The difference between winter and summer tyres lies in the difference between the composition of the tread’s rubber mixture.

The difference between winter and summer tyres lies in the difference between the composition of the tread’s rubber mixture. At temperatures below 7 degrees centigrade, a summer tyre becomes hard and loses its characteristics, which results in reduced grip. That is why tyres should be changed when air temperature falls below or goes over 7 degrees centigrade.
