What should you look for when comparing the all-season tires in the market?
Treadwear and tire speed are important elements that decide the quality of any tire, including your all-season tires.
The treadwear grade is related to the expected life of the tire. The amount of tread on a tire is critical in determining how well it will vacate water to maintain contact with the road in the rain. If your tires wear out quickly, your safety may be at risk. Therefore higher the treadwear of your tire, the better is its quality.
The tire speed rating is the maximum speed that a tire can safely carry a load for a sustained amount of time in ideal conditions.
Tire companies offer tires with different treadwear and tire speed. Go online to do your research and read reviews car owners who’ve used their products. This will help you understand the benefits and downsides of each brand.
Where do you need to go to buy all-season tires?
We always recommend that you buy your tires from a licensed dealer.
Do you need to change all four tires into all-season tires?
Yes, we advise that all four tires be the same make, model, and design.
Can you drive winter tires in the summer?
Tempting as it might be to leave your winter tires on for the summer, our tire specialists strongly advise against this practice. Driving with winter tires in summer can increase stopping distances, make it difficult to manoeuver the vehicle, and also increase the risk of hydroplaning on wet pavement.
Keeping your winter tires on during summer does not just make driving difficult; it’s also dangerous. It increases the risk of a blowout because the rubber compound in winter tires isn’t designed to dispel heat. Equally important, if you continue to use winter tires in summer, your vehicle will need more fuel. This is not good for your pocket or the environment.
