MICHELIN, The Tyre That Runs And Runs And Runs…
No 1 In Longevity
The Right Tyre Changes Everything…
MICHELIN tyres can last for an average of 28,000 miles. That’s more than once around the Earth. At MICHELIN we’re always encouraging our 4,000 researchers to come up with new ways to offer you the performance you expect from MICHELIN. From the ﬁrst mile to the last.
Get 20% More Mileage According to tests carried out by independent institutions, a MICHELIN tyre lets you travel on average 20% more miles compared to its main competitors.
MICHELIN Tyres Last Longer By choosing MICHELIN you’ll not only be able to drive for longer on your tyres, but you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment. Your MICHELIN tyre will wear more slowly and need to be replaced less often. This also results in less worn tyres for recycling.
At Nolan Tyres we aim to provide quality tyres for our customers at quality prices.
That is why we provide a range of top quality brands with a long history of quality.
At first sight a tyre is just black and round with a hole in the middle.
Look a bit more deeply, however, and you’ll see quite a different story.
Michelin and BF Goodrich tyres are a complex piece of high technology, consisting of dozens of components using a wide variety of raw materials, that is essential for your safety and the efficient running of your vehicle.
The composition of the rubber varies within the same tyre.
Each material has very different properties, whose manufacture demands great precision.
Each is meticulously designed for the requirements of flexibility and strength, grip and so on.
All these standards mean Michelin and BF Goodrich tyres offer incredible performance in dry and particularly wet conditions. They are also designed to minimize rolling resistance to help cut fuel cost and save you money.
WHY CHOOSE US?
At Nolan Tyres we carry a large stock and full range of quality made tyres to suit your vehicles needs.
Please call in to speak to our friendly staff about what tyres meet your needs.
At a glance, it will grade tyres on fuel efficiency, wet grip, and external noise level.
So from 1 November 2012, we will have a new way to compare tyres when we shop around.
BUT WHO GRADES THE TYRES, AND HOW?
The new legislation on tyre labelling has 3 aims: to improve road safety, to reduce fuel consumption and therefore greenhouse gas emissions, and to reduce noise levels of trafﬁc.
GRADING TO A COMMON STANDARD.
Across Europe, each manufacturer or importer has the responsibility of grading his own tyres according to a strict testing system. This self-certification aims to provide consistent, reliable grading so, as consumers, we should be able to confidently compare different tyres and brands. Each European member state is committed to ensure the testing system is respected.HOW TO MEASURE FUEL ECONOMY?
When your tyres roll along the road, there is a degree of resistance, which has an impact on how much fuel you use.
In other words, rolling resistance is the energy your tyres consume over any distance travelled.
If your tyres have a LOW rolling resistance, they will give you BETTER fuel efficiency.
The tyre is tested on a rolling surface under standardised conditions to represent average usage.
The test simulates driving at 80km/h (50mph) with a load equivalent to 80% of the tyre’s load index.
HOW TO MEASURE BRAKING ON WET ROADS?
This test is done with a vehicle under standardised conditions defined by law:
• STATE OF ROAD SURFACE,
• WATER DEPTH
The conditions of the tests, according to European legislation, are:
– Winter tyres tested between 2° and 20°C
– Summer tyres tested between 5° and 35°C
– Water depth between 0.5 and 1.5 mm
– Braking performed on 4 tyres with ABS between 80 and 20 km/h (approx. between 50 and 12 mph)
HOW MICHELIN TESTS
We have chosen to perform tests under conditions that are as close as possible to true European, driving conditions. This means in an on-going bid to be as close as possible to the needs of its customers, Michelin will conduct all of its braking tests on wet roads at the most representative temperatures for typical European usage of its products.
• Approximately 20°C for passenger car tyres
• Approximately 7°C for passenger car and van winter tyres
• Between 7°C and 25°C truck tyres (generally used in summer and winter conditions)
Since it isn’t possible to test every tyre in the market in identical conditions, all tests are carried out beside a “reference” tyre. In this way, the grade awarded to each tyre is always tested under the same conditions.
HOW TO MEASURE EXTERNAL TYRE NOISE?
For external noise level, a tyre’s performance is measured in decibels (dB).
THE TEST: A microphone is placed at the edge of a track to measure the sound level as the test vehicle passes at 80 km/h (50 mph).
External noise is measured in standard conditions (track, speed, temperature).
WHAT ELSE MATTERS WHEN CHOOSING TYRES?
Labelling is a good start, but 3 other performance factors are just as important for you:
TYRE LONGEVITY: a longer-lasting tyre can cost you less in the long run. The right tyre could give you more than a year of extra driving compared to another tyre.
DRY BRAKING PERFORMANCE: 70% of accidents occur on dry roads. Guess who makes tyres with all the performance that counts…
ROAD HANDLING PERFORMANCE: 25% of accidents are on bends.
For over 120 years, our engineers have pioneered and perfected tyres that deliver on these important performance factors, as well as the 3 factors listed on the new labels. With Michelin, you can enjoy an excellent balance of performance— without compromise.
