Should You Have Summer Tires or All-Weather Tires?

The answer to the question of whether you should have summer tires or all-weather tires really depends on the area where you reside. Summer tires are meant to be used in warm or wet conditions, while all-weather can handle a wider range of temperatures. However, the weather at some locations can be difficult to predict.

A summer tire is designed to offer better traction in wet conditions and has a shallow and asymmetrical tread and a material made with sticky additives. These all combine to enable the tire to adhere to the road surface better. Summer tires will become rigid and unyielding in cold temperatures, though, and thus offer minimal traction in the snow. All-weather tires can handle a wider range of temperatures and will last longer, because they have a deeper tread.
