Similarly one may ask, what does touring all season tires mean?
Scott Slemmons, senior sales representative, Maxxis: A touring tire is a premium tire designed to provide longer tread life, combined with a smooth quiet ride. Most touring tires are all-season rated, which provides improved wet and dry road traction.
Also Know, what is the difference between summer and all season tires? The primary difference between summer and all-season tires are their tread depths. While designed to provide a decent amount of traction during winter, all-season tires will not provide the same level of control as dedicated winter tires. Summer tires, on the other hand, are designed for high performance.
In this way, what is the difference between touring all season and high performance all season tires?
These tires are designed to offer a smooth, cushiony, comfortable, and quiet ride. The downside of touring tires is that they don't offer the same handling and responsiveness (like quick cornering and braking) as high performance tires do – though they are still totally safe in terms of traction.
Are all weather tires the same as all season tires?
All-weather tires are not the same as all-season tires. This logo indicates these tires pass the test as a “snow/winter” tire. The important difference is they can be left on the car all year round. All-season tires do not carry this logo because they have not passed the winter test.
