Winter tires will help protect our expensive machines in the snow......they are amazing with all wheel drive and the engine in the back.............two sets of wheels is the way to go.

This coming from a native of Syracuse (snow belt), New York who knows how to drive in the snow - relatively speaking........( no one knows how to drive on ice once it hits ya) )

Small investment to keep you safe - 2 sets of wheels plus the winter wheels will last at least 5 seasons - November through March......

The winter tires are all 295s....is there any issue with the smaller diameter relative to AWD.

None whatsoever. Four years on that size winter tires on my 2014 991.1 TTS

Agreed. But assuming coldish temps but no snow, like here in NorCal, would you stay with summers all year? If you switch for December- February, go with winters or A/S?

Winter tires all the way during cold season, regardless of whether it's wet or dry. Summer tires are deadly in colder temps (below 45 F) because they harden and won't grip; also, as it gets colder, they're prone to cracking and being ruined. Winter tires are made not only to grip in snow, but also to grip in colder temps when it's dry. And, all-season tires have significantly less grip than winter tires in the cold weather and snow. They're a compromise between summer and winter, and, as a result, they're not as good as summer performance tires in summer or winter tires in winter. That having been said, if it's always dry, all-seasons will be okay in the winter, but I'd be careful about pushing the limits with them.

The best option for the cars is an 11" back wheel and a 295 snow tire. Bridgestone does make the RE980AS tire in 305/30 20, but availability is very scarce (I'm on back order indefinitely) AND they are considerably skinnier than an OEM N-spec 305 summer tire. I would not recommend them for a 12" wheel. Check this out to see....
