    Default Bringing Out Summer Ride & Swapping Out Winter Tires...February Too Early???

    With the most recent nice weather and decent weather coming up in the next couple of weeks, has anyone contemplated bringing out their summer rides?

    My only concern would be all the loose gravel on the sides of the road.

    Too early for sure. My summer ride is kept off the roads specifically because of gravel, not just snow. Wait until April when all the streets are swept. I've already seen a few sweepers out so you may be in luck!

    Considering I drove my summer ride through the winter every now and then, I don't have issues. lol

    Saw a Bentley, Rolls Royce, and a few Porsche's out over the weekend.. Must be okay if the ballers are doing it.

    Ballers buy new cars when they get rock chips.

    I was thinking about it but I feel bad about calling MaskedBandit and asking if he can re-insure my car as I cancelled coverage halfway through December

    Been thinking about getting the summer tires on the Datsun, but the only thing stopping me is I'm waiting for another part to come in and just want to do everything together. Weather is definitely nice enough for it!

    I know a bunch of people who have switched tires on their daily already. Way to early for that!

    Usually I wait until gravel goes away. Lethbridge did shit all for street cleaning last spring though... well they actually didn't street clean really at all.

    I'll probably be lightly driving my car when my tires show up.

    The only reason I haven't put my summers back on is because I know it'll snow 48 hours later.

    I already saw the street cleaners out last week, maybe it was just a one-off

    So glad I went with the performance winters this year. My gf's hakka 8's are all but destroyed already lol.

    Been driving the RC-F quite a bit too, and the temps are still too low for PSS's. Lots of oversteer, lots of fun. Really have to take it easy on the throttle, even on clean roads there's some wicked snap oversteer if I floor it.

    I am just waiting for the time change with warmer / longer evenings before I take them out.

    Is this due to the soft tire compound and dry roads?

    I'll be keeping my winter tires on until April just in case we get a big spring dump.

    I have the same amazing tires (studded) on my daily and I refuse to cause unnecessary wear on a $1400 set of tires haha. Work truck for the win!
