well here in NY we have all seasons which why they call it all season tires.
why make up something that does not exist.
all season tires just like is said good for summer, fall, winter and spring.

This is a bit like saying you have a Leatherman, so there's no reason to ever use pliers, scissors, a screwdriver, knife, bottle or can opener. After all, you have one tool that has all of these, so anything else would be pointless. The difference in performance between having summer tires in warm weather and winter tires in cold weather vs. all-seasons year-round is that dramatic.

I live in Chicago, which like NY gets every season. After the very first year with winter tires on my car, I swore we would never own another car without a dedicated set. Blizzaks went on our new Q7 yesterday.
