Winter to summer tyre

Hi Guys,

With the weather getting warmer now just wondering how many of you are considering taking off your winter wheels and donning the summer set?!

I am on the edge and probably will do it next week during the school holidays.

Cheers
Pops

Garage List
It's been between 1c-2c here this week during the day. If I had winters I'd be leaving them on until the first week of March at a guess.

Hi Pops,

I've been thinking the same thing, as it felt like spring today in Bristol. I might hold a couple more weeks, just to make sure most of the nasty salt is washed away before I get the 19" 403 on.

Looking forward to that - hope the car will feel a bit more crisp over the winter tyres.

Snow has only just melted today.... up here. Still plenty of time for more cold weather. Even in the south.

Seeing as summer tyres don't work at their best below 7 degrees. I definitely wouldn't be thinking about changing to them yet.

I normally change them over when the clocks go forward, so they will be on until the end of march.

Mid March sounds like a good call. I'll be a good boy and hold on ...
