Our crew here at Crippen Volvo Cars wanted to make sure drivers knew the benefits of summer tires as the weather outside gets warmer.

One advantage to summer tires as the weather begins to heat up is that they were designed to easily deal with the excessive heat on the roads. When the temperatures rise, the summer tire tread construction allows for the driver to better handle their vehicle. With better grip, it is easier to drive at higher speeds too.

When those summer rains fall, you will be glad that your vehicle is equipped with the summer tires and not all-season tires. The tread patterns in the summer tires work to move water from the middle of the tire to the sides quickly. Pushing the water away from the tires makes navigating wet roads easier.

Be sure to stop by our service center here at Crippen Volvo Cars so we can rotate those tires and help extend their life.
