Tis the Season to Check Rubber....

Tra la la la laaaaa la la laaa laaaaa.
It's got a ring to it...?

On a serious note though, with all the fuss and panic over Christmas shopping, food shopping and planning, planning planning etc, it's really easy to neglect your car at this time of year. With the shorter and colder days here too, we're all less likely to wash the car or bother to check it over before a journey.

wintertyres_blog

A few minutes braving the cold though could well save you far more than just a few points and a fine...
At this time of year, your tyres are super important. Low tread means low grip, poor steering and poor braking - all things you really don't want to suffer out on the roads.
Did you know that in every tyre there are little blocks in the grooved area of the tread? These blocks (called TDIs Tread Depth Indicators) are preset at 2mm, which is the lowest point you should run your tyres to. If any part of the tyre is flush with one of these blocks, it's time to replace. Easy!

And remember, if you're busy, we bring the entire fitting centre directly to you, wherever you are and at spcific times of day to suit. With low prices and ultimate convenience - make sure that travelling this winter is safe and surefooted.

Hometyre also supply a full range of all-season and winter tyres too. Call us for more information. 0800 7839310

Auto Express name Michelin CrossClimate+ as Best All-Season Tyre

After extensive independent testing by Auto Express Michelin's CrossClimate+ has been named as the best all-season tyre.

The publication tested eight all-season tyres and concluded that the CrossClimate+ was 'best suited to UK conditions'.

'In Wet braking it needed 1.5 metres less than the next best,' the report said, while in the dry it 'took more than four metres less to stop' than the nearest competitor.

It was the quickest by almost two seconds around the handling track where 'it was precise, required much less lock and let us get on the accelerator earlier and harder'.

Jamie McWhir, car and 4X4 technical manager for Michelin in the UK, said: "We're really pleased with these results. When the CrossClimate was launched more than two years ago we knew it was an ideal tyre for the UK, where winters tend to be wet with only occasional snow." 

"The CrossClimate+ has gone even further across a whole range of performance criteria, which means there is no need to compromise in either the summer or the winter - and it delivers safety and comfort right down to the minimum legal tread depth of 1.6mm. It's testament to our commitment to research and development and we're very proud of it."

Tyre pressure monitoring system checks

National Tyre Safety Month continues with TyreSafe reminding drivers to not rely solely on tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS).

While this valued technology has been proven to improve road safety by advising of a change in tyre pressure, drivers need t check their TPMS is working and be aware that is does not warn drivers of the condition of their tyres. While typically reliable the system can fail and batteries in the wheel-mounted sensors can run out.

All new cars sold are now fitted with TPMS as mandatory. To check it's working, drivers need to ensure the TPMS symbol comes on with all the other warning lights when the ignition key is turned and goes out after the engine starts.

Regrettable, too many drivers are ignoring the warning lights as the number of MOT failures due to faulty TPMS systems rose by over 200% between 2015 and 2016

Stuart Jackson, Chairman of TyreSafe, said "The introduction of TPMS was a valuable step forward in tyre safety but drivers should be more aware of it and the warnings it is capable of producing. Tyre Safety Month is the ideal time to learn exactly what is does so you don't rely on it to warn you of defects it simply cannot detect. Don't have a Bad Air Day double-check your TPMS system is working as it should."

Hometyre offer TPMS checks, can advise on battery life and can replace fully systems or service parts.


 

It's Seasonal Swap Over Time

It's October! And while we're still clinging onto a few warm days and airing arms and legs in t-shirts and shorts (with rapidly diminishing frequency), it's just a few weeks until some potentially nasty cold weather is greeting us during travel times...

If you're already accustomed to making the seasonal switch from summer tyres to winter tyres then it's time to plan ahead and book us in during October. If the weather turns abruptly, it can get pretty busy very quickly!
If you've never considered using winter tyres and you rely on your vehicle for work/university/school run etc, then consider the benefits: 

hometyrewinter


A cold weather tyre performs best at 7C and below. The design and composition of the tread and rubber means that unlike a summer tyre which hardens at lower temperatures, these tyres remain supple and grippy throughout. The tread blocks (sipes) act like a centipedes legs, forcing there way onto the road surface in wet /slushy and even in snowy conditions. Braking distances are massively improved, as is cornering stability. All very positive attributes for winter driving.

There's also now the uprise of the All Season tyre too. These tyres offer good year round capabilities - a kind of jack of all weathers - but master of none! A great option for the urban motorist who is unlikely to suffer serious extremes.

