It is nearly time to change my winter tyres back to my summer tyres, I marked the summer ones so I know where they were on the car but the question I have is should they go back in the same positions or should I swap front for rear and if so should I swap the same side or diagonally? Any thoughts would be much apreciated.

Hi I always swop the tires every 6000 miles the correct way to do it is in the owners manual this is so that I replace all the tires at the same time and will not have different tread patterns fiitted.

We didn't get much snow here in Luxembourg but tempertures did fall as low as -14, winter tyres are recomended for below +7, next winter they will become compulsory.

It was only 2 degrees when I first went out this morning, with a heavy frost - but it soon warmed up and I am just off to potter in the garden in the sunshine.

I am tempting fate by swapping back to summer tyres this afternoon. Daytime temps here are in double figures now.
