Since their launch by GoodYear in 1977, the market share of 4-season tyres has grown steadily. Over the years, technological advances have considerably enhanced the performance of this type of tyre. As well as being the first to design an all-season tyre, GoodYear was also the first to produce an all-season tyre with an A rating for rolling resistance and a B rating for wet grip.

4-season tyres are a very good choice if you live in a temperate climate, drive few kilometres or live in an urban area. However, if you live in a climate with extreme conditions or are looking to achieve high performance from your vehicle, it’s best to continue with your rotations.

More generally, the market share of 4-season tyres is increasing, but summer and winter tyres are not lagging behind.
