This is not really a good idea. As was mentioned above, winter tires are made of a softer rubber compound. That means they will wear down much quicker than a tire designed for warmer driving conditions. They are designed for wet slippery driving. Warm, dry pavement is not their friend, it is really their enemy. This is important for a couple reasons. First you will end up replacing your tires more frequently simply from wear. The primary reason for leaving snow tires on all year would be to eliminate the need for another set of tires but quicker wear will mean you will actually be buying tires more often. Secondly, a deep tread is important for a snow tire to be most effective. The tread helps the tire dig into snow and ice and the deep channels help to divert slush from under the tire. As the tire is worn by summer driving, its effectiveness in the winter is significantly diminished. Another reason to change tires as soon as the snow clears for good is for a more comfortable ride. All season tires and summer tires among other things are engineered for a comfortable ride. Snow tires are not. All season and summer tires are engineered to be quiet on the road, winter tires tend to be quite loud on the road. Since you are using a good snow tire, you can put a summer tire on your car for better performance. In this way you will be using tires specifically designed for the seasons you are driving in. This way you can achieve better traction and a smoother and quieter ride in all seasons.
Designed for extreme off-road conditions and little else, rock crawling and mud terrain truck tires employ aggressive tread designs that extend to the sidewalls, giant lugs with deep voids, and reinforced sidewall construction to create tires that will grip any surface and remain durable in the process. Extreme terrain off road tires typically carry many of the same features, and consequently many mud terrain tires make excellent rock crawling tires, and vice versa. Extreme terrain off road tires come in either radial or bias ply, but do their job best in a low air pressure bias ply, which allows the tread to conform to surfaces for increased traction. Yet despite that extreme terrain off road tires are composed of durable, cut and puncture resistant compounds, they usually do not produce very much mileage when driven on the street, particularly at high speeds. In addition, due to the wild tread designs and huge lugs, extreme terrain tires can cause a bumpy ride and are quite noisy on the road.
Trailer tires are designed to roll freely and resist the pressure and friction during braking. They are also designed with thicker sideways to minimize the risk of damage due to rubbing on the curb as you pull up to park. They are not designed for traction or for torque and should not be used in the steer or drive positions for safety reasons. Many of the top lines of trailer tires now are designed to be puncture resistant or to have construction options that help then stand up to contact pressure, withstand heat better to help minimize the degradation of the tread over the miles and to also prevent the tire from becoming extremely rigid in cold weather. Puncture resistant trailer tires are also a consideration and are used by many large fleets as a cost and time saving option for long haul routes as well as short deliveries.
