How to Store Summer Tires


If you live in a climate that has harsh winters it is a good idea to replace your regular summer tires with tires designed to better handle snow and ice. Summer tires utilize a softer rubber designed to travel on hot roads. The tread on summer tires is also designed to channel water up and away from the car. The tread on summer tires, however, tends to wear out faster than the tread on winter or all purpose tires. A number of factors such as natural aging, oxidation, UV rays, and ozone damage can lead to tire degradation and deterioration. This makes it necessary to store tires properly to protect their quality and longevity.
