Shopping for summer tires? Summer tire reviews are a great place to start, but they won’t tell you the whole story. Today’s post shares AutoWeek’s top picks for 2021 to get you started, then explains how to fill in the blanks with honest, personalized tire talks at your local TIRECRAFT.
Summer Tire Reviews: AutoWeek’s Top-3 Picks For 2021
If you’re looking for maximum performance in warm weather, but you don’t know where to start, you’d do well to consult AutoWeek’s summer tire reviews.
The following tires were rated best-in-class based on rigorous road testing, conducted by AutoWeek car journalists “with engineering backgrounds and decades of track experience,” and they’re factory-fitted on some of the most respectable performance vehicles for sale in 2021:
- Michelin Pilot Sport 4S—Though pricey, this summer tire offers the best mix of street and track driving performance, plus great wet traction and comfort, according to AutoWeek.
- Bridgestone Potenza S007—Designed as the standard fitment for the Ferrari F12 and Aston Martin DB11, this tire handles and holds up extremely well, while providing decent comfort.
- Hankook Ventus S1 evo3—The Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 provides steady grip and responsive steering feel—no wonder Volkswagen specs these tires on the GLI. If you act fast, you can get a rebate of up to $100 as part of our Hankook summer tire rebate promotion.
These tires are sold in several different categories, from the casual “touring” grade to sticky specialty tires designed solely for the track, but you can find them all, along with personalized advice, at your local TIRECRAFT.
Take Your Research Beyond Summer Tire Reviews: Call TIRECRAFT
Summer tire reviews are a fantastic resource, but they’re never written with your specific tire needs in mind. Sure, AutoWeek’s car journalists might report a smooth ride or great grip in wet weather, but as they themselves will tell you, these reports are “based on subjective road-testing experience by our editors.”
