With so many tire options available, it can get overwhelming to know what type of tire is best. One tire type that is often mentioned is the All-Season tire. With a name that sounds too good to be true, consumers naturally have questions about what All-Season tires are really good for.

The truth is that good quality All-Season tires are a fantastic, long-wearing, and versatile tire option that many drivers can leave on their cars year-round. All-Season tires are designed to handle the weather conditions that are typical of each season. They perform well in both wet and dry driving conditions, and some can also handle light snow, if they have the correct rating.
All-Season tires are well-known to provide a comfortable and quiet ride, and many offer long-lasting tread compounds to extend the life of the tire. If you live in a region without extreme weather patterns, All-Season tires may save you from having to buy separate sets of tires dedicated for summer and winter.

Are All-Season Tires Good for Winter?

Since these tires are called “All-Season” tires, many people want to know if they can leave them on their vehicles during winter, but not every All-Season tire can stand up to freezing and snowy conditions. An All-Season tire that can handle winter weather should have the M+S Rated stamp on the tire, indicating that the tire maintains traction in light to moderate snowy weather. In addition, All-Season tires that stand up to winter weather have tread patterns designed to quickly evacuate water to help prevent hydroplaning and give improved traction on wet surfaces.
For regions with more extreme winter weather, switching to dedicated winter tires, like a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake/Severe Snow Rated tire or studded snow tires is advised, and may even be required by law.

Which All-Season Tires are Best?

The Groundspeed Voyager GT exceeds the criteria of a quality, long-lasting, and reliable All-Season tire. The Voyager GT’s 3D shoulder grooves were precisely engineered to keep road noise down and increase riding comfort, and three wide vertical grooves on the tire tread evacuate water to prevent hydroplaning and give better handling. In designing the asymmetric tread pattern, the Voyager GT’s engineers combined dry grip technology with rapid water dispersal to provide more tire contact with the road to enhance grip. The larger tread blocks on the outside of the tire give better cornering. This feature, combined with the Voyager GT’s wear-resistant shoulder’s heat-resistant bars, makes for more even, long-lasting tread wear.
The Voyager GT is M+S Rated (Mud and Snow), and is backed by Groundspeed’s GroundUp 50K Mileage Warranty, and Road Hazard Coverage, making the Voyager GT an All-Season tire drivers can truly rely upon.
