    There are tires specifically for driving on ice - snow studs, or chains.

    If your wheels won't slip on ice you need a tune up.

    Studded tyres are brilliant on hard packed snow and ice.

    Well, back in the good old days, when men were men, dad used to get up an hour earlier after some nasty weather and put the tire chains on the drive wheels of the car. Sometimes, depending om the vehicle, you could put one chain on a drive wheel and one on a front tire. Or chains all around, front and rear tires. Chains in those days were good old chains. They would dig into the ice and snow and worked way better than snow tires. I don't even know if they make chains for car and light trucks anymore. Some of the cable "chains" that truckers use don't measure up to the old school chains.

    All car wheels will slide on ice. You can however buy car tires that are better on slippery surfaces.

    No.  Studded tires will help a lot but they won't prevent slipping under any condition.

    Spiked tires won't slip on ice.

    Studded snow tires are the best way to avoid slipping.

      Not legal in some of the places where one would think they are really needed.
