Its april in the great white north and I had to put my summer tires on. The dry pavement was raising hell with my soft compound winter rubber and I couldn't take it anymore. Probbly will snow in july or something stupid. Just sayin

Been sunny here for 2 weeks straight ,too weird.

Even tho we're supposed to have winter tires out on the 'Wet Coast', I never change over from the M&S types.

If it snows heavily here, I just don't go anywhere even with my AWD CUV. The heavy wet snow that we get here is incredibly difficult to negotiate especially when hills are involved - nasty...

If I ever have enough money to spare I'll pick up another set of wheels, and some strictly summer tires. Then I'll put some winters on my factory wheels. But for now I just run all-season tires. As long as I'm not plowing snow with my bumper, my car can go in anything I've tried. I did have to turn off the (normally great) traction control when I pulled onto a sheet of ice and couldn't get the car to move again.

It is really convenient to have both sets mounted on their own rims, but a bit pricey initially.

The latest trend with tire dealers up here is that they store the set of tires/wheels that your not using then swap them out when the seasons change. Great idea although I don't know what it costs...

Normally we get -20 or colder and all seasons just don't cut it( to hard). I have 225/40 -18's for summer and super soft blizzaks for winter. I have tried 3 different tires for winter these are the best so far. What works in cold temps get pulverized on dry pavement. Tests have shown that a soft winter tire is better for cold weather wet or dry braking than an all season or summer tire under the same conditions. I take safety super serious,we have lots of poor drivers here and avoiding them is tantamount.

Too funny, ice is ice better in my drink than on the road.

My Toyota Venza AWD has rather huge 20" wheels & tires. They make the CUV look kinda like a Tonka toy, ha!

I can't imagine what another full set of 20" wheels plus tires would cost. Best that I just stay home when it snows...

Man, that's some serious snow.

We're full into spring here with temps around 20C lately. I hope to get into D.C. this weekend to see the cherry blossoms.

I don't know what you guys back east did to deserve that weather but that is just brutal. But at least now I know where all our snow went. smile
