I only used dedicated summer tires while I lived in Hawaii. Summer tires become useless on snow, ice, or simply when it gets below 45 degrees outside. I think the weather in Utah changes too much to go with a dedicated summer tire and risk getting caught in a late spring or early fall storm.

Instead I use an ultra high performance all-season like the General G-MAX AS-03 from spring to fall. They still handle good enough for spirited summer driving in the canyons with M-Coupe, they're cheap, they last longer, and they can actually be driven in low temperatures with light snow and ice on the ground. For the winter months around November to February I switch to a set of Blizzak's on a dedicated set of rims.
