Spring and warmer weather are just around the corner, and your tires play a massive role in the driving experience. Those of us at Santa Maria Mazda want you to be informed on the differences between all-season and summer tires.

Summer tires are engineered to give your vehicle excellent traction on wet and dry surfaces. These tires are meant to be driven in warmer months or in a place that has warm weather throughout the calendar year. Summer tires are better than all-purpose tires in the rain. Summer tires have shallower grooves than all-purpose tires. Summer tires are also asymmetrical compared to the symmetrical tread pattern on all-purpose tires.

All-purpose tires are meant to last throughout the colder months and through the year. By doing this, they trade traction for longer wear. What you choose depends on the weather in your area. Stop by our showroom in Santa Maria, CA for service and more information on how your tires play a big role in your driving experience.
