The Caravan Season is upon us...

It may only be the first week of March but at Hometyre we are already receiving plenty of enquiries from both new and existing customers regarding caravan/motorhome tyres from all of those owners out there gearing up for the summer months. Easter Bank Holiday weekend is coming around fast, falling early this year with Good Friday on 25th March, this weekend often marks the start of the new season for many caravan owners.

Mobile tyre fitting is particularly handy for caravan/motorhome owners, with the ease of having Hometyre come out to your home the hassle of manoeuvring a large vehicle to a static site to have your tyres checked can be eliminated. The Caravan Club state the importance of checking the date of manufacture of your tyres, once the tyre reaches 5 years in age cracks begin to appear on the sidewall. Even if your caravan tyres appear to have sufficient tread they may still be unsafe, for more information on checking your tyres please click here.

Caravan_tyres_Hometyre

Another safety precaution becoming more popular amongst caravan/motorhome owners is the fitting of TYRON bands, this product prevents the tyre from coming off the wheel in the event of a puncture or blow out. Fitting TYRON bands to your caravan allows both time to travel to a safe stopping location whilst also preventing any serious accidents by allowing the driver to have more control and increased handling following a fatal blow out.

If you are interested in having TYRON bands fitted to your caravan or motorhome in time for the season, or simply want your tyres checking for peace of mind, call Hometyre on 0800 783 9310 to book an appointment with your local technician at your preferred location at a time that suits you!

F1 bosses thrive for more excitement!

F1 bosses have announced they have asked Pirelli to produce a tyre that drivers will be able to push to the limit in 2017. The current tyres degrade too quickly for drivers to be able to race flat out, it has been announced that the FIA have spoken with Pirelli and requested a tyre which will allow drivers to push harder for longer. The main reason behind the demand for faster tyres is because bosses are thriving to make the sport more exciting, the plans for tyre developments are said to increase lap times by as much as five seconds.

Pirelli_F1

F1 have highlighted various issues with the current tyres, the tyres begin to lose performance above a certain temperature and never recover that loss, this results in drivers often racing below the limit in order to manage the tyres in order for them to gain the best race time possible. This is something drivers have never been happy with, however following two 200mph tyre failures at the Belgian Grand Prix they have called for something to be changed.

The FIA plans to provide full information to Pirelli regarding requirements for the tyres performance by the end of March, for now Pirelli has been given introductory information about the performance the cars are expected to have in 2017, work can now begin on an initial tyre design resulting in those all important faster lap times.

Are you affected?

Goodyear Dunlop have announced an immediate product recall of ALL Dunlop Sportmaxx GT summer tyres in the size 255/40ZR19 100Y XL with the DOT code (Date of manufacture) reading DN5W JC1R 3715 or DN5W JC1R 3815. The company have said with confidence that no other sizes have been affected in this range along with no other products or brands.

This product recall is due to the use of an incorrect tread compound, resulting in a major reduction of the tyre's wet grip abilities which arises a road safety risk for all motorists with these tyres. If you have any doubt regarding whether you have these fitted to your car, it is very important to check your tyres, if you find you have the Dunlop Sport Maxx GT mentioned above please avoid driving in wet road conditions and contact us at Hometyre.

We will be able to come out to your home or work address to replace your tyres and ensure you are as safe as possible on the roads. Fortunately, we are positive this product recall will not affect any of our existing customers, however if you have doubts regarding the condition of your existing tyres, please contact us on 0800 783 9310 to arrange an appointment with your local technician at a time that suits you.

Nokian iLine - A Greener Tyre

Nokian has launched its latest summer tyre, the iLine, this tyre is aimed mostly at smaller vehicles and medium-sized family cars. There are many key benefits following the design and engineering behind this new tyre, one of which is improvements towards preventing aquaplaning. Although we are heading into the summer, we live in the UK and unfortunately there is bound to still be a lot of rain heading our way, which can lead to aquaplaning.

Aquaplaning occurs when traction is lost between the tyre and the road surface caused by a sheet of water, control of the vehicle is lost which can be incredibly dangerous. The new technology by Nokian uses 'Venturi Grooves' on the inner and outer shoulders, these contoured grooves are located between the tread blocks and work to disperse a larger amount of water. Another contributing factor is the asymmetrical inside-outside tread pattern, also working to remove water between the tyre and the driving surface at a faster rate, leading to that all important reduction in chances of aquaplaning resulting in keeping you and your passengers safer on wet roads.

