When Should You Put On Summer Tires in New York?

March 25th, 2020 by

Your safety depends a whole lot on the condition of your tires. Your tires give you the ability to grip the road, make safe turns, and stop in a safe amount of time. Now that Spring is finally here, you may be asking yourself “when is the best time to make the switch from Winter Tires to Summer Tires?”

Winter Tires

Winter tires perform best in temperatures below 45 degrees in areas with cold, snowy and icy weather conditions. In order to maintain grip on slippery roads, winter tires are designed to stay soft in colder temperatures. Using Winter Tires in warm and dry weather conditions will wear the tread. It is important to change from winter tires to summer tires during the summer time to maintain the condition of your Winter Tires for future use.

Summer Tires/ All-Season Tires

With April just around the corner, we should expect temperatures to begin to rise here on Long Island. All-season and Summer Tires perform best when temperatures are above 45 degrees and should only be used in warm, dry and mildly wet weather conditions. These tires are designed to give drivers a more comfortable ride in the summer time.
