So, is it time to put on our summer tires? Yes and no. Let's take a closer look.
When should we install our summer tires?
Ideally, the beginning of April is a good time. It is still cold in March and in the morning, it may be cold, and our summer tires may not be suitable. Having said that, it is still the time to book our appointment to install our tires because there will be a strong demand in the coming weeks.
When should we replace our summer tires?
Our summer tires usually need to be replaced after about 25,000 kilometers, or after 3 or 4 summers. However, it all depends on the tire and the use. You can check if the tire is still good using a specialized tool or just a regular quarter. Insert the caribou's nose toward the bottom of the tire groove.
