While all-season tires can seem from their name to be a good compromise among the many tire types, summer tires have a few surprising advantages that give them a slight edge over their all-season counterpart.

If you live in a climate prone to plenty of rainfall, summer tires will actually offer a better advantage on wet pavement, due to both their composition and their tread. The blend of rubber used in summer tires makes them adhere to the road better, being more malleable than the stiffer blend found on all-season tires. The grooves and tread pattern of summer tires are less pronounced, giving them more surface area for a sturdier grip on the road.
