I'm trying to decide whether or not to sell my Winter wheels and tires before I get there.
I run Summer tires year round without issue. Winters are pretty light here and it's fairly rare for it to snow.

Okay, cool thanks. I read somewhere that Summer tires aren't optimal under 45 degrees F. I know it gets a little colder that that there, but it prob won't be a big issue.

Been through one winter here and I think it gets pretty cold but not THAT cold. Just got aftermarket wheels/summer tires and plan on running them all year too

It does get somewhat cold here, but usually the temps during the day will counter the cold temps at night and warm up the roads some. Summer tires don't give the best grip when they are really cold, but it is definitely sufficient. You could always switch to the Continental DWS tires if you thought you were still going to be driving someplace with inclement weather. They last a while and provide decent performance.

I'm down... Every Thursday a bunch of cars meet up at the swamp on okaloosa island too. Just throwing out the idea if we don't get much interest on here.

So far... I love it! The car scene down here is serious. We don't have 93 octane, but e85 and 100 octane race gas at the pump makes up for it. Going to a meet tonight, I'll post pix tomorrow.

It'd be nice to meet some of the people around this way and maybe go for a cruise/shoot. I don't know of the best cruise spots other than gulf shores/98. Maybe we can get something together some time.

It's a little ride for some, but 30-A is always a nice spot, along with plenty of good places to eat.

I live in Niceville and should be back around the end of March. 30A is a nice drive. My wife likes going out to Seaside.

Early spring would be a nice ride out, we can all sync up and take some pics.. My G/F always like a ride down 30-A. At the very end of 30-A ( east end) shades restaurant is a great place to grab a bite.

30A is a really nice area. I'm down for a meet up and drive there. BTW, anyone here drive the AW 335 e92 with the car bra protector around gulf breeze? Been seeing it on 98 lately.
