Tyre-Shopper Presents All Season Tyres - Enjoy the Best of Both Worlds
Automotive experts are in agreement that all season tyres (aka all weather tyres) are suitable for drivers who live in places that enjoy a more moderate climate without extremes in temperature.
Special Tread on All Season Tyres
The tread on all season radial tyres uses high-density grooves specially designed to be more flexible to handle wet conditions, colder conditions including snow on the ground, and summer heat too. These can be compared to summer tyres that place a greater focus on improved handling and achieving better mileage.
Main Benefit of Using All Season Tyres
One of the major benefits of using all season tyres is that there is no need to own two sets of tyres and swap between summer tyres and winter tyres each year.
Handles Hydroplaning Better
Hydroplaning is a problem in certain types of weather where water can become trapped between the tyre and the road with the vehicle losing traction and driver control. All-season tyres work well under this circumstance because there are blocks built into the tread of the tyre which help expel water more quickly and providing improved road grip.
Effective Tyre Design for Snow on the Road
The Siping on the tread of the tyre helps to stop the slipping and sliding common when driving on snowy road surfaces. The road performance when using these tyres is more predictable, with better handling thanks to the improved traction.
All Season Tyres Best for UK Weather?
The changeable weather conditions in the UK, which avoids the extremes of tropical heat and Arctic cold, makes all season tyres a good option for the average driver.
There is a trade-off when using all season tyres though. The driver gives up a small amount of grip on the road in the summer due to the thicker tread designed to deal with winter weather conditions. All season tyres deliver a comfortable ride with moderate noise levels when driving delivering a balance of positive experiences through all four seasons of the year.
