I'm hoping to align my summer boots with my next oil change - so they can re-learn my TPMS. The dealership in Cornwall are pretty cool to deal with

Firehawk Indy Wide oval's aren't too bad on the cold pavement.. 323 HP isn't enough to lay a patch

No summer tire should be used until the lowest average temp is 45F. Traction is not optimal until then.

I'm going to try to get mine booked in for the body repairs in the next week or so. Also need an oil change, may as well switch over the tires at the same time. Aaaannnnd while I'm there, will have the dealer check out my brakes, definitely something going on with them.

We think a warped rotor. Get some vibration when braking over 100km/hr. Started noticing it a couple of weeks ago.

Well I called the dealer about the brakes, taking it in on Wednesday to have them look at them, they figure it should be covered under warranty!!! Here's hoping!

I'm itching too but the Coopers have Awesome grip in the warmer months but hate weather below 5c.

So another week or so for me.

Well, I just switched back to the winter tires yesterday. The low morning temps had me a bit worried, plus looking back at last October, we already had snow this same time.....the car certainly drives differently with the winter shoes, but I love that she has a "different" look for the next few months. I am now ready for winter!!!

I switched back a couple weeks ago. The back end was breaking loose with the slightest bit of throttle pressure. Don't know how much driving I'll be doing this winter, but it's ready if I'm willing. LOL

I must not be driving right, I have yet to get it to break loose in the mornings, almost don't believe there's an issue with the temps... I did play in the Calaway parking lot on the weekend a bit (not very successfully)

Maybe his garage is quite a bit warmer than the outside temps. Mine is at 10-15 when its only 3-4 outside. By the time the temp on the car shows 3, I've been driving for 10 mins, and its been around 10 at the end of the day. Hope he doesn't get caught tho!!!
