Are Summer Tires Right for You?

Do you live in an area that is hot most of the year? Summer tires, or performance tires, have been specifically designed for hot weather driving. Effective in either dry, or wet conditions, they provide traction, and allow for better precision driving. So, if you live somewhere where there isn't a winter, or if you want to experience better performance while taking corners and accelerating, summer tires may be just what you are looking for.

What makes summer tires grip hot, damp, or wet surfaces better is a composition of tread that uses special, sticky substances together with the usual fillers and rubber found in all-weather tires. It's this sticky compound that helps drivers avoid hydroplaning, and provides more economic fuel consumption in hot weather driving. Summer tires will also add a bit of a thrill factor when you're driving on dry roads.
