Technically tires matching road conditions will give you more lateral grip, so you can go quicker before you'll slide. Winter tires for snow, ice tires ice, and summer tires summer. All season will have less grip in any of these conditions than tires made for it. Although you can go faster I wouldn't advise speeding in snow just because you have snow tires.

Of all conditions I'd say the worse by far is slush. Or slush over ice. Sometimes I'll be driving along and suddenly the wheel is weightless. That's when you let off the gas and slowly bring the speed down till the weight in the wheel returns.

The scary part is driving on a two lane and hydroplaning off some slush while passing a logging truck head on.

Everyone drive safe and have a good winter!

Performance one step at a time.
