Tyre change season begins

National News // By Tay Kinnear // March 26, 2019

With the weather warming up – the tyre change season is now underway.

Garages across the country say they’re busy with those wanting to get expensive winter tyres off to save them for another season. But is it too early?

The motoring organization the TCS normally has the advice that winter tyres should be fitted from October to Easter – in German that’s known as O to O.

But Easter is late this year – Good Friday is not until the 19th April. Because of that, the TCS say it’s OK to change the tyres now.

It’s likely it’ll be easier to get an appointment at the moment – as the rush won’t start for a couple of weeks.
