When are winter tyres appropriate?

Winter tyres are designed to work when the temperature drops to 7°C and below. The tread design and compound formulation are better than summer tyres at these temperatures, so they improve grip, traction, handling and braking. The Met office state the average temperatures between October and March are generally below 7°C therefore it makes perfect sense to fit winter tyres.
