Why are all-season tires so versatile?

All-season tires offer great performance all year round in moderate climates.

All-season tire tests

At Continental, your safety is our top priority, and we take all possible aspects of safety and comfort into account when developing our tires. All Continental’s innovations have to pass an intense testing regimen before going into production. Our engineers travel all over the world, from Germany to Sweden to the US, to ensure that each Continental tire – whether winter tire, summer tire, all-season tire, or those used in sport and off-road activities – is tested by our experts in a wide range of weather conditions and on all types of surface.

In fact, each new tire has to complete hundreds of test kilometers on our main testing site, the Contidrom in Hannover Germany. Additionally, while we subject our tires to more testing than any other brand, it’s important to us that our tires also perform well in independent tests. And they do: tires from Continental are regularly rated top performers in impartial tests. We have been voted the best tire brand of the year several times by the German motorists’ association ADAC, as well as renowned magazines including AutoBild and AutoZeitung. These achievements make us proud because it means that motorists know they are in safe hands when they drive with Continental tires.

However, when it comes to testing and rating all-season tires, it's difficult to tick all the boxes. These unique tires need to combine features for literally all seasons to find a balance between winter and summer tire technology, as well as ensuring superb traction, handling, braking performance, comfort and mileage.

Fortunately, Continental’s range of all-season tires has garnered great reviews and ratings, with customers often recommending them to others. All of our all-season tires feature robust sidewalls, excellent tread, an adaptable rubber compound and overall high performance in all but extreme weather conditions.
