If the ambiant temp is constantly below 5-7degC for greater than 6-8 weeks or longer, then yes, the compound can be damaged.

My winter tyres are so much better in dry, sub 5degC temps than my summer tyres, that I wouldn't even consider running summers in winter, even here in the UK in a relatively mild winters.


I don't know why the OP is so obsessed with asking about wear rate of his summer tyres in low temps - seems an irrelevant question to me
