The spring is here and it's the right time to think about new summer tires for your Acura ILX. Designed using high-performance vehicles in mind, summer tires provide enhanced braking, precise handling, and the best control of your vehicle in warm conditions.

They feature specialized tread patterns that are designed to improve traction and handling on the road, shallower tread depths, a high grip level, and fewer grooves. This makes them perfect to use during warm months with minimal rain. Choosing the right summer tire isn't a simple task, but we are here to help you out.
