Summer is here which means you may need to change your tires to something more seasonally appropriate. During the warmer weather, it is best to think about changing your tires to summer tires, otherwise known as performance tires. These tires are designed to provide dry and wet traction along with precise handling. They work best when the temperature is above 44 degrees Fahrenheit.
The reason why these tires are recommended over all-season tires is because they are optimized for excellent road grip no matter what the summer elements consist of. The components of the tires consistent of a mixture of rubber and fillers for better road grip when it is raining while still providing enough stiffness and retain their shape when the temperature is high. With the stiffer construction and less friction, these tires offer better fuel economy for vehicles.
