    Winter/Summer tire situation

    Hi All,
    Here is the situation, my lease runs out in Nov 2013, I plan to upgrade to the 2013 model, assuming it's out then.
    It's Sep and I have about 4/32 of thread left on my summers and a pretty new winter set.
    I want to get away with not buying new summers next summer as I hate to spend 800 bucks and than return the car.
    Would you suggest switching to winters now and driving on them untill May, something I don't really want to do or any other creative ideas?
    I drive about 12k a year. Thoughts?

    Keep an eye on the internets for used tires that are less used than yours?

    yeah only thing I could think of is getting used summer tires, as long as they have even wear.

    You could throw winters on now, but you'll lose handling and likely wear the winters more than they would during their intended season.

    Or you could always utilize having new summer tires on your trade in as a negotiating point.
