Car Tyres Online Guide

Car Tyres Online-your car tyres are life savers?

Many motorists. Do not understand the importance of buying the rightCar Tyres Online. Therefore, they and do not link road safety and accidents. Hence, caused by the fitting of the wrong Car Tyres Online. Thus, many motorists are risking their lives. As a result, of leaving their tyres on the cars for too long. Consequently, after the legal limit has been reached. Indeed, many cars that have had an MOT. Naturally, have been failed with car tyres down to the steel belt.

Of course, this is not acceptable. Because it will be an innocent motorist in another car that will be injured. Therefore, by such disregard for their vehicles and car tyres. It is a good job that we are going to keep the one year DVLA MOT Rules now, to think the Government wanted to make the test every two years (hard to believe when you see the bald tyres that we take off)

So what do we do to improve? In my opinion, we should check (or have checked) our car tyres every week. You should check them for lumps and bumps on the side walls, and check the pressures; this is crucial. If you are elderly or cant manage this task. Therefore, you should go to your local garage or Auto-centre. Of course, to ask the staff to check the car tyres for you, we at Pellon tyres are only too willing the people in Halifax, and check their tyres, you have no excuse if you neglect your tyres going down the motorway at 90 miles an hour anything could happen?.

Part Worn Tyres Expensive – “You DO NOT SAVE YOU MONEY in the long run”

Post Updated 19th Dec 2013

Part Worn Tyres Expensive-Proof that part worn tyres work out more expensive in the long run

Most tyre experts and motoring organisations are very concerned about the amount of part worn tyres are now fitted here in the UK. The latest motoring organisation to voice their opinion is the very respectful Motorcodes, of which we at Pellon tyres are members (and proud to be so).

 

These Part Worn Tyres Expensive are generally imported from countries such as Germany, where tyres are generally removed at 3 mil. These Part Worn Tyres Expensive look fine from the outside but there is no saying what Part Worn Tyres Expensivedamage lies under the surface of the tread and could be very dangerous indeed. We are effectively buying old tyres from Germany, the tyres that the Germans throw away as no good any more, I cant believe that we would do such a thing. Part Worn Tyres Expensive also offer a danger to other motorists on the road, they put other drivers at risk because people think they are saving money.

In 1994 part worn tyres came under a law called the “Motor Vehicle Tyres Safety Regulations”, these regulations were to ensure that part worn tyres were properly tested and labelled as such, if people buy tyres that have been tested then this is deemed as ok and suitable for the use on roads, but the Part Worn Tyres Expensive we have come across do not appear to have any checks on them and no label. All part worn tyres must be labelled as such. They must have the words ‘PART- WORN’ marked in capital letters. This must be permanent and legible. (I think this is to give other road users the chance to get out of the way

Many more part worn tyres are now sold because of the economic recession. A recent excellent survey regarding how cheap a part worn tyre really is has been studied and written by a tyre industry expert Stuart Carr. I have posted a link to Stuarts blog and I hope you will click to see that

 part worn tyres cost “MORE” than new tyres in the long run in real terms

To finalise any garage that are in Motorcodes will not endorse the sale of part worn tyres.

Recycling Tyres-Garden use-There are many ways to recycle tyres in the garden

Use tyres of the same size.

As a very keen gardener and the owner of a garage business, I am always looking for legal ways of using my old scrap. Tyres are now costing me £1 each for disposal and when you fit as many as we do in Halifax, West Yorkshire you can see that any other way of using the old ones will help the environment and also my bottom line.

There are several ways to use old ones for the garden, but this blog will be a “compost heap”.You can visit any Auto center near your location, and they will only be too willing to sort you out with the same size tyres that you will need to stack up for a compost heap.

I experimented with a couple of sizes, my garden is quiet large, so I used a size 225/45/17, or you could go for 205/55/16, it all depends on your ability and state of health, but your dealer will only be too glad to give you the old tyres that you need. What I did then, was to lay down the first two one on the top of the other and then started filling them with your garden and house- hold waste,(excluding meat and animal waste). It is best using garden waste such as old veg leaves and other mature greenery, keep it organic.

If you live in Halifax, West Yorkshire Pellon Tyres will only is glad to sort you out with old tyres. Free of charge.

