    unless you are driving through deeper snow/slush, the tread design doesn't do much. on mostly clear roads, the difference is entirely the rubber compound.

    so do most people buy a second set of rims for thier car to fit winter tires, or do most people just change out their tires twice a year. Also, can tires become compromised after being changed so many times?

    I run both a summer and winter set of tires/rims.
    The winter tires work so well, it doesn't matter if it's snowing out, I know my Subaru and I can go out in Denver even in the worst weather when everybody else is having trouble.

    Not only is the rubber made for cold weather, but also look at the tread design here:
