I find all seasons, not a jack of all trades, but of mediocrity.

I am so much more confident on my winter setup(purchased for a song). It also allowed me to sell my stockers and buy lighter wheels in their place. RFT's command a premium. The Summer tires I purchase will not cost more, maybe a bit less.

So the car will have more performance 3 seasons out of the year and be much more confident on a dedicated set for the 4th.

Out of pocket for both winter and the upgrade after selling my OE set is under $1600. Totally worth it. Also think of how the wear is now spread out between two sets of wheels and tires. Another benefit.
