On my 5KCSTQ, I had a set of Yokohama AVS U+4 all season tires
(205/60-15 V-rated). I left them on all year and never had any
problems in the mountains in the snow. This included many apre-ski
runs across Rabbit Ears Pass in blizzard conditions. I agree that
snow tires (Blizzaks) are definately better, but not absolutely
necessary. I learned this at the Steamboat ice driving school where
almost everyone else had new Blizzaks on their cars. Quattros with
four Blizzaks are simply awesome!
