Some summer "performance" tires are just incredibly bad in even light snow. I learned to drive around Buffalo and have spent time in Williamstown, MA, Ithaca, Syracuse and Maine - a decent snow pedigree. I mostly just used all seasons and didn't give it much of a thought. Then in Maine I got a new '95 Passat and it would slide if there was a snowflake within 10' of it. I thought this is the worst snow car ever and finally figured out it had "performance " tires (though it was hardly a performance car). I put snows on it and it was fine. But with the summer tires it was totally helpless.
