so looks like it will be a game time decision for me on this one

thanks for taking the time to answer my question

This is not good advise. Summer tires in your width are not effective in snow, the rubber compound gets too hard in cold temperature and can't sustain traction (as others have said).

Honestly, your most economical option is probably to rent a different car if this is a one time trip. It's not worth the investment in winter tires in your size for just one trip. Have fun!
