All Season Tyres
What Are All Season Tyres?
All season, or all weather tyres are designed to offer adequate performance in various weather conditions.
All season tyres have been constructed using a combination of summer and winter tyre technology so that they can cope with hot, dry conditions and light winter conditions.
In a similar way to summer tyres, all season tyres are constructed with a tread and siping to reduce the risk of aquaplaning on wet roads. Simultaneously, they are able to offer good gripping and braking capabilities in freezing temperatures due to the use of a winter compound which keeps the rubber supple and able to perform.
All season tyres perform better than a summer tyre in winter conditions and better than a winter tyre in summer conditions, however, they cannot match the seasonal performance of a dedicated season specific tyre.
The Benefits of All Season Tyres
The main benefit of using all season tyres is avoiding the cost and hassle of switching between summer and winter tyres, and this option is particularly attractive to those who do not have the ability to store a second set of tyres.
All season tyres can offer safety to motorists who face lightly changing conditions regularly as they can safely take you into cold weather and they can provide optimum grip in different weather.
Marked with the same ‘M+S’ and ‘Snowflake’ designations as winter tyres, all season tyres are acceptable for winter use where winter tyres are required by law and will meet performance standards in these conditions.
Similarly, due to an optimised tread pattern, all season tyres will offer adequate levels of grip during summer conditions.
Are All Season tyres for me?
If you live in an area which does not suffer from extreme conditions during winter or summer, all season tyres may be the best option for you.
Furthermore, if you are unable to store a second set of tyres and are unable to have tyres switched twice a year, all season tyres are a superior choice to using summer or winter tyres all year round.
If temperatures regularly drop below -5ºC and you live in a more rural area which is prone to ice, Merityre Specialists would recommend fitting dedicated winter tyres to your vehicle.
Similarly, if you want to maximise your vehicles handling and performance during milder temperatures, you should consider fitting summer tyres.
We stock a wide range of all season tyres for all vehicles, simply buy online and have them fitted at your local branch. If you are unsure as to which tyres are the right choice for you, simply call your local Merityre Specialists where our tyre specialists will be able to offer advice and guidance.
