All-season tyres

Discover the Versatility of All-Season Tyres

All-season tyres are the jack-of-all-trades in the world of tyres, designed to perform in a wide spectrum of weather conditions. Their key features include tread patterns that efficiently dispel water and slush, maintain grip on both dry and wet surfaces, and provide some traction on snowy or icy roads. The rubber composition of all-season tyres is designed to remain supple across a variety of temperatures, unlike summer tyres that harden in cold weather or winter tyres that soften in the heat.

The advantage of all-season tyres is their convenience and cost-effectiveness. With all-season tyres, you eliminate the need for bi-annual tyre changes required with summer and winter tyres, thereby saving time, money, and storage space. However, as a compromise between summer and winter tyres, their longevity may be slightly compromised.

All-season tyres are an excellent choice for drivers in mild climates where weather conditions are not excessively harsh or unpredictable. While they can handle a light dusting of snow and ice, their performance in extreme winter conditions won't match that of dedicated winter tyres. Likewise, their handling at high speeds and in hot temperatures might not be on par with summer tyres. All-season tyres are marked with an M+S symbol, indicating their ability to cope with mud and snow. However, this symbol isn't regulated and doesn't guarantee a specific level of performance. Some all-season tyres might also feature a three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol, which indicates that they've been tested and approved for snow and ice performance.

Winter Driving with All-Season Tyres: Things to Know

When it comes to driving in winter, tyre condition and suitability are of utmost importance. Ensure your tyres are in good shape, correctly inflated, and suitable for your vehicle type. For winter driving on all-season tyres, it's recommended that the tread depth is slightly greater than the minimum 1.6mm, ideally around 3mm to 4mm. This gives better grip and handling in winter conditions.

All-season tyres are considered winter tyres and carry either the snowflake symbol or the M+S symbol to indicate their suitability for snowy and icy conditions. While all-season tyres aren't mandatory in Ireland, they're a practical choice for those who want to avoid bi-annual tyre changes. However, they may not perform as well as dedicated winter tyres in extreme winter conditions, or as summer tyres at high speeds or temperatures. Before travelling to other countries during winter, make sure to check their regulations regarding winter tyres and snow chains, as these can vary.
