SUV all-season tires versus all-weather tires

· Tires
All-weather tires
SUV all-season tires hold an advantage over all-weather tires in all other season but winter. This is because since they do not hold the “Three Peak Mountain Snowflake” emblem, the all-season tires do not have to uphold the same performance standard on snow and ice. This in turn means that they do not have the same aggressive tread and rubber compound like SUV all-weather tires and SUV winter tires. All-season tires with their less aggressive tread and rubber compound therefore offer both better gas mileage and driving comfort. In many areas of the United States they can even be used year-round as many areas maintain mild weather throughout all seasons. The advantage being that they outperform all-weather tires in all seasons but winter. The all-season tires are great for 3 seasons, mainly spring to fall.
It is also important when shopping for tires to buy tires with the right dimensions for your SUV make and model. This means that if your SUV came with the tire dimensions of 225/65/17 that you buy, for example, 225/65/17 all-season tires or 225/65/17 winter tires. You might wonder what these markings mean? The first number signifies the width in millimeters, the second number is the tire’s section height in percentage of the tire’s section width, with the last number being the diameter of the rim in inches. There are many good quality SUV all-season tires on the market, tires like the Nokian eNTYRE C/S SUV all-season tires.
The Nokian eNTYRE C/S is an all new all-season tire especially designed for SUVs and developed for the North American market. They feature the latest technologies ensuring uncompromising performance, durability, comfort and safety on snowy, wet and dry surfaces alike. It also provides the best hydroplaning protection. This is a very important feature as hydroplaning can be very serious and quite frightening. Also, with the heavier weight of SUVs and especially electric SUVs hydroplaning protection is very important. Even though the SUV provides better traction than regular passenger cars it is even more dependent of good quality tires with good grip and traction which also allows for better braking. These tires also offer the Nokian Tyres Aramid Sidewall technology, this sidewall compound is exceptionally durable and puncture resistant.
If the choice exists to equip your vehicle with all-season tires, then that is by far the better choice. With the above-mentioned advantages over the all-weather tires there is always the option if residing in an area with severe winter weather, to place dedicated snow tires on your vehicle during the winter months. This actually remains the best option for both safety and handling on snow and ice. Whether the choice is studded or non-studded winter tires, nothing outperforms a dedicated winter tire on snow and ice. If the area where you live does not have severe winter conditions than the all-season tires can be used year-round offering a durable, comfortable and silent driving experience.
