Typically, summer tires should be installed on your vehicle when temperatures are hovering at 7 degrees celsius. Because summer tires are made of a harder rubber than winter tires, they perform differently in different temperature conditions.
Many drivers may not know that summer tires need just as much tread depth attention as their winter tires do. In our climate we sometimes use our summer tires longer than our winter tires, so the wear and tear can take a toll on them.
It is also important to check the tire tread depth. Good tread depth is important in summer conditions. Gripping the road and eliminating the chances of hydroplaning in wet weather are the main reasons good tread depth is important.
Be sure to check your tires for cracks or bulges on the side walls. If anything looks abnormal, it is best to take your tires to a garage to have them repaired or replaced. You can also ask your Tire Changers technician about your tire’s condition.
If your tires do need replacing, there are many places throughout the city you can take them to to have them recycled.