There is a great focus on aquaplaning with the iLine, as well as the above technology, Nokian have also introduced a water drop symbol as an indicator into the tread to make you, as a driver, aware of the risks. Once the tread reaches 4mm the water drop symbol disappears, indicating the risks of aquaplaning are increased as the tyres wear below this point.

NOKIAN_iLine

Nokian also show improvements towards fuel efficiency due to the low rolling resistance, this is possible due to the hemispherical, golf ball-like indentations on the walls of the longitudinal ribs controlling the air flow of the tyre. As well as reducing air resistance, the 'Silent Groove' Design also reduces noise levels both inside and outside the vehicle, allowing driving to be enjoyably quiet.

The iLine tyre also shows increased durability, this is due to the pine oil added to the silica tread compound, this works to reduce the temperature of the rubber compound therefore reducing the friction caused by inter-molecular movement. Nokian claim this allows the iLine to last much longer, consume less fuel, roll lighter and minimise harmful emissions.

This new innovation from Nokian will be available in a wide range of sizes from spring 2016, for more information on the iLine and other tyres available from Nokain, please call our friendly team on 0800 783 9310 or visit our website to see the large range of other brands we have available at Hometyre.

New tyre for Summer 2016 - Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3

Goodyear have recently announced the arrival of their new summer tyre, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, this new performance tyre has a reduction in braking distances on both wet and dry roads. These reductions are around 2.6 metres shorter in wet braking and 1.3 metres shorter in dry braking compared to the average of other well known premium tyres. The new grip booster compound ensures grip to the road surface is greater, again contributing to those all important improved braking distances.

Goodyear_Eagle_F1_Asymmetric_3

As well as offering these impressive steps towards shorter braking distances, the new reinforced construction technology shows improvements towards handling of the vehicle, cornering performance, fuel efficiency and tread wear.

This tyre is available in select sizes now, with the majority of sizes are predicted to be on sale in March 2016. For more information or to see if we are able to supply your size in the new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, please call us on 0800 783 9310.

Continental TS860 - an innovation for Winter Tyres

The Continental Winter Contact TS850 has been dominating the winter tyre market over previous years, coming out on top in just under 50 comparative tests run by the European trade press, automobile clubs and consumer organisations.

Continental have developed the Winter Contact TS860, which is proving to show some next level improvements on the TS850. Braking distances are 4% shorter on ice and 5% shorter on wet and wintry roads. There are also improvements towards handling, grip and general ride quality. These positive steps forward are a combination of a new tread compound put together with a newly developed tread design. The 'Cool Chili' compound has a highly flexible polymer matrix and a high proportion of silica, this reduces braking distances and shows noticeable improvement in traction on wet and wintry road surfaces. This compound is an all rounder and maintains its flexibility even at low winter temperatures, enabling shorter braking distances on wet, cold, icy and snow-covered roads.

Winter Contact TS860_1

As well as the 'Cool Chili' compound, the TS860 has also been designed with 'Liquid Layer Drainage', this basically means that when you brake on an icy road, a film of water is created under the tread, this reduces the tyre's contact with the road. Combined with an additional drainage channel in the tread, this allows the water to drain away much faster, leading to that all important shorter braking distance in cold weather.

Continental are expected to release the new Winter Contact TS860 to retail outlets from autumn 2016, until then, you can view our range of Continental tyres, along with many other premium brands available to you, by clicking here and entering your tyre size. If you would rather speak to a member of our team, just call us on 0800 783 9310 and we will be more than happy to help!

The Nightmare of Potholes

At this time of year, potholes are appearing much more often on our roads in the UK. Potholes are created when water seeps into the underlying structure via cracks in the road surface, in the winter this water expands when it freezes, causing the gravel underneath to move. When the weather starts to get warmer and the water melts, a hole is left under the road surface and eventually caves in from the pressure of various vehicles repeatedly driving over it.

Pothole_1

Potholes are one of the biggest pains for many UK motorists, I'm sure you would agree! Here at Hometyre we take multiple calls a day from unfortunate drivers who have hit one and suffered a flat tyre. Although approximately 60% of punctured tyres can be repaired, it is often likely that the damage caused by a pothole can be too severe to carry out a repair to the British BSAU159 standards. For more information on puncture repairs, click here.

