Ultra High Performance All Seasons run pretty well for anyone who does not want to switch between sets of tires or who drive in areas that have big temperature swings.

Still looks like I won't switch until after Thanksgiving. Or the first day I open the garage and it's snowing, whichever comes first.

Looks like we're in the low 40s/high 30s for the foreseeable future, snow on Tuesday maybe. Just finished putting my Wintersport 3Ds on. Ready for winter and all of the dumb people that it brings.

^^ Jealous.

Still haven't put mine on yet. Temperatures still in the 30's and 40's. Waiting for consistent 20's and low 30's.
