<a href=""><img src=""alt="Close up of tire for the 2022 Ram 1500 truck”/></a>Now that spring is upon us, you may be wondering if it’s time to switch out the tires. The answer will vary depending on what you are looking to achieve with your daily driving comfort level.

If you have a set of winter tires on your vehicle, then you certainly want to change them. Your best options are going to be a summer or all-season set.

Summer tires are designed from a sticky compound that produces a tread that is great to prevent hydroplaning. Also sometimes referred to as performance tires, this set is ideal for cornering at high speeds, fast acceleration, and responsive braking. Optimal weather for them is an average daily temperature of 6-degree Celsius or above. Vehicles that typically use them at sports cars and luxury models.

On the other hand, all-season tires are more commonly found on cars, light-duty pickups, and SUVs. They are good on wet surfaces and can handle fluctuating climates that stay above freezing. They also tend to have a long tread life - which is about 80,000 miles as opposed to the summer set’s 50,000 miles.

Want to get a summer or all-season set for your vehicle? Get in touch with our service department and ask about the Sailun brand.
