Is it summer rim/tire time yet?

Post by twista on Fri Mar 08, 2013 6:46 pm

With the weather looking the way it does at the moment, I can't wait to put my summer rims/tires back on. But the weathernetwork sucks with predictions so what do you guys think? When is everyone planning to get rid of their winters?

the technical rule is that you should wait until it is consistently above 7C. that means looking at the long term forecast and seeing what temps are like. Summer tires (in general) are only better performing than winters/all seasons in temperatures above 7C, so you'd be risking anything else. I forgot where i read this before, but i wouldnt post it if it were credible. stuff about summer vs winter tire rubber compounds and effective working temps...


rule of thumb for me personally is to put them on easter weekend. 3 days off work, so put them on the saturday, and enjoy them sunday and monday Lol

the temp is supposed to dip back down next week, so i'd hold off a bit.

Couldn't wait anymore Smile pulled the trigger! Summers are back on.

Works out because I'm starting a new job in April and I won't have any time to get this done.