Whatever your winter motoring rubber requirements - call us for help and guidance. We're even prefered suppliers of the world-beating NOKIAN Wnter tyre range too. 08007839310 

 

National Tyre Safety Month 2017

National tyre safety month kicks off with the question "Are you having a Good or Bad Air Day?"

A study conducted by TyreSafe suggests as many as 57% of car and van tyres on the roads are being driven below recommended inflation pressures, increasing vehicles' fuel consuption and the risk of being involved in an incident. Not only does the vehilce become more difficult to control, the amount of tyre in contact with the road can be halved. If it isn't touching the road properly, a tyre's grip is compromised, meaning it takes longer to stop, espcially in the wet.

A tyre can wear 10% more quickly if it's 10% below the manufacturer's recommended settings and the extra effort needed to turn the wheels means the vehicle burns more fuel. Research by TyreSafe shows an extra £600 million is potentially being spent on fuel bills by drivers because their tyres are under-inflateds. It's also adding the amount of CO2 the vehicle burns.

To reduce the risks while driving and save themselves money, drivers are reminded to check their air pressures at least once a month and before long journeys.

Stuart Jackson, Chairman of TyreSafe, said "Keeping tyres properly inflated is easy to do, keeps drivers and other road users safe, and saves money. It's a win-win situation so it's remarkable how many motorists don't ensure the pressures are correct for the vehicle and the load it is carrying. Tyre Safety Month is the ideal time to start the routine of ensuring every driving day is a good air day."

Vehicles typically have two tyre pressure settings. These will need to be adjusted depending on whether the vehicle is fully loaded or has a light load. Most vehicles have these displayed either in the fuel filler cap, door shut or even glovebox, but the will certainly be in the owner's handbook.

All Season or Winter Tyres for 2017/18?

Are you starting to think about the (sorry!) forthcoming winter? If you're a regular winter tyre user, at some point in October you'll no doubt be making the switch back off your summer rubber in preparation for the cold season.

Tyre manufacturers have recognised that across Europe - and particularly in the UK, the winter season has changed. Prolonged sub zero temperatures and extreme weather appears to have been replaced by a colder version of August! While there is no real substitute for proper cold weather tyres to handle true wintry conditions on untreated and less well used roads, there is certainly a good case for a tyre that can be kept on year round and offer a good range of capabilities.

wintertyres_blog


Enter the ALL SEASON tyre. Many manufacturers now have a range of all season offerings across popular sizes. These tyres bridge the gap between a summer and winter tyre and provide a level of performance in both seasons without particularly compromising on wear rates, comfort, noise or fuel economy.

These probably represent a great alternative for urban motorists who wish to retain the peace of mind and surefootedness of a winter tyre at low temperatures without the need for biannual swap overs and tyre storage associated with true winter options.

Of course if the weather does deteriorate to conditions that we last experienced back in 2011, or you rely on your vehicle daily, for whatever reason, then the investment in a full set of winter tyres will prove invaluable.

Whatever your preference, we're happy to offer our best advice and a range of options to suit. Our mobile service allows you to swap over summer to winter tyres at home - saving you the cost of storage facilities (provided you've got a little space to keep them, of course).

Hometyre are preferred suppliers of arguably the finest winter tyres available - NOKIAN. Manufactured in Scandinavia, Nokian invented and have continuously developed this product over many decades. Call us for more information.

All Season Tyres

With the weather becoming a little more sporadic and seasons not necessarily falling when expected, the use of All Season tyres is growing in the UK.

Pirelli has developed a range of All Season tyres for cars, SUVs and vans.

For the car solution, Cinturato All Season, is a tyre that works equally well throughout the year and offers the highest standards of safety on every road surface. It is perfect in summer, without any of the performance drop-off seen by winter tyres in warmer conditions, and works just as well in non-extreme winter conditions, as typically seen in towns and cities. The Cinturato All Season delivers its very best performance in those conditions where having either a summer tyre or winter tyre would be a compromise.

For SUVs Pirelli offers the Scorpion Verde All Season, which like the Cinturato All Season, is designed to provide optimum performance in both summer and winter conditions. This tyre is homologated for a range of high-performance vehicles including the Porsche Macan, Range Rover Evoque and Volvo XC90.

