All-season tires are the standard all-around tire that probably came with your hybrid or electric car. They are generally a good choice, but they are not recommended for winter conditions. This is not a concern if you live in an area where you don’t experience winter weather. Having said this, there are some differences between hybrid or electric cars compared to traditional cars that need to be considered when buying tires. Electric and hybrid cars have battery packs that make them heavier than traditional cars that run on gasoline. This means that grip is even more important to allow proper braking.

All-season tires are good all-around tires that provide excellent grip on both wet and dry roads.
