comment What's a good all purpose city commuting winter tire?
@NeilFein I included that info because I figured winters elsewhere vary in terms of snowfall, rainfall, how the city reacts (salting roads, clearing bike paths), etc. But you're right a general answer would be better if possible.

It sounds like there will be times of ice, times of snow, and times where it's just wet. I'm not sure how I would know ahead of time when/where there'll be ice, so it sounds like I need studded tires all the time? Is there a good all-purpose winter tire that will cover all those conditions?

Commute is 4.5 miles each way. This is my first NYC winter so I'm going off Wikipedia. The averages for January, which is the coldest month, are: low of 26F, high of 38F, 4 inches of rain over 10 days, and 8 inches of snow over 4 days. Other info: they salt the roads, they're supposed to be pretty quick at clearing snow too but I'm not sure if that applies to the dedicated bike paths on my route.