For the vans the Carrier All Season have been developed. This tyre also carried the snowflake symbol on the sidewall signifying it's suitable for winter use in markets where legislation requires drivers to change to winter-specific rubber. In selected sizes the Carrier All Season also benefits from Pirelli's innovative safety system 'Seal Inside'.

It's Summer! (But Don't Go Getting All Complacent....)

It'd be easy to neglect the car a little at this time of year - certainly without the worry of frosty mornings, slippery roads and bleak skies.
For the sake of a few simple checks though, a whole host of problems and hassle can be avoided during your holiday travels....

5 Easy Checks for Peace of Mind Summer Driving

1. TYRES. (Oh come on, you knew we'd start with these!)

Get those pressures checked. Low pressure increases fuel consumption and places massive strain on your tyres. Couple this with extra weight such as luggage etc and problems could lie ahead. A visual check will highlight low tread, cuts, bulges and perishing. How old are your tyres? 6-7 years and you really need to think about renewing! Make sure (if you have one?) that the spare is fit for use and the tools required to change it are present - including the locking nut key...

2. FLUIDS

Modern cars are so much more reliable mechanically than they used to be but they still need regularly checking for coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid and oil levels. Don't forget the washer bottle either. Add some detergent to break down the bugs.(and it's not a bad call to carry water reserves for you too! Traffic jams in the heat aren't pleasant!)

3. CONTACT NUMBERS

Create a list in your 'phone for travel related numbers. Are you in a breakdown scheme? Do you have your insurers details? Obviously you need 03334445454 for tyre related stuff!

4. GLASS and MIRRORS

Good vision is absolutely vital to safe motoring. Bright sunlight on grubby glass can cause huge restrictions in vision. Easiest way to clean them? Spray on normal window cleaner and use newspaper to wipe it off! Something about the paper soaks up all the grease and leaves glass crystal clear!

5. LIGHTING & WIPERS

Last, but not least, grab a friend do operate the controls and do a light check around the car. Those brake lights will be vital if you're on foreign roads. Don't forget,you may need to carry spares legally too!

TIP: Indicators should flash orange! If they look white then the bulbs need replacing...
Check your windscreen wipers are cleaning the screen properly and the rubber isn't split.
TIP: Use window cleaner on a soft cloth to wipe down the rubber blades to remove dirt and debris

Too many holiday makers jump in their cars all geared up for a well earned break - only to waste hours or even days due to perfectly avoidable issues.
Don't forget to check that your MOT and service is up to date before travelling too!

Aged Tyres? What's it all about?

You may have heard the name Frances Molloy in the press recently? It's not a name synonymous with tyre safety historically. Sadly she'x only become a serious campaigner due to the loss of her son after a bus crash. The results of the crash investigation laid blame solely on the catastrophic blow-out of one of the vehicles tyres. 

At present, there is no legislation in place to prevent the use of aged tyres on any vehicle and yet the risks to us all are massive. Let's explain...

For most people, a tyre is just a thing that has to be fitted in order to use a vehicle. There's not a great deal of thought placed on the huge role it plays in the prevention of an early termination to your life each and every time you drive, or are driven in a vehicle. In fact, while our government (one of very few left in Europe) actually allows the sale of used tyres to unsuspecting motorists and fails to monitor the conditions of these sales at all, it's almost easy to understand why so many people are completely complacent in their thinking about tyre safety. If the government appears to think that there's no issue in allowing unscrupulous traders to sell dangerous scrap as 'part worn' then why should we worry?

Well worry we should. You see a tyre is made from predominantly rubber - a natural product. Throw in a whole host of other materials as well of course but mostly rubber. Like any natural product (ourselves included) rubber ages from minute one. From soft and elastic it becomes harder and more brittle with age. Add the elements of weathering, road abuse and forces of acceleration and that tyres working lwindow rapdily diminishes with every year.

Back to Mrs Molloy's son. The bus he was travelling had tyres on it that were over ten years old. One reached the point of no return and let go. He died as a result. This should not have happened and could have easily been avoided.

Every tyre is marked with a date code. A four digit number that denotes the week and year of manufacture. Mrs Mooloy is campaigning hard for new rules to be introduced to prevent the use of tyres over ten years of age - and we fully support her.

Every year we fit thousands of caravan tyres up and down the UK. Owners of these vehicles change their tyres at 5 years of age. WE can honestly say that we've never replaced a worn out caravan tyre. In fact sometimes they look like new! 

