Passenger / All Season See Brands with Tire Models
Premium Touring All-Season
- 13 to 18 fitments available
- Generally more comfortable and lower noise
- Lower fuel use than UHP tires
- Not ideal on high performance vehicles (Porsche, BMW)
These tires feature substantially more gripping power in wet conditions, along with the smooth ride and low rolling resistance of their summer counterparts. Although many do have somewhat more light winter capability than UHP all-seasons, for example, most of them are still not winter-capable in any real sense.
Grand Touring All-Season tires are often used as Original Equipment and place more emphasis on handling and high-speed capabilities than Standard Touring tires
High Performance All-Season
These particular all-season tires are made for good performance, while adding in wet capabilities. As with most tires labeled “All-Season” they should not actually be trusted in any kind of real winter conditions.
Tires are designed to provide year-round traction (even in light snow) through tread designs and compounds that remain flexible in the cold weather to help blend all-season traction with good handling
Passenger All-Season tires come standard on many sedans and minivans. They are the most popular type of tire and are designed to handle most conditions, including dry and wet pavement and light to moderate snow.
These tires are generally designed for decent handling and good looks, along with somewhat upgraded ride quality
These tires provide year-round traction (even in light snow) and will upgrade the appearance and performance of vehicles originally equipped with Passenger All-Season tires. Most tires offer white letter or black sidewall styling.
Standard Touring All-Season
Standard Touring tires are typically available in the lower speed ratings and higher aspect ratio sizes and place more emphasis on ride comfort and treadwear than Grand Touring tires.
This tire is designed for temporary use only. It can help drivers temporarily regain mobility in the event of a flat tire due to a puncture, cut, road hazard, accident or blowout.
Temporary Spare tires can be recognized by the 'T' for 'Temporary' in front of the tire size description.
Ultra High Performance All-Season
- Typically 18 inches and above
- Designed with sporty handling in mind
- Ideal for performance cars
- OE fitment for margues like Porsche, BMW
The highest level of performance many street drivers will ever need for most weather conditions.
These tires are much the same as UHP summer tires, but with siping or other technologies added to enhance wet grip and hydroplaning resistance. Despite the all-season label, with the notable exception of the Conti DWS, these are not usually tires to be trusted in any kind of snow or ice.
Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season
Sport truck tires are designed to provide style and performance, while offering handling and a smooth, quite ride in an all season tire. Popular on pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles and crossovers, performance sport truck tires have a wide design with a low profile, and come in sizes to fit larger diameter rims.
These tires combine the sporty appearance of Street/Sport Truck tires with much of the ride quality and noise comfort associated with Highway All-Season tires to deliver a sophisticated blend of fashion and function. While they offer all-season versatility, including traction in light snow, tire sizes featuring extremely wide tread widths may limit the traction this type of tire can provide in deep snow.
