Why are there winter, summer and all-season tyres?
Every tyre is a compromise between many factors that can also be interdependent. You can't brake without grip. But then the material of the tyre must also produce grip which strains the road surface. The abrasion in turn pollutes the environment. Different rubber compounds are better or worse resistant to cold. Other compounds are better for rain and snow.
So what's more important? Today the tyre should not make any noise and consume as little energy as possible. The abrasion should also be small so that no fine dust is produced.
