When should you change to winter tyres?The advice for fitting and using winter tyres is that they perform best when the temperature is below 7C. This would normally correspond with around October/November in the UK so a suggested idea is to change to fit your winter tyres when the clocks change at the end of October.
So far this year the temperature during October has been much higher than average so I am currently still using the summer tyres on my VW Golf. Another reason for using the summer tyres for as long as possible is that they are on the original alloy wheels but the winter tyres are fitted to tatty steel wheels so the car looks much worse when using them!
