Well its going to snowing and i just got my summers on
 
So i just got my summer wheels on last week with eagle f1s, and now the forecast says its going to snow. I need to drive from Mississauga to Oshawa tomorrow afternoon, would it still be safe? and do u think they'll salt the roads?. If so, would the salt really damage the wheels?

If there is .5cm of snow on the ground and you have summer tires, you are not going anywhere.

I have to get to Toronto this morning for a series of meetings, looks like I am going to go downstairs and swap back to winters for this week. I am not taking any chances... Mother Nature played an April Fools joke on us abit late.:confused:

Holy hell, what a thing to wake up to this morning.... one last kick in the balls from mother nature. Bitch.

^^ Majority of my office was late this morning, except me of course because i beat the snow in and drove in with the rain lol.

Damn snow. I'm glad I still have my Blizzak winter setup on. Had no issues driving into the office this morning but the flow of traffic was definitely slower than usual. Unbelievable. If I have to shovel my driveway when I get home this evening, I'll flip.

Don't get the rush 4 summers ???
 
Why would anyone switch to summers, when the average temp has still consistently been under 7 degrees celcius.
Also, it is more economical to run the cheaper winter rubber as long as the temps allow for it.
I always wait until May, when most of the nasty potholes are fixed.
