See, I'm not looking for "winter" traction, in the Pacific NW we have rain 9 months out of the year and summer tires are the pits for "wet" traction. A top of the line AS will give you excellent "wet" and "dry" traction and fair snow traction. If I were looking at a lot of snow conditions, I'd go dedicated winter tires, but seeing as what we need is something for 9 months out of the year, its hardly worth switching to winter tires.
