The lack of a lateral groove does limit snow traction. Pardon the comparison but imagine an old steamboat. The paddle wheel moving through the water is like the lateral grooves pushing off the snow. The smaller the paddle the less the boat will move, same goes with a car's tire. So if the lateral groove goes all the way through the tire, to the edges. It would be definitely better than one that stops before the run of treadblocks at the sidewall. When I wasn't running Blizzak's myself, I used tires made for Sears by Michelin, the Roadhandler Sport(blackwall)/Weatherwise(whitewall) tire. I thought about getting their X1 equivalent, but the outside treadblocks were not open. So I opted for better traction and less mileage. This was in southern New York.
