Designed to perform in all conditions, so the weather never catches you by surprise.
The extra convenience and cost savings of a single set of tyres, all year round.
Compliant with winter tyre legislation in all relevant countries.
Freedom to drive in all conditions
The Multiseason is safe when you need it the most by combining an overall easy-going and forgiving character on the road with a readiness for sudden weather change.
Its development started with a base pattern proven strong in wet and snow conditions. Thanks to the right amount of grooves for efficient water evacuation and the use of Nano-ProTech© technology in the compound, the Multiseason provides good wet grip and excellent resistance to hydroplaning, which means that it is able to evacuate large amounts of water quickly so you don’t lose control of your car.
The Multiseason also brings you confidence when driving on snow, as demonstrated by the M+S and 3 Peak Snowflake marks. Thanks to the right pattern to provide solid traction, handling and braking when driving on frost and snow, the Multiseason makes sure that drivers are free to take the road under any conditions.
Being a strong performer in wet and winter conditions is however not a trade-off for enjoying the daily ride! The Multiseason is ideal for manoeuvering in cities and with its linear steering and excellent stability, you can confidently engage any corner, making the drive smooth and comfortable.
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.
The exact size of a tyre can be found on its sidewall.
The following chart shows you how to read a tyre size.

3. Construction type: "R"= radial (often seen), "D" or "-"= diagonal (rarely seen)
4. The required rim diameter (in inches) for this tyre
5. Load index
