All Season Tyres Are The Best Of Both Worlds | Tyre Shopper
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.
The changeable weather conditions in the UK, which is exempt from the extremes of tropical heat and Arctic cold, makes all season tyres the best tyres for the average driver.
All weather tyres deliver a comfortable ride with moderate noise levels when driving creating a positive driving experiences through all four seasons in the year.
Main Benefits of Using All Season Tyres
One of the major benefits of using all weather tyres is that there is no need to own two sets of tyres and swap between summer tyres and winter tyres each year
However, there is a trade-off when using all season tyres. In the summer, the driver gives up a small amount of grip on the road due to the thicker tread designed to deal with winter weather conditions.
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, cold conditions (including snow on the ground), and the heat of summer too.
On the other hand, with summer tyres, a greater emphasis is placed on improved handling and achieving better mileage.
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 are the best tyres for these circumstances because there are blocks built into the tread of the tyre which help expel water more quickly and providing improved road grip.
