Summer Tires In Calgary?

I just purchased a 2009 AW M3 in Dallas this weekend and I'll be shipping it up to Calgary in about a week. The car needs two new rear tires and I was wondering how the Michelin Pilot Sports perform in the summer where the temperature ranges from -5 to 25 in a single day. Do I need to get a winter performance tire for the summer or will the summer tires be sufficient for summer driving here? Or should I get all season tires for the rears even though I'll still have summers on the front? I'm from New Orleans so I have no idea how tires perform at low temperatures.

Since this is my first post, I'll add the obligatory photos:







Thanks for your help!

Congrats on the purchase!!

To answer your question regarding tires. No you do not need a performance winter tire during the summer here in Calgary. Calgary actually has pretty great summers, and most people run a proper summer setup. I have to admit, we can have some pretty crazy weather in April (-5 to 25 Degrees), however, that typically never happens in the summer. The Michelin is a great tire, I would recommend you probably purchase the tires from the US as they are significantly cheaper there.

Calgary has a great M3 crowd, feel free to join us at one of our next meets.

Thanks for the advice. I'll call and order the tires now while my car is still sitting at the dealership. Unfortunately I'm going to have to wait about a month before my car arrives in Calgary but I'll definitely try to join up next time you guys meet.
