Winter tires will never have the dry traction of regular (all season or summer) tires. They will much more easily break free than regular tires triggering the tracton control . But as you already know when a tire is manufactured they coat the tire mold with a slippery release compound so they can get the tire out once it is made. This will make any new tire more slippery for up to 200 miles. It should improve in a while after it wears off.
