Switched mine out last weekend, the snow isn't really sticking so the AWD is compensating for the hard summer tires just fine today

My summer wheels/tires haven't seen the outside in over 6 months...



It's now mid-march and the next 7 days look like it won't even break 40 degrees. Has anyone this year put their summer setup on yet?

I decided it's time. My all-seasons were getting too worn out so I bought some Enkei M52 wheels and Kumho Ecsta's. Driving in the snow this morning was better than the bald all-seasons so I guess it was the right decision. Still takes a while to stop though!

So sick of the cold and snow...

As soon as it's above 40 for awhile, and seems to stay that way, Ill swap my summers back on. Being in IL, it could be 55-60 for a week straight, and as soon as I swap them, it will be 25 and there will be a snowstorm.
(I need to move to a warmer climate)

Those of you with 2009+ wrx's with the Dunlop SP01's, when do you change them out for a winter set of tires? (Location dependant)

I live on Long Island, but drive to Vermont on the weekends to go skiing a lot, so I usually swap them around thanksgiving
