Best time to change to summer tires


Summer Tyres

The best time to do the actual change to summer tyres if you currently have winter tyres on your vehicle is as soon as you know it will not return. This is often easier said than done and if you are wrong and change too early you will have problems if you need your car for your daily use. As once you have changed to summer tyres you shouldn’t be driving if the snow returns. You always need to have tyres that are approved for winter use plan to drive during when you have snow.

You will need to make sure that both the winter tyres that you currently have on are in good condition and have sufficient tread depth, but also the summer tyres that you will put on need to have sufficient tread depth to handle the wet conditions that can occur during the summer. In some areas you can also use all-weather tyres, where you don’t have to worry about changing tyres as you can use these tyres for the whole year. You do however need to rotate the tyres during the year to even out any differences in wear between the rear and the front tyres. If you have an electrical vehicle you will need to do the rotation even more frequently as the wear of these tyres will be higher. It is important that you check if the tyres are recommended for that use.
