All-Season or Summer: Best Tires for Hot Weather

All-season tires work year round, but they aren't ideal in all weather conditions. Do you know when to swap them out for summer tires and why?

Summer tires are a better choice when the weather's hot because their tread design includes sticky additives that helps the tires grip the road when it's hot, damp or wet. It also helps tires keep their shape, which means minimal rolling resistance on hot pavement. On the contrary, summer tires aren't safe in snow or ice because they don't have winter traction. All-season tires are a summer-winter hybrid that work moderately well in many weather conditions. However, while they have enough traction for light snow, all-season tires won't cut it in harsh winters.
