Types of Tires - Elizabethtown, KY

Many people don’t realize that there are a variety of tires out there to choose from. The kind of tire you need on your vehicle can change depending on a variety of factors, such as the size of your vehicle, how it is used, and the road conditions you will be driving in. To decide which type of tires are right for you, it’s important to understand the differences between them. Here is an overview of some of the more popular tire types you can put on your vehicle.
​ 
Summer Tires
​ 
As you might expect from this tire type’s name, these tires are made for dry, slightly wet conditions that you would typically see during the summer season. They are not meant to be driven in cold weather or on snowy and icy roads. When choosing these tires, remember to buy tires that are the same size as your originals. This will decrease the risk of hydroplaning when your summer tires are in use.
​ 
Winter Tires
​ 
If you live in a region that gets significant amounts of snow and ice, then winter tires are for you. These tires incorporate a variety of rubber and treads to maximize traction on snow, sleet, ice, and cold winter conditions. To cut through snow better, choose a narrow winter tire. By doing so, you will drive better in snowy weather.
​ 
All-Season Tires
​ 
For consumers that want to use their tires year round, all-season tires are the way to go. These tires work well in any weather, regardless of the temperature or road condition. While they’re not as effective in cold weather as winter tires, they are still a great option if you don’t want to change your tires every season.
