So in your experience the Indy 500s do noticeably worse in the cold? I'm in Denver and a lot winter days around here are 40 degrees and dry (unless there's a snowstorm... but I've got a 4x4 Jeep for that). On days when it's relatively cool and dry, I'd like to still commute in my 330. Interesting that you saw such good performance in the wet, most that I've read say that there's a dropoff from dry to wet.

As long as the Indy 500s are good enough for daily driving in the dry cold that would work for me. Any UHP summer tire is probably going to work similar in those conditions. I just want something that I can drive spirited in the summer when the mood strikes, has manners when cruising, and is at least serviceable in dry cooler weather.
