I've never had snow tires, I really would like to get some but it seems like it's overkill for my truck. I've never really had issues getting to the mountains, even on the worst of days..
My Infiniti doesn't leave the garage in the winter time!

Just picked up some Yokohama Ice Guard 5's for my evo My last set were IG20's, and to be honest, they still gripped ok after 11years, but the sidewalls had taken their toll over the years and were so wobbly that I finally had to upgrade.
They are at the garage now getting put onto my winter rims. Can't wait to try out these brand spanking new tyres this weekend

|mhaas||I used all seasons on my 4WD pickup. I don't doubt that snowtires make a difference but it really hasn't been an issue for me. 4wd and taking it easy on snowy roads gets the job done for me. Plus I move around a lot so storing extra truck tires would get annoying.|

Financially, owning 2 sets of tires and getting nearly twice the use is pretty much a wash.
