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.

MertieMan unless you have all season radials on your vehicle...

If they are winter snow tires and you use them in the summertime they will ware out very quickly as snow tires are softer rubber not for summer at all.........been there....done that..............

They are on the car in the winter time, so I guess you could call them winter tires, but they will also be on it in the summer time, thus making them summer tires.

Yes for the first time on the BC coast. I have Nokian Hakkapallitas. They appear to be a very good tire.

Yes. Purchased a set for jetta wagen. Can't believe the huge difference they make. I always believed radials did it all.
