The next time your vehicle needs a new set of tires, you will likely be met with more options than you can count. Yet, the rivalry between summer tires and all-season tires is one of the most common that you will likely encounter. Heat management, handling abilities, and temperature range preferences differ between these two types of tires.

Also referred to as "performance tires," summer tires work well in regions that do not experience intense winter elements. They perform well in geographical areas with periods of dry and wet seasons, both of which summer tires excel in. As a result, summer tires perform better than all-season tires in areas with intense heat and rain. They feature a tread pattern with straightened grooves, which improves stability in cornering and braking.

Summer tires also boast an asymmetrical tread pattern that differs from the symmetrical tread of all-season tires. While this assists with traction and road contact, it may also limit the options available for tire rotation. However, it does minimize a driver's risk of hydroplaning. Overall, most buyers in moderate climates prefer the advantages of summer tires over all-season tires.
