Why Wheel Alignment Matters

To ensure a car drives safely, efficiently and behaves as the vehicle manufacturer intended. So, it’s important that your vehicles  wheels are correctly aligned.

However, through everyday driving, or factors such as hitting a kerb or a pothole, the wheels can become misaligned, bringing a host of tyre related problems.

This brings me onto a subject about speed bumps?

Has anyone traveled to France recently ? well just like their enthusiasm about roundabouts. France has gone mad with the installation of massive speed bumps Especially when entering and leaving towns and villages.

Apparently many of these are illegal, but it sure means good business for the local garages who offer wheel alignment to the poor motorists who have to face these monstrous speed bumps on a regular basis.

Why Wheel Alignment Matters

British drivers be aware when visiting France ?

So please find this post a warning for drivers visiting France. Consequently, who are not aware of the size of these things. So, drive over them at a very slow speed. Especially when driving you vehicle, in the dark.

MotoGPMotoGP drops Michelin\'s new intermediate tyre for 2017

Michelin motorcycle tyres are not one of my fortais. In fact this is one of my weaknesses as a tyre retailer for forty years. For this reason, I decided to add more and more bike tyre articles on my blogs. There are millions of motorbiked here in the UK. Naturally, all fitted with at least two wheels.

Of course, we used to fit motor bike tyres, but only on the smaller bikes. The only bike tyres that we fit are on the wheels that have been removed. It is the removing of the bike wheels that has always troubled us. Therefore, if we fitted the wheels incorrectly. the the circumstances could be fatal.

So many of us stayed clear of the motorcycle tyre scene.

Exclusive Pirelli tyre supply

Could it be that Pirelli, are responding to the Michelin attempt of rejoining F1 racing.

Pirelli tyres, are to supply the GT4 European Series.Hence, this series is split into two parts. As a result, this is now split into the Northern Cup and Southern Cup. Hence, then competing for an overall title.

The race series is organised and promoted by SRO. The SRO are also running the Blancpain GT Series. Therefore the tyre supplier, Pirelli has completed a long-term tyre supply agreement.

As a result, Pirelli first supplied the GT4 European Series Northern Cup early on this year. The giant (now chinese owned) tyre company say that it is very happy to  renew the agreement into the future.

While the Blancpain GT Series. Uses GT3 cars from the world’s leading sports car manufacturers. So the European GT4 series (and, by extension, a number of the cars on the French GT Championship) use slightly less powerful. SRO-homologated GT4-specification cars.Thus in order to open up the competition. Hence, to as many drivers as possible and form a clear ladder of talent.

Goodyear All-Season Tyres

Just a month ago weather experts from some of the British tabloids, were telling us all that we could expect the coldest winter in six years.

To be fair, none of us really know what theBritish weather could throw at us over the coming weeks. Therefore it could rain and give us flooding, similar to last December. When many parts of my beloved Yorkshire were flooded. So, on the other hand, we could have a cold spell and blizzards.

This is one of the things that makes living in the UK so exciting. But this uncertainty plays into the hands of Goodyear and the other large tyre companies. Hence, as it gears up to celebrate its introduction of the first all-season tyre 30 years ago.

Whilst other tyre manufacturers have introduced their own all season variants. Goodyear’s current Vector range continues to win plaudits in independent tests and from OEM manufacturers, as shown in the latest all-season test carried out by leading English magazine ‘Auto Express’, where Goodyear has taken the crown once again with the Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 tyre.
