As the summer is almost here it is time to change your tyres from winter tyres to summer tyres. Depending on country you live in, there may be some restrictions for when you have to change the tyres at the latest. If you will change the tyres yourself, then you don’t have to book a time. If you want to get a tyre service center to do it, then you should book a time for it, so that you are sure you can get it done.
Doing a tyre change is not so difficult, but most people don’t have the correct equipment. The tools that come with the spare tyre are not the best tools for tyre change. If you do not have the proper equipment, it is better to let experts to do the change for you.
When tyre experts do the change for you, you know that experts have changed with proper tools. They will also check the condition of your tyres and mark them so that they can be properly rotated upon the next change. They will wash them to get the salt and dirt away from the tyres. In some locations they can also store the tyres for you, so that you don’t have to carry them back and forth between the changes. Before mounting the summer tyres, they will check the valves and replace them if needed, check the balance of the tyres and the tyre pressure. They will check the tread depth and mount the tyres in the correct position based on the rotation.
If you do the change yourself, you will need to ensure that you mark the tyres, so that next time you know how to rotate them. Preferably you need to get the tyres correctly inflated while mounting them. If you don’t have tools to do that, you need to drive to the petrol station. Remember to store the tyres in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
When the summer tyres are mounted, it is just to drive and enjoy the summer.
