I will say again that I drove in the north in snow and ice for about 30 years on all season tires without issues. 15 years in Pittsburgh, Pa. Also a few years in Philly, KC, and Omaha. Snow tires are better but not enough different to make up for a driver with low ability to control oversteer and understeer. If the driver is careful and adequate, all seasons are good enough.

I bought Michelon pilot super sports because I drive my SUV when the roads are questionable. I am much more worried about being hit than my car with summer tires.
