Best All Season Tyres

Post by Pauly1 » Sat Feb 13, 2021 12:57 pm

I have Tekna 65 plate with 225/45R19 tyres (for good weather driving). I’m considering replacing these with All Season tyres and would be grateful for any advice on what best to buy. I live in the High Wycombe area. Thanks.

Pauly1, I am assuming as you have stated that you are looking for an "All Weather" Tire" for Summer / Winter Use. Over here they are called M&S Tires and are used a lot, but most have two sets of wheels like us for Summer / Winter as it is Safer If and when needed, but expensive !. You have to weigh up the Pros & Cons as like now here we have Snow, Ice, Freezing Rain, Temps down to -18*C and our option is always just for that additional Safety Two Sets. Sorry but I do not have any comment on the "All Weather" but hopefully other members can help - Dave :)
Take a look in the Motoring Press for Tips & Tests !

Here is a comment found from Conti :
The ContiSportContact 3 is Continental Tire's Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of powerful sports cars, sports coupes and luxury sedans. ... Like all summer tires, the Continental ContiSportContact 3 is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

Thanks for the advice re: All Season Tyres. In addition to looking for said tyres (M&S equivalents) I’ve been looking into buying some snow chains. Again, any advice would be appreciated. I was considering the following Thule/Koenig Easy Fit chains - see detail at link:

Thanks Dave. I’ll make sure I get the right M&S tyres and I may invest in the Thule/Koenig Easy Fit chains too.
