The Benefits of All Season Tires
There are a whole lot of choices when it comes to tires, but most drivers opt for all-season tires. There are, of course, plenty of reasons why they’re so popular!
All-season tires are really the best choice for most drivers in Alabama. They don’t perform well in more than about a ½” of snow, but that’s seldom a concern for us in our part of the world anyway. All-season tires are designed for traction on wet or dry pavement and have a reputation for performing well in rain. Their tread pattern is designed to evacuate water away from the tire’s contact patch so there’s always a solid footprint that’s connected to the pavement, helping to avoid hydroplaning.
All-season tires are available at all price points and all sorts of tread formulations and designs. Low-rolling-resistance all-season tires are pretty popular; they use a special tread compound that’s lighter and offers less friction and heat buildup on the highway. Low-rolling-resistance tires can save you several hundreds of dollars in fuel economy over the course of their service life.
All-season tires are typically known for a supple, forgiving ride, great road manners and predictable, safe handling. This makes them an excellent choice for family sedans, coupes, minivans and crossover SUVs. Low highway noise, good road feel and overall comfort – what more could you want out a set of tires?
Tire technology has advanced a great deal for all styles and designs of tires, including much longer wear, and all-season tires are no exception. It’s not unusual to find all-season tires with a 70,000-mile warranty – something that was practically unheard of for any tires, at any price point, 20 years ago.
