Daft tyre names

Recommended Posts

Even trucks aren't immune from the bizarre brands. Saw one today with a right mix of ditchfinders: Doublecoin on the front, Aeolus on the middle and Fastlane on the drive axle. I've never heard of any of those.

I had to look up Giti - apparently its pronounced GT. They are a Singaporean company with factories in Indonesia and China and they are building a new one in the USofA. Their test centre is here in Blighty, based at MIRA.

In another thread. For sale a spare wheel and new tyre for a Nissan or Dacia.

THUNDER 

The place I bought it was more than a little dodgy.

Isn't this a Pirelli winter tyre? Pirelli Sottozero? (under zero degrees Celsius)

 

Anyway, I used to have a set of four of these beauties:

Sure some of these have appeared before, but I was looking my closely at my friend's cars (and his neighbours 4x4) and found many strange names in one place.

The Headway wasn't a Horace, much to my disappointment

Don’t have any pics but, a guy I once worked for came into the workshop positively beaming (very unusual for him) and announced that he’d found a new tyre firm who would improve on the current one. A few days later one of the lorries suffered a puncture, we all waited eagerly to see the gleaming new tyre when it returned. The old Double Coin had been cast away, and replaced by a Double Happiness! Such a romantic name.

 

in fairness they were skip lorries, and working in London all day meant they rarely got above 30MPH. I wouldn’t be splashing out on Bridgies or Michelins either.
