Summer tires reduce MPG?

Yep....not sure why the summer tires makes my right foot heavier.

It is good to have the summer tires back on. My 19" Blizzaks handled the winter mess very well, but nothing like the handling performance of the PS2 in good weather. I forgot what I was missing with the handling of the PS2. Almost like a new car.

I was thinking the same thing, but the weather was over 60 degrees for 2 days in a row. Must be summer. . Could not resist.

I will be travelling for the majority of March.... ///M will be parked. So I should be ok. Fingers crossed.

+1000, it as been in the 50's for three days in a row. The minute I change back into the summers I expect 12" of snow because that's how I roll. Going down to Charlotte at the end of the month and will do it then with the 1200 mile service.

Always awesome to get the summers back on. We're getting teased with spring here in Indiana, but I'm sure it'll snow again...

I just put my PS2s back on this morning too, coming from my 19" Blizzaks as well.
What a difference!