As the tyres fill up, you can just add another tyre on top and carry on to the desired height. When you have reached your limit you can cover the top to keep the rain out if you live in a wet part of your country or leave the top off, remember a compost heap built from old tyres must be kept moist to allow the composting to take place. The old tyres are made of the perfect material to retain the moisture you require for complete composting.

The giant Italian tyre company were given a “Good” in recent tyre tests.Thus, the tests were carried out by the German motoring magazine “AUTO-BILD.”. Hence, the   tests were carried out by using 19565T15 tyre size.Thus, on a VW Golf saloon. Consequently, the Pirelli Snowcontrol 2 were superb in slush and snow conditions.

A similar test was carried out on the Pirelli winter products. Hence this time by another European motoring magazine “AUTO-ZEITUNG”.  This is excellent for a tyre test.

The Pirelli Snowcontrol 2 is a directional tyre, having sipes (the small slits in the tread that help to dissipate the water or snow and slush) running across the treat and also longitudinally around the tread. This enables the Pirelli Snowcontrol 2 to clear away the water slush or snow, very quickly thus enabling the tyre to grip and offer stable driving conditions in inclement weather.

Michelin Tyres Dominant at “Renault Event” at Silverstone Race Track

Dave Smith of Pellon Tyres in Halifax West Yorkshire. Enjoyed a great day out at the Silverstone race track on Sunday. So, Dave took along his two children. Because although the car racing was good, there was also a funfair. Including, plenty of good eating places. Of course, Dave also took a few pictures for the Pellonautocentre blog, (a splendid idea, ).I thought.

Michelin takes a significant part in the Renault event.  Mainly I think because they are both French companies. It still shows though that the most well-known tyre company in the World. Consequently,  still take part in many events. In the past this has made them one of the best tyre products on today’s cars. Including, both production cars and racing cars tyres. I still can not praise them enough. So, in my early days of been a tyre dealer I hated Michelin tyres because their business plans never included the small guys.

Michelin Tyres Dominant; The parents of the modern tyre

All their efforts went to selling the tyre products to larger companies, however over the years I have slowly grown to like and indeed admire the enormous effort and resources that they have put in to help develop today’s modern tyres. We at Pellon sell Michelin tyres at competitive prices online at www.pellontyres.co.uk

Michelin racing tyres are dipping their feet in the world of motorsport again, by supplying tyres to other types of racing, including the FE Championships, which are, of course, the F1 version using electric cars.

“Michelin is back as the official tyre supplier in the STCC. Four classes will compete on the deck from the French manufacturer Michelin 2015 and will supply four levels in the STCC package. Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia goes alongside the sister class Swedish GT formula car class Formula Renault 1.6 and the main class STCC”, said a spokesman for the Scandinavian championship.

Swiss Bentley-Beautiful “Swiss Registered” Bentley With its splendid “white-wall tyres”

Swiss Bentley-Beautiful

Swiss Bentley-Beautiful

Hi while I was on holiday in France recently I came across this wonderful, well kept Bentley in the car park of a French supermarket in a town called Ruffec. Its owner was a short very well dressed and dapper guy who really looked the kind of guy to drive such a car.

Great full white wall tyres fitted

The car was fitted with a set of full side-wall white -wall tyres. A great sight that I have not seen for years. I could see if they were the real thing or just inserts. Most of all they really set the car off, I could have looked but I did not want to be too nosy in the middle of a supermarket car park.

White wall tyres and trims still available

Swiss Bentley-Beautiful

The tyre trims are still available for these cars. I think the car is a Bentley S1 saloon but I am not sure perhaps if you know you could me, as I am very interested in what I can find out about things for my blog when I am out and about.

The result was all the more remarkable for the fact that he and co-driver Mark Kane had dropped as low as 18th on the opening day, following time lost to a loose water pipe. Undeterred, the 23-year-old put in a remarkably mature drive, setting a string of top five stage times to finish just four places behind the sister Mini of his illustrious team-mate, five-times Irish rally champion Eugene Donnelly.

Lighter Tyres- Yokohama Have come up with the more ECO friendly ADVAN ENV-R2 ?

