I was running Michelin Pilot Sport summer tires on an Infiniti Coupe with a limited slip diff. When it was less then 50, even on dry pavement, the back end would be squirrelly, even if I feathered the gas. When it was 50 and misty, forget it, no matter how lightly I feathered the gas, the rear tires would slip often. I had them switched to Pilot Sport A/S at the time and ever looked back. I was able to drive normally and not drive like I had egg shells on the accelerator.Well, my experience is completely different. 2005 Mustang GT 5 spd, V8 with Goodyear Eagle Summer tires. Drove the car until Oct 16s each year as insurance 6 month ended there, so convenience to park for winter. Ave high temp is in low 50's ave low is in the lower 30s. Drove it every year in the rain, mist, whatever the weather was. As long as no ice or snow, never had a problem.
These were the same tires that in 1" snow were PATHETIC and useless.
Maybe the Goodyear's just had a more pliable compound. I never liked Goodyear's every tire I had from them were junk. From eagle rsa to eagle F1.
Here is an article from tire rack showing why you shouldn't run summer tires in the cold.
