What sets summer tyres apart?

Summer tyres are very distinct from their winter and all-season counterparts. While winter tyres must be put into action once the temperature falls below 7 degrees Celsius, summer tyres are for all other instances. If you look at a set of winter and summer tyres, the following differences will become apparent.

  • Summer tyres are made of slightly harder rubber compound than winter tyres and even all-season ones. This heavier rubber aids in extra nimbleness and versatility on the roads. They also aid in better braking.
  • Even a cursory glance at these two types will show that the winter tyres have chunkier and more curved treads. On the other hand, summer tyres demonstrate comparatively orbital tread which helps them grip the road firmly; even on hot roads and at higher speeds.
  • Whenever the temperature rises above 7 degrees, summer tyres become more usable because winter tyres tend to heat up quickly, given their nature. Also, winter tyres, if used in summer conditions, will wear away a lot quicker than most counterparts.
  • Unlike winter ones, summer tyres do not have the hydrophilic rubber composition. Thus, they can accelerate faster on the hot, slush-free roads. Most performance tyres are summer tyres, therefore.