As well as causing tyre failures, potholes can also knock your tracking out. If you hit a pothole, ensure you pull over and inspect your tyres for any signs of damage, if your tyres appear to be fine but once you begin driving again your steering wheel is vibrating or pulling to one side it is definitely worth getting your wheel alignment (tracking) checked. If the tracking on your vehicle has become misaligned it can cause uneven and premature wear to your tyres over time, which means they will need replacing much sooner. It can also increase rolling resistance which can lead to higher fuel consumption, and nobody wants to be spending more than they have to on filling up their vehicle! For more information on wheel alignment please click here.

If you suffer a puncture or a blow out and would like us to come out to your location to asses the damage, please call us on 0800 783 9310. We always try to repair a puncture if possible, however if it's not repairable, at Hometyre we always ensure we have a replacement tyre on board with us so we can get you back on the road!

Benefits of Winter Tyres

wintertyres_blog

December 2015 was one of the warmest on record, with the temperature staying above average for the majority of the month. As predicted, winter has started to hit us at the start of 2016. There were many mornings in January motorists were sat in their car, waiting for those heaters to slowly warm up and clear their windscreen. As well as this cold and bad weather affecting the mood of drivers, it also affects the car itself.

At Hometyre, there is one plan of action we can help you to take, replacing your summer tyres with winter tyres. There are many advantages to switching to winter tyres, many people believe they are only beneficial in minus temperatures, however their performance is much better than that of summer tyres from temperatures below just 7°C. Stopping distances and control are greatly improved, on icy roads your car will stop an average of 11 metres shorter, and braking distances on wet roads are improved by 10%.

Cold_weather_tyre_mobile_service

Winter tyres also perform much better during aquaplaning, this is basically when there is a sheet of water on the road surface and traction is lost. Drivers lose control of the vehicle and it slides over the surface of the road, winter tyres are able to disperse a larger amount of water than summer tyres which will majorly reduce the chance of aquaplaning, keeping yourself and your passengers much safer on the roads at this time of year.

The Importance of Checking Your Tyres

tyresafe

Checking your tyres - something that may often slip your mind, or something that you will do 'next week', this is something that should not be pushed to the back of your mind. TyreSafe have announced that regular tyre checks will reduce casualties and save millions of lives, at Hometyre we also urge motorists to regularly check their tyres are inflated to the vehicle manufacturers recommended pressures and that they have sufficient tread depth. It is important to check your tyres for any uneven wear and also for any cracks that may appear in the sidewall of your tyres.

Illegal or damaged tyres are the single largest contributing factor of all accidents which are caused by vehicle defects. According to the DVSA over recent years, 2.2 million cars annually fail their MoT due to tyre-related issues and on top of that, over the past three years the number of convictions for tyre-related offences has exceeded 15,000*.

A few easy tyre checks are recommended, taking less than a couple of minutes to complete, these should be carried out at least once a month and before a long journey. Simply check tread depth, air pressure and general condition of your tyres. The legal tread depth is 1.6mm in the central ¾ of the tyre in a continuous band around the entire circumference. The correct air pressure for your tyres can be found in the owner's manual, there will be two pressures stated, one for when fully loaded and another for when partly loaded.

If you check your tyres and have any worries regarding whether your tyres meet these standards, please contact us straight away at Hometyre so we can be sure you are driving both safely and legally on the road.

New Technology - 'DriveGuard' by Bridgestone

bridgestone_logo

On Tuesday 19th January 2016, in Nice, France, Bridgestone launched its latest technology DriveGuard. Over 100 journalists from around Europe were invited to this launch event to see what Bridgestone DriveGuard had to offer.

The engineering of this new tyre allows the driver to continue to drive for approximately 50 miles at a speed of up to 50mph following a puncture, whether this is a sharp piece of glass on the outer edge or a nail straight through the centre of the tread. These tyres are designed for cars with a TPMS valve fitted, once the indicator on your dashboard alerts you to the loss of air you know you have approximately 50 miles to get to a safe location.

