Summer or All Season Tires?

Which would be better Summer, or All Season?

A breif synopsis of our climate the Coldest Month is January with an Average high around 51 degrees, and an average low of 33. We do spend what seems like a couple days of the year below freezing. With very little, or no snow.

Summer tires are better for performance driving, but they’re going to wear out faster than all-season tires. Summer tires are made from a softer rubber that does a better job of gripping the road, which improves handling, braking and acceleration. These “sticky” tires can improve the performance of any car, but we’ve seen summer tires wear out as early as 9,000 miles when driven hard. Because of their tread pattern, they also handle wet roads quite well.
All-season tires are designed to handle any type of weather; unlike summer tires, they won’t leave you spinning in the snow. Even if you don’t have to deal with snow, all-season tires will last longer and give you the security of knowing you can handle the worst weather during road trips. They also regain traction better than summer tires on slick roads or over dirt or sand-covered patches. All-season tires that can last more than 50,000 miles with proper care.

I got this offline. My stang came with all season when i bought it and ive bought about 16k on them and they still have good traction. I personally think all season ones arent that great in the snow anyways granted we have rear wheel drive but i couldnt get traction one we got an inch of snow up here in chicago. But once i get my new rims ill be getting summer tires.

After debating about it I'm going with summer tires, I rarely see snow, once or twice every 15 years it seems like. Everything gets canceled when snow hits. Lol. You haven't seen hysteria until it snows here.

Haha i know exactly what you mean my friend goes to SIU Edwardsville and he tells me how much people freak out when it snows. Same thing in Tennessee they barely get a inch and the cancel school for two days. The only way we get school canceled up here is when we get a foot or more a night like when he got 24inches back in february last year

Yup same here. A dusting is enough to dealy it.

I did order a set of HTR Z III's I'm excited to see how the car re-acts to new tires.
