I've just been putting it off since the temps seem to be in the 40-50s until they stop forecasting :/

Snow's will go on the beater though, I always do it turkey day morning

on a side note both Proxes4 and Starspecs both say right on the side wall to not drive them in near freezing temperatures regardless of road condition.

I have Proxes4. No problem what so ever in near or even below freezing weather.

Anyone who says otherwise has either never driven on them or they need to compensate for bad driving by blaming mishaps on their tires.

But as far as the thread, my snows are prob going on Friday afternoon.

Looks like you need 25 posts to vote... but my answer is no. I'm riding some Hankook Ventus V12 k110 summers that are doing surprisingly well in the cold, including that storm New England got in October (kind-of-sorta-almost-as-good as all-seasons with snow on the ground). They do so well in the dry cold that I'm going to wait until the plows are out again to mount my winter tires (Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D's, which are ok... they do well in the slush but aren't super grippy in deep snow).

I'll be putting my wrx back on the road this weekend and then once it is consistently below 40 I'll pick up some snows.
