All Winter Tyres Stuff

To my surprise, Winter tyres were still very popular in the field of retailing tyres. Of course this type of tyres were more expensive, but would wear better.So, and their casing quality was second to none. The casing is the tyre that has used all of the tread and then can be used for remoulding. The remoulding option would give the original purchase a second and third life. This is the reason that these tyres are very cost effective in the long run.

Winter Sottozero Tyres;This is the stuff that proves the benefits of fitting winter tyres. These top of the market sports saloons can really show off when

driven with the correct tyres for the job? in this case the Pirelli Sottozero 3 tyres. Italian flare car s using Italian flare tyres, a great combination. Pirelli also produce many other great winter tyre products including the one in the picture the Scorpion Ice winter tyre. The Winter Sottozero Tyres are a product that has been developed by Pirelli tyres to fit the super car range, including this Maserati. These cars are well equipped to speed down the German motorway system at 150 MPH and then drive up the snow covered mountain roads that lead to the ski resorts in Austria and Switzerland.

For the small to medium cars,then the Pirelli Cinturato All season is the tyre for them. This tyre can be left on the car the all year round. If however you live in a more northern area with heavy snow falls then i would suggest that you went for the Scorpio Ice and Snow tyre.

This tyre is a more aggressive tyre in the snow and ice of countries such as Norway and Sweden, who are likely to witness very harsh winters. These recommendations are of course aimed at the driver who is a complete Pirelli tyre fan. Other tyre makes are just as good but Pirelli have a very good name and a large following

The more up to date type of vehicle driver, would own a SUV vehicle. it is most advisable to fit all-weather pr winter tyres to these vehicle,as most of them are useless in bad weather,for these Pirelli advise the Scorpion Winter.

Winter Tyres Tweet-about the fact that he should have bought Winter Tyres

Winter Tyres Tweet

Winter Tyres Tweet,The moment when you realise you should have bought winter tyres #scottishwinter #winteriscoming https://t.co/Df8PNOBBbK

This is the problem? it is often too late if you did not get prepared for bad weather before the winter. Many drivers simply get caught out, when the snow arrives unexpectedly. This Winter Tyres Tweet shows the point.

I also think that it is the younger generation of drivers, who seam to be the ones caught out? I think it may be the “it will never happen to me scenario”. It is important to fit winter tyres before the onset of winter, then you know that you will be much safer, and winter can throw all it wants at you, at least you will stand a chance.

I am convinced that the tyre trade are not targeting the young drivers, when it comes to teaching about tyre safety. As the owner of Pellon Tyre in Halifax UK, i am finding it more common for young drivers, to be making tyre related mistakes, that only slight observations would correct.
This includes running on tyres that are completely bald and well over the legal limit. many young drivers including married and single people, do not appear to or just do not want know anything about

Winter tyres tweet

the car, especially the tyres?
This brings me back to winter tyres. Any driver who fits winter tyres on a regular basis, knows how much safer it is to drive about in winter weather. Even in heavy rain, the driver will feel much safer, with a good set of winter tyre fitted to their car. You can handle anything that an British winter can throw at you.
Some of these young drivers are driving about without any tread on their summer tyre, never mind winter tyres. Winter Tyres Tweet from these drivers are also the ones that take the risks on bends and speeding on our roads. This combined with bald tyres is a recipe for a disaster and unfortunately this is what happens. How often do we see a car on its roof in a ditch? too often, many would say.
So lets target the young drivers with more education about tyre safety and the use of winter tyres.

2016 Winter Tyres – Snow may be on its way in the UK

2016 Winter Tyres

2016 Winter Tyres

2016 Winter Tyres are developed to provide better grip and stopping distances than normal tyres at lower temperatures, find out more here…

 

After probably the mildest and wettest period it British weather since records were kept , it looks like it will be getting colder with some snow on the Horizon?

Winter tyres are also great in the wet conditions and can give the driver complete confidence when driving on wet and flooded roads. The winter tyres will get rid of all the water that the heavens can throw at us?

I always have winter tyres fitted to our vehicles and last week was a point in case. My daughter has recently moved into  a house in 2016 Winter TyresMytholmroyd, and i think you know what must be coming next?

She received a phone call to say that her home was flooded and she was desperate to get there. She spent Christmas at our house, but needed to inspect her house on Boxing day.

