Great point about the huge difference between "all season" and "summer performance."

When I picked up my M3 cabrio earlier this year, I had the winter tires delivered/installed for delivery (and I most certainly agree with all the fantastic comments on ED winter tires service) and drove around with zero problems.

However, the extremely short drive from their drop-off depot to the airport with the factory tires reinstalled was extremely treacherous even in just some light/medium slush-- it was unbelievably hard to handle and I almost pulled over on the highway (and definitely should have) in fear of wrecking.

So, if you car comes with summer high performance tires, my personal opinion, don't be foolish and risk it.
