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.

Thus, these are makes that we are very familiar with. Naturally, these are brands that our customers have fitted and are tried and tested.

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.

Canada Weather Tough Tyres

In my opinion this is advice from a country that has one of the toughest winter weathers in the world. For this reason, if the Canadians can’t cope with winter then nobody can.

As a tyre retailer in Halifax Yorkshire, UK. I sometimes envy the amount of snow that Canada can get in most winters.

However, the same principles apply. As a result, do you know how to drive your vehicle the correct way in winter conditions? The following words of advice  could actually save you many problems when you are out on the road. Especially in sub zero winter snowy weather.

Winter tyre growth expected for Belgium

This week will see the start of colder night in some parts of Europe. The prediction is that the El Niño weather system will start again this year and affect the world’s climate and the Winter tyre market . Here in the UK it affects our winter temperatures and we suffer periods of very cold weather which bring us snow and ice.

Car drivers have in the past been caught out by these sudden snow storms and even whole motorways (M11) have been cut off with thousands of cars stranded with their summer tyres skidding and getting their cars stuck.

In my opinion the UK has woke up to our winters and we have seen a big surge of drivers fitting winter tyres to their cars and a large increase in the Winter tyre market . This has been a good move and now like the UK drivers in Belgium are waking up to the idea of fitting winter tyres.

Winter tyres are called all sorts of names, including snow tyres, all-season tyres and cold weather tyres. In general these tyres do the

same job and are most beneficial to drivers in winter time.

Today’s winter tyres are a different animal to the ones when I first started in the tyre industry. Early winter tyres were virtually a summer tyre casing fitted out with a very tread pattern (similar to my image of an early Firestone winter tyre) new tyres for winter use have been developed through the tyre companies involvement in motorsport. Especially rallying, where tyres needed to grip in very bad conditions and bad weather.

The whole tyre structure had to be developed to give modern cars the ride that they were used to. This meant more flexible casings in low temperatures. Silica was going to be the answer? It enabled tyres to flex more in lower temperatures. This combined with modern tread pattern design, brought out new winter tyre designs, which performed very well on new car designs such  as SUV’s and luxury saloons.

Belgium like all the other European countries is no exception to the rules and the winter tyre market is expected to grow as safety conscious motorists lower their risks to bad winter weather.

The new revolution will be an improvement in the all-weather tyre. If these are fitted to your car then there will no need to fit winter tyres. These tyres will be fitted all the year round. I feel that this will be the main aim of the tyre companies in future. The trend has already been started with the excellent Michelin CrossClimate. This tyre is already proving to be popular and only time will tell, whether this type of tyre will replace the traditional winter tyres.

Do winter tyres work? A good look at Winter Tyres by Autocar.co.uk

Do winter tyres work

Winter Tyres Safety Tools

Do winter tyres work

So, my answer to that would be definite yes ! After working in the tyre industry now for 40 years, I think I am qualified to give the answer.

Not just “do winter tyres work” but in my opinion the are now essential !what do I mean!

First thing to remember is the massive increase in traffic volumes on our roads. Therefore having the power to stop your vehicle is crucially essential. I personally fit winter tyres on all my vehicles. Indeed we leave winter tyres on our vans all the year round. Including the Ford transit van that I often drive about in.

Vans are a massive part of our traffic

With the increase in van traffic then good tyres are important. Many vans do carry some weight. As a result we have all been in situations when we have had to brake very hard. So, sometimes you only have to look away for a few seconds when the traffic in front has stopped.

This coupled with a wet or slippy road can be the difference between stopping an having an accident. The difference can be your tyres. In my experience then winter tyres have saved me on winter roads several times.

And I dont just mean getting out of snow. Although they do help in that situation. Consequently, winter tyres can be the difference to whether you actually stop the van or not.

Although I say “van” then its just as important for car drivers ! with winter tyres fitted you know that your are in a safer driving environment. Believe me when I say that they will get you out of trouble several times in an average winter.

So, van drivers mark my word ! you wont regret fitting a set of winter tyres and keeping them on all year round.

Winter tyres versus 4×4 tyres-Good solid advice about Snow tyres- tested by autocar.co.uk

Winter tyres versus 4×4 tyres

Winter tyres versus 4x4 tyres

Winter tyres versus 4×4 tyres

This has always been a good talking point. However ,to me it is a no brainer. So, if you need tyres and winter is approaching. Then you must consider all-weather tyres or winter tyres.

Winter here in the UK can last as long as 5 months. Of course it has been known to snow in April and even May. So the investment will be well worth it!

Most compelling evidence to me is the great reports we have from customers who have had winter tyres fitted. It is important to realise the safety features that winter tyres have built into them.

Firstly, the tread is a special design

Tread is designed to be more tougher. These tyres look aggressive and actually they need to be! Secondly comes the actual compounds that the tyres are made of. Of course these days “silica” is a great new additive to give tyre more flexibility in cold weather.

