95% on road driver, trips to National parks but nothing that would risk my wife and children getting stuck. Moving to Germany soon (army) and when there is “winter weather” it is illegal to drive on a tire without the 3 peak winter symbol. I currently have an almost new set of Michelin defender LTX all seasons that work fine for how we use the vehicle but it doesn’t have the symbol. Question is- I can get another set of 2013 wheels and put legit winter/snow/ice/ studdable tires on and it would cost about the same as buying an all terrain (ko2) with the 3 peak symbol and installing those on my existing wheels. Can anyone give an opinion on why one course of action would be better or on how good an all terrain actually is in snow/ice?
