Michelin Tyres Plc fears over proposed energy cost rises – BBC News

Michelin Tyres Plc

A major employer in Northern Ireland says its business is threatened by proposed rises in energy costs to fund grants for onshore wind farms.

This is exactly the news that the people in Northern Ireland,or any other part of the UK want to hear?

Michelin Tyres Plc, who are based in Ballymena, County Antrim, are concerned about the financial impact the subsidies that they may have to pay for wind turbines,are having on its energy bills.

This is exactly the opposite as to what the UK government should be thinking about. They are trying to place increasing burdens on UK businesses in the form of green taxes .

Even small businesses have to pay taxes on their fuel bills, which are supposed to go towards paying for greener energy in the future, but i doubt this very much.

it is the same scenario as the car taxes that we pay?They were supposed to go into road building and improvements, but we all know that they do not.

My warning to the legislators is to take notice of what these large employers are saying?

Michelin tyres plc will not think twice about pulling out of northern Ireland, i believe that they received massive subsidies, to move there in the first place.

Anything that affects the Michelin tyres prices, will give them an excuse to move to a cheaper tyre producing country.

So think twice Northern Ireland?

BMW Winter tyres: Are they worth it? We certainly think that they are a major road safety improvement.

Snow, ice and sub-zero temperatures bring their own unique motoring issues. Specially developed winter tyres give added security when the temperatures dip, but running an alternative set of rubber has traditionally been considered a cost too far by many British drivers, who don’t think UK winters are harsh enough […]

Hope you noticed that I used the word safety in the post title. Of course, as the owner of Pellon Tyres in Halifax Yorkshire, I genuinely believe in what I say. Over the years I have preached to my customers the benefits of fitting winter tyres to their cars.

I must admit though that things are getting better, thanks to great articles like this. Modern cars are getting faster and have excellent braking systems. They are however heavy vehicles, which can cause them to skid and lose grip in wet and snowy weather.

I take the BMW winter tyres as an example. However, the owners of these cars seem reluctant to part with their cash and need winter tyres as much as any other brand and model of car.

However, the range of winter tyres available is bigger than ever, and UK consumers are finally realising that their benefits far outweigh their cost. That’s because these products offer added grip and stability even in less-than-harsh conditions, which means they can easily be used on wet roads whenever the temperature falls below 7 degrees Celsius.

Winter tyres are imperative, if you are to travel up the mountains to the ski resorts.

This looks at winter tyres from the French angle. hence, this is most applicable to the Britains that will taking their annual winter vacation to the snow resort in the French Alps.

Millions take the pilgrimage, year after year. Winter tyres are imperative, if you are to travel up the mountains to the ski resorts.

WITH the first of the winter snows seeing ski stations opening for the November 11 holiday weekend, drivers are also having to think about winter tyres and whether to use snow chains.

There is a mind-boggling variety of options – winter/snow tyres, ice tyres, studded tyres or the choice between chains or snow socks – but the basic decision depends on where you live.

Of course you will require more than winter tyres. In all cases, drivers should stock up on de-icing accessories and take warm clothes, gloves, blankets, water and food in case they break down. A fluorescent vest and a warning triangle are already compulsory.

goodyear tyre and rubber company workers

goodyear tyre and rubber company workers, became like a family for many of the people who worked in the iconic factory.

A great article. Thus, about the sad demise. Therefore, and closure of the remaining part of the Goodyear tyre and rubber company. Sadly, in Wolverhampton UK.

Many of the Goodyear tyre and rubber company workers, Were recent immigrants and have worked at the tyre factory all their lives. I remember when i visited the factory. Hence, on a number of occasions.Naturally, how friendly and family oriented. Hence, the giant tyre company employees were.

They were always willing to help. So with any questions and to talk to you. Thus, about things in general. Especially tyres.

These people will now become a small part of the Goodyear tyres history. Therefore, and will fade away into the past. Whilst another part of the world will gain by their demise? Very sad.

Goodyear tyre and rubber company workers have always been a close knit community all through the Goodyear rubber company history. I can always remember the warm welcome that i received as a total stranger, every time i visited the Goodyear tyres UK, plant in Wolverhampton, UK.

I once had to attend a six week training course, in which i had to visit all parts of the factory, to learn about the different methods of tyre production and about the materials that were used to make tyre out of.

We were always made to feel at home all through our stay. The training staff were also extremely friendly and you could sense that most of the people who worked there knew each other and most were on first name terms, although this was a massive company, employing thousands of people from the near by Birmingham area.

Outlaw Unsafe Tyres-New.Jersey. Assembly passes used tyre bill

Outlaw Unsafe Tyres

Outlaw Unsafe Tyres;   New Jersey state seal TRENTON, N.J. (Nov. 22, 2016) — The New Jersey Assembly has passed legislation to prohibit the sale of “unsafe” used tires that the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) — a supporter of the legislation — said pose a risk to New Jersey motorists and the public. […]

N.J. Assembly passes used tire bill

This is great news for the tyre industry all over the world. Of course, it is just a start, but never the less small beginnings have lead to bigger things in the past. Part worn tyre shops have been opening up all over the world. Here in the UK they are all over the place. Especially, we have seen a huge rise in high immigration areas. The people that sell these tyres have no respect for the law, that’s if they know that there is one?

However, we must take onboard the fact that New Jersey have now banned the sale of these potentially dangerous part worn tyres. This is indeed a good day for the industry and we must spread the word to other authorities.  Hence, I do believe that local authorities have been turning a blind eye. Thus, to the fact that these deadly tyres are on sale in multiple locations.

Another point that has come to light. Accordingly, is the number of taxis that fit these deadly tyres to their taxi cars. This act is mad and should be stopped before a member of the public gets injured or even killed.
