Another option would be to look into Nokian WR+ or GR2 all-weather tires. Basically, the chic at the tire store told me that all-seasons are "summer" tires that you can, but shouldn't, use all year-round. All-weather tires are winter tires that you can leave on year-round.
I have had the WR+ on for 2 1/2 years with no problem in the snow or on ice. And I think I still have 8/32 left. I just put some WR GR2's on the wife's 4 cyl. Accord this fall and she loves them.
Hopefully this year I'll get some UHP or HP all-seasons (since I can get any season at any time in the year), and eventually fade out the WR+'s for some Hakkapaliittas (straight winter).
