I would imagine that the winter tires would wear even faster, but I don't have first hand experience with winters tires on my Boxster. I have used Blizzaks on a few vehicles and their traction and wear stunk...

If you want all season wear and traction, the best thing you can do is buy all season tires. They are designed to be the "best" of all worlds and will have a longer life with reasonable traction.
