Just trying to help people save their time and money. Also to reinforce safe driving. All seasons is not for everybody. But skilled drivers can do just as well with very little difference. That said if its my son or daughter I'm not saying this. Which is fair enough.

For inexperienced drivers snow tires are better I guess.

In anycase its just a discussion, no ill will or anything and just putting different information out there.

If anything all the advertising that tells me I'm irresponsible, terrible, and harm children and families if I don't have snowtires kind of offends me. So theres a bit of reaction with the mercantile approach to selling these tires. The product is better than the way its sold lol.
I don't respond well to being guilted into purchasing something I feel isn't needed.
