Choosing new all-season type of tires for your car

All-season tires

If living in an area with mild climate year-round then all-season tires are a good choice. This flexible tire can be used year-round in areas without winter weather.  This is the case in many areas of the United States and is probably the reason why the all-season tires are one of the most popular tires. Contrary to what the name of the tires would have you believe they are actually only suitable for three seasons and are not to be used in severe winter conditions. They are not approved for winter use and thus do not hold the severe service emblem or the 3PMSF (“Three Peak Mountain Snowflake”) symbol signifying that they are approved for use in severe winter conditions like all-weather tires or winter tires. This is different than the M+S marking that tire manufacturers can add to their tires if the tread is wider so they can handle is designed for wet and thick solutions.

All season tires like the Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 have some of the most advanced highway tread designs with industry-leading technology. They are designed for North America to deliver a premium tire. They are ultra-quiet and study tires that provides both comfort and safety and excellent wet grip and ability to prevent hydroplaning. The low rolling resistance make them perfect for electric car and hybrids. Low rolling resistance also allow for longer distance on every charge and lower fuel consumption coupled with lower tire wear. Make sure that you have sufficient tire pressure, as low pressure increases the pressure.

Other innovations used in these tires are the all-new high modulus tread compound, silent groove design, silent sidewall technology, polished grooves as well as low rolling resistance making it an environmentally friendly tire. With its staggered lateral grooves, it can handle any weather as it removes water with ease and maintains a good grip on the road thereby ensuring good handling of the car. This is important as wet road create dangerous driving conditions. Most accidents during wet conditions are due to hydroplaning and the risk increase with bad tires and when you have low remaining tread depth.

All-season tires are a great option for all year round driving in areas with mild year-round weather where they are well equipped to perform safely and precisely in all conditions year-round. With many new innovations to help protect from hydroplaning as well as unexpected dangers on the road. All-season tires are also a great complement to the winter tires, that then should be used for the period of the year where you have freezing temperatures and winter conditions such as snow, ice and slush. All you need to do is to make a timely change before the first snow arrives and then shift back once the snow has melted away and spring has arrived. You also need to remember that all-season tires become hard at low temperatures, so when the temperature drops below 45 degrees Fahrenheit the winter tires show better performance.
