The right car tires for summer and winter

Each new season requires a pair of durable and quality-assured tires. In the spring we change from winter to summer tires. In the autumn we go back to the winter tires.

When should I have winter tires?

In Sweden, all cars must have been equipped with winter tires by 1 December each year. The requirement for winter tires extends until the end of March. This can vary from year to year and is regulated by the Winter Tire Act. 

Winter tires include studded tires and studless friction tires. To be approved, your winter tires must have a tread depth of at least 3 millimeters. You can drive with studded tires from 1 October to 15 April. These dates may vary depending on winter road conditions. Friction tires can be used during the same period and also work the rest of the year. Keep in mind, however, that these wear out much faster during the summer and have poorer road properties in the heat. We recommend that you always change to summer tires even if you have friction tires. 

Studded tires or studless tires?

Which tires suit you depends a lot on the climate where you live and how you can plan your driving. For example, if you can plan your driving by taking other routes, keeping a lower speed and being extra careful in traffic, studless tires are an option. For those of you who live in northern Sweden where the winter is snowy and icy, studded tires are always recommended, even if your car has anti-skid. Studded tires are the safest option for traffic control on icy and rutted winter roads. 

Nordic tires

For you who live in a colder climate, we always recommend Nordic tires. The tracking on Nordic tires is zigzagged and is adapted to a colder climate with packed snow and minus degrees. Nordic tires are superior to Central European in terms of driving on ice, snow and slippery surfaces.

Summer wheels

As the owner of a car, you must have changed to summer tires no later than April 15 each year. Your tires must have a tread depth of at least 1.6 millimeters. Keep in mind that a smaller tread depth increases the risk of aquaplaning.

In northern Sweden, the cold nights and a longer winter road law have meant that we usually have winter tires longer than 15 April. This is regulated by the Swedish Transport Agency. 

Balancing

Tire balancing is done in case of symptoms of imbalance to ensure a safe and comfortable driving. Potential imbalance in the tires affects the steering and also leads to higher wear on, among other things, rubber and suspension. Feel free to get help from a professional car repair shop for both tire changes and if you experience instability. At Niemi Bil, we use mechanical technology to measure the balance in each tire and then take appropriate measures.
