Noticed something wrong with your tires? Perhaps they just don’t seem to offer as much traction anymore when you brake? Maybe the treads aren’t as deep or there are even some bald spots? If any of this sounds familiar, it’s probably time for some new tires. But, before you start looking for a tire store near me, you need to know what kind of tires to get. Besides properly fitting your wheelbase, there are several different types of tire to think about, including:

This leads us to the last kind of tire to consider. Summer tires are built to provide great traction in either wet or dry conditions during warm weather and they do this with unique tread alignments. It should be noted, however, that once temperatures drop below 40 degrees, they won’t offer the same levels of traction.
