Summer Tires, Performance Tires, All Season Tires ... What's the Difference?
What Is A Summer Tire?
Summer Tires are also commonly referrred to as "Performance Tires". These tires are designed to provide uncompromising handling and excellent traction regardless of whether the terrain is wet or dry. Ideally, Summer Tires or Performance Tires should be used during either the warmer months, or all year if you reside in an area that doesn't have to worry about a harsh winter and freezing temperatures.
Summer Tires or All Season Tires?
Typically, if you reside in an area where it doesn't snow and the temperature is normally around 45°F or warmer during the times you're going to be driving your car, Summer Tires are most likely going to be a good choice for you. Summer Tires are made to handle urban areas with warm temperatures that see occasional rain, this is due to the fact that they are better at preventing hydroplaning when you're driving at high speeds. If you reside in an area where the weather is unreliable or erratic, or say for example if you might experience freezing rain or light snow conditions during the spring or fall months, you're going to want to go with All Season Tires. If you're in an area where you experience harsh winters or where the temperature normally drops below freezing, or if you find yourself frequently driving to areas of high elevation, we highly suggest that you get a set of winter tires and then make sure to change them out around November and then again in March.
Do Summer Tires Perform Better?
Summer tires are made so that they have a really amazing grip on the road. It doesn't matter if it's blistering hot, raining cats and dogs, or just slightly moist on the road. Did you know that these tires are actually made from a tread compound that contains sticky additives? It's so that they're able to grip the road in wet conditions. That's not all, this tread compound blend also provides sufficient rigidness so that the tires will last longer and keep their shape even when it's hot.
