Texas Summer Tires

Who in Texas runs summer tires all year round? My new to me M240i has Michelin PSSs on it and I would like to keep them all year round but wanted to see if others have done this.

Probably be fine if you're in places with a much milder winter like Austin or Houston. Anything north you may experience some periods of inconvenience during the winter.

The key is to not have them in sub 40 degree temps for extended periods. So not much of an issue if it warms up during the day.

Be aware that when the tires are cold that you will lose some braking performance.

I run the MPSS all year in Raleigh, NC. Keep it in the garage when temps run below 30. No issues.
