Probably not just yet for me. Looks like there is still chance for the temp to fall below 0 on Friday. If 14 day forecast are all above 7, I'd go for it. But definitely a day to do a nice clean up for sure.

Can't wait to drive the M on sport tires. I've only experienced winters and as good as they are for dry road performance, I suspect my grin will be bigger once I throw the performance tires on.

End of March. Going to wait a few more weeks, although I was super tempted to slap them on today.

+14C tomorrow on the West Coast! But still quite chilly for the morning commute. Another few weeks should do it over here as well.

A little early for this in Alberta, I will make the switch when my new HREs come in

Should be mid April for the switch for me we can get some late season snow....

As soon as the streets have been swept. If the city is confident it won't be (paying to) salting the Ottawa roads any more then probably about time to throw the summers back on.

I can hardly wait however.

a few of my friends have put there summers on already.

I think its a foolish thing to do right now, as stated above the
weather is too unpredictable so to be safe I will wait.

It's fine though, it's melting by the time it makes it to the ground.

I drove to 2 client meetings today with my summer's on.

Take it easy though and don't gun it unless you're aiming totally straight.

Also, it's best to stick to the main roads as they have more traffic that keeps the ground warmer and prevents the water from icing over.
