Pros and cons of summer tires in spring, summer, fall
It's fair to say that we understand the pitfalls of using summer tires in the winter. It's an unsafe choice that leaves too much to chance. But once the roads are clean, and the weather is warm, the rules for tires change and summer tires become your best option for safety and performance.
Summer tires are made of a softer rubber, with wide grips, meaning they're touching and gripping more of the road. This gives you more control in both wet and dry conditions meaning that you've got optimal braking and cornering capabilities. So you've got minimal worries when driving in wet conditions, or on windy roads.
While they do have some great pros during the summer weather, summer tires aren't all good. In the wrong situations, they can be downright bad news. Summer tires, due to the nature of warm weather, combined with a softer rubber, don't last as long as all-season tires. This means that while they do provide great safety and control, they do need to be replaced more often.
