DWS's are terrific tires. Will they be as good as 275/315 snows, no. Will 275/315 snows be better then a narrower set of snows, no. But any of those options is going to be better then Summer UHP tires.

Thanks so much for the links. That's really what I've been hunting for, actual practical knowledge of the real word trade-offs specifically on the 275/315's. Of course winters are better in snow, of course narrow is better...but how passable are the all season models. There are a few other DWS reviews, seems harder to find people using latitudes on the 20s.

For some, the changeover hassle and storage required may not be worth the benefit if they can realistically still get home that rare snowstorm night on all seasons. I live in that borderline region, not enough snow to be constantly concerned, but enough to make sure I'll be able to move.
