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 tyres versus Summer tyres – Michelin compare the two types of tyres

Winter tyres versus Summer tyres

Winter tyres versus Summer tyres; We take you on a journey of discovery to understand the difference between winter and summer tyres in all road usage conditions. Michelin, in my opinion, are the world leaders in tyre design and development. They are experts in compounds and know exactly what the car market is looking for in tyre technology.

Worn Dunlop winter tyres- UK test and basic review of the benefits of using winter tyres

Worn Dunlop winter tyres

Worn Dunlop winter tyres; Driving in light to medium winter road conditions to test the capabilities of Dunlop Winter Sport 3D tyres. There is still about 3mm of Sips and a further 2-3mm of tyre depth beyond that marker on the front tyres after over a year of driving. An excess of 10,000 miles has been covered in that time.

This road test is one of the best ones that i have seen. It shows the benefits of fitting winter tyres, that when changed in November, can last for three or four years.

Here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, UK, we operate a tyre-hotel. This was an experiment by our boss Eric Roberts about five years ago. We had heard about this operating in the Nordic countries. I thought that it could work in the UK, and so gave it a go.

It has been so successful that we are completely full at the moment, but we are creating some more space for the future. Customers can have their summer and winter tyres exchanged at the correct times and we will do all the work for them.

Our customers will then get the full use of their winter tyres, right down to the last millimetre. This video shows that even worn winter tyres are worth using.

Porsche Winter tyres: enjoy your Porsche year-round try winter tyres

Porsche Winter tyres

Porsche Winter tyres;  In cold or wet conditions, summer tyres are no longer optimal equipment for your Porsche.

For more information on Porsche winter tyres, contact your local Tyre Centre.

Pellon Tyres in Halifax UK offer a great variety of winter tyres that are suitable to fit the Porsche family. The best way to describe the Type of person is this? They will live in Germany and have a top job, probably at the German stock exchange.

They will drive about on summer tyres in the summer holiday season, probably driving down to Greece, for their summer holidays. In winter they will go skiing in Austria and the Alps.

To do this they will have to fit a set of Porsche winter tyres. They will drive down the Autobahn at well over 100MPH and then climb the steep snow covered mountains to the ski resorts.

Tire Rack Tire Test – Winter/Snow vs. All-Season vs. Summer Tires on Ice

Tire Rack Tire Test

Tire Rack Tire Test;  Firstly, we compared all-season and winter/snow tire performance on our snowy test track. Now watch as Tire Rack compares the difference between winter/snow tires, all-season tires and summer tires by evaluating acceleration, stopping and cornering capabilities — this time using an ice rink as our test track.

My own opinion is that the tougher the climate where you live then the tougher the type of tyres that you should fit. Also, the further north that you drive in ,then the colder it usually is. Therefore you should fit the winter tyres.

In places like Spain or Portugal then i think that the all-weather tyres will be the best option. These tyres are excellent in heavy rain storms and also snow or sleet showers. If you live in a mountainous area then snow tyres will be the order of the day.

We are in a similar position here in Halifax in the UK. Some winters we experience heavy snow and other winters practically no snow at all. To be on the safe side we do recommend that our clients fit winter tyres in November at the beginning of the winter driving period.

There is no doubt that all-weather tyres are getting more and more popular. In my opinion, many parts of the UK would be better fitting the all-weather tyres. Flat areas, such as Lincolnshire, would not require winter tyres. All-weather tyres would be a much better option due to the long road stretches and then leading to a sharp bend.

All-weather tyres would cope much better in really wet winter weather, that the standard summer tyres.

Winter Sottozero Tyres -Maserati in the snow shows off the Pirelli’s

Winter Sottozero Tyres

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.
