Summer Tires vs All season

Summer tires vs all season are the question most people ask themselves in the spring. This is a very good question, especially if you live in a place with warm winter and relatively cold summers. To find the right answer you must know some info like your car, personal preferences, driving conditions, your driving habits, etc. Also, you need to know what limitations and benefits have both these types of tires.

All season tires

All Season Tire

All-Season tires are somehow between the summer tires and the winter tires. They don’t perform as good as a proper summer tire in hot summers neither as good as a proper winter tire in deep snow or freezing conditions. Thus these tires offer the best performance in the spring and autumn, where the temperature is between 1 and 9 degrees Celsius.

All-season tires provide decent performance in dry, wet roads and light snow conditions. They are designed for day to day drivers who live in areas with warm winters and little snow.

These tires are designed to offer a good balance between traction, braking and tread wear. Thus, all-season tires will last longer than proper summer tires.

You can find all-season tires in lots of models, sizes, speed rating, and load capacity, from small compact cars to SUVs or light trucks. They provide handling, ride comfort and performance for day to day drive.
