Alas, the summer breeze has entered, and there's a ton of lists to prepare for the new season. HVAC maintenance, lawn maintenance, changing winter clothes to summer outfits, and many more, and for sure, your car tires are a must on your list.
You probably have plans ready for summer and make the most of it. So to get prepared, you might want to start by changing your winter tires into summer tires. It is critical to know when to convert tires and how vital they are to your safety.
What type of tires?
Performance tires, another term for summer tires, are becoming more and more popular. Their intended usage is throughout the summer or all year round in places with no winter. A set of high-performance tires is intended to give outstanding grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as precise control.
The grooves of all-season tires tend to be deeper and more curved, while tread patterns tend to be shallower and straighter. For wet circumstances, they're constructed of a tread compound (the combination of rubber and fillers that make up the tread) with sticky additives. However, the rigidity provided by this tread mix helps tires maintain their form even when they are hot.
When it comes to wet and dry grip, summer tires surpass all-season tires in every way. There is no winter traction provided by performance tires, and they are not a safe option in any snow or ice situations. Tire rotation choices may be restricted since performance tires frequently feature asymmetrical or unidirectional tread patterns.
Why choose summer tires?
High-performance cars benefit greatly from summer tires designed for speed and agility. They're more agile, responsive, and have better cornering and braking performance. Particular tread patterns and compounds are often cited as the reason for this increased accuracy on the road.
How to change your tires?
We recommend using a different pair of rims for your summer tires. Having said that, they need to be the same size and bolt pattern as the ones you currently have. They do not have to be brand new. When you have a second set of wheels for the summer, you'll be able to keep your clean, new wheels safe from the elements. Put them on before the summer weather arrives so that you and your passengers can have a more enjoyable and less stressful driving season.
