it's not the snow, but how cold it is. chances are you have summer tires on your summer car.

temps are still hovering around 2*, so your tires will be absolute shite. play it safe, it's only January.

I wouldn't be suprised if it snows again. Usually it snows at least once more.

I have never taken my snow tires off till mind or end of April.. but my car is parked this year..

Their is something to think of here, ICBC may A big maybe may not cover you if you are is in a accident with tires that don't meet the road conditions on. Would you really want to take a chance with your car that you love over this, or even if you hurt someone or a family member over this too..

I know most people here on rs have nice car with a lot of work done on them, and some with big money into them too, I know most people here miss there car just like me I miss my car too, but your car will still be their when summer come's..
Damn, this shit is morally bankrupt, violent, and pornographic. It fucking awesome.

For Victoria I'd assume the snow is gone. Vancouver is a whole different ballpark.

What crawled up your bum? The salt and snow? There wasn't a need for that OUT of FC.

Final answer... No, don't get ready to pull your summer ride out of the garage or storage yet. Winter has barely stepped into the house and taken off its shoes. We've still plenty of months left to deal with sub-zero temperatures, black ice, snow and ice salt before you should even think about pulling out your summer tires, fancy rims and summer-only rides.
