I've been running summer/winter tires for decades. This year starts with the winter tires still stacked in the garage. Here in NE Indiana, we average almost 3' of snow a year. We had none in Dec, less than 2" in Nov, and the 10-day forecast doesn't show any snow.
My "summer" tires are a little bit of a cheat, as they're not true summer performance tires, but rather performance all-season that are poor in the snow. They can handle the winter temps (which are also fewer since Nov) better than true summer tires. I went that way to save a few bucks, getting more miles from the tires than true summer tires. I may rethink that next time, as my overall miles/yr are significantly less now than when the car was the primary family-hauler and I don't need to stretch the tires as far.
