What’s the Difference? All-Season, Summer & Performance Tires
All-season tires are expected to perform well for all types of road conditions. However, they do not provide as much grip as winter tires in cold and snowy conditions.
Some benefits of all-season or touring tires include:
Fact: North America is the only place that has an “all-season” tire designation. One of the most important things to remember about all-season tires, as the definition suggests, is that they present a compromise every season as they aren’t made to be used in any specific type of weather.
Summer tires, also known as 3-season or performance all-season tires, are different from 4-season or all-season tires. They are becoming increasingly popular in North America, but the downside is that they can be much less effective when the weather reaches a freezing point. Summer tires have the following features:
Still considered a summer tire, performance tires offer the highest level of grip in warmer temperatures. These tires excel in both wet and dry conditions. Performance tires are well-known for the following:
Please note that performance tires do not work well in cold weather as they are designed for higher temperatures. Performance tires may also wear out faster because they are intended to be stickier.
Accurate Tirecraft carries a selection of winter tires for Burlington vehicle owners. During the colder months, you should consider winter tires for your vehicle. Winter tires are made to improve traction, stopping, and handling when the temperature drops below 7°C/45°F. All-season tires can by good in many weather scenarios, but they often don’t provide the same grip and control that comes with winter tires. For a safer vehicle in cold and snowy weather, invest in winter tires.
Proper Tires Do Make a Difference in Safety
Tips for Winter Safety
With winter tires you’ll be able to maintain control and stability in your vehicle during icy conditions by adding four winter tires, but you don’t want to mix tires with different tread patterns, internal construction, or size. This can affect the stability of your vehicle. Replace winter tires routinely because your tires wear over time, reducing the traction of their tread. It’s important to replace your winter tires to ensure you always have enough traction for severe snowy conditions.
Be sure to check air pressure because proper air pressure can extend the tread life of your winter tires while improving safety and reducing fuel consumption. Tire pressure can decrease when the temperature drops so it’s important to check your winter tire pressure at least once a month during the winter.

SUV & CUV Tires
As vehicles have evolved over time, we’ve seen family station wagons and minivans give way to the newly emerging market of sport utility vehicles (SUV) and crossover utility vehicles (CUV). SUV tires are built to support the needs of the SUV and CUV driver in terms of handling and performance. They can be designed to ensure that your vehicle will be able to handle different terrains and loads, all while providing confident handling and a smooth ride.
When choosing SUV tires, you’ll need to consider several factors:
Pick Up & Light Truck Tires
With so many different kinds of trucks, and so many truck uses, there are of course many different types of tires. From heavy-duty pickup trucks to passenger trucks, you need to make sure the truck tires you select match the size and purpose of your truck. At Accurate Tirecraft we offer several different types of truck tires so you can be sure to get the perfect fit.
