All season tires are a popular option for many Canadians in today’s market. Manufacturers created the term “all season” to describe tires that can perform at a standard level for all seasons. That being said, tires developed for all season usage lack certain features that seasonal specific tires are made for.
For example, for all season tires, manufacturers have lessened some wet weather traction in order to increase mobility in the colder months. All season tires are a logical option or some drivers, however it is important to know that they will never perform better than a tire designed for a specific season.
All season tires are perfect for drivers to use during spring, summer and fall driving because they are designed to provide traction in warm, dry and slightly wet road conditions. The tires are designed to offer a quiet ride, low rolling resistance, and traction for almost any driving condition.
All season tires are not recommended for driving in winter conditions with snow and ice on the road. They are constructed with a specific rubber compound to help provide them a longer tread life.
The trade-off of this is that they lose traction in colder weather. The all season tread compound is a harder type, so when the temperature drops below 7°C the rubber becomes even harder which isn’t ideal for winter driving. All season tires tend to have a shallower tread design, so when driving in snow and/or slush the tires can’t push the debris away as well, compromising the traction of the tire.
Just as other types of tires do, all season tires have their own pros and cons to consider before buying. If you are looking for guidance on which tires to buy, give our shop a call in Hamilton, ON.
