All Neutral Tyres Stuff

An old customer recently came into our tyre depot in Halifax, Yorkshire, UK. Fred as we will call him. Bought a second hand car from a lady whos husband had recently passed away. The car had been stood in a garage for a few years. Consequently, the car was in good condition. The mileage was 47000 and the car was a Vauxhall Vectra.
The vectra was in immaculate condition. However, Fred only wanted the tyres checking. The car had two makes of tyres fitted. Accordingly, two were Michelin zx and the other two were both BF Goodrich. The tyres had tell tale “cracking”. Hence, on the bead and shoulder area of the tyres. Cracking is a tell tale sign of aging tyres?

Recycled Tyres-20+ Brilliant Ways To Reuse And Recycle Old Tyres-Things are getting better

Recycled Tyres

recycled tyres

recycled tyres are a huge headache when it comes to waste management and recycling, but there are clever DIY ways that each of us can reuse and recycle them and save them from entering the environment or taking up space in our landfills.

Some great images and uses for old tyres. I don’t think it is going to help get rid of the waste tyre mountains. But as they say “every little helps”.

Fortunately, more industrial recycling ways are now coming along. Recycled tyres are now shredded. Hence, and used in many parts of the world for things such as re-surfacing roads. The added rubber crumbs give the surface more flexibility. Naturally, a quieter ride for the vehicles that travel on them.

I genuinely believe.That the recycled tyres problem has improved greatly. Especially, over the past ten years or so. Companies that make a living out of recycled tyres. Thus, have sprung up all over the world. Shredded tyres used to make playgrounds. Accordingly, is a common site today. This makes a better and softer landing for the children to make. So and also uses recycled tyres and so it has a double barreled effect.

Recycled Tyres

One of the biggest things to come along in recent years is recycled mulch for landscaping and other things for the garden including, recycled tire planters and other ideas for recycled tyres planters pots, and many other ideas some of which are illustrated in the images in the attached article, they are well worth a look to give you some ideas.

I have even used some painted old waste tyres in my own garden and you would think that i would be sick of tyres when i get home? but they do look good in the right setting. There are many landscaping ideas using old tyres, and they are all worth looking at, some are great.

Honda Civic Winter Tyres-Having fun in snow on General Altimax Arctic winter tyres

Honda Civic Winter Tyres

Honda Civic Winter Tyres

I must confess, that the general Altimax winter tyres, was a new concept to me. hence, it is a tyre brand that I am just getting to grips with?

Here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, UK, we became General tyre retailers earlier in 2016. For this reason, I became disenfranchised with some of the other tyre companies.

If we are promote and sell a product, then we require a little loyalty. In my 40 years in the tyre business I have been let down by many tyre companies. They seem to accept that when you build their product base in a certain area. They then flood their tyres into your area. Thus breaking their promises.

The latest tyre company to do this was Yokohama tyres. We became dealers in the Halifax area. Accordingly, we sold thousands of their tyre products, including winter tyres. The next thing we knew. Yokohama were selling their tyres online at a highly discounted price.

We were not worried, because we also offer tyres online and could easily compete with the prices. However, it was the fact that a promise was broken that annoyed me. This brings me onto General tyres.

I was looking for another product to replace Yokohama. As a result we were approached by General tyres.

General  are Owned by Continental tyres and are therefore well respected, designed and manufactured, including the General Altimax Arctic.

Having some fun in my ’07 Civic LX riding on General Altimax Arctic snow tires. Awesome tyres, awesome price.
Let it snow!

Testing General Grabber-ATs on Land Rover Freelander 2 in the Snow of Scotland

Testing General Grabber

Testing new General Grabbers- ATs on Freelander 2, Eastern Highlands, Scotland.

Scotland is probably one of the best tyre testing areas of the UK. Hence, you can guarantee that snow will fall on the upper regions of the mountain ranges.

The General Grabber is famous for its many attributes. As expected, the first thing is that the tyres are not noisy on normal tarmac roads. This has surprised many drivers in the past.

This is because the grabbers have a chunky tread pattern, then our customers think that there will be a noise build up, say in summer when the roads are dry. However, this is not so?

Testing General Grabber

On road tests the General Grabber’s  have compared favourably with many of the”so called” road only tyres. Of course, these tyres are a little noisier. However, the sound difference is negligible. The Pirelli Scorpion verde, which is a road tyre comes it at 71DB. Compared to the grabber coming in at 74 DB. As a result, not much difference.

The reason behind the low noise level. Is the Highly-engineered acoustic tread pattern, designed by General tyres. This and the incredible gripping power in extreme weather conditions is why the Grabber is very popular. hence, amongst the SUV and 4X4 tyre fraternity.

Video shows the tread self-cleaning, with snow been thrown from the tread. The side profile of the tyre gives it superiority over other similar tyres, especially when on a steering wheel lock.