We've not been guided from above about the importance of tyre safety - so naturally, most of us disregard it - until it's too late.

#oldtyreskill

The TYRED campaign is gathering momentum and should this be recognised and passed, we can only hope that tyre saftey finally gets the recognition it has deserved for so long.

One-third of All UK tyres are illegal

A new research by road safety charity TyreSafe has revealed nearly a third of all tyres in the UK are currently illegal.

TyreSafe found that more than 10 million tyres are illegal - either below the 1.6mm minimum depth or defective with bulges and tears.

Bristol was found to be the worst city for tyre safety. TyreSafe's research revealed almost a half of all tyres in Bristol are illegal, far above the UK average of 29.9%.

The north-west of England was found to be the worst regional area - nearly a third of all tyres were illegal. Greater London bucked the trend with just 13.8 per cent.

The data also revealed Northern Ireland has the highest national share of dodgy tyres, on 36.5 per cent. TyreSafe chairman Stuart Jackson said: "Well maintained tyres significantly reduce the risk of being involved in an accident."

Alfa Romeo Team up with Goodyear

Goodyear has announced that its Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV, Ultra-High Performance tyre, has been chosen as original equipment on the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio, the first SUV from the iconic Italian manufacturer.

The Stelvio will be fitted with the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV in sizes 235/65R17 104W, 235/60R18 103W and 235/55R19 101Y, the tyres will be marked 'AR' to indicate they are approved by Alfa Romeo as original equipment on their vehicles.

Goodyear developed the tyres focusing on ultimate handling performance in all conditions. Active braking technology and a new grip booster compound deliver strong grip for short braking and performance handling on wet and dry roads. A new, lightweight, reinforced construction technology allows for steering precision and durability as well as handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency, to deliver a top-class driving experience to Stelvio drivers.

The new Alfa Romeo Stelvio can rely on Goodyear's latest UHP innovative tyres, featuring outstanding technology, and enhancing the sporty driving pleasure and the unique emotions provided by the Alfa Romeo spirit.

"The fact Alfa Romeo has chosen Goodyear as original equipment for its first SUV confirms our expertise in designing tailor-made tyres for car manufacturers' new flagship vehicles." said Nick Harley, Goodyear's Managing Director OE Consumer EMEA. "To Meet the requirements for this eagerly awaited car, we had to deliver a tyre that enables the Stelvio driver to appreciate the benefits of a SUV, as well as to fully enjoy the Alfa Romeo spirit."

Hankook extends portfolio for Premium SUVs

Hankook is further extending its tyre portfolio through the expansion of the line-up for its high end tyre Ventus S1 evo2 SUV.

The tyres were developed not only around the focus of safety, performance and comfort-related aspects typical for premium automobiles, such as precise handling, excellent braking performance in both dry and wet, high directional stability and low rolling noise. Hankook's engineers also realized a considerable reduction in rolling resistance. The latter was achieved by applying a state-of-the-are high-grip styrene-polymer-silica mixture that not only enables optimised wet grip, but also enhances the tyre's environmental compatibility.

The sophisticated technology for the Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 SUV with its multiple tread radius and double-layer rayon carcass also effectively support SUV terrain characteristics by providing maximum tread contact under all conditions.

hankook_ventus_s1_evo2_suv_k117a

Hankook will provide specific high-performance yet very low rolling resistance SUV versions from its multiple award-winning Ventus line also for the popular Mercedes-Benz GLC and GLC Coupe. Hankook supply the Mercedes-Benz GLC in size 235/65R17 V Mo or 235/60R18 V Mo.

The 18 inch MO version distinguished itself during the test phase for its outstandingly low level of rolling resistance. Additionally the sporty Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe will be fitted with 235/55R19 Y MO for the front and 255/50R19 Y MO for the rear.

Continental Go All-Season for Europe

While Continental remain firm in their belief that for optimal performance and safety, tyres should be season specific - which is a very fair point - the new All Season Contact will soon hit the shelves this year.

Designed specifically for vehicles used in urban areas, mild climates and carrying out relatively low mileage, the new all season product combines good winter and summer performances with class leading rolling resistance.

 Available in sizes from 14" to 18",  the new tyre represents Continentals reaction to other similar products gaining popularity across Europe and also shows a slight shift in stance in recognising a change in trends.

Continental AllSeason Contact will be available for mobile fitment by Hometyre technicians as soon as they arrive into the UK. Call for more information.
