The AllSeasonExpert has a directional tread pattern with a wide, longitudinal groove. This improves its water and slush exclusion and gives you secure, comfortable handling when driving through puddles. While you're enjoying the rain, your tyres will protect you from aquaplaning.
More and more European countries are introducing winter tyre obligations but what if you only drive a small car, you live somewhere with relatively moderate temperatures, or you simply don’t drive enough to justify changing to seasonal tyres? Our AllSeasonExpert tyres are marked with both M+S and the mountain/snowflake symbols so, although they’re for year-round use, they qualify as winter tyres.
We first developed the directional tread for sporty vehicles as it offers excellent handing, reliable grip and an enjoyable drive when driving at speed. The tyre's designed for even, consistent wear which means you benefit from quiet running and comfort.
Wear and Cost of Ownership
Buying one set of tyres rather than separate summer and winter ones is an obvious financial incentive, but it's not the only consideration. If you drive fewer than 10,000 km per year, and are changing your tyres according to the season, you won't be getting your full money's worth. The season tyres will get spongy after five or six years so, even if they have plenty of tread left, their safety won't be guaranteed. With AllSeasonExpert's abrasion-proof and resistant compound, you'll enjoy all the performance you need right up to the tyres' final kilometre.
EU Tyre Label
EU Tyre Label
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
Additional pictograms for snow and icy conditions
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
