I have never heard about the difference between "All Season" and "All Weather". Tire Rack does not have a category All Weather. Is this a new thing?I have coworkers in the Netherlands and it's fairly common there but trending down. One huge difference is in Europe to be called "All Season" the tires must have three-peak mountain snowflake. In the USA these are typically referred to as "All Weather" tires
So a Goodyear tire like this would not be sold in Europe because it would be called a "summer" tire. And much better summer tires than this are probably available.
Also, Europe has very different requirements for performance in wet, noise, and rolling resistance. I actually hope the USA adopts the EU tire label system it's sooo much better than what we do here for EV owners.
