According to the companies who make tires, the compounds used to make summer tires are better at gripping the road and stand up better to hot weather driving.  The tread design is different, it's intended to make your car or light truck handle better.  Winter tires have a tread pattern designed to give better traction in snowy conditions, and the compounds used to make the tire are better for cold weather driving.

From time to time Summer is extremely hot so that is why is so important to use the right type of tires. Summer tires are made from special material which last longer on high temperature. The material also help at the way the tires behave on the road. You have to make sure that the tires have the right treads. For more helpful information about summer tires make sure you visit:

A: Save wear and tear on your summer skins one time, and B: get the final use of the snows because they will be more than good enough to drive on in the summer, and C: one less PITA to pay the garage to put them on, (if you are the type who can’t change a tire, or two). Then you’d have a few months to save up for brand new snows before the first snow storm of the upcoming winter..
