Well "all-season" is a compromise tire for people who live in climates that might only have a few inches of snow a year. It's expensive to keep two sets of tires and rims but if you gotta go in the snow and have no choice then I guess you have to gear up to give yourself the best chances.

where I am in the NE, there's snow and ice starting probably from nov til march. If you have the space (4 set of snow tires and rims are 4 ft tall and 2 ft wide), I would definitely get them plus you average out the wear and tear on the "all season" tires anyways. Snow tires can last quite a few winters.
