Is there a tire that is good on snow and ice but still has good wet weather ability?


Thanks!
Yes, many winter tires also have very good wet traction. In particular the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3 does well for a performance oriented winter tire. For something to use in more severe snow conditions I like the Blizzak WS70 and Michelin Xice Xi2.
