Check with tirerack.com. My experience has been that a good all-season will get you through a few days of snow - if you drive appropriately. This means taking it really easy when braking and turning and expecting the drive wheels to spin abit. You would have to use common sense and stay off the roads until they are reasonably clear. Remember - our parents did just fine with the old bias-ply tires - they just took it easy and there was less traffic. The problem will be if you have tried a good dedicated winter tire in the snow and ice. You will never be satisfied with the performance of any all-season tire in the snow. I have a garage with hydraulic service jacks and an air compressor. It makes it really easy to change tires in a few minutes. When the tire are off the car I inspected the brakes, suspension, and CV joint boots- which you should do on a regular basis anyway.