2016 Winter Tyres

We set off in the torrential rain. Only to find that all roads to Mytholmroyd and beyond were blocked by floods. We have collected many customers cars in the hills surrounding the Calder valley. Thus, I had pretty good knowledge. About how to get around the small single track roads.That would lead me down the Cragg Vale road to my daughters house.

What I did not count on was the torrents of water.Hence, that were teaming down these small steep valley roads. However, thanks to my trusty winter tyres. We ploughed on through the water and eventually made it to my daughters house.

I am writing this on the morning of the 1st of Jan 2016.Up to now this is only our second frost of the winter.

I believe the same has occurred in the USA . New York has had temperatures in the 20 deg C range, during December and i think that this is also some kind of a record,

Some friends of ours have recently gone skiing in Boston?

Well there was NO snow. Except for some artificial stuff. I am sure though that winter will return with vengeance, and all those who have bought winter tyres will not feel so bad when they are ploughing through snow with the greatest of confidence, in a car fitted with their winter tyres.

car chicks is a female friendly website that has been developed to be more informative to female drivers, therefor i have called my article car chicks tyres? although the title is about winter tyres, then i think this article includes the whole female garage scene.

Although this is a growing trend, (female web sites) I am not sure why their is a recent emphasis on tips for female drivers. In my opinion ALL drivers should be educated and advised when it comes to tyre care and anything else to do with car servicing and repairs.

It is good though that we do have many female drivers now. These

car chicks tyres

drivers are very confident, when visiting my garage. We do though have a female manager and this definitely gives our female customers more confidence when they have car problems or just need some new tyres.

Car Chicks Tyres

In the UK though the phrase “car chicks tyres”, would not be used. We do now though have various female friendly web sites that offer motoring advice to their members. The one i am thinking about is “Sheilas wheels” .This web site gives excellent advice to female drivers. I am sure that this gives the ladies more confidence when dealing with men in the garage atmosphere?

In my garage in Halifax UK we have larger ratio of female customers than to male customers, but you know? they are all treat with the same politeness and the same good experience as each other.

We try to make a stressful situation as comforting as possible for both the sexes.

I suppose if you must target one sex then so be it, but i dont agree with it.

SUV Winter Tyres or Four Wheel Drive-which are the best options for your SUV ?

SUV Winter Tyres

SUV Winter Tyres

SUV winter tyres make a huge difference

Hi this is one of those great videos that can explain many things at a glance. One of the great things about owning a tyre shop these days is the diversity of the car models and tyre types and sizes.

One of the surprises to me was the popularity of the SUV vehicles in the past five or six years?

suv winter tyres
This Land Rover Discovery has his SUV winter tyres fitted every year.

In fact my wife drives about in a Mitsubishi Outlander and loves to be driving above the normal car height (feeling of power perhaps?).

Many of these SUV’s are now driven by our lady customers, but for some reason they think they are drive anywhere vehicles.

the truth is that the SUV’s come out on summer tyres only ,in most cases. The drivers think that they can drive them in all kinds of weather conditions,even on snow.

Even the 4X4 drive vehicles are mainly on summer tyres?

Because the tyres are also of a large size and width it is even more important to fit SUV winter tyres.

This video shows exactly what i mean. Even the four wheel drive car was hopeless in snow when fitted with summer tyres. The cars where completely different when fitted with SUV winter tyres. The SUV winter tyres made a complete difference to the handling of the cars when tested on a snow covered ski slope.

SUV Winter Tyres have been proven to work very well in winter weather before i saw this excellent video. One of the vehicles that benefit very well by fitting  General SUV Winter Tyres, is the BMW range of SUV’s. These cars have massive tyres, which work great in summer, but their owners will tell you that they are hopeless in any kind of bad weather, especially snow and ice.

Do I need winter tyres ? Everything you need to know about winter tyres in 2015 – getreading

Do I need winter tyres

Do i need winter tyres

Do i need winter tyres ? Everything you need to know about cold weather tyres.

A great question.Hence, that I have tried to answer a million times. We all live very busy lives. Therefore, we do not like to be hampered or hindered in our daily dash.Thus, from home to work or home to school.

The roads in the UK are packed to the brim with our cars. Every family now owns two or three cars. We just cannot do without them?

