Other tire dealers call these ‘all-season’ tires, but we call them 3-seasons because they offer good performance only in spring, summer and fall.
In warm temperatures, 3-season tires deliver reliable braking in wet and dry conditions, and they offer a quiet, comfortable ride as well as good fuel economy. To give a longer tread life, 3-season tires generally have a harder rubber compound, which loses grip at 7 C. The channels in the tread pattern also tend to clog with ice, snow and slush, creating a slippery surface in winter.
In fact, Kal’s Tire Testing showed on an icy road, a brand-new 3-season tire stopped in 32.3 metres, while a 75% worn winter tire stopped in 29.7 m.
