Im thinking of summer tires, say somthing like the kumos, now i know they would be horrible in the snow, but how about in the cold in general? Say its 20 degrees but dry... would they ruin the tires that way?

from what i heard from my friends, unless it SNOWS, otherwise summer tires should be no problem. he said even under raining condition summer tires are fine too

this is what he said and i have no idea whether it's truly right or wrong. but at least he's from vancouver and when he was there, he didn't change his tires to snow tires until it started to snow

The winter tires will work fine in 20 degrees but not as good as it would in hotter temps. I had my summers on for the first half of the winter and they were aite as long as there was no snow on the road. But it actually took a while of driving to warm up the tires and feel them stick better.

that's understandable. z rated tires you usually have to heat them up so they "melt" a bit for better grip
