Default when do you put your summer wheels back on?

I was thinkin about doin it tonight or some other time this weekend, cause temps are supposed to start being in the mid 50's all the time now, however we usually get a last dusting of snow in the beginning of april. I am swappin my wrx seats with sti seats tomorrow, so thought about leavin the stockers on for the 2 hour drive, and so that I dont scratch them with brackets or anything. When do you guys switch back to your summer wheels?

I wait till the first part of April. In CO it snows also in April but, it usually melts the same day. Wacky.
I usually wait until the first storm in oct-nov to put em' back on.

I changed from ws50s to Goodyear F1s last week. I keep cable chains as an option though. A pair once got my 280ZX out of axle deep spring mud. That happened when I was young and foolish enough to try to cross a field that had just thawed. Try putting chains on under those conditions.

Tax day is good idea for around here. It's supposed to be in the fifites but that is just 'supposed' It will still go below freezing at nights and it is reasonably likely to snow at least once more. It snowed last week 12 inches here in Madison and we aren't that much further north

Yesterday (Madison, WI). I'll ride my bike or have the wife drive me if we get whacked with more snow. Snows go back on around turkey day.
