You'll find the low rolling resistance tires don't work in the snow and ice as well as a standard all season tire. The pliability of the tread and a slightly softer sidewall means a great deal in ice and snow performance. As always there's trade-offs with any tire. You're not going to find a tire that scores well in all of your criteria. Currently the best overall all season tire (does well in just about everything including decent tread wear, handling and currently has the best ice and snow traction (for an all season tire) is the Continental Extreme Contact DWS.
