tiresAfter spending the morning researching tires on behalf of your Canada Buick Cars Service Center in Thunder Bay, we decided to look closer at some of the options from a tire manufacturer’s perspective.  Afterall, they sell all versions of tires and so, therefore, may be one of the least biased of all.  “When debating between all season tires vs summer tires, the differences between the two types can be easily misunderstood. Depending on your vehicle, driving conditions, and personal preferences, one may be a better option than the other. When choosing between summer and all season tires, it helps to understand the benefits and limitations of each.”

We had researched and found, previously, on behalf of your Buick Car Dealer in Thunder Bay, that all season tires have a tendency to be sub-par for certain conditions.  This only makes sense given that they are trying to exist as being the best of both worlds and you can’t be everything to everyone all at once.  However, further and more detailed research found on Bridgestone’s website, cleared things up a bit and helped us to provide more details in our research.

Regarding all season tires, they may not always be the worst thing.  “An all-season tire offers a balance of capabilities, providing acceptable performance in wet and dry conditions, as well as traction in snow.”  Since they are built for the average driver, (albeit, not a race car driver in the mountains of Colorado on a snowy day), they can easily be the most convenient and affordable choice on a variety of new and used Buick Cars in Thunder Bay, for example.  Yes, they may not be the most accurate responsively in the snow and ice, but they get the job done and they prevent you from having to purchase two sets of tires for your new Buick Cars.  We can certainly see both sides of things, though, as tires designed specifically for the season can be more effective in those certain conditions and by splitting the work over the year, your tires will actually last longer, as they should since you are talking about owning 8, not 4.  They will also cost double to replace when the time comes, so that all comes out in the wash.
