Summer tires for a 50 min drive in winter?

I'm bringing my M3 back into Ontario Canada in two weeks. The summer tires are still on. When the car comes off the truck, I've got a 50 min drive home. The weather is around -10C to -4C with clear roads. What are your opinions on safety for driving it, or should I just hire a flatbed tow?

No snow, but it may be a little wet hovering around -3C like today. Scared those tires would be like hockey pucks.

If you use caution, it shouldn't be a problem.

Like others have said, if the ground is clear then just don't floor it and you'll be fine. If it starts to snow then hope you're around the corner from home.
