There have been primarily two types of tyres that UK motorists switch over the year. One of the types is the Winter tyres that are designed to cope up with the wet and snowy road conditions. Another type of tyres is the Summer Tyres that are offer superior control and traction on dry road conditions. However, switching the tyres is expensive. However, winters in several regions are mild which negates the need for specialized winter tyres, but the use of summer tyres in these conditions prove disappointing as well.
In comes the third type of tyres that were developed keeping moderate climatic regions of Europe in mind and provide optimal performance on dry, wet, and light-wintery conditions. These features make them ideal for use in the UK. These tyres are commonly known as All-Season tyres and are also referred to as All-Weather or All-Climate tyres. All-Season tyres are developed to provide UK car drivers with an excellent driving experience throughout all seasons negating the need to switch tyres twice a year.
All-Season tyres provide a great blend of winter and summer performance. They consist of a moderate rubber compound and tread depths more profound than summer tyres for comparatively longer tread life. The tread pattern is also more siped compared to summer tyres, but not as siped as specialised winter tyres. These sipes help the tyres roll safely with proper grip to the road surface in mild winter conditions. The specially designed tread blocks allow smooth dispersion of water and reduce the risk of aquaplaning. The rubber compound in these tyres does not harden up as one of the summer tyres in winter.
The only small downside is these tyres are not top performing in particular seasons, i.e., they are not as good as winter tyres in cold weather conditions, nor they are as good as summer tyres in warm weather conditions. However, They offer much better handling, traction, and braking than summer tyres in winter. Similarly, they also provide better road performance than winter tyres in summer. They offer consistency in performance throughout the year that neither types of tyres can offer.
You also save loads of money as you don’t need to buy winter tyres and summer tyres separately anymore. Imagine the total cost incurred in purchase, fitting and maintenance of two separate sets of tyres all year around. All that money can be easily saved.
