yes, but we haven't gotten the really cold temps, or any consistency in those temps this year. Our cold temps are around 20 degrees, so I can't feel the difference on my summer tires. Just to be on the safe side, I decide to swap this winter, i did it in mid-January too. I usually swap around November. My summer tires go back on in April.
It's ice that you have to worry about with summer tires.
I don't drive my car to work, so this car gets most of it's work over the weekends and about 3 weekday nights a week. I was really debating this year whether I could get away with summers this year. I woudl have limited my driving during certain days....
