I've lived here many years but always had AWD SUVs before so I am not sure.

Here in Mass, we have the concept of a "wintah beetah," an old car with a bent frame that drives down the road at an angle. The best way to avoid having your F30 side-swiped by the wingnuts driving their beetahs in winter weather is to leave your car at home.

Seriously, the question is do you have drive at all on the few days/hours where you really need winter tires? If you need an all-terrain vehicle to get around Seattle on a given day, that's a good day to stay indoors.
