A Quick Guide To Tire Types And Their Benefits

May 10, 2021

Choosing tires might just be harder than choosing the car you’ll buy. There are many different types of tires that offer various outcomes on the road, but which is right for your Hyundai? Let’s take a look at a few common tire types and why they might suit your vehicle well.

All-Season Tires

Most cars come off the lot with all-season tires, named for their ability to be used year-round. All-season tires are great for climates like San Antonio where the winters are mild. These tires will perform well come rain or shine, but they don’t necessarily master any particular season. All-season tires are great for the casual driver who doesn’t want to worry about their tires from season to season.

Performance All-Season Tires

Another great choice for San Antonio drivers is performance all-season tires. Performance all-season tires have more grip than regular all-season and will lend to a sportier performance on the road. These are a great choice if your Hyundai has an upgraded/larger wheel size than is standard for your vehicle.

Touring All-Season Tires

If you prioritize a quiet, comfortable ride, these are the tires for you. They’re good to go all year round and offer a smooth ride for your travels, which can come in handy if you’re a frequent road tripper. Touring all-season tires have a longer treadwear than other all-season tires to help you get more miles out of them.

Summer Tires

Though we don’t get harsh winters here, we do get hot summers. They’re designed to excel on hot, dry pavement to provide extra grip on the road. Summer tires are usually mounted on high-speed cars, but talk to your Red McCombs Superior Body Shop mechanic to see if summer tires might be a good choice for your Hyundai vehicle.
