The Tread Of Winter Tires Will Wear Faster

Winter tires are noticeably much more flexible than firmer summer tires. This is because they need to be able to adapt more to changing road conditions in the winter. Unfortunately, this means that they wear down much quicker when they are warm and are driving on a drier surface in the summer. If your tires wear out sooner, you won't get to drive on them as long which will require more trips to a service center. Making the switch at the proper time ensures you will maximize their lifespan.

The Car Won't Handle As Well

Winter tires are called such because they are designed to handle best in only the winter. Summer tires are firmer and handle much better in the warmer months. This means that if you were to drive on winter tires in the summer, your vehicle will not handle as well. This means taking turns will not feel as smooth and your car won't run as efficiently as it could.

It'll Cost You More Money

As we've already figured out, winter tires will wear out far quicker if you are using them in the summer months. As these tires wear down, you will have to replace them more frequently. This means more of your disposable income going to tire replacements as opposed to other things that are more fun for you and your family. By making the change over to the proper tires, you can keep more of your hard-earned dollars in your pocket.
