All Season Tyres
All season tyres are engineered to give vehicles enough winter traction to get through light snow conditions, which makes it possible for a driver to run one set of tyres year-round in places that don’t get a lot of snowfall or ice. All-season tyres are perfect for places like UK where the ambient temperature is somewhat moderate throughout the year.
All season tyres are made with a compound that stays flexible (even at temperatures a bit above freezing) which helps to maintain the road grip. The tread patterns consists of deeper grooves and feature more voids and variations which subsequently helps with traction for travel in light snow. Their designs are usually symmetrical, and therefore there is more rotation options to even out tread wear and extend tyre mileage.
All season tyres are like a hybrid between summer and winter tyres which can handle a variety of weather and road conditions while getting good tread life. They don’t substitute for genuine winter tyres, which are necessary for stable driving on serious snow, sleet and ice.
All-season tyres present the user with a plethora of benefits, which includes.
- No need to swap tyres twice annually i.e. saves money and hassle in the process.
- Deliver above-par performance in all road conditions as they combine the best features of winter and summer tyres.
- Deliver better performance than summer tyres in winter and vice-versa.
However, you must refrain from using these tyres when the weather conditions are too extreme. For example, if it’s snowing heavily, it’s more prudent to use snow car tyres. Similarly, when it’s scorching hot, it’s better to use summer tyres than all-season tyres.
