Switching from summer tyres to winter tyres, might seem like a cumbersome task, but it is definitely something that shouldn’t be neglected. There are most likely laws regulating the use of winter tyres in your area if you have real winter conditions each year. The laws are really there to make sure that you are safe, as it is not safe to drive with summer tyres during winter conditions.
We have all seen videos on the news when there are lots of people crashing when the first snow comes. Some of the accidents may be due to the fact that drivers still have summer tyres on their car. Summer tyres do not have grip on snow or ice. For you to be able to drive legally and safely you need to change to proper high quality winter tyres.
