    Usually m+s (mud and snow) ang rating ng tires, well all terrain AT tires for the matter. Baka nag skid ka, then you step on the brakes, kahit light lang, which you managed to lock therefore losing all your traction. Kasi naman ilan beses ng sinabi, "do not step on the brake when in a skid, just steer to the direction of the skid". But as we all know this is not and easy thing to do as this does not happen everyday. I better tip I thing is to, "avoid getting into a skid by slowing down when it starts to pour". Ingats mga peeps.

    parang ang intindi ko sa snow tires is:

    soft compound.

    sabi nila, ang snow daw kasi parang buhangin lalo pag makapal na. basa lang kapag natutunaw.

    Correct me if i'm wrong but I don't think snow tires were designed to run at 80kph, especially on a wet highway.

    yup. yun goodyear aquatread ko sa gen1 has an m+s rating. soft compound and ang bilis maupod when use sa phil roads. kung snow rating lang mas soft compound yan siguro. i use mud tires on my rig, madulas siya wet roads because of the limited contact area of the rubber, kaya when it rains, I crawl. :D

    As far as I know the tread of the tires would be different, might not be so good in wet conditions.

    di magkaiba ang "all-weather" sa "all-terrain"? sa purpose are they the same?

    Your theory is already a fact, actually. It's not the drivers that have a hard time. The dirt, grime, oil and other particulates get dissolved or form a thin layer on the road when it rains. With the added oil from vehicles, it almost always makes it more slippery right after a downpour than hours after the downpour.

    Kung studded tires yan na pang snow, talagang hindi masyado kakapit sa asphalt yun.

    Can I answer that?

    Yes, all-weather tires are different from all-terrain tires. All-terrain tires can also be used off road, while most all-weather tires are mostly used on road. M+S yung rating ng all weather, also known as all season tires, while the all-terrain tires are rated differently.
