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.

Don't need them here. I used to have them, when I lived in up-state New York. Everybody had two sets of rear tires.
