My concern with dedicated winter/summer tires goes beyond the initial purchase cost of wheel/tire/tpms sensors(?). Without going into detail, suffice it to say Michigan has way worse of a snow situation than southern PA. There’s maybe 10/365 days where there’s measurable snow on the roads around here... usually from a handful of major nor’easters rather than constant lake effect variety. Not enough to warrant snow tires for the other 80 days of winter. And our cool transitional falls and springs last a long time, ideal to neither hardened summer rubber or sloppy winter rubber.

Though after further consideration if I go all-season, might as well opt for the best with the savings from another set... guess I’ll splurge for the Bridgestones.
