Average Test Review
Off-road all-season tyres differ significantly from the all-season tyres for other vehicles. The fact is that the off-road all-season tyres must provide significantly more grip than normal M + S tyres. They can currently be purchased at favorable prices.
The test shows that the off-road all-season tyres from five well-known manufacturers are once again at the lead. These are the brands Michelin, Cooper, Dunlop, Pirelli, and the Finnish manufacturer Nokian. Other suitable off-road all-season that were conceived for normal cars but that have also achieved good results in the all-wheel test are produced by Goodyear as well as Pirelli and Fulda. The test clearly shows that no single off-road all-season tyre can meet all the requirements that are placed on such tyres. The Weather Master S/T2 made by Cooper is regarded as a particularly cost-effective off-road all-season tyre. It performs extremely well on snow and ice – even when compared with expensive European competitors. However, this is only the case at the first glance. When the snow begins to melt, the performance of these tyres drops drastically. Also in terms of stopping distances (both in dry and wet conditions) the tyres cannot keep up with the off-road all-season tyres of European manufacturers. Before buying tyres, it is important to review the tests and look for the highest possible performance in all areas – you may, however, have to pay a bit extra for the off-road all-season tyres.
It is particularly important that the off-road all-season tyres achieve optimal results on snow and slippery surfaces. This can sometimes be at the expense of the rolling resistance or rolling noise. However, when it comes to off-road all-season tyres, certain compromises must be made when it comes to comfort – safety always comes first. Even at 40 km/h, low-quality off-road all-season tyres have a braking distance that is 10 m longer than higher-quality tyres. That is a huge difference when it comes to your safety. Under average winter conditions, the off-road all-season tyres of German producers are all consistently adapted to be safe and reliable. However, you should take care not to use the off-road all-season tyres in particularly snowy areas or on extremely snowy days. If you want to get the most out of your SUV, you simply cannot avoid buying real winter and summer tyres.
Compared with off-road all-season tyres, real summer tyres tend to perform better in tests. The durability of summer tyres is simply greater than that of off-road all-season tyres. When it comes to handling, summer tyres are simply the best solution – particularly with respect to noise and wear. The off-road all-season tyres can be purchased for favorable prices online.
