But then the winters don't work well above those temperatures. Temperatures across all winter months span the ranges of winter vs non-winter tyres, that's why I'd prefer an all season tyre and not have to worry about it. The marketing comment was down to the fact that I didn't even know winter tyres existed a few years ago and now they are a "must". If we lived in St Petersburg I'd be right up for it, plus studs, but we don't.
