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 ... M/S tires and front wheel drive on my car and AWD w/M&S on the wifes SUV seem to be the ticket around here.

No. Front wheel drive and careful piloting makes all-seasons fine on the car.

The 4WD SUV has mud & snow all-terrains to swap to in the winter though.
