I concur with much of what's been said here.

I've been using winter tires on the cars I drive in winter, like my Mercedes, for many years. Learned this when I lived in Germany. Simply, winter tires are for winter and summer tires for summer.

As stated, the wear rates on winter tires will be much worse during summer temperatures, plus you'll get less traction in the summer with winter tires due to the tread patterns.

Someone once told me, "Tires are the only part of the car that touches the ground." So basically, if your a car connesseur, go ahead and buy the right tires for the right time of year.
