Product description & features
The Nankang All Season Van AW-8 is a solid commercial tyre, delivering a safe and comfortable ride in all weather conditions.
The All Season AW-8’s tread pattern combines a summer shoulder design for stability and robustness on a range of road surfaces, with a winter central segment of wave-shaped blocks for improved traction and braking on mud, snow and ice. Three irregular longitudinal grooves efficiently expel water and snow and protect against aquaplaning.
The All Season AW-8 is Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake certified - guaranteeing the tyre will perform exceptionally in difficult winter weathers.
What is an all season tyre
Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions – with a good performance delivered throughout the year. A moderate natural rubber content is used to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 7 degrees.
How can I tell an all season tyre performs in winter weather?
This tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snowflake:
This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed standardised, controlled, and, rigorous tests. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.
Are all season tyres suitable for the UK?
Given that the UK suffers from milder and interchangeable winter conditions - with severe ice and snow becoming uncommon for much of the country - this makes all season tyres a very good choice for our roads. As they can cope with these conditions very well.
Do I need to swap my tyres throughout the year?
Given the nature of all season tyres, which can perform equally well in the summer and winter months, the need to replace tyres based on the season is not required.
We recommend that all season tyres should be fitted as a full set of 4.
