Can I drive in the snow with them?
It is generally not advised to drive in snow with all season tyres. Their intermediate rubber compounds help them adjust to icy conditions; however, they do not provide the same traction in snow as winter tyres.
Goodyear all season tyres meet high standards for performance in winter conditions and bear the same ‘M+S‘ and ‘Snowflake’ designations as winter tyres, so if you get light or infrequent snowfall and temperatures that rarely drop below freezing in winter, then you might want to consider all-season tyres.
That being said, bouts of extreme snow are very rare in the UK, so if you are looking for an all-rounder that can handle ice, all season tyres are a safe alternative. There is no legal requirement for winter tyres in the UK, unlike some European countries such as Sweden. Make sure you’re aware of the dangers of winter driving before you buy.
