    Default Summer Tyres

    Hi, Do you guys change your tyres to winter ones at this time of year or do you stick to summer tyres/ all season ones? Was just thinking the other day if you were to buy winter tyres, and have summer ones it would cost you a fortune, what are your thoughts????

    depends really on your area is there lots of snow and ice if so then change
    i tend to try and use all weather but this year its been down to cost and have had summer on the front and rear are all season just down to buying the cheapest tyre at that time.

    Was was thinking about 4-seasons ones, because where I work is pretty high up and gets a bit of snow and reasonable frost. But currently running summers (NCT5 on the front, ER300 on the back).

    Was going to pick up a set of these:

    I make sure I have two new front tyres about the end of October, just as the roads become slippy with leaf mulch
    These last me to about February, when the snow ends and they are worn out

    Kinda depends on how many miles you're doing, doesn't it?

    4 months is about 15K miles on my front tyres, 5mm to 3mm of tread, which is about normal

    If I could afford to have a spare set of wheels with winter tyres, I would, without a doubt. Oh, and the space to store them...
