What is an all-season tyre, exactly?

An all-season tyre is a hybrid tyre which can be used both in summer and winter conditions.

All-season tyres combine the technology of winter and summer tyres to enable safe driving at all times of year, on both dry and wet surfaces and even in snow.

Although common in much of Europe, driving with summer tyres during winter is not advisable. All-season tyres offer a safer alternative, ensuring better road handling and grip in difficult conditions.

As for those of you who are used to alternating your summer/winter tyres twice a year, switching to all-season tyres will simplify your life and save you time!

All-season tyres - are they a suitable alternative to winter tyres?

All-season tyres perform well in temperatures ranging from -10 °C to +30 °C.

These versatile tyres are designed with grooves similar to those of winter tyres, ensuring good handling even on wet roads.

If you live in a region where mild winters are the norm and snowfall is only an occasional occurrence, then the smooth, quiet drive that comes with all-season tyres may be an appropriate alternative for you. There is no need to swap these tyres throughout the year, saving you both time and energy.

Winter tyres remain the ultimate tyres for extreme conditions such as heavy snow or ice.

Michelin’s CrossClimate range: what is it?

Although they remain the best choice for driving in extreme weather, winter tyres are not as effective in summer, particularly when it comes to fuel consumption and braking distance on dry or wet roads.

Thanks to their combined summer/winter approach, MICHELIN’s CrossClimate range stands out from traditional all-season tyres by offering a unique design which can adapt to changing climate. The CrossClimate range is suitable for any vehicle, from small cars and saloons, to SUVs and vans.
