Tire design is a never ending trade off of performance in various categories. They best snow tire is likely to wear out very fast and also have poor dry weather handling characteristics. Likewise, a long lasting "highway tire" is going to suck in the snow. You didn't mention any models for any of the three brands, but I can assure you that Michelin, General and Firestone all make tire models that are "so bad in the wet and snow", as well as models that work great in the snow (but suffer in other areas of performance).
In other words...your tires are the wrong model for your needs as opposed to the wrong brand.
