Man - you're old!

Just in case your memory isn't what it used to be, as I've posted earlier in this thread, I rotate Summers => All-seasons => Snows => All-seasons to drive the optimum tire for the weather conditions, so I don't completely disagree with you on the capabilities of snow tires, but in my experience I have had some excellent all-season tires that performed well in the snow and some snow tires that didn't live up to their potential. Just my experience, yours may have been different... Pops.
