Winter tyres are still very much in demand at the moment as the harsh weather conditions continue to sweep across the UK and one of the questions we are regularly asked by customers is whether or not they need to switch back to regular tyres when spring arrives.
There are no hard and fast rules relating to whether you should not use winter tyres in the summer months, instead it comes down to a matter of personal preference, budget and whether you have a suitable place to store the set of tyres that are not in use.
It is interesting to read the Quentin Willson’s view on the matter. The leading motoring expert informed the readers of his Sunday Mirror column today: “I’ve been running on Pirelli Scorpion winter tyres on my 4×4 for the past 5,000 miles and have noticed no difference in dry grip, ride quality, noise and, most importantly, wear. So I’m not going to change back to normal tyres, and keep these on all the time. With prices starting at around £80, these Pirellis look like a good solution to winter rubber you can use all year round.”
