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.
Do not fall in the overkill trap.
For your kind of transportation you do not need a 5 series either.
In 80% of your driving any VW Golf would be adequate.
But than, what the hell, exactly.
