Summer Tires and Rims: Best Performing Tires for Warmer Weather
Canada's climate really gives you no other option than to use two different sets of tires annually if you want to be safe when out driving. Lower temperatures in winter mean winter tires are an absolute must, but they can't be used once the sun comes out and the temperature starts to rise. You are probably wondering, why? Well firstly, their performance in warmer conditions is inferior to that of summer or all season tires (and it doesn't matter whether it's wet or dry). Secondly, when they are used in these conditions, they wear out far quicker as the compound simply isn't meant to be used in warmer temperatures, which ends up costing you more in the long run. So essentially, for the other three seasons you need to choose between summer tires and rims, and all seasons tires. We have compared both options for you below, to give you more of an idea of which might be the better option.

Summer Tires Vs All Season Tires

Responsiveness - Summer tires are often referred to as "high performance" tires and are more responsive than all season tires. Your vehicle will react quicker to steering, which is one of the main reasons this type of tire is favoured for anything that could be considered performance driving. This is largely due to a shorter, stiffer sidewall, which is the area of the tire between the tread and the bead. Summer tires and rims are also known to improve braking performance.

Traction - During the warmer months of the year, a set of all season tires will get the job done, but they don't have the "wow" factor. A set of summer tires and rims on the other hand will provide much better traction and will stick to the road thanks to a shallower, specially designed tread and a compound that can cope exceptionally well with high temperatures.

Performance in Wet Conditions - When choosing a new set of tires your local climate will factor heavily into the decision making process. Some of the questions you should consider include: How hot does it get on average? Is the area prone to unexpected drops in temperature? In addition to the temperature you should also consider rainfall, as wet conditions can heavily influence the handling and responsiveness of a cars steering system. Although you associate summer with sunshine and clear blue skies, summer tires and rims are actually better at coping with wet conditions than all season tires. The inner area of the tread is specially designed to channel surface water away from the tire, creating more traction and lowering the risk of aquaplaning.

Life Expectancy - As you are probably well aware, budgets in many households across Canada are stretched, and the life expectancy of a new set of tires is typically an important factor when coming to a decision. All season tires win hands down on this count, with the characteristics that allow summer tires and rims to offer higher levels of performance (the shallower tread and compound used), leading to more wear and tear, and a shorter lifespan.

Noise Produced - Maybe not as important as the amount of traction a tire produces or how long it lasts, but the amount of noise created is still a factor that should be considered. After all, you don't want to have to put music on in your car every time you drive, just to block out the constant noise generated by your tires. In this respect, summer tires and rims are the better option, enjoying a smoother contact with the road that is as close to "silent" as you are going to get from a tire.

Price - When money is tight, the type of tire that is ultimately chosen often comes down to the price of available options. All season tires are manufactured in much larger quantities, having become the "standard" type of tire used in recent years, and sacrifice performance to offer more of an all round solution. They typically cost less upfront, and because their life expectancy is usually significantly longer than that of summer tires and rims, it is the more cost effective option.

When to Fit Summer Tires and Rims
Many of our clients often ask us this question, and it's a question that doesn't have a straightforward answer, owing to the unpredictable nature of the weather in Canada. The temperature can often fluctuate before it becomes warmer, making it hard to decide exactly when the best time to replace your winter tires with summer tires and rims is. As summer tires have virtually zero grip in freezing conditions, it's vital this change isn't made too early, leaving you at risk if the temperature does suddenly plummet. We typically advise our customers to wait for at least 10 consecutive days where the temperature is above 7 degrees before taking action.

Come to the GTA's Leading Tire Specialists
Each component of a vehicle fulfils its own specific role, and in terms of tires and wheels, their purpose is key not only the performance of your vehicle, but also to your safety. As a result, when buying new tires, wheels or both, all the various options should be carefully considered before making a decision. Before you can start looking at specific tire models, you should consider the following:

What type of vehicle do you drive?

What type of driving do you do?

How many miles do you drive each year approximately?

What type of performance would you like from your new tires?

How much are you willing to spend?

These questions are basic, but can narrow down your search quickly and ensure you don't waste time looking at tires that are not suitable for your requirements. If your knowledge of tires is limited then we would advise you to speak to a professional, and as the area's leading tire and wheel vendor, we would be happy to offer our assistance.
