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.

My wife always feels that having snow tires on a car in the winter months is the only way to go......

I have done very little driving so far this winter with my 2003 Honda Accord and I am getting around town with all season radials tires.....

I have in the past put Michelin X Ice winter tires on my car but this year I was waiting for the air bag recall to be done at my local Honda dealership and would get the winters tires put on at the same time.....

The recall was much later coming and has just be completed a few weeks ago...

I now wonder whether I need the winters tires on now since I have driven so little this winter already with my car, always using my wife's car to run most errands and what not and hoping spring is just around the corner and my winter tires can stay in my backyard shed until next winter......
