Visit Humberview Chevrolet Buick GMC’s Certified Service Centre to maintain and extend the life of your vehicle this season. With warm weather driving approaching, it’s that time of the year to switch to all-season tires and store your winter tires.
Once the temperature is above seven degrees, the rubber compound and tread of all season and summer tires are more effective on the roads. All Season and summer tires are more suited to the dry and slippery conditions in spring and summer: they use less fuel and do not require the same kind of traction as winter tires.
What’s the difference between Summer and All-Season tires?
All-Season tires are about balance: the goal is to provide traction during three seasons where there are wet and dry conditions. All-Season tires do better than Summer tires when it’s still a little cold, but are not equipped with the proper tread or rubber compound for winter driving. This tire offers a longer tread life than its summer sibling, but a little less grip than Summer tires for steering and braking in the warmer months.
Summer tires are suited for speed and grip on dry and wet roads in warm conditions. Performance-driven Summer tires are especially good with rainy weather, with better tread to stop your vehicle from hydroplaning and better braking ability.
