Why are all-season tires good?
Many drivers in Athens like all season tires because they provide good performance in most weather conditions. All season tires were first engineered in the 1970s. To create a tire that could provide good handling and reliable stopping in different seasons, engineers and designers had to sacrifice some other attributes.
All-seasons perform well on hot, dry roads. They can perform in wet weather, too, but very slick surfaces can still be a problem. And all-seasons perform well in cool temperatures, but there is a limit. All-seasons are great for driving over wet leaves in autumn and muddy roads in spring, but once the temperature dips below seven degrees Celsius, you should strongly consider switching tires.
All-season tires are not the same as all-weather tires.
According to some stats, 49% of Canadian drivers try to use all-seasons in winter. At Brockville Oil and Tire, we advise against this. Cold weather causes the rubber compounds in all-seasons to stiffen, and this results in poorer handling and longer braking distances.
Winter tires have different rubber compounds special tread designs to help them grip cold roads. This is also true of all-weather tires which are suitable Canadian tires for all seasons, including winter.
All-seasons vs. summers
All-season tread patterns are great for offering traction on dry roads and for stopping quickly when it’s hot out, and summer tires are the same. Summer tires provide great traction for sharp turns and handling when the pavement has been heated up by the summer sun.Summer tires are a personal choice. For the highest performance possible, you may prefer to switch to summer tires in June. But all-season tires are perfectly fine for summer, as well.
Summer driving is markedly different from winter driving. Cold weather, snow, and ice are driving hazards, so snow tires are demonstrably safer than all-season tires in the coldest months.Summer tires are designed to give you peak performance in summer, but they aren’t safer than all-seasons, so it’s very much a personal choice up to each individual driver.
