No one tire can do everything. In Quebec, Canada, snow tires are mandatory by law over the winter months. Drivers will be ticketed if they don't comply. People take them off ASAP after winter because the softer, stickier compound wears down rapidly if used in summer. Most people in the snow belt would not even consider using all-season or summer tires in the winter.
