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
Tyres with high wet grip performance (A or B graded) have shorter braking distances on wet roads and are, therefore, safer in the rain. As with fuel efficiency, the D grade isn’t used and there are no plans to use G.
Tyres account for up to 20% of your vehicle’s fuel consumption so, if you want to get more miles per tank of fuel, you should choose tyres with a high fuel efficiency rating. You will also lower your CO2 emissions. It comes down to rolling resistance i.e. the energy lost when a tyre is moving. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy is lost and the lower your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The difference between an A-rated tyre and a G-rated tyre could be as much as 6 litres per 625 miles.
This is the external noise made by the tyre and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tyres.
