    Summer tires are not built for cold weather. They will not perform properly. The tire will lose its elasticity and may crack. There's a risk of chipping the overly stiff thread block. Chipped and cracked tires are not safe to drive on and must be replaced.

    Got my tires, brake pads and rotors installed today, and for the 2nd time in a year and a half they put the maximum air pressure in and not the recommended. Drove just down the street to a car show and let some of the air out so instead of being at 50lbs, they’re at 36. Of course about 9 people said as they walked by, “I hope that guy knows you’re letting the air out of his tires”. Lol.

    Let me (US) know how they do in Snow, Ice should be no problem.

    Well might be once you get the SuperCharger :)

    I have a 2016 Jeep Renegade for the winter. These tires won’t see snow but they are good enough that they have the little snowflake symbol on them.