Lighter Tyres

Lighter tyres,yokohama tyres

There’s probably no more important part of your car’s handling and safety than your tyres. Well maybe you the driver, and your mad skills are more influential, but your tires rank right up there. There’s not much we can do about …

 

Eric Roberts’ insight:

 Performance Yokohama

Lighter tyres

 

In the mad and never ending rush to create and manufacture a light weight tyre, the tyre manufacturers have to come up with some new components in order to make their tyre

products lighter and greener.

This also applies to the car manufacturers who are constantly on the look out to manufacture much lighter, more energy efficient vehicle.

Lighter tyres,yokohama cheap tyres

Yokohama tyres on the racing track

The new technology rush also applies to the mid-range tyre companies such as Hankook tyres, Kumho tyres and Yokohama tyres.

Yokohama tyres  Lighter tyres design

Yokohama Tyre has risen to the occasion and has brought out the second-generation ADVAN ENV-R2 as the Official Spec Tyre that will be used in the 2011 Patron GT3

Challenge by Yokohama tyres race series and the GT3 Challenge Class endurance series.

The ENV-R2 will be put through its paces and power a fleet of Porsche 911 GT 3 race cars at leading North American. tracks, such as Sebring, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Road Atlanta. The new cheap tyres are much lighter and reduce the amount of fuel that the cars use by at least 20 % and increases recycling capability while still performing at the same high level of the previous tyre compounds.

This is one the many reasons that we became a Yokohama tyre dealer and we highly recommend this product as a much lighter performance tyre, that we can sell at  cheap  tyres rate. Since writing this blog. Then Yokohama decided to take another junction when it came to advertising and supporting small businesses.

Mixing Tyre Technologies-Does your car have the wrong tyres?, Hub – THE BUSINESS TIMES

Mixing Tyre Technologies

Mixing Tyre Technologies

Mixing Tyre Technologies

The question posed by this article in “The Business Times” is about the mix of tyre manufacturers technologies. Hence when it comes to mixing different tyre brands to the larger and now popular SUV vehicles. In my opinion it is yet another grey area in the crazy world of tyres. “Should we do this” and “can we do that” is a question that I hear every week.

So, the advent of the SUV has certainly opened up a new can of worms. Over the last decade tyre manufacturers have introduced a string of new tyre products. Consequently, pressure was brought on the tyre makers from governments wanting the car manufacturers to make greener and leaner cars. As a result, then tyres had to become lighter in weight and larger in circumference to give less “rolling resistance“.

Coincidentally, the SUV’s came out about the same time. The SUV’s had much larger tyres and it looks to me that new technology tyres were to be developed with these vehicles in mind.

Tyre makers were looking for all types of new materials to add to the rubber latex. Thus, trying to lighten the tyre weight. Continental tyres came up with the milk like substance extracted from “dandelions“. It was found that the milky substance found in the dandelion was of the same molecular make up as the latex . Now Continental are growing vast areas of these plants near their German tyre factories.

Mixing Tyre Technologies

Other finds include the Yokohama tyres use of orange peel oil. However I dont really want to get too technical. The issue is should we mix these different tech tyres on the same vehicle. Especially if the tyres were developed along side the car manufacturers. Of course the SUV’s are now big and powerful, made by all the worlds leading luxury car makers.

Have we now got to the stage when it is important that we stick to the same tyres as the original equipment ones. As a tyre dealer for over forty years, then I am beginning to think so. The attached article explains about the specific tyres that are made for certain SUV’s. Thus, tyres like the Bridgestone Alenza and Italian brand Pirelli’s Scorpion series.

This class of vehicle are also fitted with specific tyres such as the Yokohama Blu-earth RV-02. So, even Nokian are making a winter tyre for the SUV the Nokian WR SUV 3 tyres. Should the specific tyre types be compromised. Personally I do not think so?

When I am on the front line dealing with customers, then I always tell them to the best of my ability. In this case then I would recommend that the car should be on the same tyres that were fitted as original equipment. If they choose not to then it is their responsibility going forward. I suppose looking at it then this is a problem with buying your SUV tyres online.

Mixing Tyre Technologies

The registration number lookup only tells the buyer the size of the tyre and not what the SUV should have on. Subsequently, the best way is for the car owner to take the information from the tyre sidewall and order exactly the same tyres. Definitely a very grey area?
