Winter tires in summer temperatures?

What are the disadvantages of driving winter tires in 70+ temperatures (trips from NJ to Gulf Coast in mid January)?

winter rims

I have a '18 Cayman with 19" wheels and want to buy smaller (narrower?) rims for winter tire set up. Will older Cayman or Boxster rims fit my car? I want to keep the spedo working properly & the TPMS too.

No matter how much I scrub and no matter what solution I use, my tires still have a brown coating after washing.  How can I clean my tires?

Summer tire use in winter

I just purchased a 2014 Cayman S from a dealer 70 miles from home. Will I cause damage to the summer tires if I drive it home when the temperature is below 40 degrees, and how much traction loss will I have ?  I do not plan to drive it in winter.

Wheel fit for Cayman 718

I just bought a 718 Cayman S.  It came with 20" wheels (8" wide in front and 10" wide in rear.)  Friends and enthusiasts are telling me I need to get a second set of wheels to be able to have tires for the track and tires for everyday and winter.  I found a set on the PCA classifieds but the rear wheels are 11" rims.  My car came with 10" rims.   Does anyone know if I can put the 11" rims on my car?  The offset is different so it seems most of the extra inch will be inward, not outward.

Replacement Brake Pads and Tires for 2009 Cayman


Looking for advice on replacing brake pads and tires

I bought a 2009 Cayman (base) in June 2016 with 36K miles.

i have added 4K miles in the last year, some of it on DE days and autocross.  The pads will need replacement soon and the tires later.  I believe I have OE pads and OE drilled rotors.  Rotors look good to my untrained eye.

I am looking for a compromise street and track pads and tires.  I am not interested in changing out pads or tires for an event.
