Just be careful at night, still too cold for summer tires to have grip.

With that said, I just put on my summer set as well. I couldnt wait anymore.

I'm going to wait another month up here in MN. I don't trust our weather after the volume of snow we've gotten this year. Plus I have never seen more pot holes in my life. Our roads took a beating this year.

I usually wait until Tax day (4/15). There are still a few morning drives with temps in the 30's ahead. Even in the 40's my car handles way better with the winter tires than the PS2's.
