Other tire manufacturers do that much better.It is my understanding that the things that make a tire good for ice traction, make it poor for wet traction. Can't violate the laws of physics!
Michelin, Continental and Bridgestone have very similar ice performance, but I didn’t have to keep twice the distance than usual when going behind someone in wet.
Dry performance was also abysmal, and I could balance two other sets of snow tires what is needed just to balance one of their tires.
They were very good in snow and ice. Thing is, other manufacturers are also very good.
We have tires like this in Europe. Debica, Kleber, Tigar etc. They make them with strict emphasis on ice and snow. But they have poor performance elsewhere. However, they also cost 50-60% of what Michelin, Continental, Good Year, Bridgestone or Pirelli cost.
That is why I said, they are Liqui Moly of tire world.
