Why choose a 4-season tire?
It allows you to drive all year round, whatever the season, with the same eraser. An all-weather tire is:
- Practical no need to switch in summer/winter
- Economic no assembly/disassembly to be paid
- Securing for cold and snow-free regions, it will be possible to drive with it, instead of the summer tyres.

Which brand to choose?
There is no preferred brand. The choice would be more for Premium and Quality brands, which offer better quality rubber.
Knowing that the mixed tyres are not the best in either summer or winter, it is better to choose a top-of-the-range brand.
Michelin with its famous Crossclimate+ (summer tyre certified winter), Vredestein with the Quatrac 5 came 2nd in the 4-season tire test in 2016, Nexen well noted with the erasers N Blue 4Season that have a long life span, Continental with the AllSeasonContact that are good on snow and ice, Goodyear on its side proposes the Vector 4seasons Gen-2 which has good wet grip, Nokian has an eraser that clings well and lasts a long time with the Weatherproof.
Mixed tires, summer or winter?
If you live in an area where there is abundant snow, in the mountains or in the far reaches of the countryside, it is better to wear snow tyres, in mid-fall, which will be better than all-season tires.
If you live in a very hot region in summer, choose summer tires, starting in spring, which will not deteriorate as much as mixed tires.
For other regions, you can make your investment profitable with the purchase of 4-season tires, every month of the year. More information on the guide.
How to recognize a 4-season tire?
On the sidewall of the tire, you are an acronym M+S (Mud and Snow) which classifies it as a snow tire by manufacturers, but has not been tested under winter conditions, or marking 3PMSF (Three Peaks Mountain Snowflake) which indicates that the tyre has been tested and certified for winter, it is this marking that should be preferred.
