When to Change Winter Tires to Summer

When to Change Winter Tires to Summer

With winter now behind us and spring in the air, you may be wondering when you should get a winter tire change. It's a good idea to put your winter tires away for the warmer weather so that you can make them last longer. If you change to your summer tires, you will get a lot more wear out of your winter ones. Winter tires and summer tires both serve a purpose and changing them at the appropriate time will ensure you have a smooth ride all year round.

 

What are Winter Tires?

 

 

Winter tires are designed differently from summer tires. They have a unique tread pattern on them, and they also have deeper treads. The reason for this is because in the winter months, you will experience more snow, ice, and challenging road conditions. Snow can pack down into your tires, so the tread pattern and depth helps repel this, making you safer. Also, it provides added protection from icy roads, too. It's critical to use winter tires if you live in a cold, snowy area.

 

What are Summer Tires

 

 

Summer tires are constructed differently from a winter tire. They are made from a soft rubber material and they have excellent performance ability in warm temperatures. They also do well in rainy seasons too, which means you can count on plenty of grip and traction when you need it. People who use summer tires must be careful, however, to change back to winter tires when the weather begins to get colder so that they don't ruin their tires. Summer tires don't hold up well in certain temperatures, which brings us to the next point.

 

When Should I Change From Winter Tires to Summer Tires?

You can use your winter tires as soon as the temperature drops to anywhere below 7 degrees Celsius. However, when the weather warms up and begins to climb about 7 degrees Celsius, then it's time to switch over to the summer tires. It's as simple as that. If your temperature is in this range, then you can take steps to make the change.
