Ovekvam, I think the big difference is the majority of uk owners will be running wide low profile summer tyres and we have snow on top of ice.
So DTC will give more spin without forward travel just sliding about.

As you will know with proper winter tyres DTC allows enough wheel spin to give added traction to accelerate forward.

Summer tyres on snow just drive extremely slowly

Winter tyres on snow its DTC all the time for me.

Cheers
