Of course, the compound on the Conti tyres, is generated from computers. Hence, to provide the tyres with tread pattern .Including , high-void all-terrain pattern with interlocking tread blocks.
Naturally, this is also backed by placing the sipes. Subsequently, in a way that rejects and throws out pieces of grit and gravel. Significantly, at one time tyres with many sipes would also be noisy. Of course, when driving on normal tarmac roads. The Continental tyres. Thus, with all their siping can now run much quieter, on normal tarmac roads, due to the computer design
Continental Quiet Tyres uses remarkably simply solution to absorb tyre sound waves
Conti’s engineers say that,” the Black Chili rubber compound. That is used in the foam lining of the new Quiet Tyres. Hence, is designed to mesh with the roughness of the road. At the same time, temporary atomic connections. Thus, between the tyre and the road surface ensure high adhesion. So acting like small suction pads. Both factors make for the greatest possible adhesion. As a result, in all directions.Including, during braking, cornering, and acceleration. Of course, on both wet and dry roads”.
These new Quiet Tyres will be on sale for the use on high performance cars. The tyres were shown off and tested on the roads of Southern Spain, near Marbella. The event was attended by top motorsport journalists on a 300 mile stretch of roads, using cars like the Jaguar F-Type, Mercedes CLA AMG, BMW M4, Porsche Macan S, Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray and Tesla Model S.
Continental Quiet Tyres
The engineers at Continental tyres must be highly delighted. Especially, with recent innovations. Continental quiet tyres as I call them. Have brought a different meaning to tyres that you simply cannot hear. This is a great advantage to all types of vehicle. Especially, the super cars that rely on comfort. The new Continental quiet tyres will certainly give them that.
The theory is quiet simple? It is like any kind of sound proofing. Just a layer of special foam material bonded to the inside of the tyres tread. The strip is from 100 to 120 mm wide and is fitted to the whole circumference of the inside of the tread area, by using ContiSeal. ContiSeal is a puncture repair material to bond the strip into the Continental quiet tyres.
The system can be used on almost any radial tyres. The foam is very light and has no effect on the weight or balancing of the tyre and wheel assembly.
Have made extensive in-roads into the perfect winter tyre. of course, I mean that are most suitable for the larger and sportier cars. Hence such as the BMW’s and Mercedes.
Continental are of course a German company. Thus, they are interlinked with the German tyre manufacturers. This is of course a natural thing to do. Mainly because of the close proximity to each other.
Therefore, it makes sense to cooperate with each other. Naturally, in the compatibility of interlinking products. Of course, this could be just seen as progress. Indeed it probably is.
Car design and manufacturing is a fast moving science. Therefore, tyres have to keep up with the pace. The tyres of yesteryear would be no good for the modern fast coupe. Of course that is produced in Germany.
Tyre buffs, only have to look at the Cont Contact range of tyres. Each new car that is developed, now requires a tyre to match. Continental have always been at the forefront of tyre development. This meets all the qualities of the large German car Manufacturers.
This tyre development also includes winter tyres. Germans and other Europeans have an urge to head for the ski resorts during winter time. This means that these large cars require tyres that will go down the Autobahn at over 100 MPH and then drive up mountains to reach the snow slopes.
This where the Continental Winter TS850 Tyres, come into their own. These tyres were tested by the German car magazine Auto Zeitung , the ContiWinterContact TS 850 defended its title and again finished best in test.
Continental tyres. Thus, are now big backers of the women’s football scene. Consequently, they are in their third season of sponsorship. Thus, of The FA WSL . Of course, have in recent times made a four year agreement from 2014-2018. This is to partner the women’s game. Which also reaches out to prestigious England Women’s Team. Hence, they also support the FA Women’s Cup. naturally, as well as the newly extended FA WSL and The FA WSL Continental Cup. In addition, Continental will continue to support The FA Girls Football Festivals; a national programme to increase participation at grassroots level.
Here in the Yorkshire area Continental tyres have supported the female game at a lower level including supplying new balls and training equipment. Mrs Debbie Bastow of Pellon Tyres in Halifax,Yorkshire recently received some great football equipment from Continental tyres for the team that she runs, Tingley ladies Football team.
Continental tyre cup tickets to see one of the England women’s games will be on offer by entering through the link above .
I have already watched some of the games. As expected, i am impressed at the high level of standards in the female game.
Continental will also form a small group of sponsors. Thus, who will enjoy access to all levels of the game from high profile awareness via perimeter boards and elite players, through to exclusive activity at grass roots level in the local communities, such as there backing at pellon Tyres for the Tingley ladies team. Will run along side the Continental tyres latest Hotel stay deal that is on from June to the end of September 2015.
Have always been a popular choice for the tyre buying public of Halifax here in Yorkshire, UK.
The tyre that has been the most popular has been the Rainsport 2 tyre. This tyre has started to become obsolete and not with the keeping of modern cars and their developments. The tyre has served Uniroyal very well over the years.
I first started to buy tyres from Uniroyal tyres way back, when they had a distribution centre on the Leeds ring road at Seacroft.
This made it easy for us to collect tyres when we needed them. The company was then absorbed into the giant Continental tyre empire. The Seacroft depot was closed down and moved to the Continental distribution centre in Castleford about twenty miles away close to the M62 motorway system.
The Rainsport 2 was a directional tread pattern, but was less responsive than the new Uniroyal tyres Rainsport 3 . Modern cars require much quieter tyres and so the Rainsport 3 was developed as a non-directional tyre. This has been a common trend amongst tyre companies. Recently though I have noticed that Michelin have introduced the CrossClimate tyre, which has a directional tread pattern?
Uniroyal also make a range of MPV and van tyres called the Rain Max 2 tyres. These tyres offer great stability and grip in wet weather and are a market leader.
The Uniroyal Rainsport 3 tyre is an asymmetric tyre,
which means that the tread pattern is different across the tyre width and the sidewalls are marked inside and outside so that they can be fitted correctly onto the vehicle. These tyres should be replaced or fitted in sets of four. They will give the car much safer cornering and stability at high speeds.
They are available in the Halifax area of Yorkshire from us at Pellon Tyres or can be bought online at http://www.pellontyres.co.uk/TyreSearch/Details/11017/Uniroyal+RainSport+3+20555R16

