Traction, or lack of, isn't the only reason why you shouldn't drive with summer tires in the winter months. The temperature is an issue also. The rubber compound in summer tires gets very hard and brittle below 47F and can split or crack very easily. Be careful with bumps and pot holes if you must drive on them over the winter.
