With seasonal changes throughout the year, there's also a case for changing the tyres on the wheels of your car. In this section, we will discuss how and when a driver should switch to summer tyres, winter tyres, or all-season tyres. There are fundamental differences between the three, and it's helpful to know what they are.
When, for example, is the best time of year for summer tyres? Ha, yes, that sounds like a ridiculous question. The name of the tyres is self-explanatory, isn’t it? But in reality, summer tyres are recommended for use from Easter to October, which spans seasonal conditions of spring, summer, and autumn as well.
Summer tyres provide superb grip and handling when driving on wet and dry roads. But when the temperature falls below 7 °C it's time to change over to winter tyres for better grip and traction on snowy, icy roads.
