The Difference Between All-Season Tires and Summer Tires

Winter has come and gone, and so have icy road conditions. It is important not to delay changing your winter tires to summer tires—especially with the early spring we are experiencing this year. Leaving your snow tires on for too long could wear them down quickly, reducing their lifespan. Snow tires aren’t cheap, so to protect your investment, it is a good idea to remove them once the snow has cleared!

When you remove your winter tires, you will need to get either summer tires or all-season tires. Don’t know what the difference is? The tire experts at Tire Discounter Auto Centre, a top pick for auto service in St Catharines, can inform you on which tire suits your needs!

Summer Tires

Also known as high performance tires, summer tires are great for performance driving. One downside to summer tires, however, is that they tend to wear out faster than other kinds of tires. They are made using softer rubber than all-season tires, delivering more traction, which improves braking, handling and acceleration. The tread on summer tires is generally made up of large tread blocks with high lateral stiffness and wide grooves.

All-Season Tires

All-season tires, on the other hand, perform well when driving on wet or slippery surfaces. These tires drive well in all types of weather, but not as well as tires manufactured for specific weather conditions. All-season tires have medium-sized tread blocks with some lateral stiffness and can perform well in a wider range of temperatures. Typically, when you buy a new car, it will come with all-season tires.
