I've driven on the tires in every non-damaging condition imaginable (see: above 30)...If the temperature falls below 45...traction is SEVERELY compromised...just a little too much throttle and the car slides around. BUT!! If you're careful and knowledgable - you can drive the car. The concern becomes "what if you need to perform an emergency maneuver?"

....so, take that for what you will.
