I live in the heart of the Colorado mountains and have for 31+ years - Gunnison.

I can't speak directly for the 4Runner as I just got mine this summer. But many, many people get around just fine on all season tires on everything. Subarus certainly get around fine without winter specific tires. We've been driving a Suby for more than 1/2 of our time in CO and it goes just fine.

I plan to stay with the stock tires unless it's proven to me that they just won't work. Got by for 15 years in my Tacoma with tires like Generals, etc.

FWIW I drive cautiously and a little slowly, but I drive through anything and everything in all kinds of weather.

That said, if I lived on the front range or drove I70, and was in a situation where job demands or whatever meant I sometimes had to drive, then I'd certainly consider the winter tires. Not because of the weather but because there are a lot of idiots in the world.
