Choosing Between Summer or All-Season Tires

Whether summer tires or all-season tires is better than the other is a common question with a slightly complicated answer. The differences between the two types get readily confused. Both tires have their advantages and disadvantages. We at BMW of Spokane want to help you decide which tire might be the right choice for you.

All-season tires work for all seasons, can be used when the weather is just shy above freezing, and have good traction when it's wet. You won't get good MPG in the summer or spring like summer tires, but they're designed for good traction pretty much all year long, at a cost to handling.

On the other hand, summer tires, also known as performance tires, can work through any season too, as long as the weather in your area has an average temperature above 44 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer tires are perfect for heavy rain, and get better MPG in hot weather.
