Are Summer Tires Better Than All-Season Tires?

Our crew here at Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield wanted to take a minute and inform you - now that the warmer weather is here - which tires are best for your vehicle. All-season tires may be fine most of the year, but this season is when you should have the summer tires on the car.

Summer tires are going to help make your drive safer this season by increasing handling, reduce braking distance, and allowing the tread of the tires to better grip the road surface. The summer tires have been manufactured with a unique tread pattern to not only grip the road surface better but to dispel water from the road fast. Rainwater is moved to the outer edges of the summer tires so you are less likely to hydroplane.

If you come visit us at our Volkswagen repair center, our crew will give all the tires on your vehicle a complete inspection and alert you to any issues present.
