Match the tires to the conditions. If I'm the Charlotte person worried about needing to drive in the rare dusting of snow situations, maybe just run an all-season in the winter. For those with frequent snows but little accumulation (and needing to often drive on wet roads from melted snow), pick a performance winter. Finally, if you live somewhere that regularly gets multiple inches of snow, pick the snow and ice winter (or leave the M3 at home, and drive a winter beater, since ground clearance is only a few inches).
Good point, I have the WS-70's
