Tires are a crucial component to any car and it is important to utilize the right type of tire for your vehicle and location. Since Steamboat Springs has a unique mix of cold, snowy winters and hot, rainy summers, drivers need to consider changing their tires for these differing seasons.
Summer Tires, also known as high-performance tires, are different from winter or all-season tires because they are softer and grip the road better, especially when it is hot. As a result, summer tires perform better when it comes to braking and accelerating - hence the "high-performance" title. These tires also out-perform all-season tires when it comes to driving in the rain because of their special tread pattern and gripping capabilities. And since summer tires grip the road better and move more easily, you will benefit from increased fuel efficiency and a more comfortable ride.
To summarize, the main benefits of summer tires are:
- Better Handling
- Better Traction
- A More Comfortable Ride
- Increased Fuel Efficiency
- Improved Braking & Acceleration
- Overall Improved Performance
But remember, when the temperatures drop and winter creeps back in, it's time to switch back over to the all-season tires. Making sure your car is primed and ready for every season will improve its drive quality and increase driving safety.
