Tyre Inspection Imperative;Why do tyres need to regular inspections? This video explains what should be checked as part of a routine maintenance plan, and why.
In today’s fast and furious road and driving conditions.Hence, it has never been as important for you to check your tyres. As a result, on a regular basis .The banner title of “tyre inspection imperative”. Therefore, has never been a truer statement.
Many of our customers do not realise.What the effects of just one of their tyres. What the affect a loss of pressure can have on the handling of cars. We had a guy in the other week. Who openly admitted that he had a screw in his tyre.Of course, he was pumping it up every week for the past six weeks.
That is ridiculousness ? he thought he was doing the correct thing , but i wonder how long he had been travelling on the motorway with a tyre that only had half the pressure in it. In my opinion if i have ever had a car with a part deflated tyre, then the car never handles correctly and is difficult to control, constantly pulling to the side where the partially flat tyre is.
Tyre Inspection Imperative
Some of the worse culprits that i have seen have been van drivers.
They just do not correct the tyre pressures when their vans are fully loaded? in the worse cases you can see that the driver is struggling to keep the van in a straight line. In many cases the van driver must have a tyre blowout, just because of the heavy load combined with too little air pressure in the tyres. So the tyre inspection imperative, warning should be taken seriously at all times,and a safer journey will be the result.
A must watch video about the importance of checking your tyres? good visual aids have been added to make the video easy to understand, great for young people just starting to learn the ropes about driving and road safety including the very important tyres.
UK Tyre Safety;important to remember that correct tyre care and maintenance is essential for your road safety and tyre life.https://t.co/LfYlJzaPne
As a life time worker in the tyre industry. Then it seems crazy that we in the industry have to keep going on about Tyre Safety. Yet figures show that the amount of road accidents.Thus, due to tyre problems are rising.
One of the main factors has to be the sheer volume of traffic that we now have driving about on the roads of this relevantly small island. We only have to drive to work and back each day to realise how much the traffic levels have grown.
Although I only tend to write about UK Tyre Safety concerning cars and vans, then it should also include any other road vehicle, such as trucks and coaches.
According to accident figures then the main reason for your vehicle having an accident is because your tyres are below the legal limit, (very little tread). The current legal limit in most European countries is 1.6 mm from the centre of the tread outwards.
The chance of having an accident also increases significantly if the road that you are driving on is wet. You would think that this was common sense? But NO? Drivers still think it is a good idea to keep their tyres on until they have a last slither of rubber on the tread. It often also goes further than this and tyres are not replaced until they are completely “Bald”.

This now brings into play the use of winter tyres. It proves that winter tyres are a great benefit to drivers in all bad weather countries, including us here in the UK. Snow is not the main culprit of accident’s, but WET roads combined with little tread are the thing that drivers must learn about and put into use to make their cars a safer place in inclement driving conditions.

Tyresafe do great work promoting the important part that tyres play in road safety?
Are a large part of the future of the Continental tyres future. Of course, General were bought out primarily for their AT brand. Therefore, these tyres fulfilled a product brand in the Continental portfolio.
As expected, since that time, then General tyres have excelled in all parts of the tyre. Including the normal summer tyre range and the winter tyre range.
Because of this, we at Pellon Tyres, became General tyre dealers. Of course the tyres are made from the same materials as the Continental range. Therefore this gives the product a first class base, in which to compete in the very competitive world tyre market.

The Mumbai Apollo Tyres Rubber Football Pitch was inaugurated by Satish Sharma, president, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, Apollo Tyres and ex English footballer Bryan Robson.
This will be a truly great innovation?a football pitch made from recycled rubber.
This is not the first time that we here at Pellon Tyres have heard about the Apollo Tyres Rubber Football Pitch. When we first started to deal with Apollo tyres,(after been introduced to them by Point-S), we were asked if there was any junior football clubs who needed an all weather training pitch.
We immediately came up with a local Yorkshire junior football club. Called “Tingley Rangers”. Their football pitches were continuously water logged in the winter months. The pitches were not playable. Neither could the players train, because of the bad and water logged fields.
Apollo Tyres Rubber Football Pitch
However We were told about the Apollo Tyres Rubber Football Pitch, which was suitable for the training area at Tingley. This would have been great for the players to train on during the winter and the club was very excited at the prospect of training on an all weather pitch.
Time went by. So we kept in touch with Apollo representative. Concerning, when the pitch would be laid. We now know that we were being put off. By the giant tyre company. We were eventually told that the Apollo Tyres Rubber Football Pitch idea had been cancelled due to unknown reasons. The club were very disappointed and so was i.
We thought that the Rubber Football Pitch idea had been put to rest and i was surprised to see that a whole football pitch as been built in India?
Perhaps Apollo will be able to explain their change of mind?
As long as it is affordable it could be a great success. I believe that the Rubber Football Pitch, could be available for training pitches for amateur football clubs here in the UK, but when i dont know.
