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.

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

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.
