It is normal. High performance summer tires are just that. The rubber compound in a summer tire is designed to grip better and perform better in warm temperatures. At 34 degrees or any temp around it the rubber is not flexing like it was designed. You ought to be able to carry a slideways drift down a straight road! Be careful.Anyone else noticing a lot more wheel slippage with cooler temperatures? I've had a couple days at about 2 degrees above freezing and I was breaking my tires loose all the time.
Admittedly the Michelin's are probably the best tires I've had on a car so I'm sure it's mostly normal.
