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 tyre test winners -2015 EVO Magazine Performance Tyre Test – Tyrereviews

Continental tyre test winners

The best tyre test from the UK press is finally here the EVO 2015 tyre test.

 

Continental tyre test winners again-Evo 2015 tyre tests

The Evo tyre test is what we all wait for and 2015 is no exception. This type of tyre testing only came out in relatively modern times, when independent examiners were allowed to compare different products and services against similar products from similar manufacturers. It is now a very common practise for comparisons to be published and there has even been a complete industry set up this with comparison web sites springing up all over the place.

Continental tyres tyre yest winners again

Comparison tyre testing has also become popular in Europe’s motoring magazines. The one that most tyre guys go for is the Evo motoring magazine. Evo test all the aspects of tyre performance in both dry and wet weather conditions. Evo also use more unique tyre sizes, in the 2015 test the tyre size used was the 225/40R18, and they were tested on the VW Golf G Ti.

Evo use a test score system that emphasises the comfort levels of the tyres, in other words which tyre feel better when we are actually driving our own cars. In fact 40% of the score is dedicated to this result, “how good does the tyre feel”. This is very important and a should be a big consideration when you are buying your replacement tyres.

The tyre testing itself was carried out in Italy, at the Vizzola testing facility that belongs to the Pirelli tyre company. As I have said earlier the tyres were tested in both wet and dry conditions, using 225/40R18 tyres from ten different tyre companies.

Testing at Pirelli’s Vizzola facility near Milan, Italy, EVO subjected ten of the best 225/40 R18 tyres available today to the usual mix of dry, wet and comfort tests.

Continental Tyres tyre test winners came as no real surprise, but this time they were almost taken over by the up and coming tyre company Yokohama, with their Advan V105S tyres. Third place went to Pirelli tyres with their modified P-Zero.

I am very pleased with the Yokohama tyre result and although Continental  tyre test winners came in at number one they should now keep an eye open for the up and coming mid-range tyre companies who are also making their names as the motorsport tyre suppliers, giving them data for improving their tyre products.

We supply both Continental and Yokohama in our tyre shop in Halifax Yorkshire UK, and congratulate them on their excellent achievements.

Yokohama VW Scirocco Tyres

Of course, Yokohama Tyres are on their way to become a top ten contender in the world tyre companies. Must be remembered that Yokohama are a Japanese tyre company. So, with great ambitions to be one of the globes best tyre companies.

Not only do they sell a good product but, they have also developed a green environmental tyre, called the “BLUE EARTH’.

The guy who tweeted is certainly happy with his new tyres, fitted to his VW Scirocco, and like thousands of our customers here in Halifax,Yorkshire,UK he will get years of great service from his new Yokohama VW Scirocco tyres.

As many of my readers will know. This Japanese tyre company. Are also very well known for their involvement in manufacturing and supplying tyres for motorsport. This involvement helps in research and development. Designing new tyres for the regular passenger car market.

Pellon tyres in Yorkshire UK, became a Yokohama tyre dealer

So, we have  had nothing else but praise for  this  excellent tyre product. Point-S are our main suppliers now in 2018. So we buy direct with  Point-S rebate.

It came  as no surprise to me when the Twitter guy Adam Beeston, thought it necessary to tweet about the  VW Scirocco tyres. These tyres have always appealed to the younger sportier type of driver.

Yokohama have had many years of motorsport experience. Research and development that has emanated from their tyre products . So, has been passed onto the passenger car tyre market. Making a tyre that has compounds to ensure that the tyre sticks to the road.

Yokohama are also renowned for their expertise in creating a greener tyre. This is known as the “Blue Earth tyre” and is now becoming one of their best sellers.

Other brands we recommend are General tyres and Continental tyres.

Continental Winter Tyres-Braking on Snow a great video

Continental winter tyres one of the best

As winter approaches. Then many writers including myself start to publish winter tyre advice ! So, the past few years have seen a great increase.

Importantly,  in the number of safety conscious drivers. Of course, fitting Continental winter tyres onto their vehicles.  Naturally, because of the onset of winter !  Then the most popular time to have your winter tyres fitted is the November period.

October is the time when tyre writers start to put together their articles. Of course, about the safety aspects of winter tyres and other related products.

This particular video is  indeed produced by Continental tyres. Continental winter tyres are one of the best on the market and often come top in the international motoring magazine tyre tests.

I am fortunate that we are the Continental winter tyres dealer in the Halifax area of Yorkshire here in the UK.

One of the good things about Continental winter tyres, is the fact that they have a vast range of winter tyre products, including winter tyres to fit the huge range of tyres that are fitted to SUV vehicles. These  winter tyres are becoming more and more popular as the drivers of this type of car realise that they do need winter tyres to drive more safely in the winter weather.

Another good point about Winter Tyres is the amount of testing that they carry out. These type of tyres are tested extensively in all the

Continental winter tyres
New Continental winter TS850

types of winter conditions that are possible. When they are satisfied about the quality of the product then they submit them for testing against their competitors tyres.

This can be seen with the new Conti Winter Contact TS 810 tyre. This tyre came out tops in recent winter tyre tests in Germany.

Continental Quiet Tyres-The Tesla Model S’s road noise reducing tyre tech. How does it work? – Evo

Continental Quiet Tyres

Continental Quiet Tyres

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.

Continental Winter TS850 Tyres: TS 850 Best Handling BMW on Snow

Continental Winter TS850 Tyres

Continental Winter TS850 Tyres

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.

Uniroyal Tyres Rainsport 3 A far better and improved tyre than the Rainsport 2

Uniroyal Tyres Rainsport 3

uniroyal tyres rainsport 3 New Improved; Uniroyal Tyres Rainsport 3

uniroyal tyres rainsport 3
Uniroyal Tyres Rainsport 3 with its asymmetric tread pattern.

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

Why Buy Continental Tyres

Why Buy Continental Tyres

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.

Continentals Dandelion tyres? A major breakthrough for a greener planet

Continentals Dandelion tyres

continentals dandelion tyres
Russian varieties of dandelions will be grown in vast quantities.

Continentals dandelion tyres

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.

continentals dandelion tyres
Dandelion tyre now on test

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.
