Understanding the Differences Between All-Weather and Summer Tires

Because of differences in rubber compound and the shape and depth of tread, all-weather and summer tires excel in different types of weather conditions. The stiffer rubber and shallower tread of summer tires leads to increased performance in warmer temperatures, and they can out-perform all-weather tires in wet conditions.

All-weather tires are generally found on passenger cars, SUVs, CUVs, and light trucks. Higher performance cars and luxury SUVs tend to have summer tires for increased performance during acceleration, braking, and cornering. They are great for those who enjoy driving and want to maximize their traction on the road. Because of their asymmetrical tread pattern, the tires cannot be rotated as freely.
