Drivers increasingly choosing all-season tyres

Evidence from a number of sources agrees – UK drivers are increasingly choosing all-season tyres. Earlier this month, GfK data found that all-season tyre sales have shot up 19 per cent in terms of value and 13 per cent in terms of volume during 2019.

Rezulteo’s figures tell a similar story. From October to December 2019 the majority of Rezulteo users in the UK chose summer tyres (42,8 per cent), closely followed by all-season tyres (42,5 per cent). But this is far more than it has been in the past (see table below for further details).

WhatTyre.com data tells a similar story.

Here, the Michelin CrossClimate and CrossClimate+ featured in first and fourth place respectively on the list of top five most viewed tyres at WhatTyre between December 2019 to January 2020. Two more were summer tyres, but – interestingly enough – the fifth most view product during this period was actually a winter tyre – the Continental WinterContact TS860S.
