When Should You Switch from Winter Tires to Summer Tires?

Once the weather starts to warm up, Frederick drivers start thinking about their spring driving adventures. And to make sure your car is ready for those adventures, it’s important to switch out of your winter tires and into your summer tires. But when is the right time to make the switch?

While there’s no specific time when you need to have your tires changed from winter to summer, it’s a good idea to have it done when the temperature is above 45 degrees consistently, with no more temps below freezing at night. For those of us in Frederick, that probably means swapping out your tires in the next few weeks.

It’s important to get the timing right when you change from winter to summer tires. If you switch too soon, you might get stuck in snowy, cold conditions that your summer tires can’t handle, and end up with a slippery ride. If you wait too long, running in warmer weather could damage your snow tires.
