If you are fortunate to live in an area that allows for SUV all-season tires all year round, then the benefits of SUV all-season tires outweigh those of SUV all-weather tires, especially in the summer. This is because all-season tires do not have the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol implying that it can be used in severe winter conditions. This means that it does not need to have such aggressive tread design and allows for a tire that gives ultimate performance in the summer.
All-season SUV tires are made to be driven all year long if you live in a place with three seasons, because even though the name “all-season tires” suggest use during all seasons, this is not so. All-season tires are great in spring through fall – three seasons – whereas all-weather tires are made to handle wintry conditions. This is because all-weather tires are a hybrid of winter tires and all-season tires. If you live in an area with three seasons, the best choice would be SUV all-season tires like the Nokian zLine A/S SUV tires. They are made to support heavier SUV vehicles throughout the year with excellent handling and stability.
These tires will assure that you get the most use out of your SUV tires. They also allow for one set of tires throughout the year, which is a great financial advantage as SUV tires can be quite expensive.
SUV all-season tires like the Nokian zLIne A/S SUV take advantage of many new technologies like Aramid sidewalls. This sidewall compound is exceptionally durable and puncture-resistant, as it is made of extremely strong Aramid fibers. This is great when you want to drive your SUV in off-road situations or just on rocky roads. It also provides additional safety when you encounter debris on the freeway. They are made to allow for controlled driving comfort, excellent handling and stability with extra protection against hydroplaning. This is something that is important throughout the year, even in the summer when dry summer roads can become a risk for hydroplaning after a rain shower, a leading cause of accidents in the summer months.
