For the winter season it is recommended that you use winter-approved all-weather tires, a year-round tire you can use in all weather conditions, whether there is winter or summer weather. When the temperature drops they act as winter tires and at high temperatures they act as summer tires.
It is important to understand that despite the name, all-season tires should not be used during wintertime. They are to be used in all seasons except the winter season. All-season tires, just like summer tires, become hard at low temperatures, as the rubber used is not optimized for low temperatures. Hard rubber can’t create the same grip and traction as soft tires.
When summer arrives, there are some safety tips to help you stay safe in hot summer weather. Probably the most important thing to ensure safe driving is to equip your vehicle with high-quality tires, with good options being all-season tires or SUV all-season tires. There are many good all-season tires on the market for passenger cars and SUVs alike, including the Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 and Nokian eNTYRE C/S.
The Nokian eNTYRE C/SSUV tire is an example of tires designed to focus on performance, strength
and safety. It features cutting-edge advancements like Aramid Sidewall
technology, silent groove design and Silent Sidewall Technology, just to name a
few. These are important features that protect against hydroplaning, which often
a problem during summer rains and a major reason for summer accidents. Besides high-quality
tires, there are some other things that can be done to stay safe when driving
in hot summer weather.
It is always important to make sure tires are inflated to
the proper level. This helps with rolling resistance and thereby fuel economy.
This will also help protect against blowouts, which can be a real risk in hot
weather when air in the tires expands. Some other things to consider: staying
cool in the summer by starting with a cool car via parking in the shade or a
garage. This way the car will be at a cooler temperature and the need for air
conditioning will be reduced so you can save on gas. Before heading out on a
summer road trip, make sure all fluids are topped off and stay hydrated. It is
also prudent to keep some water in the car in case you’re stuck in a traffic
It is also important to stay focused and keep your eyes on the road. Summer driving is one of the riskiest times of year to drive. Statistics show that there are more fatal accidents in August than any other time of the year. This is partially due to an increase of people on the road, especially with family vacations in the summer. Another reason is unexpected rain showers that increase the risk of hydroplaning.
All-season tires are a great choice for your hybrid or electric car if you live in an area that does not experience severe winters. This allows you to keep one set of tires throughout the year. Most hybrid and electric cars come equipped with all-season tires from the factory. This is because with the many advances in all-season tires over the years, they has become the tires of choice for many car manufacturers. With lower rolling resistance than ever before, they require less energy for each journey, allowing the electric or hybrid car to go further.
tires, all-season tires are not able to handle
snow and ice and are therefore not marked with the severe service emblem [also
known as the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol] that designates them for use
in severe winter conditions. This is different than an all-weather tire that
does possess this emblem. This is because all-weather tires can be considered
hybrids between an all-season tire and a winter tire. All-season tires are only
safe in the spring, fall and summer seasons, which is the case in many areas in
the United States.
Additionally, an all-season tire like the
Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 has a unique tread pattern that provides excellent wet grip
and a smooth, quiet ride while remaining environmentally friendly. It also has Silent
Sidewall technology that decreases noise and vibration. Polished lateral and
inside grooves also allow water to evacuate, thereby protecting from
hydroplaning. Hydroplaning can also occur when snow melts and there is slush on
All-season tires can be used year-round in
areas without winter weather – or at least without severe winters. The Nokian eNTYRE
2.0’s innovative design provides ultimate safety and excellent handling on both
wet and dry surfaces. This very eco-friendly tire allows for excellent grip so
you can rest assured that braking will not be a problem even with the
additional weight of a hybrid or electric car. This is because hybrid and electric
cars are usually heavier than regular combustion engine cars due to their
battery packs. If you live in an area with 3 seasons. the Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 is
an excellent year-round tire that does not compromise on performance while
remaining environmentally friendly.
