    anyone go with the 3 season tires?

    just curious how well they work....in a drag race would the summer tires get significantly better traction?

    here in WI where it hits 80 degrees for 10 days a year i dont know if i want the summer tires....seems like everyone is getting them......after dealing with F1's im afraid to try another summer tire

    Living in a cold region, I would stay with the all season tires. The summer tires would get better traction.

    Summer tires are only good until 40 degrees,, then ours not recommended to drive on

    Agree with Stormer and HC1. I'd get All season tires if you live in WI. Lived in Kenosha, and you would only get the benefit of the Summer Tires June - Sept at best. Maybe for the 1 week Indian summer in early October that typically occurs every year.

    my f1's on my gt500 only stick good for 1-5 days a year....dont even think it hit 90 degrees this past summer....probably only 2 weeks of 80 degrees....what a horrible summer for F1 traction

    I have the "standard" tires. So far I like them. Granted I only have 200ish miles on the car so far. Hopefully get a few mores on it next few days

    Summer tires brake loose really easy on cold days it takes a couple of Miles before they to get traction after that thay do fine I have noticed a two pound air gain
    In all four after driving for a while.

    How do you tell the difference between summer and all season pirellis?

    I have all season in Washington. I would get Summer tires if I had another set of wheels just for Summer, but then I would want wider ones on the back so, might as well wait and get the Summer tires in the size we need to really hook up!;)

    Summer version says 'PIRELLI PZERO' on the tires, All Season says 'PIRELLI PZERO NERO' (and right underneath that it says 'ALL SEASON').
