The latest All-Season tyre AW-6 boasts years of tyre knowledge to deliver a great all season tyre.
Designed with winter tyre type tread block sipes to allow cold season performance and summer tyre style shoulders to allow dry weather performance and cornering stability. The all Season AW-6 is the best of both worlds.
With a brand new compound and wider tread blocks than the previous All-Season tyre, the AW-6 has superior EU labelling and much better performance through those winter months.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

01.03.2020fromJoanne Very good tyres, replaced goodyear all season tyres and can confirm these generate a little bit more noise but feel like they have more grip in winter conditions, I would definatly reccomend these to anyone looking for a good cheap tyre.
12.06.2019fromChik maarof Saved our lives whilst driving through snowy country roads in Austria. Grip was very good.
29.04.2019fromByron These tyres performed really well. Good grip in all conditions and excellent in snow and ice. A bit noisy but no more than can be expected. Wear is really good and have taken them off now for summer but will be able to use again next winter.
