Are Summer Tires Better Than All-Season Tires?

The Honda parts and service professional at Rancho Santa Margarita Honda want to make sure all drivers in our community know the difference between tire types for improved safety and performance. All-season tires are great for some times of the year, but not necessarily summer. Should you consider switching yours out for summer tires?

Summer tires are specifically designed to improve handling in the hotter months, reduce braking distance, and grip the road surfaces better. The summer tires don't have as many of the grooves in the treads as the all-season tires. This is for a reason: to make certain as much of the rubber meets the highway as possible for increased handling. Each of the summer tires has a unique tread pattern, so water is moved from the middle of the tires to the edge faster.

The team here at Rancho Santa Margarita Honda wants to let you know that we can inspect your vehicle today or install new summer tires on your car so you're as safe as possible this season.
