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.

We here at Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield want to make sure you understand as much as possible about your vehicle. Today we're going to discuss differentials.
