Curious what owners in the upper Great Lakes region are running for Spring, Summer, Fall?

I'd LOVE to replace the OEM tires with some high performance summer tires, but feeling like I need to stick with all season uhp for those dreaded transition months of March, April – Nov and Dec.

Any advice?

I've got ContiSportContact summer tires and Blizzak winter tires. I've used this combo for over a decade on various cars. I had a set of Pilot Sports, summer only, on one car for a few years and those were great, too.

In Minneapolis, my winters go on Nov 1st give or take a week and my summers go on May 1st give or take a week.

Summer tires are the best in summer. Winter tires are the best in winter. I think winter tires are as good as all seasons in the shoulder seasons with the only caveat for winters being potentially more wear due to high temps.
