Different tires are ideal for different types of weather and conditions. For example, winter tires have complex tread patterns and deep grooves that help you drive safely on snowy and icy roads, while summer tires have shallower tread depths that are ideal for dry and wet conditions in warmer weather.
Having the appropriate tires in the appropriate seasons is important, but not everyone wants to buy two separate sets of tires. Luckily, all-season tires exist for drivers who live in areas with moderate weather. Here are our top three benefits of all-season tires:
- Versatile- As you can tell from their name, all-season tires are suitable for many different conditions. They grip the road in both warmer and colder weather. With a rubber compound that stays flexible at temperatures just above freezing, all-season tires can still perform when there is mild snow or ice.
- Long Lifespan- All-season tires tend to last much longer than summer or winter tires. According to Forbes, they can even last for up to 80,000 miles. In addition, the symmetrical tread patterns of all-season tires allow you more options for rotation, so you can even out the tread and extend the life of your tires.
- Save Money- Because they are so long-lasting and you don’t have to buy both summer and winter tires, all-season tires can save you a lot of money.
