Whos going into spring/summer mode?
 
Think its time to lower the car and put the rims on again? Who else can relate?

I was going to say no, but looking at the weather in ontario, the low is not expected under 5 degrees for the next two weeks. I wouldn't, but you could maybe get away with it.

I'll probably take the S2000 out in about two weeks want to make sure it rains all the salt away and stays above 0 at night.

As long as its dry, its ok to go for a drive. Wet or condensation , NO

Just had my baby towed to the shop for some much needed Spring prep. Can't wait to get her back in April! New shoes, completed interior, new clutch/FW/tranny/SSK... OHH YEAAAA!

I'm not putting my summers on until its seriously warm all the time. Going from 205 winters to 255 ZR summers in the back will make me feel like alonso and i'll start driving like a jackass, which is a bad idea till the grip is ideal and here to stay.

the rest of summer mode is just brake, latch, latch, button, and maybe a DJ screw CD.

I don't care if it is cold as long as there is no salt I'm driving my car. That goes for the fall too it's out till the end of Nov first salt it's gone.

There is salt dust on the ground that is transfered to your car when it gets wet it is activated and then you get rust....no driving till no salt!!

Otherwise why bother storing your cars at all?

to be safe, going to put my summers on in April, think March is a hit or miss with snow storms.

I am slowly doing prep to ready it. Have to go to the DMV as well and get some paperwork in order. I am on summers and near bald rears so either way, I need to be careful until I get a set of rears. I am thinking as of 1st of April (slightly before that) it will be on the road. If there is a surprise storm, I will just stay at home. Once it is on the road it needs to go in for suspension install.

My summer wheels have all season tires, so they are probably going on shortly. A little snow wouldn't phase me.

I was thinking of putting my summer wheels on, but they are too wide to fit in the car wash rails! fcplm Gotta wait a few more weeks...*sad*
