I have also found this car to be particularly sure-footed, even on stock tires. I agree that snows are better, and I have a set for my old Volvo wagon. That said I don't anticipate shelling out unless we see some real consistent wintry crap. It seems that the good ABS and the traction/stability control can get a lot done with the moderate traction all-seasons afford.
I did one time make the mistake of trying my old Accord on a snow day while I had a set of street slick style summer tires on it. Got hung up trying to go back up the curb into my driveway after getting 100yds down my street and deciding "NOPE"...
