Land Rover Freelander-General Grabber Tyres

The General Grabber , is a tyre that i can’t stop enthusing about. Hence, it is one of those products, that sells themselves. of course, just like we have Michelin guys, who only want to buy Michelin tyres. So we have the General grabber guys.

Of course, I keep writing about them. Because I want all the Drivers of SUV’s and 4X4’s. Thus, in the Halifax area of the UK that we are the place to buy them from.

General tyres sell themselves. As expected, because of the hilly terrain of Halifax UK. Naturally, we have a large number of drivers owning the Land Rover range of vehicles. The general grabber is well known amongst the drivers of these vehicles.

Land Rover drivers are always well informed about their vehicles. They know about a tyres qualities. of course whether driving in summer or winter, from sunshine through to extreme weather conditions.

The general Grabber in all its forms and modifications, can cope with everything the climate has to throw at them. The land Rover Freelander in the video shows haw diverse these tyres are. So they are seen to cope with the mud and water that is in their path.

It`s not the real off road thing,, but I was alone on a sunday afternoon in my good clothing. But it looks very promising. On Road it`s perfect. Only a little more road noise as my  Pirelli Scorpions. (100% road tire)

MICHELINS Experience Puts the CrossClimate tyre through its Paces a great Video

Michelin CrossClimate tyres are no doubt one of the tyres to watch out for this coming autumn. Michelin have now released stocks of the CrossClimate and we are now getting our own stocks in here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, Yorkshire UK.

it would be impossible to keep all the sizes in stock and so we just stick to the top ten sizes.

Other tyre  manufacturers also make similar products, what we call “all-weather tyres”. Apollo vredestein have just brought out another tyr from the long line of the The new Vredestein Quatrac 5 is characterised by the sleek, asymmetrical design of the tread.

Michelins experience in designing and making tyres that are suitable for driving in winter conditions, stems back to the early days of rallying. Michelins experience in rally tyres is second to none, with Pirelli and Goodyear probably coming a close second.

In my opinion the CrossClimate tyre is a culmination of all this experience. The video shows the extreme conditions and driving that these tyres are put through on testing. This is something that was only available to the tyre trade at one time. Now though we have advanced visual aids for all to see and thanks to YouTube, these tyre companies can show the public exactly how their tyres can perform.

A couple of interesting points that i think about when looking at the CrossClimate, is the use of a directional tread pattern. The modern trend is for the development of the asymmetric tread pattern design, which has the “holding the road on all four corners effect”. Another

Snow Flake emblem on the tyres sidewall

point is that Michelin show “snow flake emblem” on the Cross-climates side wall. This is a good point and means that the tyre has been thoroughly tested in snow conditions, as the video shows.

Michelin  Porsche in Le Mans Race

As a result, I just scooped this because of the great image. Hence, of the Michelin Porsche race tyres. So, that were fitted to the eventual winners car.

Michelin have always manufactured great tyre products. Consequently, they are expected to make a bid for the F1 tyre contract. Of course, along side Pirelli. Currently supply F1 with race tyres.

This years Le mans 24 hour race was won by  Michelin Porsche tyres . They crossed the line with a car driven by German Formula One driver Nico Hulkenberg on the final stages.

Our own British race driver Nick Tandy and the New Zealander Earl Bamber joined him as the other winning drivers. Audi R18 e-tron quattro finished in second and third, respectively.

The winning car was fitted with the famous Michelin race tyres.

"Barely 15 months after its return to world class 
endurance racing, Porsche Team has returned to its former winning ways 
at Le Mans. Nico Hülkenberg (DE), Earl Bamber (NZ) and Nick Tandy (GB) 
steered their N°19 Michelin-equipped 919 Hybrid to an emphatic victory, 
while the N°17 sister car made it a one-two success for the German make.
 The result breaks Audi’s recent sequence of five wins but the 
Ingolstadt firm was part of the podium celebrations thanks to third 
place. There were class wins for Corvette/Michelin (LM GTE Pro), 
Ferrari/Michelin (Am) and KCMG (LM P2)".

