Benefits of All-Season Tyres

All-season, or all-weather tyres as they are sometimes known, have been developed for specific European regions with moderate climates characterised by wet, light winters, making them ideal for use in the UK. All-season tyres are designed to give drivers a confident, safe driving experience all year round without the need to change tyres twice a year.

There is always a trade-off in performance between winter tyres and summer tyres in the different seasons with regard to tyre handling, braking & traction in dry, wet and snow conditions. This means the all weather tyres are unlikely to be as good as the best specialist tyre in the respective seasons but can be expected to work better on wintry roads than a summer tyre, and better on a summer road than a winter tyre. The main benefit is that you will avoid the hassle and cost of swapping tyres twice a year. In areas where the winters are harsh and snow and ice is a regular occurrence (or you will be travelling to parts of Europe where this is the case) a proper winter tyre is necessary.

All-season tyres are easy to drive thanks to stable cornering and strong traction in both wet and dry conditions. On wet roads, the specially designed blocks ensure smooth water evacuation, reducing the risk of hydroplaning. Drivers should not worry if winter does strike, as their high-density siping (grooves) are effective at helping the tread bite the surface of the road to give grip in freezing conditions for confident handling and braking on cold, frozen and snowy roads.

All-season tyres take motorists safely into cold and more challenging winter conditions. Some manufacturers have also tuned the tread pattern for low noise and optimum road contact in all surface conditions.
