Is Choosing Summer Tires a Better Option Than All-Season Tires?

May 18th, 2018 by

The tire technicians working here at Germain Honda of Dublin wanted to pass along some information about the benefits of switching to summer tires as the weather warms. Summer tires are better than all-season tires at improving handling, braking, and cornering, to name a few.

The unique tread design of the summer tires serves a number of purposes, all designed to make driving safer. The grooves actually increase the car’s ability to handle the road, and at the same time push water out of the way so more of the tread is in contact with the road. This will greatly reduce the chances of your vehicle being able to hydroplane.

Grooves are a good thing in all-season tires, but less is better with summer tires because more tread equals more ability to brake faster.

Now is the perfect time to come visit us at Germain Honda of Dublin so we can upgrade your vehicle with a new set of summer tires.
