A guide to all-season tyres
Monday 14th December 2020
All-season tyres are developed for use in countries with moderate yearly weather patterns. This makes them ideal for use in the UK and other European countries that have relatively mild climates. Learn more about all-season tyres from our guide today.
What are all-weather tyres?
All-weather tyres, also known as all-season tyres, as tyres which are designed to withstand the elements of each season while maintaining performance and safety of the vehicle. They are built to perform adequately on wintry and icy surfaces, as well as reducing aquaplaning on wet surfaces – while also being capable of maintaining good grip and handling on dry surfaces in the summer months, too.
All-season tyres are a popular choice for many motorists – as they reduce the need to change your tyres every six months to accommodate to the current season. However, it’s worth noting that although all-season tyres are perfectly acceptable to use for your vehicle, you are likely to experience a much more enhanced performance for your vehicle by choosing season specific tyres.
