Are Summer Tires Better Than All-Season Tires in Warmer Weather?

October 24th, 2018 by

The crew at Byers Kia of Lewis Center wanted to keep you informed about the reasons to switch to summer tires as the warmer weather approaches. These tires are better at handling, braking, and cornering, compared to all-season tires.

The summer tires have fewer grooves in the tread, which not only provides more contact with the road, it also helps to improve handling.

The summer tires ride in the rain better than all-season tires. The reason being is the summer tires have a specific tread pattern that will help to move rainwater off the road faster to help avoid sliding or hydroplaning.

The compounds that comprise the summer tires are flexible, allowing more of the tire to come in contact with the heated roads to help to improve tire traction.
