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 are a must on both my wife's Honda CRV and my crew cab F150.The difference in traction and handling is very noticeable. The winters go on mid October and come off the end of April

I don't use winter tires. With my car I don't see the benefit.

No, all season tires. Apparently winter tires can be more than the snow tires that I used long ago.
