We live in Britain not Siberia so unless you live in deepest darkest rural Scotland or somewhere similar, winter tires are a waste of time and money. Just drive a little slower\more carefully and if it's so bad (very doubtful, last time we had any really show stopping snow was about 15 years ago) then just don't go out that day.
Driving for 20 years in the UK and never needed winter tires.
The religion that is 'Winter Tyres' will smite you,and no doubt a fatwa will quickly follow.
