Would like to find out of someone has some experience with All Weather Tires on their Jeep? :hail:
I'm assuming you mean All Season as in a mild tread tire with more street driving in mind? If so I like the Continentals I have. Good on wet roads and in modest snow and light mud (very light). Very quiet on the highway. See the signature below.
Falken Wildpeak a/t3w here no complaints, no matter the weather.
All Season is what assume you are looking for
Many out there , start looking at Tire Rack , Tires-Easy and others to find a tread design you like , what you are looking for etc
All Weather tires are not All Season tires - there is a big difference
Since you are in that country north of us , then different names/ different meanings/ different tires
We do not have All Weather tires down here
so more explanation in exactly what you wanted would of helped
Second the previous comment.. never seen nor heard of these in over 30 years of automotive involvement... but I'm in the US. A hybrid all-season/winter tire... interesting.
Can't comment. I think you'll be looking for replies from our Canadian friends, of which there are quite a few on this forum.
October thru Mar 31st, when traveling east past Hope or North-Hwy 99 sea to sky, the BC Gov has regulations and only M+S and Tires with the mountain snowflake rating are legal here for winter use.
Having chains ready is also a good idea for deeper snow with base icy conditions.
Falken Wildpeak a/t3w have the mountain snowflake rating as many other (AT) All terrain tires do.
Thicker sidewalls are an important consideration in the case of a curb strike.
There also is a tread wear rating stamped on tires, the larger the number, the harder compound, = longer life expectancy.
Wrangler Kevlar AT tires snowflake rated, are also available.
We just put Nokian Rotiiva A/T's on the wifes Murano. Haven't had much bad weather since, but so far she loves them. The bit of slick we've had, she hasn't had the traction control or abs kick in. They also have the snowflake symbol.
Fun fact about treadwear ratings.... they are only meaningful when comparing to other tires within that brand. Each manufacturer has their own base standard for the 100 treadwear rating that they compare all their products to in order to get the 350, 400, 600, et al ratings from.
A 400 tread wear rating on a BF Goodrich is not necessarily similar to (certainly not the same as) a 400 rating from any other manufacturer. And tire makers do not need to, nor do they share how they come to the ratings that they do.
Compare with caution.
FYI - All Weather tires have the snowflake symbol on it
Snow tires have snowflake symbols on them
My daughter's Disney Elsa bike has snow flakes on the tires... Sorry couldn't resist, I just wanted to 1 up y'all.
Your daughter's Disney Elsa bike could also benefit from studded tires, for icy conditions in winter!
I'd ride that bike. Elsa's a badass.
Can see it now.............................:Big Laugh:
Got the Nokian Rotiiva AT tires, so far so good
Which from tread design etc is a all season in the USA , few more sipes in them is all
