That last point is what a lot of people miss out on. Most just see the need for getting through snow and not about traction when it's cold in other situations.

Some performance winter tires would get anyone through winter, wet/dry roads and granted not driving like a dumbass in the snow would help...

through my experience they go a long way in helping

never used to run winters,
always had all seasons till they got too unsafe for winter, then went for winters.

of course, even the worst winter tire will outperform the best winter rated all season. It was a cost consideration, and Nokian is a reputable and trusted brand when it comes to winter driving, thats why I was comfortable. As always the tires are just an advantage you add to being cautious not a be all end all solution...
