I have lived here since 1979, but never before with 425 ft/lbs of torque.
The Conti DWS's are great all seasons as cssnms indicated. Personally (also a MDer), I run a square Blizzak (winter performance, not snow) setup in the winter just for added peace of mind / safety. I drive about 100 or so miles a day and the last thing I want is to make my wife come pick me up or to get stuck using one of my clients hotels in the event of a bad snow/ice storm. I also do a lot of driving in DC where it seems like every other road is a sheet of 4" thick badly uneven ice.

Perhaps most importantly, though, I like running summers in the non-winter

For some perspective though, I also use winter performance tires on my wife's x5 (mostly for braking purposes) as I try to be as risk-averse as possible when it comes to the little lady & the offspring.
