All-Season Passenger Tyre
All-Season Passenger Tyres
The hallmarks of all-season passenger tyres are a comfortable ride, year-round readiness and long tread life. They’re engineered to provide excellent performance on any paved surface and in all four seasons.
Designed with traditional passenger vehicles in mind, these are the go-to tyre for coupes, sedans and crossovers. Within this style, there are several sub-categories that vary according to tread life, responsiveness, road noise and fuel-efficiency.
Finding the right tyre for your vehicle means matching the available features and benefits to your desired driving experience.
These tyres feature versatile tread compounds that allow reliable handling, high mileage wear rates, and comfy rides year-round. If you live somewhere that sees deep snow or ice, you may, however, need to switch out your all-season tyres for a dedicated set of winter/snow tyres.
These are a step up, commonly found on hot rods, muscle cars and performance light trucks. Their lower profile gives your ride sporty good looks, along with 365 days of performance handling that all-season tyres are known for.
Another full step up in handling, high performance tyres are best suited for sports cars and refined sedans. Offering all-season control and a plusher ride, the smartly-designed treads grip the pavement in adverse conditions while also keeping road noise to a minimum. Reinforced plies of steel and belts allow a faster speed rating than basic all-season models.
Ultra-High Performance All-Season
What puts these over the top in terms of performance? Ultra-high performance tyres are best suited to sports cars and exotics and can feature the highest performance ratings. With incredible handling and braking in dry conditions, some models even deliver run-flat technology.
Standard Touring All-Season
Touring tyres are designed for greater ride comfort and long life. Circumferential grooves and asymmetrical tread give a stable, effortless ride, while lateral notches and sipes whisk away rain and thin layers of snow. A great tyre for long drives on cruise control.
Grand Touring All-Season
If you’re looking for a touring tyre’s comfort with better performance capability Grand Touring tyres might be the way to go. Grand Touring tyres take standard touring tyres and advance them with improved handling. They look great, and some even feature the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol issued by the AU Tyre Manufacturer’s Association for their ability to handle in severe snow.
