HANOVER, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–When the temperature rises and the sun keeps appearing, it’s time to
change to summer tyres. As a rule of thumb: As soon as the daily
temperatures stay above seven degrees Celsius, and no more frost is
expected, you should change over – but why?

In many European countries, there is a legal requirement to have
adequate winter tyres. In contrast, there are no such regulations for
summer tyres, except in Italy. But even if there is no obligation, there
are very good reasons to put on summer tyres. Compared to winter tyres,
they are specially designed for warm weather conditions, and offer many
benefits. Above all, this is due to the different rubber blend. Winter
tyres are softer and, due to their design, they generally have a higher
rolling resistance than summer tyres. Along with their typical lamella
profile, this delivers perfect grip on snow and ice, but conversely,
this is a disadvantage in higher temperatures. Abrasion increases, which
leads to faster wear and tear. Even more important: Tests by the tyre
manufacturer Continental show that stopping distances at 15 degrees
Celsius are significantly longer with winter tyres. This means a vehicle
with summer tyres under these conditions on a dry road at 100 km/h stops
eight metres earlier than with winter tyres, on wet roads six metres
earlier. Modern summer tyres are also optimised to keep rolling
resistance as low as possible, without compromising grip – with a
corresponding effect on fuel consumption.

“We strongly recommend changing to summer tyres in warmer temperatures.
This protects the material, can reduce fuel consumption, making them
more economical overall, particularly for frequent drivers. But the
improved safety levels are even more important. If you drive on old
winter tyres in the summer, you’re not doing yourself or your wallet any
good”, says Thierry Delesalle from
