Is It Summer Yet?

Installed my winter tires/rims on the Jeep last night and I miss my summer set up already. The lowsy ride with these 215 x 75's compared to my 31's is tempting me to switch em back already. Here's a couple pics of the differences in them on the jeep. Had us laughing pretty good while doing the switch so I took a couple cell pics and thought I'd share them with ya.

If I'm looking at that right it looks like your summer tires are better for winter tires... keep the 31's on.. but that's just me.

I can't wait for summer. it's a bitterly cold and foggy day in San Diego, probably won't even get to 65 degrees today. Brrrrr

I have not so fond memories of Goose Bay, Labrador and the weather reports with highs in the -20's. I like these brutal winters out here

Fortunately here my "winter trim" is putting the soft top on

So why change tires?? From the pics it looks like the "fun" tires might be better for winter. i.e., snow, although the not so fun tires might be better in rain....

The 31's are good in snow but the icy roads around here are better navigated by "road" or AT tires. More contact on those icy rascals. Besides, the salt they use attacks the rims something fierce. Yah, mid-Michigan is a lot different this time of year then when I lived in Santa Cruz back in 82...
