Falken FK452 for winter, am I gonna die?

I have Falken FK452's on my OEM 19's, they are nearly brand new. Am I going to die if I run these through the winter?

Yes... Summer tires do not work at freezing temps. You will be driving on slicks.

I took my car out one winter night, DON'T DO IT. I couldn't even get back in my driveway.

This sucks, I had nice all seasons on my previous G35 which was totaled.

My current G came from South Carolina so my OEM's have summer tires on them. Looks like I'm gonna have to drop some serious coin on some all seasons.

I had 452's on my Altima... I was spinning in 2 inches of snow. Not pretty.

Word on the street is, it is like little tiny ice cubes that fall from the sky. Legend has it, if you drive on it without "snow" tires... You will died.

My falken's are doing very well in this "winter" weather... meaning it never snows here and my car doesn't go out in the rain...

I had Kumho SPT summer tires on once during the snow when I switched out of my winter rims too soon. I figured it'd be okay to drive in about 1-2 inches of snow... boy was I wrong. Everytime I touched the gas pedal, the car would start to fishtail and the VDC was saving me.

If I were you, I'd find someone selling used winter tires.
