One of the most important factors to keep in mind before buying tyres for your vehicle is to understand whether you want Summer, Winter or All-season Tyres. The difference between them is given below.

Summer Tyres

Summer tyres are good for spring and hot season. These tyres have soft and shallower tread that provides grip on dry as well as the wet surface. They have fewer grooves for better traction and control on the road. These tyres have better braking capabilities and more hold on the road. These tyres are not meant for cold temperatures. If these tyres are used at freezing weather their rubber tends to harden and they lose their grip on the road.

Winter Tyres

Winter tyres are designed especially to deliver excellent performance during winter season and snowfall. They have softer and flexible tread rubber than summer tyres that remain soft in freezing weather and provide maximum grip on the snowy surface. These tyres have a deeper tread pattern and more grooves, so as to maintain traction on the snow. These tyres also have sipes, which are small rubber pockets that absorb water and release it from the back of the tyre while rotating.

All-Season Tyres

All season tyres are designed to work all year long. These tyres are generally fitted in brand new cars. They are quite popular as they provide a good ride in dry, wet as well as mildly cold conditions. Unlike summer and winter tyres, these tyres do not impose danger if used in alternate weather conditions. These tyres are less costly and provide good traction. Although one can use these tyres all year long they are not ideal for all situations. These tyres are best suited for moderate temperatures and can bear little heat as well as little cold but they should not be used during extreme dry, wet or cold conditions.
