ADVANTAGES OF ALL-SEASON TYRES
Driving with all-season tyres has many advantages – only on icy surfaces they cannot always keep up with the real winter tyres. Many experts also find that all-season tyres are optimally suited to the winter weather and road conditions in the UK. The softer rubber compound of the tyres and their lamellae resemble the ones of winter tyres and ensure a secure grip on open ground, snow and mud. At the same time, traction is fully assured even in summer. Although it is not prohibited by law to drive with winter tyres during the warmer season, the softer rubber compound of winter tyres wear rapidly and is therefore not recommended for economic reasons – and for your safety.
All-season are also not recommended during the warm season if you do drive many miles and at higher speeds.
All-season tyres are a great option for people who own a smaller car and drive more locally.
SAFE DRIVING WITH ALL-SEASON TYRES – EVEN IN WINTER
Driving in wintry weather is a challenge for many drivers. Do not wait too long to fit your all-season or winter tyres. The four tyres of the car should be identical, i.e. come from the same manufacturer and be the same model. As tyres wear unevenly, you should make sure that the best tyres are rear-mounted when you use your old all-season tyres again.
The tyres with the best traction on the rear axle ensure ideal driving safety. Never drive with too old tyres. This is especially true for the winter season. Even if the tread depth has not fallen below the minimum, the rubber loses its good handling characteristics. All-season tyres have a good grip thanks to a soft rubber compound. Over time, however, the rubber hardens and loses its suppleness. The consequence of this is that you drive similarly unsafe as with summer tyres on a wintry surface. Since 2012 there is a new EU directive, according to which tyre manufacturers must uniformly label their tyres. This leads to easier comparability of tyres for consumers. Please note that the specification of wet grip on the tyre refers to the braking distance on wet surfaces. Winter conditions such as snow or slipperiness are not included here. The indication M + S, which is on all recognised winter tyres, does not mean that the tyre is actually optimally suitable for ice and snow.

Of course, your road safety depends not only on the tyres, but also on how careful and reasonable you drive. Avoid driving in extreme soil and weather conditions. Drive at moderate speed and keep sufficient distance to the vehicle in front of you. The air pressure is also crucial for your friction tyres. Check the air pressure regularly. If the air pressure is poorly adjusted, your vehicle will become more difficult to steer.
