I thought I was a nice jester

15 days below freezing would probably be enough to persuade me not to run a summer tire

OP said central Texas. Depends on the part of central TX they're in, but at least in Austin, the overnight low gets below freezing for about that many nights all winter. It warms back up during the day; it's not continuous. Once you get deep into what's known as the Hill Country, winters can be a bit colder.

I've only lived in central TX since August (though I've spent a couple of winters in Hill Country), but this past "winter" seemed like fall in north TX. Which really doesn't get that much colder, but north TX (DFW) is prone to ice storms when they do get winter precip (DFW is prone to more interesting weather in general...).

Central TX actually has some hills, once you get west of Austin.
