Thanks a lot PROESL,
I think I had left out one possibility.
These tyres are to drive on icy roads (with).
I think it is technically correct, but I don't think it sounds natural.
I would rephrase the sentence in this way.
These tires are made to drive on icy roads.
Here's another possibility, and even better, as in a more logical phrasing of the intended meaning.
These tires are meant for icy roads.
Note: tires - American English - tyres - British English
