I swapped mine the first week it was under 40. A little too early I think since it warmed up after that week. I also didn't want to have to swap the wheels out when it was like 15 degrees out.

After much procrastinating the deed is finally done as of this afternoon.

Rides like a Cadillac on 16" snow tires when compared to my 18" summers.

Looks like tonight, though I'm sure this snow we're supposed to get tomorrow will be minimal.

Finished changing mine about an hour ago. Forecast says no snow tomorrow anymore, but now snow on Thursday and it's going to get much colder.

Mine have been on there for about a month now, didn't feel like doing it when cold either, plus it was raining a ton so I figured that would help with wear.

Supposed to snow tonight, tomorrow, and a little on friday. I doubt it will accumulate though.

I usually wait until Tom Skilling sez we're getting snow, then they go on. Mine are stacked and ready to go!
