Yes - If I lived in Snow Country I would...

But you get a second set of rims for the snow tires and your own floor jack, so they can go back and forth as necessary.

Too many places get an early snow-storm and they spend 8 hours in line at a shop getting them changed over - then it all melts, and it's dry for another month chewing up your precious Blizzak's. Swapping mounted tires takes 15 minutes.

And when they are already on the rims, the tire shop can't use the "Well, they're over 6 years old..." excuse to force you to buy new tires. I can tell when they need to go, and when I can get another year safely.

They aren't snow tires, now, they are winter tires, with better ice grip. I have Hankook winter boots on AWD, they sre much better than all-season tires.
