Looking back at my logs, looks like I did it April / May depending on the year. I think March is too early around here.

This winter is going to kill me. It is neverending. Why am I shoveling snow in March? It will kill me if this keeps up...

Definitely sucks. I'm trying to drive mine at least once a week and even that is difficult. My black X5 looks space gray at this point.

The weather is finally warming up, and my trigger finger has developed an itch! I know, I know, it's still too early...

I switched last week and it was fine. The only problem is they swapped the sides of the tires......

I changed mine this past weekend! Woo hoo! Looks and feels better already. The time is NOW! I also cleaned out Boston grime and sand from the air filter housing. The city owes me for scooping up all winter!

Once we find a sunny weekend, we plan to meet up and maybe go for a scenic drive and compare cars, DCT/MT, etc. Probably early April?

Congrats on the match.

We'll need to do a meet before you leave town since you have the most mods on your car.

Not only did I get rid of my winter wheels, I mounted my track wheels with R rubber on today and drove around for 30 minutes to try to heat up the tires a bit (they were brand new) and check the fitment on the TE37s. They look sweet, and the car is glued even with the cold tires! Spring here I come!!!

Wow, lucid the new moderator

I like my PS2's way better than the Blizzak's. I'm not sure if I should try the PSC for the TE37 G2. By the way I got stopped for speeding in E. Boston but the Trooper was nice enough to let me go with a warning.

PSCs are great. I have them on my stock 19" wheels. You don't need them on the street though. They are even lighter than PS2s however.

So what is your street setup, track setup, and winter setup? Tires/wheels. I'm confused! I may take my car for the hell of it to NHMS with the PCA white group one day and beat the crap out of it stock to see what it can do with 0 mods. Not even brake fluid. Let it boil and let the air get in the lines and see how it behaves! Like I told you last time, the Porsche ABS sensors went nuts! Lots of fun.
