Summer tires have a specialized rubber compound that remains flexible in higher temperatures allowing for better traction and handling on dry and wet roads.


SUMMER TIRES at Local Tire Guys

Summer tires are designed for better grip on dry or wet roads, enabling the driver to enjoy better handling and stopping power once they step on the brakes. In contrast, all-season tires are designed to perform during the warm or cold months.

Meanwhile, summer tires fare poorly in snow conditions. Thankfully, you can buy winter tires for that purpose.

Summer tires allow you to get the most out of your vehicle due to the rubber compound's superior road grip, acceleration, and ample support for short braking power. You can attribute this to the shallower and straighter grooves, coupled with a solid rib, resulting in continuous contact with the road.

The only weakness of street tires is the cold weather since they tend to get stiffer. As a result, you are prone to slipping or hydroplaning as the rubber loses contact with the road.

Elevate Your Driving Experience With Summer Tires

Better handling

Nothing compares to summer tires in dry conditions, whether you are cornering, braking, maneuvering, or performing quick accelerations. In contrast, all-season tires are not ideal for performance handling. So, sports cars and performance vehicles will benefit from specially designed street tires.

Higher heat tolerance

Summer tires are designed for temperatures of 44ºF and above. As a result, you won't have to worry about the tire pressure and the rubber expanding even when it is searing hot outside.

Rated for performance

If you like the drive fast, you will love summer tires due to their higher speed rating. You can step on the gas pedal and have peace of mind that the rubbers will handle the pressure buildup from high speeds.

Improved heat dissipation

Summer tires dissipate heat during hot days. Overheated tires will impact tire pressure and traction. Conventional tires are vulnerable to wear and tear due to high temperatures.
