When is the best time to replace regular tires for snow tires on my 2008 BMW 1 Series?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Colleen McGee, Driving Instructor at Americas Driving School Hi, Ms Lee. The best time to put snow tries on is BEFORE the snow comes otherwise you may get caught in the snow and will have a long wait for every one else putting snow tires on. Also know the laws in your state about when studded tires are allowed. in Oregon they are allowed from Nov 01 to April 01 normally.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube When snowy weather is expected would be a good time for switching to snow tires.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at Hey Ms. Lee, it would depend what your living/weather conditions are and when you anticipate the winter season to begin.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive It depends on where you live. If you are in an area that gets a lot of snow, you probably want do put snow tires on sooner than later. If you are in an area that doesn't see a lot of snow, you will probably be just fine with a good all-season tire.

Julie Scroggins, Vice President, CFO at Waukegan Tire and Supply Company Inc. Dear Ms. Lee, You should change to winter tires when the temperature is consistently below 45 degrees. Depending on where you live it should be about mid November. Julie
