    I think most drive FWD cars with all-seasons

    I know I did when I had an Integra. With RWD M3 and its summer tires snows were a must.

    The amount of people in bmw, mercedes, and

    other rwd cars without snow tires astonish me. My summer tires do diddly squat in ANY amount of snow. They don't even stick well when it's cold out.

    Negative

    The majority of people here(MA) go with all season tires. The further North you go the more you will see winter/summer rims and tires.Big Sandy

    Why - because they own their cars as status

    symbols, and know nothing about how they actually function.

    disagree. every bimmer i see, i check out the


    wheels, just to see what kind of snows they are running.

    i would not say a majority of people run all-seasons. there are a lot of people running snow tires in the Boston area. of course my sampling data is confined within the bounds of Waltham, Newton, Wellesley, Natickk, Wayland, Weston ... where there is a large percentage of BMWs/MB's due to status symbols. The elitists also have common sense the the $$$ the buy a second set of wheels you know.

    I disagree too and I see lots of switchers

    I switch to snow tires on old non-sport rims to save my style 19's on which I have some nice summer performance tires. I found that all seasons were wrong for the conditions 70% of the time.

    All seasons don't bite enough in the snow and they don't grip enough in the dry of summer. Unless of course you are driving your BMW like a girl, then you won't feel the difference.
