Comparing tyre performance: all-season vs winter tyres
As all-season tyres work all year-round, they combine the best of both, summer and winter tyres. That’s why all-season tyres have a longer braking distance than summer tyres on dry and wet ground. Still, the braking distance is shorter than that of a winter tyre. It’s the other way around for snow: While all-season tyres brake well on snow, they are not on par with winter tyres.
So, we know that winter tyres perform well on snow when braking and handling. But can you still use winter tyres all year?
