The biggest benefits of using summer tyres, are their higher performance characteristics.
It is highly likely that your car is already fitted with summer tyres as the majority of vehicle manufacturers fit this type of tyre as standard. However, if you have switched to winter tyres during the colder months of the year it is recommended that you switch back to summer tyres when the weather reaches average temperatures of +7°C as your winter tyres will no longer provide optimum grip on warm dry roads.
Don’t be fooled by the name; summer tyres are not just for driving on hot sunny days. While summer tyres provide exceptional performance in dry conditions, they also provide excellent grip on wet roads. So even when the unpredictable British summer brings cloud and rain, summer tyres will offer the best performance at this time of year.
