Correct if it pleases you. I thought about it carefully before making a decision based on my needs and the information gathered. As a matter of fact I know quite a few people that drive AWD/4 Wheel and don't have snow tires. I'm pretty sure the majority made a decision based on their needs and the information gathered before they purchased it. To each their own.
