SUV all season tiresare great year-round in mild weather. Let’s face it: there are many states in the United States where the weather stays mild year-round. In these States you would be able to have SUV all-season tires throughout the year. The advantage being that they outperform all-weather tires in all seasons but winter. This is because they allow for a smoother ride and longer tread life while providing optimal handling on both dry and wet roads. All-season tires are great for 3 seasons, mainly spring to fall. If living in an area with severe winters, you would be better off investing in all-weather tires or dedicated SUV winter tires in the winter.
Tires like the Nokian zLine A/S SUV all-season tires are designed focusing on luxurious performance, handling and safety. This is of great advantage if you have a sporty SUV and enjoy luxury performance and handling trough all season, offering ultimate performance through all seasons except winter weather. This is because contrary to winter tires or all-weather tires they do not hold the “Three Peak Mountain Snowflake” symbol. This however is not of any concern if living in an area not experiencing winter weather. They offer high performance throughout the 3 seasons and are designed for supporting the heavier SUV. With cutting edge technologies like “Aramid Sidewall technology,” it assures protection against punctures as the strong aramid fibers strengthen the sidewall rubber to withstand external impacts.
It also provides the best hydroplaning protection. This is a very important feature as hydroplaning, which can consist of both aquaplaning or slushplaning, can be very serious and quite frightening. Also, with the heavier weight of SUVs and especially electric SUVs hydroplaning protection is very important.
