2018 Chevrolet Tahoe Custom Midnight Attempts to Build Bridge to New Model

  2018 Chevrolet Tahoe Custom Midnight Attempts to Build Bridge to New Model Black accents, “aggressive” off-road tires, and no third rowThe 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe Custom Midnight is a two-row version of the venerable SUV, going on sale this spring. Losing the third row in favor of cargo results in 54 cubic feet of all-seats-up space back there, though it's also a tacit acknowledgement that many owners who don't regularly need the non-flat folding seat store it in their garages.

Pirelli has launched a new Scorpion All-Terrain Plus tire specifically for North American pickups and SUVs, featuring a more aggressive design and tread compound for superior performance on- and off-road.

A newcomer to the Scorpion AT tire line, it will be available in wheel fitments ranging from 16 to 20 inches. Most sizes are available right now, with the full line expected in the third quarter of the year, just in time for winter (appropriate, since the tire carries the 3-Peaks Snowflake, designating it suitable for winter conditions).

When Can I Put My Summer Tires On?

  When Can I Put My Summer Tires On? Naturally, the uncommonly temperate daytime temperatures we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks have many motorists thinking that it might be time to remove their winter tires.He is not alone, as classic car sightings have become an almost daily thing around here and more motorcycles are visible each and every day.

Our free two-year Tire Road Hazard Protection is included with most tires . We listen and learn on the road . We explore a tire ’s limits through our five-cone slalom, on our simulated on/ off ramp and around a 90-degree “street corner” turn.

(1). Pirelli Tires . Knowing basic factors in choosing the correct off road truck tires are very important because some off - road applications with long haul cycles need more heat resistant tread rubber.

The aggressive tread pattern and upper sidewall design not only looks good on a truck, but also provides balanced performance in on- and off-road conditions. The new-generation tread compound optimizes durability, traction and wear, while providing high-resistance to cutting and chipping, and superior traction in mud and snow (thanks in part to deep tread grove and conical pebble ejectors).

Covered by an 80,000 km warranty, the All Terrain Plus joins the all-season line that includes the Scorpion Zero All Season Plus, Scorpion Verde All Season Plus, P Zero All Season Plus and Cinturato P7 All Season Plus.

“Our High-Value strategy calls for the diversification of products and services, based on the needs of specific markets and customer groups within those markets,” said Marco Crola, Chief Executive Officer for Pirelli Tire North America, “The new Scorpion All Terrain Plus, which completes our product portfolio, goes in this direction: meeting the specific needs of pick-up truck and SUV drivers.”

Russia's Unstoppable 4x4 Finally Meets Its Match In Texas

  Russia's Unstoppable 4x4 Finally Meets Its Match In Texas More than two years ago we were introduced to the Sherp–a heroically unstoppable 4x4 tractor thing from Russia with 63-inch tires. I sort of figured it would be relegated for official use only. But don’t worry, some mud-bogging boys got ahold of one and plopped it into a pit of Texas clay. I’ll save you the suspense from reading this video’s title and explain that, yes, the Sherp did get stuck. Sort of. As the camera guy points out a few minutes in: “If we had eight hours,” it’d probably paddle its way back to solid ground.I just think it’s fun to watch those enormous wheels churn the Earth.

The Pirelli group strategy has led to new cutting edge products and technologies such as Connesso (a mobile app that displays tire performance data gathered via an in-tire sensor) and Cyber Car (which adjusts vehicle settings based on tire data), Color Edition (to personalize tires by matching to complementary vehicle colours), Run Flat and Self-Sealing tires, and the Pirelli Noise Canceling System (an in-tire sponge that reduces road noise transferring to the cabin).
