Summer tires



Ok. can someone explain to me why we all spent like 600$ on winter tires this year? there have been approximatly 3 instances where i accually used then, two of them were up north. Can someone go beat up the weatherman and see if its accually going to get cold at some point? if it isn't just tell me so i can put my 18 inch summer's on


seriously folks, post your estimated date of summers going back on.
for me, im gonna do it very early pending on weather

Since I put on all 4 winter tires, I haven't seen snow yet. But really, I'm not complaining.. I'm enjoying this weather. At least if it does come down hard, we're prepared.

you guys are right. but i hate running on
2 195/60/15 nordic wintertrac on black steelies
1 195/60/15 pirelli p6000 all season on bottlecap (HORRIBLY unbalanced)
1 195/55/15 bf goodrich i dont even know tire, on silver steelie

yes only two of them are winters. yes the other two not only have different tread, but are different sizes and are on different rims.

and in the summer i have freshly straightened, balanced and refinished 18er alloys wrapped in

Better safe then sorry!
I'd keep them on until it's 10°+ everyday.

i am tempted to put on the 19s lol. but hey, you never know what's going to happen, so it's safer to keep the winters on. you dont want to put on the summers and the next thing you know, there's a snow storm *knock on wood*.

Winter tires don't just perform good on snow, but also in colder conditions...
