Tire Manufacturers Agree It is commonly agreed that a primary cause of early tire breakdown and poor tread life is under-inflation. Low tire pressure not only causes excessive heat build-up in the tire, creating dangerous driving conditions, but also shortens tire life. Unwanted heat will rapidly increase tread-wear and can even tear down retreads and destroy tire casings. As much as 90% of all tire breakdowns is the direct result of tire under-inflation
Most new cars that are sold today are equipped with All-Season tires. In fact All-Season tires are a more popular choice than winter tires and summer tires in aftermarket purchases as well. In large part this is a good solution for drivers because many parts of the country do not see harsh winter weather conditions and even those areas of the country that do experience significant snow and ice still have the majority of the year without those conditions. Winter tires are neither necessary nor appropriate in late spring, summer and early fall even in colder regions. The implication of an "All Season" tire is that it is designed for all seasons. This is probably true for most people who live in the lower half of the U.S. but it could be misleading for our friends in the north and mountainous regions that get significant snow and ice.
All-season tires are designed to function in varied but general weather conditions: dry roads and rain and in warmer temperatures. They are not engineered for specific weather conditions. If tires were vehicles, an all season would be a family sedan while a winter tire would be a Hummer. You can get through a blizzard with massive snow in a sedan possibly but it would be a lot safer to do it in a Hummer. It’s the same way with tires. You may make it through on all season tires but you will have much better results and you will be much safer with a good snow tire.
