Performance winter tires are perfect for that fluctuating temps with little snow and are sooooo much better than all seasonsGood summer tires handle rain just fine too. All seasons have their place though. Where I live, it rarely snows and for about 1/3 the year it does wacky things like drop below freezing overnight, but get into the 40's or 50's during the day. Summer tires are like roller skate wheels at 25 degrees and winter tires feel sloppy at 50. So I use all seasons as my "winter tires", then go dedicated summer tires from April to November.
