You mean chains or studded tires? I've not heard of doing away with chains, and they're only used as a temporary measure when there is actually snow and ice on the road.

If all the road users were bicyclers, think how long the roads would last not only the surfaces, but the lane geometry...
And road markings like bike lane stripes which routinely get worn away by cars cutting corners in this neck of the woods. Again, studs do way more damage in that regard than ordinary tires.