The two companies have teamed up using the Continental M traction compound rubber, which will give the runner excellent grip on both wet and dry roads even in snow and ice a spokesman says…
“The Adidas innovation team faces exactly the same challenges when it comes to developing the perfect out-sole for trail and outdoor sports shoes.

Subsequently, this is a video about your car’s safety. Especially in wet weather conditions. Therefore with winter approaching, it is well worth considering which tyres to fit.
Many motorists, prefer to keep their summer tyres on the car in winter. Hence, it could be something to do with their particular finances. Whatever the reason, it is a wise move to check out your tyres before the inclement weather arrives.
Some of our customers are on a low budget. Therefore they will buy a budget brand of tyre. Here at pellon Tyres we recommend the use of Jinyu tyres. Jinyu are of excellent quality and can be bought at a reasonable price.
Other customers, prefer to fit the same tyres as the car came on. For example, if Michelin tyres were fitted, then they would replace the worn out tyres with Michelins again.
Other customers, will ask for our opinion as to which tyres to fit.Accordingly, I happen to like Continental tyres. Of course, we actually stock these tyres in the popular sizes. One of the reason is that we trust the Continental products, after many years of my experience in the tyre business.

There is no doubt that in the past forty years, since I have been a tyre retailer, the discovery about the humble dandelion, helping to make tyres, has to be up there in the top ten of tyre related discoveries.
What many car owners do not know is the huge amount of raw materials that go into making the humble tyre. Indeed car tyres use a large amount crude oil in the tyres manufacture.
The oil is used mainly for making carbon black, resins and anti-aging chemicals. Also synthetic rubber, which all require crude oil in the manufacturing process.
Tyres also consume large amounts of natural rubber. In fact the average car tyre uses between 10 and 30% of natural rubber in its make-up. The larger truck tyres obviously use much more. Rubber plantations grow in the sub-tropical regions of the world. They grow in such countries as Brazil and Malaysia.
Continentals Dandelion tyres
It is elastic and durable as well as been resistant to abrasion. It is an ideal material for the rubber production that goes in the manufacture of tyres.
Enter the good old dandelion
Due to the fact that we are slowly running out of sustainable materials.Researchers have been looking for alternatives. Continental has been working with the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany, to find alternatives to the dwindling rubber plantations.
Continental scientists, were looking for something that had a similar molecular structure to the latex that is produced by the rubber trees. It was noticed that the dandelion plant gave off a similar white milky liquid, when the stem or a leaf was broken. The gardeners amongst us will know this only too well.
Continentals Dandelion tyres
The dandelion also has a very similar crop yield to the rubber trees, producing 1 to 2 tons per hectare.
This type of innovation by the Continental tyre company is going a long way to reducing our dependency on fossil fuels and in my opinion is a great step forward.