On the other side of the coin. We all want safer cars and safer roads. Our families are very precious to us.

This in my opinion is where I answer the question “do I need winter tyres”.The answer is a big fat YES we do need winter tyres.

The past five or six winters here in the UK. Of course, have shown us all just how bad winter can be. As I am sat here writing this. The weather forecast is for snow to fall. In parts of the UK and this is usually in the Halifax area of Yorkshire, where my tyre business is.

Do I need winter tyres

A good point to remember is that  a winter performs much better when the temperature drops to bellow 7 degrees C. The tyre stays more flexible, because of certain additives in the tyres compound and enables the tyre to grip much better in cold winter weather, This makes winter tyres much safer to drive on in the winter time.

My winter tyre business has built up because of “word of mouth” from the customers that have bought winter tyres in the past, and have spread the word, about how good the really are.

To summarise winter tyres are a major safety asset for your family and yourself.

Winter Tyres Safety Tools-Should I buy winter tyres? – Telegraph.co.uk

Winter Tyres Safety Tools

Winter Tyres Safety Tools

Winter Tyres Safety Tools

As the temperature drops and thoughts turn to winter, many buyers will be wondering once again whether it’s worth investing in Winter Tyres Safety. Here’s our guide.

This is a good article written with some good sense?

In my opinion the Winter Tyres Safety debate should be non existent. Wherever there is going to be a chance of bad weather. So this includes snow, ice and rain. Of course, winter tyres are one of the biggest safety improvements. Hence that you should make for your car and your family.

In a recent article. I explained how some Canadian insurance companies were giving a discount bonus. Thus, to drivers who were sensible enough to fit Winter Tyres Safety to their cars.

Winter Tyres Safety Tools- Insurance companies know when they are on a winner?

Another recent development that i am not too sure about is the so called “all-weather” tyres that are now appearing on the tyre market. Tyres such as the one in the image, the vredestein Quatrac, have been around for years now and if they were going to be a better option for the genuine winter tyre then the Winter Tyres Safety would have gone out of existence?

I would still recommend that my customers fit a genuine winter tyre and not an all round summer and winter tyre, they do perform as well

Snow ploughs will be a common site shortly as winter comes sneaking in?

Winter Tyres Safety Tools in winter, its as simple as that.

In my opinion Winter Tyres Safety is not an issue with arguments any more. There are of course people who just cannot afford them. This is fine, but it may just be worth making a small sacrifice and divert e little money away from other less important things, to be able to afford some winter tyres.

This will ensure that you will be safer if winter strikes with vengeance, and you get caught out in lets say a less hospitable situation without any Winter Tyres Safety, to get you out of trouble.

We at pellon Tyres are now stocking General winter tyres

SHOCK WEATHER WARNING: Coldest winter for 50 YEARS set to bring MONTHS of heavy snow to UK

SHOCK WEATHER

BRITAIN is facing the most savage winter in more than 50 years with months of shock weather will bring heavy snowfall and bitter Arctic winds set to bring the country to a total standstill.

The Express, a UK daily newspaper started to put out these shock weather warnings a couple of years ago,

I though they were scare mongering for some unknown reason. The thing that surprised me was that they began to get accurate with their forecasts. Here in the Yorkshire area of the UK we began to have shock weather conditions with very heavy snow and low temperatures.

I was ecstatic, because we sell winter tyres and car batteries, we could not have wished for nicer weather.

It was just right, drivers could just about get about in their cars, and

shock weather
This snow fell in November a couple of years ago catching many drivers off their guard.

they soon found that with winter tyres fitted, then the job got much easier to get about our very hilly countryside.

Now as the winter of 2015 approaches we will be watching out for another bad winter that the Express paper has already predicted in this article.

We also know that the weather people are predicting an El-Nino weather effect which brings rally cold weather to the UK, so hold on to your hats we could be in for a rough ride this winter.Oh and don’t forget your winter tyres?

This time of year is also very busy with our wise customers having their cars serviced. After the schools summer holiday break, then some drivers look to prepare their cars for the winter. We are already selling tyres for winter use . One tyre that is already looking popular is the Michelin CrossClimate tyres. We fitted a set of CrossClimate on a customers Renault last Saturday.
