If you've had winter tires on your vehicle, you may be wondering when it's time to switch them out to summer tires or all-season tires. Winter tires are great for cold temperatures and winter weather, but aren't ideal for the heat of the summer sun and the slick water from heavy rain. Many technicians recommend switching from winter tires to summer tires once the weather is consistently around 50-degrees Fahrenheit.

Why Should I Change My Tires?

Winter tires have thick tread, a more flexible rubber, and tend to be quite heavy. Summer tires are lighter with less tread and a harder rubber. This combination allows summer tires to stay intact on the hot and sometimes rainy roads. Summer tires will also help you earn better gas mileage, especially when you're travelling on your long road trips or summertime adventures.
