What to consider when choosing all-season tires
When choosing all season tires, you need to keep in mind that they do not carry the “Three Peak Mountain Snowflake” symbol and are not to be used in severe winter conditions. This means that if you reside in an area with severe winters you would be better off with either an all-weather tire or winter tires, both carry this emblem. If on the other hand, you live in an area where you do not experience severe winters, like many areas in the United States then the all-season tires are an excellent choice.
If the weather where you live has a mild climate and you would like to equip your car with one set of tires for the year then it would probably be to your advantage to use all-season tires over all weather tires. The reason for this is that the all-weather tire has a more aggressive tread to allow it to be marked with the “Three Peak Mountain Snowflake” symbol, like winter tires. In fact, the all-weather tire is like a hybrid between winter and all-season tires. The all-season tires not having this rating, and therefore not needing as aggressive treading, allows them to perform better in the other seasons of the year. There are many great all-season tires on the market, tires like the Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 which allows for excellent handling allowing you to get the most out of your driving.
The Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 allows for excellent grip with its “high modulus tread compound” and “comfort base compound” that work together to create a smooth and comfortable ride. This new silica compound with its expanding molecular structure strengthens the stiffness of the tread pattern increasing the tires handling properties. It is also able to work in a wide temperature range making this tire ideal spring to late fall. The compromise-free design that an all-season tire offers allows for better handling as well as traction in warm weather compared to all-weather tires. With all-season tires, driving on both wet and dry roads will be a much more enjoyable experience. The Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 all-season tires have the modern silica compound with its expanding molecular structure it allows stiffness even throughout a wide temperature range. You will be able to maintain precise handling both while accelerating and braking and even when going around corners in high speeds. This tire has a specialized tread pattern that ensure more contact with the surface of the road and superior braking at both high and low speeds on wet and dry roads.
All-season tires are a great choice for areas not experiencing severe winter weather and allow for one set of tires throughout the year, eliminating the need to change tires. There have also been a lot of advancements in the manufacturing of all-season tires allowing for a more silent ride while also reducing vibration and rolling resistance thereby making them more fuel efficient and an environmentally friendly tire.
