Attacking Mid is on a distinguished road
I had an Isuzu pickup in a total sideways drift at about 75 mph on I-45 along the western side of downtown Houston a number of years ago when a little rain fell on an oil-slicked freeway. It was literally like hitting black ice.

While there's no question snow tires are vastly better on snow/ice (studded even better!), I agree with nick... that there is a huge range of effectiveness when it comes to A/S tires. Some are worthless like summer tires and others are.... not terrible. Living in CO on the front range, we see about 355 days of dry pavement and 10 days of snow each year. I can't justify changing to winter tires, but I do choose my A/S tires with a nod toward snow performance. I have the Discount Tire version of the DWS on my wife's car and they're.... okayish in snow. Reading reviews, the genuine DWS is better.
