Are Summer Tires Better Than All-Season Ones?

As the warmer weather approaches, so too do the needs of your car tires. Summer tires provide better grip, improved cornering, increased handling, and faster braking. The reason the summer tires are preferred in warm weather compared to all-season tires is because the tire have a unique tread pattern to improve handling.

Fewer grooves in the summer tires mean that the tread has more contact with the road. The compounds used in the summer tires provide added flexibility that allows air to expand and increase overall traction. The unique design of the tread pattern in the summer tires will expel water faster and easier. This means as it is raining, the tire is pushing away maximum amounts of water to help the car to resist hydroplaning.
