not entirely. ABS doesn't compensate for the lack of grip that such tyres
may afford in wet-road conditions - ABS is there to give you a better chance
of retaining control. If there's no grip, it'll not stop any faster and
under some specialised conditions it won't stop as well.

my opinions are just that
Once, when the secrets of science were the jealously guarded property of
a small priesthood, the common man had no hope of mastering their arcane
complexities. Years of study in musty classrooms were prerequisite to
obtaining even a dim, incoherent knowledge of science.
Today, all that has changed: a dim, incoherent knowledge of science is
available to anyone. - Tom Weller, Science Made Stupid, 1986