As well as offering the driver an additional 50 miles to drive to safety, the tyre allows the car to be able to continue to drive well, maintaining steering control. As well as being a great tyre in an emergency, DriveGuard tyres also offer an 'A' Wet Grip rating, which is the highest wet grip performance, resulting in shorter braking distances.

bridgestone_driveguard

Bridgestone are expected to market DriveGuard tyres in the most popular sizes but there is talk of widening the size range and possibly introducing cold-weather tyres depending on interest in the product shown by the public. This new tyre is expected to be available for sale in the UK from around April this year. Until then, at Hometyre we stock various other Bridgestone Runflats including the RE050A and the S001, to see the tyres we have available in your size either call our sales team on 0800 783 9310 or visit our website!

More to it than you may think!

You've probably never even considered how a tyre is made or what's involved! For most motorists tyres are given very little consideration - other than the annoyance at the often unexpected cost of replacement.

The very real fact is that your tyres save your life EVERY time you drive your car. Really! 

We all want them to last 50,000 miles, often with little or no regular maintenance, through all types of road & weather conditions and speeds - and many assume that despite the assumption that they should handle all this with ease, that tyres should be a fraction of the price!

The end product, however, hides the extensive manufacturing processes, technologies and materials used to produce it! 

Take a look at this short video (you have to live with the slightly dodgy soundtrack though)! It offers a brief insight into the production of a modern car tyre. It's not just a big piece of rubber!!

 

Worried about insurance implications of winter tyres?

With winter now starting to take a grasp of the nation, there are many motorists nationwide making the switch over to cold weather tyres. If you've never experienced the benefits of these products before, you really would be amazed at the dramatic improvements in cold weather driving. These tyres maintain grip at all temperatures, unlike summer type tyres which harden at zero degrees and below and continue to lose traction thereafter.

In terms of overall vehicle safety, handling and braking performance during our cold, wet and dark winter months, there really is no equal. That said, every year we hear a similar tale or two from clients who have spoken to their insurers prior to fitting these tyres to check if there would be any issues.
Sadly we also encounter stories where said insurers are either charging additional premium values or even suggesting that policies could be made void through the fitment of these items too!
It is
misleading and an utterly deplorable stance for any insurer to either charge for or attempt to prevent a motorist from improving theirs and other motorists/pedestrians safety due to a total lack of understanding of cold weather rubber or indeed just to enterprise.

So... To help clear up any confusion please see below the OFFICIAL line from the ABI (Association of British Insurers) with regards the use of cold weather/winter tyres:

WINTER TYRES - THE MOTOR INSURANCE COMMITMENT

Motor insurers recognise that some motorists may wish to fit winter tyres to their car during cold weather. Motor insurers recognise that, whilst no substitute for common sense driving, winter tyres can have a positive impact on improving road safety. In the past there has been some uncertainty for insured customers about the insurance premium implications of fitting winter tyres to their cars. To assist in reducing this potential uncertainty, the ABI has produced the Commitment set out below which sets out the position of those named motor insurers in respect of the impact on the insurance premiums of their insured customers if a customer wishes to fit winter tyres to their car. As can be seen, often motor insurers will not charge an additional premium when their insured customers use winter tyres, provided that they meet, and are fitted in accordance with, the vehicle manufacturers' specifications and are in a roadworthy condition. However, some motor insurers may require you to contact them to let them know if you do choose to fit winter tyres. The name of your insurer and their contact information can be found on your insurance policy documentation (summary details are provided below). It is important to remember that sometimes your motor insurer may be different from the company that sold you your insurance policy. This Confirmation will apply from 3rd September 2015 to 2nd September 2016 at which time it will be reviewed. Please note that this Commitment only applies to cars used for personal use that are insured under a private or personal use car insurance policy.

The commitment of insurers:

The insurers named below do not require the payment of any additional premium if customers decide to fit winter tyres to their cars, provided that the tyres meet, and are fitted in accordance with, the relevant vehicle manufacturers' specifications and are in a roadworthy condition whilst in use.

A full list of these  insurers can be found here.

Hometyre offer a number of solutions for cold weather motoring including winter tyres, wheel and tyre packages and the new ALL YEAR MICHELIN CROSS CLIMATE TYRE. Call us today for more information on any cold weather motoring solution. 08007839310

 

Big announcements for key tyre manufacturers

The latter part of 2015 has seen a number of brand developments for premium tyre manufacturers - all competing to capture a greater part of the ever
