The right time to switch out your all season tires for winter tires is when it gets cold enough to consistently approach freezing, and when there is a threat of snow or ice on the road. That is when the special advantages of the winter tire come into play.

A winter tire has treads that are designed to maintain traction in bad conditions, so that it is easier to turn, stop, and accelerate the vehicle. On top of that, winter tires are made of a particular form of rubber that holds up better to cold temperatures than all season tires would, which further improves the performance of the tires. These aspects make winter tires a true upgrade in bad weather, but you need to remember to move back to the all season tires in the spring.
