Here at Bourne Car & Van Hire, we stock an extensive range of All-Season tyres.
If you are lucky enough to live in a part of the country where you don't experience severe winters or scorching summers, then you will most definitely benefit from not having to change your tyres each season. If this is the case then why not invest in some high-quality all-season tyres from us at Bourne Car & Van Hire? All-season tyres or all-weather tyres as they are often referred to are the most cost-effective solution as they are cleverly designed to work well throughout the year whatever the weather or road conditions may be.
These tyres are manufactured using a rubber compound which is used to allow the smooth compound of summer tyres and the more robust compound of winter tyres. What the typical UK motorist class as standard or original equipment tyres are in fact summer tyres! These tyres are designed to enable outstanding grip and braking performance in both wet and dry conditions but more importantly, this performance only applies in warmer temperatures. During the winter the summer rubber compounds become brittle therefore making them less efficient.
All-season tyres were designed to perform well in whatever the weather, maybe a glorious hot summers day or a cold and icy winter one. These tyres are specially manufactured using similar compounds to those used in winter tyres to retain the flexibility when it is cold therefore providing optimum safety which enhances the overall breaking distances over the summer tyre. Sipes (which are the little cuts inside the tread blocks) is also a vital factor which essentially allows the tyre to provide further grip to the snow. To differentiate the difference between your typical everyday tyre and an All-season tyre is the mountain/snowflake symbol which is present on the tyre's sidewall. This unique marking indicates that the tyre has winter driving proficiency and is also a legal requirement when driving in countries where winter tyres are compulsory.
All Season tyres tread pattern looks similar to that of a summer tyre and is designed to enable high performance during the winter/summer months. To avoid the hassle and cost of having to change your tyres to suit the seasons, an All-Season tyre is a perfect solution and in most cases is as little as 20% more than your usual summer tyre.
