these may handle really well for an all season type tire in the summer, but they won't offer the same grip as a true summer, nor the traction of a true winter/snow tire.

and as far as winter and snow, you really need a dedicated winter/ice tire. these will be the only ones to give you good traction in bad weather,
it still is best to have 2 sets, one for each condition.

as an example,in Formula 1, they have 3 different tire types, dry, intermediate, and wets.
and the intermediates don't come close to the performance of either wets in the wet, or dries in the dry.

i think those new tires are for people who don't want 2 sets, and are willing to compromise.
