    I know as soon as I put back on my summer setup we'll get a foot of snow! I'll probably hold off till about mid-March.

    yep, we've had two snow falls... Once in Oct. and one in (I think it was) December. But it all melted within 2 days. Maybe get a few inches tomorrow I hear.

    Why do you think you'd get better MPGs with your summer setup?

    Even without snow, winter tires will perform much better in cold weather. People call them "snow tires" but they're really "winter tires."

    Yeah most people say temps below 40 can cause the tires to grip poorly

    Call it an observation. having knobby winter tires on as apposed to directional, have always shown better mpg's for me. It doesn't hurt that the warmer weather helps as well. But even if it's just 1-2 mpg difference, it's still a difference

    Wouldn't have thought back on 1/13 that we'd have such a mild winter. I'm OK with little or no snow this year. Very OK.

    There is at least a few weeks of potential big snow. 3/13/96 there was a storm that dumped 30" over much of the region.

    Meanwhile I'm searching for Summer tires all over right now because mine are fried. The winters are getting more summer use than my summers did...and its 62 degrees here in NJ right now.
