Is the switch from all-seasons to summer tires worth it?

I recently purchased some new wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE960as Pole Position tires mounted with about 70-80% tread left. They are 245/35/19 up front and 275/30 in the rear and don't rub from my initial mounting.

I have dedicated winter wheels/tires so all-seasons seem pointless. The tires are already mounted, but will have to be unmounted to refinish the wheels so there's no extra cost there.

So is it worth it going to summer tires? I don't track but could see myself trying it out this year. I'm not an aggressive driver about 90% of the time.

Not sure how much I could sell the Potenzas for, possibly a trade would be the best option but then I'd likely have to deal with shipping.

Opinions, recommendations?
