or you'll be sorry when that freak April snow storm hits you "Smack" in the front fender.
We get one of those every year.....No point in trying to be tough guys, as nature will beat you every time.

i should be buying a nother set of ROH's next month, till then its basketweaves in the back and bottle caps in the front *wiggle*

03-26-2005, 02:11 PM
I am gonna put on mine today ... if i doubt there will be any heavy snowstorm ...but it does then i will just leave it in the garage :D

03-26-2005, 10:53 PM
ya there's always something mother nature has for us... i guess i'll stick with my plan :)

03-27-2005, 12:14 AM
What's the rush people? I usually wait until mid-April. By then we've had a decent amount of rain to wash away all that salt and sand off our roads. Plus like you all know...that 1 or 2 freak snow falls we normally get. No way I'm chancing spinning out on my Michelin Pilot Sports!!! Patience people.....


03-27-2005, 12:15 AM
I agree to wait until mid-april!!

03-27-2005, 12:21 AM
Cold weather = Hockey Puck Tires

Not until its nice and warm out.

03-27-2005, 01:34 PM
it's funny how we all can't wait to get the summer shoes out! dang our winters our too long. *uzi*

03-27-2005, 03:38 PM
End of June.

03-27-2005, 05:05 PM

03-27-2005, 05:25 PM
Better not snow again, I put the 19s on the X5 today. These things are heavy! 69lbs for the front and 72lbs for the rear. Waxed the rims before installing.

damn bruce you're already pimpin the X.. *shiner*

that long term forcast is pretty good.. by 11 all road salt should be washed off :D

03-27-2005, 08:53 PM
Rocking basketweaves with cooper cobras for now. It's way too warm for winter tires, my blizzaks were getting eaten up like crazy.

03-27-2005, 08:58 PM
End of June.

haha ... :D you're always the last one, buddy ! *th-up*

03-27-2005, 09:51 PM
I'm going to wait until the end of April. Last year it was a warm Thursday afternoon in mid April, clear sky, about 15 degrees, all the snow melted so I put my summer tires on. The next morning.... Learned my lesson...

03-27-2005, 10:40 PM
Probably about a month. Cold weather + aggressive summer tires = poor grip anyways.

03-28-2005, 01:46 PM

:D I know! I'm so anal when it comes to my car! I want ALL the salt off the road and dirt from the winter GONE before I take my car out. I will NEVER take my car to a carwash, not even to a do it yourself one cuz I am afraid the bristles will scratch my paint. It has to be warm enough for me to wash my car comfortably in my own driveway. So anything between 20 to 25 degrees is good weather. Hopefully we'll have that by the end of June! I HATE driving my car when it is dirty!!! :mad: Plus I don't find it fun driving my car if it's not warm out.
