    Anyone in PA put their summer wheel/tires on yet?

    Just curious if anyone in PA has decided to change over to their summer/wheel tires yet? I live in Northeast PA, still running my steelies with my General Altimax snow tires. Looks like nicer days are in the future. I thought about switching to my summer wheels and tires today, but something told me to hold back.

    It is not just snow / ice. Winter tires work well in cold weather. Summer only tires do not. Wait for nights that are near freezing or above.

    I leave for work at the typically coldest time of the day - 6:00 - 6:15. It is always an annoying wait.

    I'll be leaving mine on at least for this week. There's a few days the forecast is still calling for the high temp to only be a bit above 40.

    I live in ME so kind of off topic, but I always wait until the street sweepers start making rounds!

    I can't wait to put mine on.

    I currently have 3 of them sitting in my garage... 1 in my parents garage along with my jack/stands/ramps. Guess I will have to grab those.

    I wish I would've waited until the road sweepers were out now. These stock summer tires throw every single little piece of gravel on the road everwhere! I don't know if it's cuz they're basically new or just a softer tire?
    It sounds like underneath my car is being shot by a firing squad of shotguns.

    Yep - softer tires pick up and fling gravel very well.

    It's the tires and the car itself. This is the worst car I've ever been in when it comes to road noise. Anyone that gets in my car says the same thing when driving over some gravel.
