Should You Use Summer Tires or All-Season Tires?

With summer around the corner, our team at Honda of Abilene wants to help you choose the best tires for the season and your driving habits. When it comes to summer tires and all-season tires, both offer benefits, but summer tires give drivers precise handling on wet, dry, and hot roads.

Summer tires are optimized to give you excellent grip with a tread compound that is made with rubber, fillers, and sticky additives, and this mixture also keeps the tires stiff on extremely hot roads.

Summer tires are ideal for those who drive in urban areas that get lots of rain in the summer. This is because summer tires help to prevent hydroplaning at highway speeds better than all-season tires. All-season tires are typically more suitable in areas that get freezing rain or light snow in the spring and fall because they act as a hybrid between a winter and summer tire.
