Not sure what the issue would be with getting snow tires? Think of it this way, no matter what tires you have on your car, you get a certain amount of wear/miles driven on any tire. So lets say you drive 30K miles per year and you get 30K miles out of your regular season tires before they wear out. You are buying a set of tires every year. But now, you buy a second set of tires that you use for 6 months (winter),... now you will not be buying new tires as often.
For $600, you should be able to get the winter tires you need and should be driving with.
Because...as I said above...I need "something" by Monday. So that necessitates me dropping the $$ on chains as I doubt I'd be able to get a snow tire appointment tomorrow afternoon/Saturday AM. As I alluded to, I'll certainly be going back to snow tires in the future...but probably not this winter.
