SUV all-weather tires are designed to provide versatile performance all year round, which is definitely a bang for the buck for any drivers out there. This because you will not need to switch to winter tires during the cold season or summer tires during the hot season. You can have only one set of all-weather tires, and they will serve you until they are worn out to require replacement. Just make sure that they are properly maintained to be able to get the most out of them.
Even though are easy to use and convenient any month of the year in places that do not experience extreme weather conditions, they have some drawbacks. In places that experience extremely cold winters or very hot summers, their performance can be limited. You will be better off with dedicated winter or summer tires if you come from such areas. For slushy, icy and snowy areas, studded or non-studded winter tires will be required to provide extra extraction and help you have good control over your SUV. For the places that experience very hot summers, high-performance summer tires will work best.
All-weather tires should not be confused with all-season tires. These two names may look like they mean the same thing, but the two tires are totally different. All-weather tires are designed to work well in all four seasons of the year and features the same snowflake symbol that the winter tires have. All-seasons tires, on the hand are only performs optimally in three seasons, that is summer, fall, and spring. In winter, their performance can be less satisfying but that still depends on severity of the winter conditions in the place where you often drive.
