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.

On my car, yes. I have an extra set of rims for it so I can avoid the cost of mounting and balancing twice a year.

On my other vehicles, I run all-seasons that get good reviews for ice and snow traction. I've found a few that out-perform the winter tires I have on my car. The surveys on Tire Rack have served me well, but the best tires on ice and snow I've found are the Cooper Discoverer HTP (currently a Discount Tire Exclusive and therefore not on Tire Rack).
