caused a massive blow out to both his offside (drivers side) alloy wheel and completely

Damaged Alloy Wheel

Damaged Alloy Wheel;Pot-holes like this are the biggest danger to alloy wheels and tyres

wrecked the tyres and caused severe damage to the alloy wheels. We can have small damages repaired by a local alloy welding specialist. These are very often small cracks that appear on the rims and start to leak air from the wheel and tyre assembly. This is most common on some BMW models and some times we have known BMW replacing wheels free of charge. These small cracks can be repaired successfully, to the pleasure of many of our customers. It has been a bad time for broken and cracked alloy wheels recently due to the large increase of pot-holes on our roads, and so it is good to be able to give our customers the good news when they do not have to buy a new wheel, but we can have their damaged Refurbished Alloy Wheels repaired.

I had not seen alloy wheel so badly damaged ?

We were all amazed at the massive split in the Damaged Alloy Wheel that came off the front. Shockingly, have never seen one so bad. Splitting was almost all round the circumference of the wheel. If you look at the image bellow then  you can see what I mean. Luckily for the customer we have just become a member of a buying group. Now here in the UK called Point S . Fortunately, one of the suppliers we can deal with. Hence, sells TSW wheels Alloy Wheel and Tyre Packages. We were able to supply four new wheels along with two new General Tyres and the guy went on his way a happy driver.

Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre offer car and van servicing and repairs now including “Wheel Repairs” to all makes of vehicles. Members of Unipart Car Care centres.

So, 80% of cars now have alloy wheels fitted to them! and as you know, every day thousands of these wheels are incurring minor damage. Of course, from kerbing, potholes. Causing  stone chipping and lacquer discoloration. Predominantly, this damage stands out like a sore thumb. Especially on polished rims. Of course by offering this new service we were looking for a cost effective method. Of course to repair and bring the damaged alloy wheel(s) back to a showroom finish.

Other vehicles might have been originally built with a focus on fuel efficiency such as in the case of hybrids. Buying OE as a replacement tire means the consumer can stay true to what the OE manufacturer had in mind when they built the vehicle.”… http://www.moderntiredealer.com/news/story/2012/11/oe-or-replacement-yokohama-breaks-it-down.aspx

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Budget Car Battery business now for 40 years. I have worked for a couple for national tyre companies in my younger days, before starting my first business. I now own a company here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre, and I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars and their related products that will help my business.

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.

A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES-A048 are a winner for Yokohama tyres

Post Updated 23rd Dec 2013

recently developed by Yokohama tyres to beat the tough conditions on such rallies and eventually help produce the winner, a great achievement for A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES. 

Yokohama tyres are much involved in the field of motor sport and this is why they are amongst the Worlds leading tyre makers.

A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES

Yokohama Advan tyres in action on an F4 car racing at Snetterton in Norfolk.

 

 

One of their latest feats was to supply the tyres to winning car driver Toshi Arai taking part in the Rallyof Scotland, driving his Subaru in the Production Cup category. Although this happened at the end of last year ,I have not yet had time to do a A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES tyres blog.

The weather on this rally was very changeable, with heavy rain and sunny spells for most of the race . This made the going on the gravel stages very slippery and tough and not very consistent. This caused many drivers to spin out of control and there were many crashes and competitors having to drop out. The main tyres used in this event were the gravel tyres the A053, this was recently developed by Yokohama tyres to beat the tough conditions on such rallies and eventually help produce the winner, a great achievement for A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES.

Here at Pellon tyres this week we helped a customer out of a dilemma, he had bought a set of new alloy wheels and Yokohama A048-R new tyres. These A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES are made by Yokohama to suit all motor sport needs. These tyres will give a superior control in both wet and dry driving conditions and are specially important to the amateur track day drivers. Any way this customer called out a mobile tyre fitter to fit his A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES but the fitter could not fit them as they were too difficult to fit.

