Using all-season most of the year means that I can run the snows only for the few months when they are really needed. yes, i give up some summer performance but its not noticeable under normal street conditions.

+1. Summer as a rule wear quickly and are extremely noisy for my taste too. Toyo Proxes 4 from April to November and Blizzaks December to March!

Well, the problem with running A/S in Early Winter/Late Fall is when some kid runs out in front of your car you will kill him or her. Why?? Because at cold temps. Snow Tires (the rubber) stop shorter, handle better (safer), accelerate better, etc. So for me I run the right tires for the right temp. Why wreck your car or kill someone..

I bought these for our family forester in the spring. So far i'm impressed as they are a huge improvement over stock Yoko Geolandars found on Foresters.
The exaltos are much more quiet, handle great in dry (for a forester that is not being pushed since family is inside) and have good wet grip as well.
We do a lot of trips in this car and I have put about 10000 miles on these tires so far. Recent trip to Badlands NP gave me the opportunity to test them on gravel roads as well and they were very good with not too much "floating" over the rocks.

I have set of Blizzak's on different rims for winter so I don't care for their snow performance.
For the other 3 seasons this Michelin is top notch.
