I'd like to hear from drivers that have used 4 season (mountain snowflake) tires like the Goodyear Assurance Weatherready or other brands. Here in Edmonton we don't get a huge amount of snow. In spring we can have 2 months of sunny dry pavement and then get a dump of snow that lasts a few days. Also on trips to the mountains there can be patches of snow. Not looking for high performance just decent traction. I have dedicated winters now but they aren't much better than all season tires on ice. I think replacing the tires every 2 1/2 to 3 years would be better that replacing 2 sets every 5 to 6 like I am now.

Wouldn't make more sense to talk to 2 or 3 tire retailers near you . They might not all agree but by finding out what they recommend to their customers will give you better information then random web responses.

All-season tires are all season, they will work fine in all environments but will never be the best.

FWD and all season tires will do well ... for the most part in snow and ice. But if you get stuck ( I never had that happen) or have to climb a step grade covered with ice! (Had that happen) that is pretty much the limit of adhesion for that combo. :)

All season tires for the year, winter tires for the winter. That is my plan.

So I guess that means no one here has had any actual experience with 4 season (mountain snowflake) tires. In my experience a salesperson they will tell you want to hear so that isn't a good source. That is why I started this thread. To hear about peoples experiences. These tires could be just the thing for many drivers but, at present, the only info I can find is from the manufacturers.
