While its true that the use of snow tires is a personnel choice, its very hard to argue with the facts that snow tires are simply superior to other tire use on ice and snow. There's been too many comparison tests to argue this. And anyone who has used snow tires will agree. Millions and millions of them would not be sold if they were not any better than a regular tire in winter conditions. If you "have" to drive in ice and snow snow tires not only give you and edge but the other guy as well. Even a minor fender bender or simply bouncing off of a curb can easily cost the equivalent of a set of snow tires. Like others have said, its added insurance albeit insurance that you do see (and feel) a return from. A serious (and responsible?) driver will use all the proven performance advantages they can to properly prepare for the worst, even thou it may not happen.