We were able to fit his Yokohama tyres ?

tyres for the Honda S 2000

He then brought his tyres and wheels to us at Pellon tyres for us to have a go. Alex and the other lads had to problems fitting and balancing the wheels they were truly professional. Our customer is going to use the wheels at a track day in Oulton Park, driving his wonderful Honda S 2000 sport car. We hope he has a great days racing and thank him for some pictures of his car for my blog.

Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres Fitted on this Lotus Elise Owner Insists

Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres help to stabilize the Lotus Elise

For a number of years now I have been proud to own my very own garage and tyre centre. I say this because despite all the moaning’s that go on over the years, regarding “things

Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres

Dale fitting 2 x Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres to a lotus elise

Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres

changing” and “if this and if that”, we still carry on doing what we are best at. This in my opinion includes a great mix of different types of customers, making my job much more interesting.

Every one that comes through the door are different and require different things. Let’s face it most people who drive cars, just don’t want to spend any money on them, without the exception of a few drivers who seem to know exactly what they want. In general though when their car breaks down or requires new tyres then this becomes a distress purchase.

I would say that at least half of our customers are in this category. Especially in recent years when the economy of most countries has been stretched to say the least, and consumers are watching their finances more than ever. A good example is the recent upsurge in the sale of part worn tyres, I am sure that drivers know exactly what they are, but are willing to take the cheaper option. We are also noting that our clients that are buying tyres are opting for the budget tyre option.

One of our main suppliers have recently complained to me that their sales of their Mid-Range Tyres have fallen in the summer months, but it not “rocket science” to understand that this is the school holiday season and people are paying for their summer holidays or spending their disposable income on days out with the kids, certainly buying tyres is the last thing on their minds. The customers that are buying tyres are usually the distress purchases and these are the ones that go for the Cheap New Tyres.

This is not a new thing, it happens every year, but the affect does depend on the economy and peoples disposable income. The same affect has given rise to upsurge in shoppers using budget super markets like Lidl and Aldi. This has been price driven by the consumer’s lack of spare cash. This is a bonus for these outlets because shoppers are finding out that the cheaper products on offer are also of good quality and so in my opinion the big supermarkets will lose out to the smaller cheaper guys for good.

Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres

At the other end of the market stores like M&S food are also doing well by selling the better quality products in packages and deals, making the customers purchases hard to resist. We in the tyre business should take notice of this and become sharper at the selling end. We find the mid-range brands are a bit slow to react apart from complaining that sales are down, but in my opinion they should give the retailers a better package, to pass onto the motorists and help lift their sales.

The larger names in tyres are still hanging on

The brand names in tyres will always survive partly due to the following that they command, the one I am most thinking about is Michelin. This great tyre company have always been renowned for the quality of their products and have been the benchmark for other companies to follow. The largest tyre company at the moment is Bridgestone, who have also gained a reputation for quality and design over the past years. It is always nice to hear when a customer calls in for tyres such Michelin’s or Continentals fitting onto their cars. It is a much easier job for us when the driver knows exactly what he or she wants, but it is all within the diversity of our customer and products range.

This brings me onto a car that we had in on the other Saturday. The car in question was a Lotus Elise and the guy knew exactly which tyres he wanted fitting. They were 22545×16 Yokohama UK ADO 8R tyres to the rear of the car. This little sports car is always a head turner and it has this effect on me, when I see one I always take a second look. This little car is very light and is able to accelerate at 0-60 mph in 5.8 seconds. Because of the light weight of the car this improves the road handling including steering, cornering and braking.

Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres

Michelin tyres have always been a popular choice for many motorists

When I had a quick word with the owner he explained how good these Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres were, because of the cars lightness the tyres help stabilize the cars performance and give it great stability. This particular Lotus was a 97-98 model and though a little old now was still in great looking condition as you can see in my images. The car was first released in 1996 and was a stunning little spots car and although there have been many changes and variations the basic car has remained the same. Newer versions of the car now come with updated lead lights and alloy wheels with improved aerodynamics.

The little Lotus Elise had the new Yokohama ADO 8R Tyres fitted and went on its way. The car looked stunning with its new tyres and we will look forward to see the car when the front tyres are ready for replacing. We do get many people who call into us knowing what they want and believe me it makes life a lot easier.
