Summer setup

Same boat in here...

Last year we got a good couple of inchs in March. I have the contis as summer setup and the recommended temps range is from 40s upward according to my shop.

I am running the mich all season as the winter setup, so I can probably wait till end April.

A safe time of regular above 40 degree temps are around when cherry blossoms come out.

I'll wait until late April myself this year, I'm trying to stretch out my current all-seasons as long as possible and I have 1 road trip left.

There's too much crap on the ground still that the summer tires will pick up and throw everywhere, hold off at least another month

Yea I drove mine once in Germany when it was cold because I had to get it out for shipping. With the summers on it was downright scary. I actually felt like I was going to just slide into a ditch a few times. Very dangerous, but I had to drive it to Frankfurt to get it dropped off for shipping.

I have driven it a few times here, but only when it gets really warm (like 70+ during the day). Other times I just drive my other AWD vehicle.
