All-Season Tires: Price Does Not Matter?

By  | 

There are tons of all-season tires out there to choose from with some being more pricey than the others. Most people generally do believe that the pricier all-season tires are better but according to AAA, that might not be the case at all.

A new study was done using the Ford F-150 and Toyota Camry, there was no evidence that the high priced tires performed better than the low-priced tires when it comes to stopping distance on wet roads, acceleration on wet roads and overall NVH characteristics.

However, they did point out that it was the worn tires that drivers should be worried about as the stopping distance, and acceleration result was a lot different than the ones they got with the new tires.

According to AAA, this difference can be seen when the tires was worn to a tread depth of 4/32″. They added that the recommended 2/32″ by the state law jeopardizes the safety of the driver.
