Goodyear F1s in cold temps?

I do not drive in the snow/ice in the winter months. I know that the Goodyear F1s are a summer tire. My question is; are there major traction problems running F1s on dry roads if the temp. is 35 F. or lower. Can the tires heat up enough to decent traction? Just take it easy?

Thanks for any input!

I've driven on summer tires in sub freezing temps before in dry weather. Just take it easy and be aware that there will be reduced grip.

Hmm...I was wondering why my F1's weren't gripping so well. It's like 45 degrees in Tampa right now! :brrr:
