They will wear slower if anything. The tire is colder and harder which means less friction is being generated by the tire. You can use a conti DW safely in near or below freezing temperatures, just be aware that they have a reduced amount of grip when its that cold outside. Ive daily driven on star specs, Kumho XS, and now Im on R-S3s year round in northern california. Even with temps below freezing you can safely drive on all of them. Besides the Conti DW compound is just about the best wet weather tire on the market right now and is a very soft compound despite its 340 utqg rating. Bottom line you can do it, snow tires will be completely unnecessary if you're not driving through snow.
