Summer shoes

For those of you you who have been on your winter shoes...when are you planning to switch back to your summer tires? Getting tempting to switch soon with this nice weather we're having today here in Wisconsin....

Ask the old man down the street who has lived through many winters. I live in the midwest and leave my winter tires on until April 15th. It's 70 degrees today but winter is certainly not over.

Yeah, I'm waiting until they fill more potholes before I go back. My winter setup absorbs the impact much better than the OEM's.

I'm in Minneapolis and I changed my shoes last weekend. I think it would be fine now. Worst case scenario, I won't drive it if it snows again.

I switched the beginning of March. I was sporting the RFT's before, so it was less of a decision.
