As the seasons change, you may need to think about changing your seasonal tyres. Whether you're switching to winter tyres or to summer tyres, it's important to think about how you store your off-season set.
It’s likely that you’ll have your tyres changed by a professional retailer and many retailers offer tyre hotels, but please check this with them first. If you do change your tyres yourself knowing how to store tyres after removing them from your vehicle is essential. In fact, it’s more important than most people realise.
If you don’t handle and store your tyres properly, their characteristics can change. This can shorten their life. They can even deteriorate so badly in storage that they need to be replaced. But if you handle and store them correctly, they will deliver years of service – and you’ll save money.
