The four-season rubber technocrat is not for everyone

Nowadays, the global demand for four-season tires has increased significantly, and to meet user demand, Continental has developed a tire for those who want to respond to summer and winter conditions with the same solution. Four-season tires may be a suitable alternative under certain conditions of use and use.

Continental continues to place a strong emphasis on safety and, in light of this, has developed an all-season tire that delivers excellent performance all year round. This tire is a good choice in regions where there is neither extreme cold nor exceptionally high heat, i.e. where summers are not very hot and winters are mostly mild.

Four-season tires work best on roads where the road surface is not covered with prolonged and deep snow, meaning the tire does not need to travel in the toughest winter conditions. In addition, a four-season tire can be a good solution for drivers who cover a few kilometers a year. For others, Continental, the manufacturer of premium tires, maintains its recommendation that it is advisable to use a summer tire in summer conditions and a winter tire in winter weather, as four-season tires are just a compromise between the two options.

“By using four-season tires, owners don’t have the burden of seasonal replacement as they don’t have to visit a rubber workshop twice a year. However, they still need to have their tires checked, as certain defects can only be detected and remedied by trained and experienced professionals. Each such inspection shall include not only the inspection of the tires but also the inspection of the condition of the rims or valves. ‘

– said Illés Menkó, technical expert of Continental Hungaria Kft.

Marked on the sidewall as “three mountain peaks snowflake” (3PMSF), the tire fully complies with even the most stringent winter tire regulations in European countries.

Outstanding results in independent tests

The results of independent tests can play a crucial role in the selection of tires. AllSeasonContact ™ regularly closes tests with outstanding results, placing it in the most recommended category. The following are some of the biggest successes:

AllSeasonContact ™ took first place in the ADAC 2020 four-season test (235/55 R17), highlighting its performance on wet and snowy roads. In the 2019 four-season tire test (205/60 R16) conducted jointly by the German ACE and GTÜ and the Austrian ARBÖ, AllSeasonContact ™ emerged as the winner.

The tire received the highly recommended rating, while also leading the way in the categories of handling on wet road surfaces, handling in wet conditions, and rolling resistance. Auto Bild’s 2020 super four-season tire test (205/55 R16) found that these tires are characterized by convincing four-season performance, with excellent winter performance and a very good price-performance ratio. In addition, exceptional aquaplaning performance, precise steering precision, high mileage and fuel-saving rolling resistance were highlighted.
