Anyone else feel the same? I feel like throwing my summer wheels back on the ride after this tiny whiff of decent weather in the past few days!

If this keeps up, I think I'm going to end up having them on within the next week or two!

Damn it... must... resist.

Don't bother yet, plus the streets are gonna be really dirty till the snow melts.

I have the itch as well, but I would hate to be stuck in snow, it's just not worth it for me.

That is true, I'm appalled at the sheer number of potholes everywhere this winter. Bovaird Drive is a minefield right now, ridiculous!

To be really safe, its more like 8-10C. Depends a lot on the tire too. You don't find the rubber is very hard at 5C?

I pull my LMs on this week, but I don't drive much during the week (5km a day tops for work) so I can survive.

As mentioned above, the pot holes are crazy so gotta be careful. And of course don't drive out if there is any fresh snow. I was defeated by a hill(York Mills and Don Mills) the last snow fall we had, cause it was fresh on the ground. Had to reverse down the hill and take another route lol... yea I know.. horrible idea. *no-no*

just put them on, and when the temp drop/snow falls, just take the transit all the way to school.

the best part about the pot holes, is that the city has been busy fixing them while its still cold. Before it even dries out, the next day waters already underneath, frozen, and cracked the pavement LOL.

a pot hole by my house has been fixed 3 times already in the last 4 weeks. It was just fixed about 4 days ago, and its already fallen apart.

this weather sucks.

I have freshly polished lips on my new rims, so they're not leaving my basement until the road is CLEAN. Probably the day before the first cruise (which will be Sunday May 4th btw guys).

Also, when I looked at the 14-day outlook last night there's like 6 straight days of snow coming up.

see, it's times like these, people wonder why I have insurance on the stored car. I just go out for a drive, and when the snow comes back I go back in hiding.

Yeah I saw that :(

I hope at the end of march or early April I can throw the summers on. This has been such a long winter: Nov-April. God friggin damn, almost 6 months - HALF a year!

Not everyone can afford 250+ a month for insurance on a car they are not driving :(

Gotta get new tires for the rims first.
Also, looks like it'll be hoovering around the 0 degrees mark for a while yet.
