Auto Talk: Summer, Winter, or All-Seasons?

how do I know when I need new tires? Falconer

What is the "right" tire for your auto? The answer depends on several factors:

  • The type of vehicle
  • Driving conditions
  • Handling preferences

All-season tires are aptly named: they work sufficiently well in all types of driving conditions. Because of their deeper tread depth, they ordinarily last longer than summer tires. You can get all-season tires for any type of car.

Summer tires are built for high performance driving. Falconer sports car owners who are seeking a grippy tire with enhanced handling characteristics often select summer tires.

While driving with winter tires in the summer isn't recommended, it is much worse to drive with summer tires in winters. If you are driving in ice, snow, or freezing temperatures, your tire choice is especially critical.

There are also sub-specialties of tires in each of the categories listed previously such as high performance, passenger, and off-road.

The type of tires you have on your auto influences your gas mileage, safety, and ease of driving. You can rely on the tire experts at I-86 Truck & Auto Repair help you choose wisely. We can answer the common tire questions:
