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.

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?

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

I did read it right maybe you miss understood me...you drive the car salt dust gets on car then you put it away. Two months later you take it out on a sunny day maybe three days later it rains that is when the salt dust now becomes wet salt and that is why I don't take my car out ever in the winter till all traces of salt are gone.

I doubt there is any salt on the roads in Toronto right now. Seriously, how many times do you think they salted the roads in the past 3 months? And even one good day of rain washes it away.

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.