Continental tyres were first made in Hanover, Germany
Continental made soft rubber products and solid tyres for the first bicycles and horse drawn carriages. In 1892 the company then started to make the first Pneumatic tyres in Germany.
Moving on to 1901 Continental tyres made the first tyre to have a tread pattern. This was for added grip, and it was already clear that the German tyre company were becoming very innovative.
In 1905 not long after the addition of a tread pattern. Continental invented the anti-skid tyre, which was a forerunner the studded snow tyres that we are familiar with today.
Continental tyres celebrated their 50th anniversary.They were to be the first German tyre company to add textiles to the tyre product with the addition of cord casing onto the market. Linen was the material that was used before this new method. This discovery was now to be replaced with a more workable cord fibre fabric. At the same time, they started to make large pneumatic tyres fit trucks.
In 1926 carbon black was to be introduced into the tyres compound. This would give the tyres more strength and make them last longer. Once again Continental were leaders in innovation and strove to make a better product.
Had already been involved in early motorsport events. In the mid-1930’s racing tyres were fitted to Auto-Union and Mercedes racing cars with four straight wins in the German Grand Prix. They also were beating numerous speed records. Their tyres were proving to be of exceptional quality even in the early years.
The war years saw very little movement from Continental but productions. But in 1945 production resumed after permission from the British government. In 1955 Continental started producing the “tubeless tyres” that would be fitted to most cars.
Bringing things more up to date. 1979 would see Continental buying American tyre company Uniroyal.Thus, gave Continental a much larger base in Europe. This would be the start of the German tyre maker. Therefore Becoming so common here in the UK.
The Eighties would see more acquisitions, with the purchase of General tyres in America and a cheap tyre brand from Portugal called Mabor tyres. Both Mabor and General were well-known brands here in the UK.
Continental tyres then bought a large share of Czech tyre company Barum, another famous budget tyre brand, along with 50 tyre dealer outlets. At this stage, they were well known all across Europe and not only here in the UK. They had amassed more than 2000 tyre retailers across 18 European countries and were now becoming contenders for the largest tyre company in the World, a feat that they later achieved.
Continental tyres are no doubt the world’s biggest tyre innovators in the world. They have put billions of Euros into tyre research and development.
Tyre awards & more: Independent journalists, consumer champions, environmental bodies and tyre buyers have one thing in common: they give Continental awards
Continental really are a top tyre company, with many quality achievements and top tyre test results, winning some of the top tyre awards.
Continental tyres are second to none as far as research and development goes. They are always contributing to environmental issues and trying out new ideas and using different products to use in place of the dirty oil based materials. These are the bad materials that cause greenhouse gases.
Continental also support women’s football. Continental tyres are supporting their third season of sponsorship of The FA WSL and would you believe it they have committed themselves to a further four years of support from 2014-2018 to partner the women’s game. This also includes support to the England Women’s Team, The FA Women’s Cup, and the newly extended FA WSL and The FA WSL Continental Cup. In addition, Continental will continue to support The FA Girls Football Festivals; a national programme to increase participation at grassroots level.
This brings me onto the next football story on a more local level. Continental have contributed and large number of training vests and warm up kits. As well as training aids to one of our local ladies open age football teams. The under tens girls team of the Tingley Athletic football club here in Yorkshire UK.
Continental Tyres and Pellon Tyre & AutoCentre Ltd support Grass roots football
The Tingley U10s Girls received a Continental Warm up Kit to boost their training supplies this week after a kind donation by Continental. Debbie Bastow, who manages the Open Age Ladies team at Tingley. She also works at Pellon Tyre & AutoCentre Ltd, Halifax. It was agreed after a meeting recently with the Continental rep. He said that he would be happy to continue their ongoing support with grassroots football by giving a warm up kit. The kit consists of bibs, balls, cones, bag and pop up goal.
Nicola Smith who manages the U10s has been doing a great job this season. The team is growing in confidence and skills. They are currently looking for new players to join next season and will be training throughout the summer, they play in the West Riding Junior Girls Football League. They generally have matches every weekend. It is a good thing when giant companies like Continental tyres can take time out to help the female game at a local level.

The open shoulders of the tyres help to provide very good handling characteristics on farm tracks and gravel off-road terrain. The tread design and wear resistant tread compound offers the potential for high mileage performance. Consequently, the ContiCrossContact AT tyre has three circumferential rows of blocks. Thus guaranteeing that the Pirelli tyre rolls very smoothly and quietly.
