How about it? Just put on summers in the summer and winters in the winter? Or just say the heck with it and put winter tires on your car all year long, switching them out only when they get worn down for another set of winter tires that will see duty up to and through July 9?

All season tires just seem like a pointless compromise to me. They’re there so you don’t have to go down to the tire store and dirty up your back seat with the used set you’re bringing home, except you need to do that anyway. If you really want to not have to change your tires every season, just drive on your winters in August.
