I've been in Melville for the past almost 6 months. Rarely do I see 1ers. And when I do, they're 128s..

Well, the street sweepers went by this week, but there is snow on the roads this morning. The switch to summer tires will have to wait a bit more.

Yea the street sweepers had come by in my area. I was tempted to put my winters back on last night after hearing 4-6 inches of snow but held off and we didnt' get more than a light coating. Hope this is the end.
I WANT SUMMER

I think those street sweepers are just teasing us. Damn those sweepers.

Last summer the sweepers never made it down my street. Most Westfield sweeper sightings were in October! Boston taxes with Vermont services.

Summers are on the M. Winters still on the subie.

Not only did i take my winters off last week.. but i was just about to put my RS'3 on, Imagine the suprise on my eyes waking up this morning to the light snow covered roads if i would have had those tires on

I would have actually had to take my stored Miata out on all seasons to go to work....LOL

March messes with us every year. A few warm days and the crocus pop up, then more snow. Looks like highs still below 50 through next week so I'm sticking with the winter tires a bit longer.

I put the summer tires/wheels back on this afternoon. Cleaned them up and applied a coat of Wheel Wax. Made sure that the hubs and lug bolts had a coating of anti-seize. Of course I used a torque wrench to tighten the lug bolts. Can't wait for some 60 MPH entrance ramps tomorrow.

Summers back on. 235's on performance rims with all the extra suspension crap was a gamble. but it fits with 1/4" clearance from strut and lower spring perch. excellent!
