Question When are you putting your summer wheels on?

Waiting for more + temperature or is it good enough to do it now?

I don't wanna get outta bed one day look out the window and see snow!



I'm thinking waiting until average temperature is around or above 7 degrees?

^it is funny how on that graph none of the tires reach maximum (100% performance) at any temperature. the best you get with all seasons is ~70%, and 90% with performance at 30+ degrees. i always find myself picking apart graphs and figures put together by companies to use as a marketing tool.

but anyway...i'm thinking i'll put mine on at the beginning of april when the 14 day trend on weather network will stay well above 7 most days and no threat of snow. don't wanna wear out the winter boots once it gets warmer outside either.
