SUV & 4x4 All Season Tyres

SUV All Weather Tyres

All Season or All Weather tyres are designed to perform in both summer and winter weather conditions – from sunny spring days, wet autumn afternoons and even snowy winter conditions. In the UK, All Season or All Weather tyres are a great choice given some days we can see multiple weather conditions which could potentially limit driver mobilisation – especially during winter snow fall.

An SUV or 4x4 has different tyre requirements when it comes to All Weather or All Season tyres, versus a regular passenger car. An SUV/4x4 puts different demands on tyres due to the increased weight of the vehicle and a much higher centre of gravity. For this reason, it’s important to ensure when selecting new tyres that they are designed for use on an SUV/4x4 vehicle.

When it comes to finding the next set of tyres for your SUV/4x4, you should consider fitting All Season or All Weather tyres if you want to benefit from:

  • Combining the performance of both summer and winter tyres – meaning you won’t have to change your tyres during periods of poor winter weather
  • The ability to remain mobile during periods of snow and ice – especially in rural, ungritted areas - as All Season tyres have performance characteristics of a winter tyre below 7c in being able to provide grip and traction thanks to the sipes
  • Some all season patterns such as the Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 are legal in countries where winter tyres are mandatory thanks to the 3PMSF mark on Goodyear All Season tyres – which is important if you drive abroad during the winter months
  • Ability to perform similarly to a summer tyre in terms of providing outstanding dry and wet handling/braking

How to Choose the Best Tyres for An SUV

When searching for your next set of SUV tyres, there are a number of factors you should take into consideration before purchasing:

  • What size your tyres are – this is of great importance for SUVs where load ratings in particularly can be higher or even include an XL (extra load) marking in the tyre size to cover the additional weight of the vehicle – learn more here
  • What tyres came fitted to your vehicle as Original Equipment (OE) – OE tyres are designed in conjunction with the vehicle manufacturer to provide optimal performance/comfort/handling characteristics so can often be a good place to start
  • Weather & Seasonality – to maximise your SUV performance and handling you can choose between an all season, summer or winter tyre designed to suit your needs and the climate you live in

About All Season Tyres: FAQs

How Do SUV All Season Tyres Work?

All Season SUV tyres are designed to combine the technologies from both summer and winter tyres to produce a tyre that can adapt to both sunshine and snow – and everything else in between. All Season or All Weather tyres help your vehicle to maintain performance and safety, especially in the kind of climate we see in the UK between warm summers and blustery winters.

When Should You Fit All Season Tyres on an SUV?

All Season or All Weather tyres are a great choice to fit to your SUV if you are looking for a tyre that is designed to perform all year round without the need to change your tyres seasonally. Although in the UK we see mild winters, All Season tyres are also great for use during heavy downpours which we see all year round, as well as their design containing sipes to provide traction and grip on the occasional winter snowfall. 

Which is the most durable SUV Tyre?

The Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 SUV tyre now features technology that reduces deformation of the tyre during heavy manoeuvres through the strong crown and shoulder blocks.

How long do All Season SUV Tyres Last?

The lifespan of an All Season tyre, like summer tyres, is dependent on how well it is maintained. Tyres benefit from good maintenance, correct pressures, vehicle alignment and are also dependent on driving styles. Smooth driving helps to extend tyre life, whilst aggressive driving can reduce it.
