Winter, Summer, and All-Season: Which Tyre to Go for and When?

by Farnsfield Auto Centre Auto Centre centre

Like the engine oil, your car tyres also need periodic changes. Here, changing does not mean permanent replacement but swapping them as season changes.

The variable weather conditions in the UK require you to switch to tyres that are fit for that specific time. That’s why you have winter and summer car tyres in Newark. And, an alternative to both of them is all-season tyres.

So, what makes these suitable for a particular season?

Let’s understand it in some details.

Winter Tyres

With the onset of October, winter tyres are the BFF of your vehicle. These car tyres in Newark are ideal up to April when temperatures are below 7°C.

Snow, ice, mud, and slush are a few road conditions that winter tyres can tackle smoothly. Nothing grips snow better than snow itself. These tyres use precisely the same principle to their advantage. Cavities made by deep tread patterns accommodate snow and delivers more traction for your car on such roads.

What more?

Also, the high-density sipes on these Tyres Newark do the job of draining water more rapidly to curb hydroplaning.

Winter tyres remain soft during the season owing to their high natural rubber content. It helps these to adjust to various road conditions.

How to recognise winter tyres?

Winter tyres typically come with a three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol. Also, there may be “M-S”, “M&S”, or “M+S” lettering that appears beside the 3PMSF sign. It suggests that is tyre is capable of handling mud and snow.

Which one to choose?

Few of the Winter Tyres Newark you can check out:

  • Bridgestone Blizzak LM001

  • Dunlop Winter Sport 5 (Also available for SUVs)

  • Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow

Summer tyres

When the temperature remains continuously above 7°C, it is time to switch to summer tyres. Summer tyres have 3 to 4 longitudinal grooves that run throughout their circumference. These grooves are exceptional for evacuating water to decrease hydroplaning. The tyres also have minimal sipes to offer similar performance.

But wait, there is more.

The larger tread block of summer tyres ensures that you remain in control of your vehicle over dry and wet road conditions.

Summer tyres are made from a harder compound does not lose shape even in extremely high temperatures. Thus, these can effectively adjust to dry and wet surfaces.

Which one to choose?

Few of the summer tyres that you can opt for:

  • Bridgestone Potenza S001

  • Bridgestone Turanza T005

  • Dunlop Sport Maxx Race 2

  • Pirelli P Zero

  • Pirelli CInturato P7

All-season tyres

All-season tyres lie somewhere between summer and winter tyres. These tyres are capable of handling all road conditions irrespective of the season. Hence, all-season tyres in Newark also, eliminate the need for periodic tyre swaps.

All-season tyres are made of a compound that is neither hard like summer tyres nor soft like winter tyres. Thus, these can adapt to every surface conditions.

Which one to choose?

  • Pirelli Cinturato All Season

  • Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

  • Bridgestone Weather Control A005
