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?
It all depends if you are getting the value. The one thing that you would notice with summer tires in your case is increased steering feedback and breaking even when going slower. Based on your driving style I wouldn't do it. RE960 is fine. I would try summer tires after these are done.