Winter tyres do not go hard when the temperature drops below 7 degrees. Sipes are the next great benefit! these are all the tiny slits in almost all winter tyre designs. Significantly, sipes are the thing that clears away the water, slush and snow as you are driving along.

This combined with the tread pattern helps clear away the dreaded winter weather that comes along every year. In my opinion November is the best time to fit your winter tyres. Here in Halifax we are a 1000 feet above sea level and the first snow usually falls in November.

So, if you live in a hilly area then winter tyres are for you. If am sure that you wont be disappointment ?

Winter Tyres Insurance Discounts-Ontario: car insurance discounts for snow tires

Winter Tyres Insurance Discounts

ETOBICOKE, Ontario (Dec. 16, 2016) — The Ontario provincial government has mandated that companies that sell car insurance in Ontario offer their customers discounts for using winter tires.

Winter Tyres Insurance Discounts

This is something that I have written about in the past. Of course, we all know that winter tyres are much safer for drivers. Hence in the long dark winter days.

Canadian insurance companies have taken up this. Naturally, by offering motorists that fit winter tyres. Accordingly, a discount on their insurance policy. Of course, I think this is an idea that could be carried to the UK.

Winter tyres are safer, we all know that. Therefore it would give drivers an incentive of cheaper insurance if they fit winter tyres. A win/win situation.

The winter tire discount mandate — which took effect Jan. 1, 2016 — is one of several ways the province is seeking to help reduce insurance costs for Ontario’s 10 million drivers, according to Yvan Baker, the Parliamentary assistant to Minister of Finance Charles Sousa.

Winter Tyres Explanation

Winter Tyres Explanation

Many of our past winters has produced scenes of chaos on the UK roads. As a result, making dangerous driving conditions. Hence, bringing the UK roads to a complete standstill. Of course, other European tyre markets it becomes a natural thing. Thus, to fit winter tyres. Indeed, it is now considered an essential part of their driving routine.

Of course to change from summer to winter tyres. As a result, Europian drivers are to be much safer when driving in severe winter weather. As expected,   several European countries which include Sweden, Austria and Germany recognise the safety benefits of fitting winter tyres onto their vehicles.

Therefore, these countries have introduced motoring laws that make it compulsory to fit winter tyres at certain times of the year. Of course, I am not sure that this will happen here in the UK. However, drivers are becoming more aware of the winter tyre safety factor.

Goodyear’s Winter Tyre range has been developed specifically with your safety in mind. They are designed to perform not just in ice and snow, but at temperatures of 7 degrees or below. They offer better responsiveness and braking distances due to a softer compound than Summer Tyres.

Winter Auto Maintenance Checklist-Winter time is now with us -5C today in Yorkshire

Wow!! just taken my son Matthew to work and it is -5C outside. However, I am rubbing my hands a little this morning.Because firstly we are open for the first time after the Christmas break. Of course, secondly, we sell and fit car batteries.

While I am on about batteries. Hence, I could not believe the Halfords TV advert. Hence they were saying in the ad that they would fit a car battery(from them of course) for £10 only.

Consequently, I could not believe my ears? A similar quality battery from Pellon Tyres would cost much less than Halfords and we will fit the battery FREE of charge for you. So, we all know and understand the word”PROFIT”, but charging a £10 fitting fee takes the pre-vapre variable Micky.

With winter weather comes winter driving. Whether you’re reading this in a snowstorm or it’s still balmy outside, getting prepared for winter is a right-now job. While safety is an important consideration all year long, there are certainly some auto maintenance jobs and safety checks that are specific to chilled air and winter driving that are a good idea to check into before we’re knee deep in the season.

Winter Auto Maintenance

To carry on. This really is the time when the bad weather can catch you out. Please make sure that your battery is in good condition. Also check your levels.Including, you window washer bottle. Please make sure that you have put some de-icer in the water. Fit winter tyres if you want to be a safer driver in the possible ice and snow fall.

make sure that you have cleaned all the frost from your screen and side windows before setting off on a journey. Naturally, you should check your lights and replace any dud bulbs.

Global Winter Tyre Market 2016

The winter tyre market has now become a very important part of all the major tyre company portfolios. Hence, different compounds and manufacturing materials, have helped make winter tyres a much safer and quieter product.

Thus, the development of larger cars and new car concepts. Of course, such as the SUV and Crossover cars. Therefore, have also played a large part in winter tyre development.

Of course, I am pleased to say that the winter tyre revolution has not passed us by here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, UK. Our customers have taken in all the advice that have been given out by the tyre press. Including, my very own blogs.

Accordingly, I decided to open up a “Tyre Hotel”. This enables our customers to store their summer and winter tyres at my tyre shop in Halifax. Of course, it became so popular that we are now up to our limit with storage space.

The main explosion of our winter tyre sales came from word of mouth. Thereby, we decided to open the winter tyre hotel. It is important that we record all the tyre sizes and customer names. Hence, this ensures that we do not get any mix-ups when the customers come to have their tyre changed over.
