How do you even begin to choose between summer tires and all-season tires? A precursory glance at your local weather in Liberty Lake may help you decide. Here's why.

Summer Tires: For More Than Summer

Although aptly named, summer tires are also called performance tires. They consist of sticky additives for road grip in wet or dry weather, and they complement precision handling. Drawback: performance tires don't do well in snow, so they're best in climates where there's little to no icy precipitation.

All-Season Tires For Year-Round Performance

As their name suggests, all-season tires have deep grooves and symmetrical tread patterns that lend themselves to all-season use and tire rotation. Unlike summer tires, all-season tires don't get rigid during cold months, so they're performance isn't diminished when frigid weather rolls in.

All-season tires aren't engineered for use during unforgiving winters, but they're ideal for light snowfall. In short, go with summer tires all year if you live in a fair climate that gets little snowfall. Rock all-season tires for spring, summer and fall, but switch to winter tires come November for optimal cold weather performance.

As always, see for yourself with a test drive at George Gee Kia Liberty Lake today.
