not having winter tires on your car is like playing goal without a mask... sure a puck never it you in the face, but chances are if you do get hit in the head with a puck you'll sure wish you were wearing a mask.

Oh, and if you need more proof...

In a braking test (from 50 km/h to a full stop), the car with winter tires took 18 metres to stop whereas the car with all-season tires took 27.1 metres (33.6% less distance or a two car-lengths difference).
