+1 for Discount Tires (I go to their partner chain, America's Tire)
Same here, all seasons are my winter tire as snow is rare, just water and some ice on occasion. I put the Nitto Motivo on my car last month for the winter time. More contact patch than Conti EC DWS'S, better UTQG, asymmetrical but not directional so you can rotate and cheaper to boot! I like Nitto, use them on the track car and after a few thousand miles, been really happy.
