Best Time To Change To Summer Tyres On Your SUV

NT - GlobalFor Nordic countries, this year was marked by a rapid change in temperature from a long winter to an almost immediate summer, completely skipping the spring season. This can create a challenge if you are one of those SUV drivers that want to make sure that you have the best tyres for the season and therefore you switch between SUV summer and winter tyres. This is of course to ensure that you have the best performance as well as to be capable to handle the challenges that the switching seasons bring. The challenge of the fast change between winter and summer is when to change the tyres. It is surely difficult to plan, when it looks like the winter will continue forever and then suddenly you have summer.

For the drivers, who tend to prefer a gradual change, which will allow a better planning of when to switch to ensure that you have the best performance for your tyres, as we know that SUV summer tyres are not good at all during winter conditions, the same way that the winter tyres are not good on dry or wet summer roads.

In addition to the weather conditions there might be legal restrictions, restricting the use of winter tyres after a certain date. That is one factor and the other one is the weather forecasts. If the snow and ice has already melted away and the temperatures have started to rise, there tends to be no reason to keep winter tyres on, unless it is forecasted to change back to winter weather.

Once you decide that you should change the tyres, you have the option to do it yourself or take your car to a service station for the change. The later option is of course the more convenient option as it is a bit harder to change tyres on a SUV, and it is also a safer option to have the change done by experts that are trained and have the expertise. They have the proper equipment to do the change. They will also make sure the tyres are rotated between the seasons to ensure that the wear is even.
