Switching to Summer tires?

Weather in the GTA is getting warmer and warmer! Makes me feel bad for my Blizzaks lol.

So I'm wondering when you guys are switching over to your summer tires!

You guys are really brave. winter is not over and the temp (esp. night time) is still in the negative #s. Better be careful because those summer tires are hard as rock then the temp is in the negative.

10 cm of snow slated for this Wednesday and the long term forecast shows 10-15 cm of snow for next Monday and 10 more cm on Tuesday. (This will hopefully change) Throw in the fact that I've never seen as many potholes as I'm currently seeing and I'm in no rush whatsoever to put on my summers.

Yea I know its still a little too early to put summers on, and I JUST saw the weather forecast for Wednesday and its 10cm of snow...

Just so eager for summer; this winter has been going on for much too long.

I usually take Eglinton heading west from Laird on the way to work. Just after Avenue Rd is a street called Chaplin. I hang a right there and take it out to Bathurst. It's gotten so bad there that I totally avoid the street due to massive amounts of potholes.

When the daytime temps start averaging +10 is the norm.

Chaplin between Eglinton and Bathurst is a minefield right now. I've never seen it that bad and I went to Forest Hill so I'm very familiar with that street.

There are patches on the Allen just north of Lawrence that make me feel like my subframe will pop off.

Glad to see that someone else knows about Chaplin. They actually had it closed off this morning from Roselawn to Eglinton in order to fill the potholes up. I drove by it this afternoon at 2pm after work heading south. Much better but after tomorrow's snow it'll be back to being a disaster.

Left work about 45 minutes ago and saw a 3-4 car pile-up/accident happen between two crosswalks on Davisville before Mt Pleasant. I then saw two people spin out on Bayview extension just before Pottery Rd.

Shouldn't have put your summer tires on dudes.

Keep your snows on Long range forecast still shows lots of cold weather. Remember summer tires / high performance tires use very soft rubber which can actually freeze when temps drop, so its not only about snow.

I swapped out early one year and got caught in todays weather. Virtually zero traction. I was a massive liability. Potholes are unreal this year.
