LOL @ all the people in this thread advising that AWD will make up for snow tires.

how exactly does AWD make a car stop faster?

I run all seasons in the winter because they came with the car and I'm decent driver and I have a short commute. I wouldn't run summer tires because with some snow on the ground it quickly becomes as issue of not being able to stop.

If you're planning on driving this car next winter then why not buy some used snow tires / wheels now while they are cheaper (towards the end of the season)
