Well, spoke to my dealer buddy yesterday and while he has his dealership closed, he had no problem digging out my summer rubber for me, which I picked up today. I discovered I had 2x different sharps in my snows, one of them which is causing a leak, a beautiful screw:

Wheels are absolutely filthy, they haven't been washed yet and of course neither have the brakes. I'll probably give it a bath tomorrow. These are at least much easier to clean than the winter rims:

These are the optional sticky rubber, which I opted for when I ordered it. I borrowed the same ones from my buddy's TrackHawk for a bit with my 2016 and was quite happy with the traction. Once they are done they'll be replaced with Michelin's.

It's possible, but unlikely. It's been pretty warm for the last bit, was 13C here today, definitely too warm for the snow tires.

Looks like a perfect candidate for a string plug :P

Nice robertson drive screw.. they are fairly rare down here except for decks and such.

These look to be the same P-Zeros as the ones that came on my Charger. Different size, of course. They're OK, but pretty easy to lose grip with RWD. I'm sure there are better tires out there.

I expect they are, they are an improvement over the all season offerings that come standard. The Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ is available in this size, so that's what I plan on going with unless they come out with the Pilot Sport 4S in this size.

Some here will call that a "death trap" that will soon kill you if you don't immediately buy a new one.

Forget them. Plug or patch it, and drive on with confidence.

Naw, it's only a death trap to those that try to plug tires with the screw near the side of the tire. That one looks like the center so should be fire, any tire shop should fix it. If you feel like being lazy, Goodyear will fix it for free, won't even charge you for balancing.

My dealer will plug it for free, no issues there. They store my tires for me too.

Florida man does not understand what's up here. I do remember back in the day my neighbor had hunting season tires and non hunting season tires.

That's what I asked him, but I guess there aren't many hills out his way. I remember going up to Vermont one May not long ago hearing the sound of studded tires in a parking lot. Haven't heard that noise at home in decades.

Just be sure they don't crack at low temps. If they aren't the all-season version I would expect they can't be used some where below 0C. -7C is Michelin/BFG lowest limit which I flirted with a couple times with the sport comp 2s. They actually worked just fine around freezing even in the wet, but I never got into snow with them thankfully... The sport comp 2's did end up with some odd shoulder tread cracking at the end of 30k km and a couple seasons of autocross, so who knows if it was the cold or the overheating on the track.
