i used to live in vancouver before i moved to montreal. i used summer tires year round because it only snows for bout a week there and when it snows, i dont use my car... although people say the summer tires loose a great deal of traction when the temperature drops, in my experience, you only really get into trouble if you try to use summer tires on the snows. in freezing temperatures with no snow, traction on summer tires really isnt that bad.