Michelin Porsche

Michelin tyres have made massive inroads into all kinds of motorsport in recent years. This includes motorcycle racing and everything else barring formula 1. There are rumours that Michelin may even be considering a move into making a bid for Formula 1 tyre franchise. This came after a statement from one of the top Michelin motorsport guys. He said though that changes would have to be made to the tyre compounds and the teams would have the freedom to choose their own tyres depending of the conditions of the particular circuit, before a bid could be made?

General Altimax Winter Tyres-A Preview of The AltiMAX Touring All-Season Tyre

General Altimax Winter Tyres

General Altimax Winter Tyres

There is little doubt in my mind. Hence, that the tyre buying public are becoming much more aware. Thus, of the safety qualities that winter tyres bring. Of course in winter time. Winter tyres are to me the complete article. However, many of our customers, go for the All-weather tyres.

The general Altimax, falls into this category of tyre. Therefore, I genuinely believe that this is still a better option than the regular summer tyres. The All-weather tyres certainly give the driver more protection and safer motoring in a climate such as we have in the UK.

General Altimax Winter Tyres

My advice would be to buy All-weather tyres, for all year round motoring. Of course, many of our tyre manufacturers make these excellent tyre products. In my opinion general are one of the best. The Altimax tyres are also classed in the mid-range tyre bracket.

Therefore, this means that the tyres will be cheaper than the main brands, but retain good quality. For this reason, we all know that drivers are the first people to try for a bargain and the General Altimax will be no exception.

General Altimax Winter Tyres

If you only want to choose one type of car tyre you are better off sticking to summer tyres. We do recommend changing to winter tyres when the temperature starts falling.
The main reason for this is that in other European countries, it is a legal requirement to change to winter, or cold weather tyres, for the winter season. Winter tyres are the one type of seasonal tyre that is easy to understand! All season tyres are actually a compromise between winter and summer tyres. If you only want to choose one type of car tyre you are better off sticking to summer tyres.

All season tyres are actually a compromise between winter and summer tyres. As with most compromises, they don’t match up to the performance of either summer or winter tyres. There are a few countries where motorists are permitted to have all season tyres fitted on their vehicles all year instead of having to change them twice a year.

In the UK, most cars on the road are fitted with ‘summer tyres’ all year. The main reason for this is that in other European countries, it is a legal requirement to change to winter, or cold weather tyres, for the winter season.

Winter tyres are the one type of seasonal tyre that is easy to understand! Even in the United Kingdom, the average temperature for most parts of the country will be low enough to warrant changing to winter tyres. As a nation, we do seem to be opening our minds to winter tyres, and realising that they are a good investment.

Subaru Forester XT-General Grabber Tyres- in Deep Snow (Grabber AT2) – from a Dash Cam Video

Subaru Forester XT-General Grabber Tyres

Subaru Forester XT-General Grabber Tyres

This excellent video shows the quality and endurance of this Subaru car in thick snow. Consequently, equipped with General Grabber AT2 tyres.

The AT2 tyres have been a popular choice for millions of drivers. Especially the drivers of SUV and 4X4 vehicles. Bridgestone 4X4 tyres are also popular, but General are the top of the pile.

The Forester, was fitted with 215/70R16 General Grabber AT2 tyres. of course the car had standard suspension, (not uprated). Thus this probably the reason for the car bottoming out a few times(this can be heard on the video).

The experiment with the tyres took place on a farm. Of course the filming took place with a video cam, over a few days in winter time. Snow had fallen to a depth between 3 inches and two feet. Thus , giving the car plenty to think about during the tyre test.

General Grabbers are also very popular, here halifax Yorkshire, in the Pennine mountain range foothills. All types of drivers, use the tyres, from farmers to families that live in the hilly areas. Therefore, they are well prepared for the snow that falls practically every winter.

This is the text that accompanied the video

Snow ranging from 3″ to close to 2 foot. I have about 9.5″ of ground clearance and you can hear it bottom out several times in the video on hard snow. Some highlights from a few days out on the farm (Iowa) this Winter with the FXT. Using 215/70r16 (28.1″ diameter) General Grabber AT2 tires (stock suspension). I didn’t have a camera man this weekend to take video from outside the car so we’re stuck with the video from my DVR207 dash man which isn’t that great. The rattling you hear is actually the slightly loose mic inside the camera.
