The safe state is the decisive cue. Because Winter and summer tires differ not only in the depth of the profile, so that we can have on snow and ice for more Grip. You also have to provide a different rubber compound, which leads to a winter low and summer tires at higher temperatures, more Grip. As soon as the temperatures are in the longer term, about seven degrees, summer tyres the safer choice. So you raise a good rubber, testing of the TCS every year to match the season of Winter and summer tires.

Allsaison tires recommend, especially for people who use the car only from time to time. Here’s the rule of thumb: Anyone more than 20’000 kilometres in the year should dispense with all-weather tyres better.
