Winter tires on all 4 wheels make sense in areas that receive snow.

My 3 years in Europe saw drivers carrying chains, the only way to go through the Alps from Switzerland to Italy. No chains no go.

Winter tires only makes sense if installed on all 4...installing on 2 is stupid according to all the experts..creates uneven stopping ability.

Yep. Just a few months more and it's time for the All-Seasons to make way for the Winters again.
