A growing number of motorists are fitting their vehicles with all-season tyres. Not only is the performance of all-season tyres constantly improving, this type of tyre is so versatile that motorists can drive safely all year round.
The all-season tyre is the ideal road partner for any motorist driving in regions where the temperature is typically between 0°C and 20°C.
Outside this temperature range, the tyres will continue to function well but will start to perform less effectively than winter tyres when below 0°C or summer tyres when above 20°C.
However, the differences are barely perceptible.
Are all-season tyres approved for the winter?
All-season tyres with the 3PMSF (3 Peak Mountain Snow Flake) mark are approved for driving on snow in the same way as a winter tyre.
