There's no exact date when you should switch out your tires, but it's a good idea to change them when the temperature is consistently above 45 degrees, and is no longer dipping below freezing at night.

If you keep your winter tires on too long, they will wear out too quickly. Winter tires are made for cold temperatures, and when used regularly in warmer temperatures, the rubber takes a toll, wearing prematurely and shortening the lifespan of your tires.

Similarly, if you put your summer tires on too soon, that can cause issues as well. Summer tires are made for warmer temperatures, and can lose their grip in colder, snowy conditions. It's important to make sure you wait until the weather is warmer before putting on your summer tires.
