Are Winter Tires Recommended in March

For those that have experienced Germany and Italy in March weather (March 1 to 14), are winter tires recommended? My pick up vehicle will be equipped with run-flat all-season tires.

I would not expect it to be a problem BUT the weather can be variable and you are right on the edge of the bad weather, and you must account for Austria in the middle. If your tires have "M&S" on them, then you are good.

Thanks for the response, Chuck.
I would like to drop off the car in Italy, so my choices would be to buy appropriate tires, rent tires in Munich and return the car (and tires) back to Munich, or drop off the car at the port after delivery and drive a rental. None of these options are desirable.

Mein Auto: E60 M5,
Frankly dropping off in Italy would be unacceptable to me. The thought of someone else driving my car back to Munich is beyond comprehension, but then I don't buy ordinary cars. I will set my own time, distance, records with my car, not some hot shoe 20 year old in a car he cannot afford.
