Doing the girlfriends car and the truck tomorrow at discount. Have to get hers mounted on the steelies, and the truck's setup needs a rebalance. I'll toss the CRV's on maybe Sunday in the garage.

I'm going to miss how easily the RS slides around on cold days when I swap to winter tires.

We got snow here yesterday and it was a mad dash for people to get snow tires installed. Every place was packed. Went this morning to drop off some wheels and tires to get mated and was still busy. The tech liked that I was getting summer tires installed

Winter tire time is the next day after it snows. You need at least 1 day in your summer junk so you know why you have a snow set.

Think I'm going to through them on today before I head back to school. However, going to be a little warm today. Do you guys think it'll be bad for me to drive 200 miles on them today?

Since I'm off work today and it is 60 degrees, I figured I might as well do it now. Bring on the snow!

No seasons dealing just fine while people are in the ditch...seriously I don't even have "good" no seasons, and I have to try to break the tires loose. I'll have to find a spare set of wheels this summer and get some snow tires while they're cheap
