Summers on yet?

Has anyone put summer rubber on yet? With such a mild winter I'm tempted but am waiting until the city patches whatever holes are out there.

can't wait to put big fat sticky rubber back on and hit the races.

Roll is done, only the rear passenger side rubs, and that not too much. If i remove the 5mm spacers, probably not any rubbin.
