Are Winter Tires Okay in the Summer?

Everyone likes to do things the easy way. Removing old tires and mounting new ones add work to people's lives. Why bother with the process? Can't you drive on winter tires all year? The short answer is, "No!"

The design of winter tires works to enhance traction on the road. The improved traction seeks to address the presence of slippery ice and snow. Increased tread depth supports this performance. In summer weather, however, the tires prove problematic. After all, they were designed for 100-degree conditions.

The added tread depth is not only unnecessary during the summer, but it is also harmful. Winter tires suffer increased wear on hot streets. Excess wear can cause performance and safety issue. The increased tread depth further undermines performance. Poor performance puts safety at risk.
