Just wondering if anyone plans on switching to summer tires when the warm weather hits? I have always used all-season tires but maybe I might actually do summer tires this season. Anyone else?
Yeah, I definitely agree. I am in Los Angeles so we don't see snow. I don't know tires that well, what's the difference between a summer tire and something like the AT-S? Would the AT-S not preform well in rain (something we also very rarely get in LA)?Subir_roo said:The AT-S is a great all around tire. I only ask because the tires on the car currently are not super stellar in the snow. Depending on where you live it might be better to grab a set of snows and wait until the all seasons are worn out to get summers. Then you can grab a second set of wheels and have a dedicated summer and snow set!
Got ya, thanks! I have an odd obsession with the AT-S's...Subir_roo said:The AT-S does fine in rain. Generally an A/T tire will be mud and snow rated and use a different rubber compound than the pure summer tire. Some summer tires do have good wet road ratings. The issue is generally with cold temps and ice/snow. The rubber compounds used in summer tires do not preform well in those conditions.
Oh sure!!! We love when OTHER PEOPLE spend our money for us... Lol!Subir_roo said:Yup! I'm just here to justify spending large sums of money!
I like it!Subir_roo said:Find a nice sheet, cover them with that and throw glass top on it then call it a "table" and she'll never know! Disclaimer: I tried this on my GF and it didn't work at all. But I have 3 sets of wheels/tires in the garage anyway!
