Tracy’s Automotive can help you decide when it’s best to change from winter to summer tires.
For the most part, the daytime temperatures in Wichita have been warming up, promising an end to a cold, harsh winter. But, just this week, winter weather returned for one last – we hope – blast before leaving until late this year. For now, warm days and cold nights are the norm.
That variation between warm days and cold nights leaves many drivers wondering whether they should keep their winter tires on their cars or if it’s time to change to all-season or summer tires.
BF Goodrich spokesman Andrew Comrie-Picard.is quoted in one article as advising that “you take the winters off when ambient temperatures that you drive in (remember it’s colder at night) are consistently above about 7 degrees centigrade [44.6 degree Fahrenheit] and there is little or no chance of a freak storm.”
Comrie-Picard adds, “The main downside to leaving the winters on too long is that they will wear somewhat faster when the roads are warm AND dry.”
He advises drivers not to rush the change, saying, “I don’t want to be without winters when I most need them, so I tend to leave them on until there’s virtually no chance of a spring squall.”
