You may not have realized it, but there are different types of tires. Most vehicles are equipped with all-season tires, which are pretty good most of the year. Many people also make the switch to snow tires during the winter months. There are also summer tires available, too. We are going to talk about some of their benefits.
Like winter tires, summer tires are designed with a specific rubber compound that operates best at certain temperatures. In this case, hot weather. Summer tires are also geared more to superior performance, which is why most high-performance cars come with them.
Summer tires have a shallower tread depth, which helps give you superior grip and better handling on the road. If you drive a car like the Ford Mustang, you will get a better driving experience during the warmer months if you switch to summer tires.
There is one downside to summer tires—they do not last as long. With a set of all-season tires, you can typically get about 60,000 miles out of them. However, a set of summer tires might only last for 25,000 miles. If the best performance is a high priority for you, it could be worth it to make the switch.
