There are numerous benefits to all-season tyres. Ideal for regions with temperate weather, such as the UK, they outperform summer tyres in winter conditions and grip better than winter tyres during the summer months.
All-season tyres often feature specially designed tread blocks to prevent aquaplaning and high-density sipes for confident handling when there’s ice on the road.
However, it's important to recognise that they involve a compromise, as they sacrifice some performance to cater to a broader temperature range - they don't offer the same level of safety as season-specific tyres used at the appropriate times of the year. That’s why it’s essential to consider the pros and cons of summer tyres and whether winter tyres are worth it.
