In a transitional area like Philly, where you don't usually get a lot of snow, it may be more hassle than it's worth. High performance all seasons offer usually about 85% to 90% of the performance of high performance summer, but can do duty in the cold and snow if pressed. Not nearly as good as snows, but if snows aren't necessary (i.e. roads quickly plowed or snow quickly melts) can be fine.

My Pilot Super Sports are certainly overkill here with the type of driving and roads in Houston, but what the hell.
