All Season Tyres
Be it is a gloriously hot summer day or a cold and icy winter one, all-season tyres are produced to perform well under all the weather conditions. If you live in a part of the country where you don't experience harsh winters or scorching summers, then you are lucky indeed for you will benefit from the all-season tyres for not having to change tyres every season. It does have a ring to it. Doesn’t it? Then why not invest in some high-quality all-season tyres from us at Loughborough Refurbs. All-season tyres or all-weather tyres, as they are often referred to, are the ultimate compromises as they are cleverly designed to work well throughout the year, whatever the weather or road conditions may be.
These tyres are manufactured using a rubber compound which forms the smooth compound of summer tyres and the more robust compound of winter tyres. Whilst the summer tyres are designed to enable excellent grip and braking performance in both wet and dry condition for warmer temperatures, during winters the summer rubber compounds become brittle, therefore making them less efficient.
These tyres are uniquely manufactured using similar compounds as those used in winter tyres to retain flexibility when it is cold. Therefore, it provides higher safety which enhances the overall breaking distances over the summer tyre.
Sipes is also a critical factor which essentially allows the tyre to give more grip in the snow. To differentiate between an everyday tyre and an all-season tyre, look for a mountain/snowflake symbol present on the tyre's sidewall. This unique marking indicates that the tyre has the winter driving proficiency and is also a legal requirement while operating in countries where winter tyres are compulsory.
All-season tyre’s tread pattern looks like that of a summer tyre, and is designed to enable high performance during the winters and also summers. Although the price of an all-season tyre is around 20% more than your usual summer tyre, it is most definitely worth paying extra for.
