09 Tires?!?!?!!

Ok, I just got an 09 Coupe with 17" Rims and low profile tires.
I was wondering if anyone has low profile tires on any year and how they do in the snow?
If they are bad I was thinking about getting a winter set that get better traction. Can someone help? Thanks!

i use Pirrelli P6 all seasons, All year long on my 2006 Zx3 SES. frankley... i love the tires because i do a lot of driving... road/off road, snow, rain, anything. i live in NH, and they dont plow the roads for anything less then 4 inches of snow... but i have not gotten stuck yet!

Or if you want a great all season tire so you don't have to swap back and forth you could get the BfGoodrich G-force super sport A/S. I have them right now. They are amazing in wet, dry, and good in snow as well. An awesome tire. Great handling as well. Expensive though. 120 bucks in the size 215/45/17 from tirerack but well worth every penny. I am getting great treadwear as well.
