1. Safety: Summer tires provide excellent control when braking on hot roads and wet surfaces. Summer tires are specially designed with a tread rubber that has less grooving, allowing more rubber to be in contact with the road. This ensures that during summer, the tires stick to the hot pavement and/or wet conditions for better traction.
2. Handling: With more rubber contact on the road, summer tires ensure you have better handling as well as a smoother and quieter drive.
3. Savings: By using the appropriate tires for the season, you get the maximum benefit of the tire. Using winter tires in summer excessively reduces the life of the tires. This not only compromises safety, but costs more. Summer tires are less frictional than winter tires, which improves fuel consumption.
Be safe AND save money!
