All weather tyres
The all season tyres are a combination of parameters of the summer and winter tyres. They are a compromise between those two types’ performances. Their purpose is to satisfy even the most demanding drivers. The all season tyres perform appropriately in all seasons and weather conditions. This extraordinary feature is the effect of combination of the advantages of both the summer and the winter tyres. Also the rubber mix used in the manufacture of all season tyres is specially prepared to perform well in temperatures both below and above zero.
Owing to their material and design, the all season tyres perform the same throughout the year. Their biggest advantage is versatility. The tread of the all season tyre resembles the winter tyre tread. It has numerous centrally located indentations that ensure adequate traction on snow. The outer side of the all season tyre tread includes massive studs with fewer indentations (as in the case of a summer tyre), which ensure stability even at higher speed.
The all season tyres bear special marks. The most frequent marking
is the symbol M+S (mud and snow). Some all season tyres bear a symbol composed of three peaks with a snowflake. Yet another method of marking an all season tyre is to put the inscription ALL SEASON on its side.
Designed for many different seasons, the all season tyres do not need changing during the year and are therefore an economical solution. It is worth adding that the all season tyres are best suited to the urban conditions with no snow retention. This is not to say, though, that such tyres perform poorly on roads covered with a thin layer of snow. The all season tyres are appropriate for drivers who prefer the easy driving style and travel up to 6 thousand kilometres a year.
