It's a car. It will be fine. Mine lives in the driveway all year. That's how it works - my 1983 280ZX Turbo is in the garage.

There you have it. Makes NO SENSE to commute every day. Find an extended stay hotel or tiny place you can rent to sleep over on weeknights.

Kumhos aren't bad tires, and in general they seem to perform pretty well. They are a preferred tire on the Generation 3 Camaro. Their main fault seems to be that they wear out early.

Warped rotors can be caused by something as simple as lug bolts not torqued in the correct sequence and to the wrong setting. They also don't take long to change.
