      But all that swelling helps you out, right ?
  • It is not easy to answer this question. A number of factors are decisive for the availability of optimal conditions. The main thing, of course, is the outside temperature. Usually, the optimal moment for installing summer tires is considered to be the moment when the outside temperature is on average 24 hours a day above 7 degrees Celsius (44.6 Fahrenheit). Sometimes this can happen in March and other times - only in April or even May (depending on where you live). In addition, before negotiating with the vulcanizer, the driver must check the long-term weather forecast. You need to be sure that the temperature will continue to rise and there will be no surprising return of winter. A compromise between the extreme weather conditions can be made only with all-season tires - this must be remembered! I would suggest reading this helpful article on that topic:
  • Summer tires start to lose grip below 55 degrees. OTOH, I've been going stir crazy here in OH, and actually took my somewhat worn Pilot Sport Cups out with temps in the teens. Dry grip was actually decent. There was still a thin layer of snow/ice on my motor trader driveway though, and had to go slow and work it a bit. You should be fine if there is no snow or ice, temps 50 and up, on summer tires , so long as you don't intend to set speed records..
