The kind of passenger tyre required depends on the climate that the vehicle operates in. For warmer and more temperate regions like Dubai, an all season tyre is suitable all year round. All season tyres are actually best suited for use under summer conditions and for mild winters in areas that do not experience snow. They can also be used for small stretches of lighter mud.
For countries that have snow in winter, special winter tyres are available, some of which are studded. Tyre chains are also fitted in some areas.
